No Bake Mango Cheesecake is delicate, creamy, luscious, and no baking required! Top it with sweet mangoes for a delicious summery dessert.

Got some leftover cream cheese? I love using this tangy, creamy ingredient in my desserts! Make a batch of these delicious Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies, or treat yourself to this amazing Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.

Mango Cheesecake Recipe

I’ll admit it— cheesecakes are my weakness. It’s impossible to resist that buttery crust and the rich, creamy baked cheesecake. I love how customizable it is too! Top with chocolate, fruits, fold in some Oreos, chocolate chips, or whatever else I’m in the mood for. It’s absolute dessert heaven.

However, there are days when I just don’t want to face a hot oven just to get my cheesecake fix. The solution? A no-bake version!

It’s insanely creamy thanks to the two kinds of cheese I use. Instead of the dense texture of the baked version, this one is more mousse-like, with a serious hit of sweet, mango goodness which I fold right into the batter. Finally, I pile it high with whipped cream for pure cheesecake bliss. Best of all, no baking involved!

How to make No Bake Mango Cheesecake

Make the crust:

  • Combine sugar, biscuit crumbs, and melted butter. Press into a pan and chill.

Bloom the gelatin:

  • Sprinkle gelatin on cold water. Whisk, and microwave. Whisk again until you have a gelatin mixture.

Prepare the filling:

  • Process mango chunks until smooth. 
  • Mix the sugar and two kinds of cheese. Set aside.
  • Whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla until you get stiff peaks. 
  • Fold into cheese mixture.
  • Add the pureed mangoes to the gelatin. Combine with cheesecake batter. Gently fold in the rest of the mangoes.
  • Spread on top of the crust.
  • Chill for several hours to overnight.

Make the whipped cream:

  • Whip the cream and sugar together.

Serve:

  • Pipe the whipped cream on the cheesecake.
  • Top with chunks of mango.
  • Slice and enjoy it!

What cream cheese brand is best to use?

It depends on what’s available in your area. Keep in mind that different brands also have different tastes and textures. Some are tangier, while others are on the sweet and creamy side. 

I find this cream cheese comparison guide from The Kitchn really useful when selecting brands.

Can I use frozen mangoes?

Sure, but note that they can become watery as they reach room temperature. So I recommend letting them defrost first, then straining out any excess liquid before adding them to the filling. 

How to bloom gelatin?

It’s really easy! Just sprinkle the gelatin into any liquid (in this recipe, it’s cold water). Let it sit for a few minutes, heat it up to dissolve the gelatin, and get it ready for your recipe.

Can you make it ahead?

Absolutely. You can prepare the components ahead, then assemble it on, chill, and then you’ll serve it. You can also freeze the entire cheesecake. 

How to freeze a no-bake cheesecake?

Freeze it by itself after it was chilled and sliced, or in the pan.

Use plastic wrap and foil. Keep for up to three months.

Recipe Tips:

  • To make sure it’s fully set, chill it overnight.
  • Fold all components gently so that the filling doesn’t deflate.
  • For the cream cheese, use full-fat to avoid a runny texture.
  • Chill the bowl you’ll be using for whipping.

Cheesecake is a weakness of mine too! LOL. I usually lean toward Strawberry or like a Cookies and Cream type of flavor, but this sounds tasty.

I'm actually not a fan of mango! I've never had them in a recipe I like. I would probably switch out the fruit for raspberries if I made this recipe.

Usually, people shy away from adding mango to cheesecake. I Love cheesecakes and it is always strawberry or blueberry and good to see you add mango. I love this recipe and will try it this weekend.

Looking forward to trying this. A few questions.. it says if you don't have a springform pan that you can use a 9x13, would that make them more into bars then? And about how many fresh mangoes will yield 4 cups? How big do you leave the chunks that you fold in? Thanks for your feedback!

Reply

Yes, it will be more like bars. For the Mango puree, I usually use canned mangoes. If you want to use fresh, you may need about 8, depends how large they are. The chunks that I fold in, are bit size, 1/2 an inch.
