After my berry cheesecake slice was such a success I wanted to try another “healthy” style cheesecake. Last night I made this Mango cheesecake with pineapple and topped with raspberries, it was sweet and tangy and creamy and just beautiful.

We had some for afternoon tea today and it was perfect, served slightly cold it is refreshing and would be a great dessert for a dinner party or for afternoon tea anytime!
