Mango CheeseCake

Mango CheeseCake is always fantasized me as I didn’t have it anywhere. So I was wondering how it could taste. This is my first trial of a cheesecake and it came out so well. As the season of mango is in and I am all set that I made this dessert.

My love for mango cannot be frazzled enough and tried this scrumptious cake which tasted so heavily. This recipe doesn't require any baking.

Its light silky texture, smooth creamy is fun to make and tastes so delicious which impresses everyone and everyone will surly ask for another lovely bite!!
