Cheflandria's ThoughtsBy Cheflandria
This dessert is dear to my heart because I created it from my love for tropical fruits.
I love mangoes and wouldn’t mind having a cheesecake full of mango flavors.
I had a nice trick for the crust that brought out the citrus aroma of the cheesecake.
If you have a melon baller, make some balls to garnish before serving to guests. Do not garnish until service because the fruits tend to discolor. Save the balls or cut up mangoes or even more orange zest for topping.
I like mine simple with the mango balls at the edges, but you can go crazy! Have fun with decorating in any form.
