Just a nice wee treat for two 🙂 There is not too much of it, so you don’t end up having to struggle to finish the serving! It also only has to set for about half an hour; as you can see, my auntie and I were pretty keen for a cheesecake fix….. The water crackers in the base make the texture really nice and not too dense and sweet; you can use them or graham crackers if you want.

Mini Lime and Mango Cheesecakes for Two
Ingredients:
Base:
4 water crackers
1 tsp honey
25g butter, melted
Lime zest
Filling:
75g cream cheese
1 Tbsp lime zest
Agave/honey to taste
Topping:
1/2 a mango
To serve:
Limes slices, optional

Instructions:
Crush up the water crackers until fine and mix with the honey, butter and lime zest. Press into the bottom of two ramekins or silicone cupcake cases. Chill for 10 mins until set.

Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese till soft and add the lime zest and agave/honey. Spoon onto the bases and even out the top. Chill for half an hour until slightly set.

Meanhile (again!) cut the skin off the mango and microwave it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until it has thickened.

When ready to serve, un-mold the cheesecakes, spread some mango on top and arrange a lime slice on top. Serve!
