Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup mango puree
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored powdered gelatin (one-half 1/4-ounce envelope)
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick (1/4 pound) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
  • 2 cups cold heavy cream
  • 2 firm-ripe mangos, peeled, seeded and sliced, garnish
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the graham crackers with 1/4 cup of the mango puree and mix well. Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake until firm, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

In a small saucepan, heat the lime juice and gelatin over low heat until the gelatin dissolves, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the cream cheese, butter, sugar, and lime zest until light and fluffy. Add the softened gelatin and remaining 3/4 cup mango puree and mix to combine.

In a clean bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold into the mango mixture and pour over the crust, smoothing the top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.

To serve, slice and garnish each serving with 2 mango slices.
