Mango & Passionfruit Cheesecake Recipe

I made a vanilla and passionfruit cheesecake the other day, it was a lush but a bit of a mess for not using the wrong size tin (I might post the recipe, and you’ll have to knowingly nod at the photos!). 

Trying to get more fruit into the day, and pretending things are healthy, I went for a take two with mango, and went back to trusty individual dishes, which is definitely good for ensuring your slice doesn’t *accidentally* become a bit bigger.Mango & Passionfruit cheesecake recipe

I also made an alternative, to pacify the hubby that it really was healthy, using granola as the base. I used dried raspberries rather than a passionfruit topping for an added slight calorie reduction. This option I like to think is the perfect lunchtime treat when you’re having a bad day, with enough goodness to get you through the afternoon!

      It is great to get some different fruits into their diet- especially when I know they love the smoothie version! x
