NO BAKE…STILL A CAKE

Fresh fruits always give that extra kick to the desserts and make them magical!! I believe that the best part of summer are fruits. Mango is one fruit that brings out the child in you. They don’t grow well in Assam due to pests and the weather. A few indigenous variety does grow but they lack the meatiness. so, we depend on our import from West Bengal. but they were very expensive. During my doctorate days in West Bengal, I had an overdose of mangoes. They were in abundance during the season if you are crazy about them, you could eat a kilo every day. 

Mango Lassi is like a staple drink whenever you eat out, especially spicy Indian food. So, when it comes to desserts, this one is my favorite mango based dessert. and it super easy to make. I use plain greek yogurt along with cream cheese just to feel better when I eat it. 

Honestly, whenever I had store bought cheesecake, it would leave me feeling heavy. so, yogurt makes it light and healthier without compromising on taste. so, do try it and let me know.
