Stem Ginger Mango Cheesecake Parfait #SpringSweetsWeek

This is an easy, make-ahead, no cook or bake recipe that you'll always long to have again and again! The ginger and mango pair well with the cream cheese and cream making this  luscious dessert as the most wanted one. This recipe is eggless too!

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

This recipe uses fresh mangoes from Melissa's Produce and Nairn's ginger oat graham crackers. There is no canned mangoes or pulp used. Only fresh mangoes and that gives a vibrant flavor to this dessert! Nairn's ginger oat crackers were amazing, the right amount of ginger and we loved it. 

In addition, I have added candied ginger pieces chopped and added in the mango cream cheese mixture. Bites of ginger candy here and there are lovely! The balance is perfect and not overpowering ginger flavor. Mango and ginger pair well and compliment the flavors! 

This luscious and dreamy dessert is not overly sweet. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and is perfect for us. Ripe mangoes are sweet and with a little condensed milk added, the sweetness was just right! If you have a very sweet tooth, add a little sugar to the cream cheese mixture. The right size of the serving and the right amount of sweetness makes this a purely enjoyable dessert! I would call this heaven!

This is a no cook or no bake recipe. It is easy to assemble once you gather everything together. Whip the cream cheese and fresh mango pulp with a little condensed milk. Crush the Nairn's ginger oat graham crackers and mix with melted butter. Layer these two mixtures and add whipped cream. Top with some chopped mangoes and mint for garnish. 

This is a make ahead recipe. When you have a time crunch, this recipe would be your savior. Layer these and refrigerate even overnight. When it is time to serve, just top with chopped mangoes and add mint. The layers would have set perfectly and this portioned dessert is easy to serve. The only problem is that you'll need more of this tasty dessert as you and your guests will want more. But, no problem at all! The recipe could be doubled or tripled easily.

I have a sweet confession to make. I am addicted to mangoes, I just can't stop myself! The bright and ripe sunshine colored pulp is absolutely divine to gobble as such or in any desserts too! I love the unripe mangoes in savory dishes too and here are the links to amazing savory and sweet addictive mango recipes to try.
