Kiwi and Mousse No-Bake Cheesecake

Kiwi and Mousse No-Bake Cheesecake

Very pretty no-bake (or rare) cheesecake-mousse with kiwi sauce!

Ingredients: 8~10 servings in a 6 cm plastic containers or 1 whole cake worth

Crust:
Biscuits
100 g
Butter
50 g
No-Bake Cheese Batter:
Cream cheese
100 g
Plain yogurt
120 g
Heavy cream
150 g
Granulated sugar
60 g
Lemon juice
15 g
Gelatin
3 g
Water
15 g
Kiwi Syrup:
Kiwi
2
Honey
10 g
Lemon juice
a small amount

Steps

1. Cover the bottom of the plastic containers with aluminum foil. Add butter to a bowl, and melt in a hot water bath or in the microwave.
2. Place the biscuits into a bag, crush, mix with the melted butter, and firmly press down into the bottom of the containers.
3. Add softened cream cheese and granulated sugar to a bowl, and then add in the lemon juice once it becomes smooth.
4. Dissolve the gelatin in water and place into a hot water bath. Add the heavy cream to another bowl, and whip until it thickens.
5. Add the yogurt, gelatin, and the heavy cream from Step 4 to Step 3 in that order, and mix together.
6. Spoon in the batter into the cups, smooth out the surface with the back of a spoon, and chill in the fridge until it solidifies.
7. Make the syrup. Add the kiwi (discard the white cores), honey, and lemon juice (optional) to a bowl, and mash.
8. Top Step 6 with the kiwi sauce from Step 7, and decorate with whipped cream or fruit if desired...
9. This version uses heart shaped cups. Unfortunately the cups were too deep and I couldn't line the bottoms with the cookie base. You can use a sponge cake base instead.

Story Behind this Recipe

I really love kiwis, so I wanted to incorporate them into a no-bake cheesecake...
