Servings: 16
Time: 3 Hours


Vanilla Wafer Crust     

  • 3 cups Vanilla Wafers
  • 1/3 cup Unsalted Butter, melted

Mango Puree

  • 1 1/2 cups Buddy Fruits® Organic Mango Fruit Spread
  • 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

Cheesecake Filling

  • 1/2 cup Buddy Fruits® Organic Mango Fruit Spread
  • 16 oz Cream Cheese, softened at room-temperature     
  • 1/2 cup Sugar     
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt    
  • 1 Tablespoon All-Purpose Flour    
  • 2 Large Eggs, room-temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract    


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. 
  2. In a small sauce pot whisk together the Buddy Fruits® Organic Mango Fruit Spread, cornstarch and sugar. Heat on medium and cook, whisking often until thickened and the sugar has completely dissolved. About 10 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  3. Use a food processer to crush the vanilla wafers in order to make fine crumbs then add the melted butter, mix again until sand-like texture. Transfer into a parchment lined 8×8” cake pan and press into one even layer.
  4. Bake the crust for 8 - 10 minutes then remove from the oven and allow to cool. Keep the oven on.
  5. Add softened cream cheese to a mixing bowl then mix using on low speed a hand-held electric mixer or standing mixer until smooth and creamy. 
  6. Add the Buddy Fruits® Organic Mango Fruit Spread, sugar, salt, and all-purpose flour. Mix until combined.
  7. Next, add the eggs one at a time and mix until fully incorporated. Lastly, add the vanilla extract and mix once more.
  8. Pour the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust and spread out evenly.
  9. Dollop the thickened and cooled mango puree on top of the filling and use a chopstick or knife to swirl the puree into the filling to create the marble effect making sure to not go all the way to the bottom to not disturb the crust.
  10. Bake at 325°F for 30 - 35 minutes or until the center of the cheesecakes set then turn off the oven, keep the oven door ajar and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  11. Next, remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for another 30 minutes to an hour or until completely cooled. 
  12. Once cooled, slice and serve.
