For the graham cracker crust:

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 8 ounce tub whipped cream, thawed

For the mango jello topping:

  • 2 cups chopped fresh mango
  • 1 3 ounce package mango jello mix
  • 1 ½ cups water


Make the crust:

  • In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Stir until well combined.
  • Press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom and slightly up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  • Chill the crust in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling and jello.

Make the cheesecake filling:

  • In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the sugar and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • Gently fold in the whipped cream until completely incorporated.
  • Spread the cheesecake filling evenly over the chilled graham cracker crust.
  • Return the cheesecake to the refrigerator while you prepare the jello topping.

Make the jello topping:

  • In a food processor, puree the fresh mango until smooth.
  • In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the mango jello mix to the hot water and whisk for 2 minutes, or until completely dissolved.
  • Stir the mango puree and the remaining 1/2 cup of cold water into the jello mixture.
  • Let the jello mixture cool to room temperature. Then, carefully pour the jello over the cheesecake layer.
  • Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, before slicing and serving.


  1. Use ripe mangoes for the best flavor.
  2. You can use canned diced mangoes in place of fresh mangoes. Drain the canned mangoes before pureeing.
  3. For a thicker crust, use 1 3/4 cups of graham cracker crumbs.
