Quick Tropical Cheesecakes

This recipe makes 12 small desserts or 6 substantial portions, served in glasses or ramekins.

1 x 200g packet of coconut biscuits (Tennis biscuits)
80ml desiccated coconut
1 x 385g can of condensed milk
80ml lemon juice
250g smooth cream cheese, room temperature
250ml fresh cream
2 x large mango, cubed

Break the biscuits into large pieces and place in a plastic bag. Crush them lightly with a rolling pin but keep some texture/not too fine.
Add the coconut, mix through and divide amongst 12 serving glasses. Set aside.
Pour the condensed milk and lemon juice into a mixing bowl and beat together with an electric whisk until incorporated.
Add the cream cheese and mix again on high speed until the mixture is completely smooth. Set aside.
Pour the cream into a mixing bowl and beat until it forms medium-stiff peaks.
Add the cream to the condensed milk mixture and fold through until it is thoroughly blended.
Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the glasses and gently tap the glass so that the mixture settles into the crumb.
Refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
Peel the mango and cut into cubes.
Spoon the fruit on top of each cheesecake, sprinkle some coconut shavings on top and serve.
