Sam’s Pro Tips for this Mango Cheesecake Instant Pot Recipe
The Best Instant Pot and Pan
If you’ve seen The Top Kitchen Essentials You Need to Make Your Life Easier, there is one Instant Pot we absolutely love!
The Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 Quart is reliable, the pressure builds quick, the lid locks easily and securely, PLUS the quick recipe buttons makes it super simple to follow. This is the same one my grandma has, and it definitely has gotten its use of family recipes!
By putting the pan on top of the trivet, assembling a water bath has never been so easy!
Riper the Mangoes the Better
We use 3 fresh mangoes for this 7-inch easy mango cheesecake recipe. The riper the better!
The best way to cut the mango is to cut the mango in cubes while inside the peel. Place the mango vertical and cut downward avoiding the hard part or the bone of the mango.
You can usually cut about 4 large strips of the mango, and then cut cubes in the peel! Use a spoon or knife to get the cubes out!

Freeze the Crust
Ok, so I know this sounds weird, but the crust needs to freeze for about 20 minutes to firm before placing in the Instant Pot.
Think of this as blind baking if we were making our mango pulp cheesecake in the oven. By freezing the crust first, we’re preventing a soggy crust in the Instant Pot for the perfect crumble texture in the end!
Trust me, it’s worth it!
Very Important! In order to achieve that rich and creamy texture, you don’t want to overmix the ingredients!
Like our Easy Rosette Ube Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream That is So Moist, you want to stir delicately until just combined. Overmixing will result in a lumpy, hardened cheesecake!
The best way to get everything to mix well in the STAND-MIXER, is to have the cream cheese at room temperature so that it is completely softened.
By having the cream cheese sit on the counter for 1-2 hours beforehand, will help your chances of that silky texture!
Mango Cheesecake Instant Pot Topping
To get that beautiful, wavy design on this easy mango cheesecake recipe, we used the remaining mango puree for that tropical look! Super cute!
Blob the top of the mango cheesecake with the remaining puree and pull the design with a toothpick. You can cross the puree vertically or horizontally, there is no wrong answer!
Just be sure to not overly pull the design as then it will start to blend with the cheesecake batter. You can decorate the top of the cheesecake with mint leaves, mango cubes, or even strawberries!
With the topping and design on our instant pot mango cheesecake, don’t worry about getting that smooth cheesecake top as the top will be decorated!
Key Ingredients – Mango Cheesecake Instant Pot Recipe
Below are some key and optional ingredients for this recipe:
Mango Cheesecake Filling
- Mangoes: Make sure to use ripe mangoes! If you squeeze and it feels soft to the touch, it’s ready! The sweeter the mangoes, the better.
- Cream cheese: We are talking the full fat cream cheese block! I have never tried using the Light version as I want this as rich as possible!
- Sugar: The sugar will mix with the cream cheese for that signature cream cheese goodness! This needs to be mixed well before adding the other ingredients.
- Vanilla: All you need is a hint of vanilla for added flavor! I’m totally thinking of a cup of coffee with this right now!
- Eggs: 2 large eggs are used in our no bake mango cheesecake without gelatin! Totally adds to the rich texture.
- Lemon zest: To balance the sweetness of our instant pot mango cheesecake, we zest a whole lemon to combine with the cheesecake.
- Flour: Only two teaspoons needed to get that right texture without being too firm. So good!
- Graham crackers: We love a good crust on a cheesecake, isn’t that like the best part?! So, we use about 10 crackers, or a little more than 1 cup of crushed graham crackers for that rich crust in every bite in our easy mango cheesecake.
- Unsalted butter: For that sand-like gritty texture when assembling the crust, use 6 tablespoons of melted butter when combining with the graham crackers.
- Brown sugar: For a deepened richness of the graham crackers, we add a tablespoon of brown sugar when assembling the crust. Super popular in our Creamy Filipino Leche Flan for Your Next Party!

More Variations to this Mango Cheesecake Instant Pot Recipe
There are a few ways you can variate this mango cheesecake instant pot recipe. Here’s how:
