Choc-banana cheesecake

Recipe: Choc-banana cheesecake


  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 15 Paradise Vive Lites Triple Choc Cookies
  • 650g low-fat fresh ricotta
  • 150g (1 cup) icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana


  1. Release the base from a 20cm (base measurement) springform pan and invert. Brush the base with melted butter to grease. Line with non-stick baking paper. Secure the base back into the pan, allowing the paper to overhang. Brush the side of the pan with melted butter. Line with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Use a serrated knife to cut 12 biscuits into 4 pieces each. Arrange the biscuit pieces, base-side down, in a single layer, to cover the base of the prepared pan. Reserve any leftover biscuit pieces and crumbs.
  3. Use an electric beater to beat the ricotta, icing sugar and vanilla essence in a large bowl until smooth. Add the banana and beat until well combined.
  4. Spoon banana mixture over the biscuit base. Smooth the surface. Cover. Place in the fridge overnight to set and chill.
  5. Transfer the cake to a serving plate. Coarsely crumble the remaining biscuits and biscuit pieces. Sprinkle over the top of the cheesecake to serve.
  6. Notes You’ll need about 2 small ripe bananas for this recipe.
