Chocolate and Kiwi Fruit Cheesecake with Thermomix

Have you ever tried a chocolate and kiwi fruit cheesecake? I can assure you this is a very fresh recipe in summer but that can be adapted for every season, because you can find kiwi fruit in anytime.

In addition to the kiwi fruit, the whipping cream and the soft cheese, there is also chocolate in this recipe, that enriches the cheesecake base and its topping.

As its name says, the cheesecake is a typical American dish that has been recently brought to our cuisine successfully in both its versions, baked and not baked. The first version is perfect for breakfast and tea time while the second one is a very fresh dessert to offer especially in summer.

The advantage of this dessert is that it doesn't need to be cooked in the oven. So you may prepare it whether when it's too hot you don't want to turn on the oven or in those situations you don't have an oven at your disposal, such as in a summer holidays house etc. but where I hope you would have brought your inseparable Thermomix! ;-)

The recipe has been created by Marianna Napoli from Cammarata.

Marianna's Advice

To better serve the cake, you might cover your spring-form pan with a disc of greaseproof paper.

Keep your cake refrigerated for a whole night...the result will be even better!
