Mango Ricotta Cheesecake Mousse – Golden Door Australia

A stay at Golden Door in Australia gives your body a rest from red meat, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and saturated fat. We find our guests are less likely to go back to their usual excessive levels once they have had the opportunity to have a break from these foods and then reintroduce them sensibly and in moderation.  One of our guests’ favorite dessert recipes is this refreshing Mango Ricotta Cheesecake Mousse.  A nice dessert with a tangy cheesecake flavor.  Wonderful on warm days when served chilled.
