Taste of the Week Glenilen Mango and Passionfruit Cheesecake

Taste of the Week

Glenilen Mango and Passionfruit Cheesecake

I've been enjoying the delicious products from Glenilen Farm in West Cork for quite a while now. Indeed, I had this cheesecake as Taste of the Week back in 2016 (though the Kingstons, Alan and Valerie, have been producing since long before that!).

Time to give it another airing as Taste of the Week. They add mango fruit and passion fruit pulp and its seeds for the ultimate tropical flavour! It is made on their farm in Drimoleague using fresh cream, Glenilen Farm's cream cheese and yoghurt. Not only is it delicious, it is also convenient! Forgot to get something for dessert? Well, this is your gorgeous creamy solution, well-priced too by the way and widely available.


The subtle flavour of the mango and the more intense passionfruit work so well together in the creamy topping. They had been using the fruits in their popular yogurts and just thought it would be a great idea to combine them in a cheesecake. They were spot on and “it's proved very popular”.

Using a few simple ingredients to bring simple, everyday goodness to those who value good food, thoughtfully prepared, has been their motto and mentality since the start and it has served them well.

Simple and good no doubt but also very convenient for the consumer. Take that pack for instance. It has a brilliant (simple) Push-up base for a clean first slice. No messing with the Kingstons. With it, you won't waste a crump of the 600 grammes. By the way, you are expected to share! Enjoy.
