Apricot and Mango Cheesecake Bars


Apricot and mango cheesecake bars on two plates.

A super easy combo! A cheesecake like layer as a base, made with fresh cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, makes a perfect and light texture that pairs beautifully with the fruit. In this cake, we use canned apricot halves which are great because you don't have to wait for fresh apricots to appear in the supermarket to make this cake. We also top the cake with fresh mango pieces and add a sprinkle of mango and a little bit of orange juice to make the cake super aromatic and deliciously fruity!
