I went through a challenge while setting and taking it out from the pan as I had no detachable pan. hence i suggest if making the cheese cake for the first time, then i would suggest you to use glasses or bowls,
so that you can just make the layers in them. The mango cheesecake served in individual bowls or glasses, looks pleasing as well as easy to serve.

Why this recipe is great for expectant Mums

Did you know many cultures and believe dates are a fantastic food to eat while pregnant.
A study from the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2011 found the following effects for date eaters too:

First stage labour was shorter
83% of those whom ate dates had their amniotic sac in place at admission (This can reduce the chance of infection).
Cervical dilatation at hospital admission was higher in mothers that ate dates.
Cesarian rate was slightly smaller in the date eating group

Please note the women in the study ate between 3 – 7 dates daily.

It is always essential to remember that anything you consume should be held in moderation. The same applies to dates, and you should only have a handful a day, not more.
