Home-made No Bake Mango Cheesecake

Home-made No Bake Mango Cheesecake
My home-made no bake mango cheesecake. :-)

I have been craving for a yummy cheesecake since my first failed attempt at making one during my son's 3rd birthday (Yes, I made an Oreo Cheesecake for him but for reasons I don't know, I totally forgot to include the sugar, so just imagine how it tastes like, haha!). Anyway, a few days before Christmas day, I decided I should try making one again. This time, I prepared a mango cheesecake. Well, I didn't forget the sweetener (condensed milk) this time but I failed again at one thing, which was, well, very minor naman. The result was way much better than my Oreo version, hihi!

Anyway, here goes. I was searching for an easy no bake version of a cheesecake when I stumbled upon a recipe from Yummy.ph. I just did some tweaks here and there to satisfy my and my family's taste buds.

Here's the ingredients that I used.


‘Tis The Season For The SM Pamaskong Handog Para sa Global Pinoy

How did your Christmas go? Ours was simple but absolutely memorable. I can't wait to tell you about it. I am sure glad that we're all together during this special season. 

I bet it would be difficult if you or one of your loved ones is away from you during this time. That's why I salute all our OFWs for all their hardwork and sacrifices. It must really be very hard working away from their families. Surely one of their absolute happiness is to be able to spend time with their loved ones especially during this season. 

That's why for this year's holidays, let us not forget the sacrifices of our OFWs that have been working hard in another country and missing Christmas here in the Philippines. Here's a video from SM Global Pinoy that will truly touch your heart.

An OFW mother was given the best Christmas she has ever had.

Be sure to get your tissues ready. :-)

From the press release:

Coming home has never been this sweet as SM Global Pinoy honored an OFW who came home to spend Christmas together with her loved ones. This tribute video is SM Supermalls’ way of saying ‘thank you’ to OFWs for their hard work and support, not only for their families, but also to the SM Global Pinoy Program.

Our First Christmas Tree

Finally, last December 1, we were able to put up our very own Christmas tree. Yes, this time, a real one. Not real real, but, yeah, you know what I mean. Remember our tree last year? :-) 

We moved in here at our home sweet home December of last year and moving in was a lot of work (and required a lot of expenses, too! hihi!) so we were not able to buy and put up our Christmas tree then. Now, we're still in that state here at our home where we still need a lot of work to be done but we decided that it's time for us to put up our tree. So, off we went to the mall and bought an affordable but pleasant looking tree. 


Promil Pre-School is Formulated with Nutrissentials to Unleash the Natural Potential of Every Child

Every parent wants the best for their children – from providing the highest quality of education, all the way down to basic resources that he or she may need. Parents are always on the look out for everything and anything to equip their children to reach their full potential, and proper nutrition is no exception. 

Recent studies show that 2 cups of milk is optimal for most preschoolers1. It is one of the best sources of Vitamin D and Calcium1 because it is composed of 3 basic foundation nutrients – Carbohydrates, Proteins, and Fats2. While these macronutrients are present in every glass of milk, the quality of the milk is not always the same. 

A good balance of high quality foundation nutrients are needed to unleash the natural potential of every child. The best way to decode the nutrition puzzle is to understand these basic nutrients.

Carbohydrates are energy-providing nutrients. They can also be separated into groups based on the Glycemic Index, which measures how high and how quickly blood glucose levels change after eating carbohydrates. For a healthy diet, it is best to focus on high-quality carbohydrates or foods with low Glycemic Index, including dairy products like milk3

Proteins are the building blocks of cells. They make up the framework upon which all cells are built. High-quality or complete proteins contain all the indispensable amino acids in the appropriate amounts needed by humans4. An excellent source of high-quality proteins is milk, whose major proteins are whey and casein, which are both excellent sources of all essential amino acids5

Contrary to popular belief, not all fats are bad for the body. Fats play an important role, helping the body maintain its core temperature, absorb nutrients, and provide an alternate source of energy when carbohydrates are not available6. Fats can be classified into saturated fats and unsaturated fats. The healthier dietary fats are mostly unsaturated, which are further classified into Monosaturated fats, Polyunsaturated fats, and Omega-3 fatty acids7

Promil Pre-School, trusted by generations, is formulated with Nutrissentials – high quality foundation nutrients such as unsaturated fats from plant-based oil, carbohydrates with lactose, and whey protein, which are sourced from the best of nature and strengthened by science.

Bear Brand Milk Drink Reinforces TIBAY through “Ang Alamat ng Matibay” Children’s Book

The tradition of storytelling with children is not limited to entertainment but has also been shown to be an important component of literacy skill development.  Research consistently supports the positive impact when a parent and teacher use storytelling to increase childhood literacy skills. Children who are part of storytelling activities are more prepared for reading and writing; general language skill increases; their vocabulary and word comprehension is enhanced; they are likely to improve knowledge in both broad and specific topics; and their creativity, imagination and memory are expanded.

That is why Nestle Bear Brand launched the ALAMAT NG MATIBAY BOOK in partnership with DepEd, The Storytelling Project, Klasrum ng Pag-asa, and National Bookstore.

As part of its continuing efforts to help nourish generations of Filipino families to good health, BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink has added a new dimension to its TIBAY campaign with the launch of its first children’s book entitled Ang Alamat ng Matibay, which highlights the importance of tibay ng kalooban.
