No-Bake Ube Cheesecake

(Not rated yet )
A classic Filipino treat, this no-bake purple yam cheesecake is the stuff dessert dreams are made of. Luscious ube cheesecake filling (think a sweet, nutty, vanilla-like flavor) sits atop a base of crunchy pistachios and graham cracker crust – the perfect way to end any meal.

Instructions

  • Place water in small microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle gelatin mixture over water; set aside.

  • Pierce potatoes with a fork and place on microwave-safe plate. Microwave on HIGH 6 minutes until tender. Let stand 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Remove skin and cut into chunks. Allow to cool completely, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix graham cracker crumbs, pistachios, coconut and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a large bowl. Stir in melted butter until well mixed. Press mixture firmly into bottom of parchment lined 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

  • Microwave gelatin mixture on HIGH for 30 seconds. Stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.

  • Place cooled sweet potatoes and coconut milk in food processor; cover. Pulse until smooth. Add cream cheese, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla and gelatin mixture; puree until well-mixed and completely smooth, scraping down sides as necessary

  • Pour mixture evenly over prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set. Run small knife around sides of pan to loosen crust; remove sides of pan. Cut into slices to serve. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

  • Test Kitchen Tip: Ube, a bright purple sweet potato or yam, is a staple ingredient in Filipino cuisine. Ube are often used in sweet dishes and desserts and have a smooth texture and flavor similar to a typical sweet potato, but slightly sweeter with a bit of a nutty, vanilla taste.
