Mint Cheesecake Filling
Pour the boiling water into a large jug and whisk in the gelatine powder. Whisk until all dissolved.
Add the remaining cold water.
Add the cream cheese, peppermint essence, coloruing (optional) and sweetener.
Using a stick blender with the blade attachment, blend on a slow speed until smooth and lump free.
Pour onto the prepared base.
Refrigerate until set.
Drizzle with dark or sugar-free chocolate (optional).
Please taste the cheesecake filling before pouring into the dish. You will need to adjust the amount of sweetener and peppermint essence according to YOUR tastes and liking for a strong or mild mint flavour.If you don't want to go to the effort of using gelatin and sweetener, you may wish to swap these out for mint sugar-free jello/jelly that would make 500ml/2cups of jelly/jello.
