Piña Colada Cheesecake

Nuvita Biscuits

The Piña Colada cocktail is a popular drink that features the flavors found in this cheesecake. The combination of orange, pineapple, coconut and rum combine for a marvelous, tropical-inspired cheesecake.



1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

3 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup cream of coconut
1/4 cup light rum
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, drained, juice reserved
Reserved 1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar
1  can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1 jar (24 oz) refrigerated sliced mango, drained, chopped
Fresh mint leaves, if desired
Heat oven to 325°F. Wrap outside bottom and side of 10-inch springform pan with foil to prevent leaking. Spray inside bottom and side of pan with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix crust ingredients. Press crust mixture on bottom of pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs; one at a time; just until blended. On low speed, beat in remaining filling ingredients except pineapple. Gently fold in pineapple. Pour over crust.
Bake 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes or until edge of cheesecake is set at least 2 inches from edge of pan but center of cheesecake still jiggles slightly when moved. Run small metal spatula around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake. Turn oven off; open oven door at least 4 inches. Let cheesecake remain in oven 30 minutes. Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight before serving.
In 1-quart saucepan, mix reserved pineapple juice plus enough water to equal 2/3 cup, cornstarch, and sugar. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Cool 20 minutes at room temperature.
In large bowl, toss glaze with pineapple and mango. Spoon onto top of cheesecake. Garnish with mint leaves.

Use a food processor to quickly and easily make the graham cracker crumbs.

When making any cheesecake, be sure to have the cream cheese, eggs and other ingredients at room temperature. Also, this is not the time to select low-fat or fat-free cream cheese or sour cream, as these will not work as well nor will the low fat varieties create the best flavor and texture for the finished cake.

    I would start with stuffed french toast and orange juice at IHOP for breakfast. For a morning snack I would have an Icee and nachos from seven-eleven. For lunch I would go to Red Lobster and eat a double portion of the coconut shrimp with pina colada sauce followed by their vanilla bean cheesecake. For dinner on to a great Chinese restaurant and eat sweet and sour chicken and pork and noodles and lots of fried rice. Finally I would top the day off with a piece of my brothers homemade chocolate silk pie. All of these are foods I haven’t touched since I was diagnosed five years ago. How about you?
    I don’t touch those foods anymore because I used to eat them all the time and I also weighed 70 lbs more than I do now. Also, I can never handle rice especially fried, it just makes my blood sugar climb way too much.

    I am 5’6 and 110 pounds. And I am a guy. No matter how much I eat I don’t gain weight. I worked out in a gym for half a year and I didn’t gain that much weight. But at September of last year I was like 89 pounds and 5’1. I would like to wrestle in high 119 weight class by November. How could I gain some more weight?

    I’ve heard that you should take out three times the amount of the liquid to the amount of cornstarch you are using and mix the two together in a small bowl when the liquid is cool. Then add back into the simmering sauce or marinade. Is this a good method? Anyone have some better suggestions, ideas, or insights?

    I was at Sam’s club and I tried a delicious, premade Cheese Cake called Paradise Cheese cake, it had Coconut and Pinapple in it, I would love the recipe if anyone has any ideas, I want to learn to make it myself. The name of the Company it was made by was Atlanta Cheese Cakes, it was a very good cake and I would love to learn to make it.

    Bow ties used to be a thing of the past, but now they back. This time, they come in hundreds of unique, stylish and classy designs which only makes wearing bow ties so much more interesting. From fraternity bow ties, masonic neckties to masonic bow ties – the variety of bow ties to choose from is almost endless. The best part is that buying bow ties have become more accessible than the tedious trips to the brick and mortar bow ties shops.

    LMAO to the people who are bitter because he lives in a council house. You remind me of my ex girlfriend who would rant and rave and throw her arms (and legs) in the air complaining that her friend has bought and sold her council house and re bought something bigger and better than what she had. And most of you if not all of you have cheated with your child tax credits or working tax credits. That is a fact.
