Red Dragonfruit Cheesecake

After the tip off by da beautiful Mei Yen about swirling red dragonfruit into her cheesecake, I decided to do the same after buying some locally planted species. According to the owner of the farm, they are sweeter compared to Vietnamese dragonfruit as the local ones are pluck after the fruit is ripen on the tree.

Whilst I was slicing the fruit, I stole some bites and my oh my, it was really sweet but I was still skeptical about the taste after mixing into the cheese. Anyway, I went ahead and made one based on the Peachy Cheesecake recipe. I tasted the cheese mixture after mixing in the dragonfruit puree which seems all right.

Sad to say after chilling it, I did not get to taste it. Instead I presented it to my brother for his birthday. Since he wasn't around, we did not managed to sing him a song and have him cut the cake. Hubby and I left thereafter. However, he told me it was good. The deep purple colour is so rich and lovely... very captivating. Looks like I'll have to make another one... SOON!

Here's a shot I managed to stole before sending it off...

meiyen, i mix the puree throughly into the cheese mixture instead of swirling it but i thot yours would looked nicer with the marbling effect. no?
