40g sugar
160g strawberry yoghurt
30ml lemon juice

30gm plain marshmallows (abour 4-5 big ones)
8gm gelatin powder
50ml water
3-4 strawberries, diced and absorbed extra moisture on a paper napkin
3 big marshmallow, cut into dice (use kitchen scissors dipped in cornflour to cut)

1) Doubleboil or microwave creamcheese and marshmallow till softened. Mix in the sugar and stir till dissolved
2) Bloom gelatin powder in the water and microwave or doubleboil till gelatine is dissolved. (Do not overheat as heat kills the gelling action)

4) Add yoghurt & lemon juice into the creamcheese and blend into whipped cream.
5) Add in the gelatin mixture and stir well.
6) Lastly stir in the diced strawberries and marshmallows.

400ml cranberry juice
11g gelatin
1-2 tbsp sugar*

1) Microwave or doubleboil till gelatin and sugar are dissolved. Cool slightly.
2) Slice strawberries and lay them on paper napkins to absorb any excess moisture.
3) Lay the strawberries over the set cheesecake and gently spoon just enough jelly over the strawberries.
4) Chill the cheesecake for about 30 minutes to set the layer of jelly.
5) Spoon remaining jelly over the cake and let set completely before serving.

*Depending on how sweet or sour the cranberry juice is, you can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.
