Mountain Dew Cheesecake

Dew or Dew not; there is no try.


  • Crust
  • 300g graham crackers, crushed
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Cheesecake
  • 300g cream cheese
  • 1/2 drop green food gel
  • 1 drops yellow food gel
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Mountain Dew Glaze
  • 1 cup mountain dew soda
  • 1 tbsp powdered gelatine


  1. Crust
  2. Begin by adding your graham crackers into a food processor. Blitz until finely crumbed. Add the melted butter and pulse to help coat the crumbs in the butter.
  3. Pour out into a long tart tin and use the back of a tablespoon or the bottom of a glass to help spread and firmly press the wet crumb mixture into the sides and bottom of the tart tin. Chill for 20 min.
  4. Cheesecake
  5. Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix on low speed to begin with, slowly making your way up to high speed. Pour into the chilled tart tin and chill for 2 hours to set.
  6. Mountain Dew Glaze
  7. To prepare the mountain dew glaze, add the powdered gelatine to a small mixing bowl and about 4 tbsp of the mountain dew into the bowl. Mix until well combined. Allow to set for 5 min then microwave for 1 minute to melt.
  8. Add the remaining mountain dew into a large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 min or until very hot. This will help get rid of the fizz in the drink so that we end up with a nice smooth glaze.
  9. Add the melted gelatine mixture into the hot mountain dew and use a whisk to combine until everything is melted. Allow the mixture to cool but not set. About 10 minutes.
  10. Pour the cooled mountain dew glaze into the chilled cheesecake. Allow to set in the fridge for 30 minutes before slicing up to serve.
