For the crust
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 9 graham crackers)
5 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1/3 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
For the filling
3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/3 cup whole milk yogurt
1 cup pureed fresh or frozen mango
How to Make It
Make the crust: In a bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar and salt until combined.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
In a 9-inch cake pan with a removeable bottom, press the cracker mixture onto the bottom and half way up the sides. Bake the crust until it is set and a few shades darker, about 10 minutes, then let cool.
Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.
Make the filling: Using a stand mixer, combine the cream cheese and sugar on low speed. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, then beat in the yogurt.
Pour 2/3 of the cream cheese mixture into the crust, then pour 1/2 the mango puree and marble with the tip of a butter knife.
Pour the remaining cream cheese mixture onto the crust then pour the remaining 1/2 of the mango mixture into the center and marble with the butter knife.
Bake the cheesecake until it is set around the edges and still slightly wobbly in the center, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
Let the cheesecake cool to room temperature, then chill before slicing and serving.
