Cocoa Vanilla Cheesecake (No Bake)

I am yet to make a baked cheesecake, but for the quantities I make and need at home, it seems far too laborious. The last time I made and posted no bake cheesecake I used regular cream cheese, although unsalted, it left a slightly unpleasant taste after gulping down. It could be because of the preservatives in the cheese or for the fact that it did not blend well with icing sugar.
This time around, I decided to use home made mascarpone mixed in with a bit of sour curd to get the right taste.
I made it that way this time and I quite liked the outcome. You can try this, out and let me know...
Revisiting my old  post with a new recipe for BM theme...

1 cup mascarpone
1 tspn sour curd (hung curd)

1 cup  whipped cream
1 cup icing sugar
1 tspn vanilla essence
1 packet of McVities Digestive Biscuits
50 gms butter
1 tspn Cocoa powder
1) Crush the biscuits with the butter in a food processor to form a mixture.
2) In your serving bowl, first set the base of the biscuits mixture. Slightly press using the back of the spoon. Keep it in refrigerator for few minutes to set in

3) In a bowl, beat the masacarpone with 1 tspn of sour curd. Your cream cheese is ready
4) In another large bowl, whip the cream and icing sugar to form stiff peaks.
5) Add the cream cheese and fold it in. Add the vanilla essence and mix again.
6) Pour this mixture on the biscuit base and let it refrigerate for an hour.
7) Sprinkle the cocoa powder on top.
