What do you do with that perfectly ripe avocado currently sitting in your fridge? KEY LIME CHEESECAKES! This recipe is perfectly creamy, sweet and delicious, and the end result is so pretty to look at too. The perfect dessert for late spring/early summer. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

Crust
  • 3/4 cup dates, pitted or raisins
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almonds or brazil nuts
Filling
  • 1 large avocado, ripe
  • 1 cup almond or 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, soaked 3 hours
  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar + stevia drops to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Juice and zest from 2 limes

Instructions

  1. Blend crust ingredients until crumble consistency and press down in muffin tray, I used a tiny bit of coconut oil in the bottom to make sure it would stick, fill 1/4 each hole and leave in freezer while making the filling.
  2. Blend all the cheesecake ingredients on a high-speed blender, add a little more almond milk if needed until really creamy and smooth. If you need more sweetness you can add a few stevia drops to taste.
  3. Spread the mixture on each crust and freeze for at least 7 hours.
  4. Remove from freezer and splash a bit of hot water on the back of the muffin tray to make it easier to remove the cheesecakes.
  5. Top with lime slices, coconut, cashews or any other favorite topping you have. Let it defrost before serving, you can leave them in the fridge for a couple of days or freezer for up to 3 weeks
About Priscilla Soler

My name is Priscilla and I'm half Mexican and half Canadian. I live in Montreal where I go to college. My vegan path started  3 years ago, after suffering of an eating disorder. I believe God has healed me and my life changed completely. By changing my eating habits and appreciating not just myself but everything around me, I finally saw how beautiful, unique and special life is. After 2 years of following a raw vegan lifestyle, I read the China Study AND tHE 80/10/10 diet and started eating a low fat mostly raw diet. It's been a year and I never felt better! I have so much energy and the benefits are beyond. I created my blog a few months after I changed my diet to low fat, so pretty much all my recipes are free of oils, nuts, seeds or gourmet ingredients like agave and cacao. I think these are super healthy and tasty recipes that focus on what a real raw food diet should look like, the natural whole state of each and every food, without adding tons of refined ingredients.
