No-Bake Tiramisu Cake

No-Bake Tiramisu Cake

I am not actually a huge fan of coffee, but there is always something irresistible with tiramisu. The Italian word tiramisu can be translated in several ways to “pick me up” or “cheer me up” or “lift me up” and they all work for me. Tiramisu is a recipe […]

No-Bake Avocado Lime Cheesecake

No-Bake Avocado Lime Cheesecake

It was my friend’s birthday few weeks ago. So, I decided to be crafty by incorporating his favorite meal in the morning, which is avocado to a cake. Surprise!!! 🙂

Yes, I was inspired to make an avocado based cake to celebrate. I also by chance had extra cream cheese from my fridge. Therefore, I decided to incorporate avocados into a cheesecake. Avocado lime cheesecake seems odd at first, but trust me that it turns out to be delicious. The avocado’s flavor is unexpectedly subtle and the cheesecake does not taste heavy at all from those added healthy fat. The lime is the one that stand out the most as it adds refreshing flavor, intriguing me to keep taking a bite. I must say my favorite is the chocolate crust on the bottom. I especially make the crust less sweet, so it would balance the sweetness from the filling.

There is nothing complicated about this recipe, which is just the way I like it. Once you have tried this recipe, please kindly let me know about your experience. (more…)

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake

There is nothing that can compare to a scoop of ice cream when you are either happy or sad. It is no secret that I love making my own ice cream. Yup, that is one of the advantages of having ice cream maker at home. I simply enjoy the process of making my own custom ice cream, playing around with endless flavor possibilities.

This time, I am going to take ice cream to the next level, which is ice cream cake. With strawberries in season and cream cheese on sale, I decided to make Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake. Pretty classic and simple because this was actually my first attempt on making ice cream cake. I have to tell you this Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake is absolutely scrumptious. It tastes just like strawberry cheesecake in ice cream cake form. The ice cream is soft and creamy with a subtle cream cheese flavor and lemon. The graham cracker crust is crunchy and compliments well with the cream cheese ice cream. Most importantly, the strawberry jam plays the most important role in Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake by stimulating your tongue with the surprise tang. (more…)
