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…)
