NO BAKE LIME & AVOCADO CHEESECAKE

By Chef Lucky Dhillon, 10 Apr, 2018 04:16 PM
    Yield: 12 servings
     

    Ingredients

     

    For the crust:

    1 cup raw almonds
    1 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded
    1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
    80 ml real maple syrup
    1 lime, juiced
     

    For the vegan cheesecake filling:

    7 oz coconut cream
    1 cup lightly roasted macadamia nuts
    110 ml real maple syrup
    3 ripe avocados
    4 limes, juiced
    2 limes, juiced
     


    Preparation

     

    For the crust:

    In a food processor add the crust ingredients, and pulse until all the ingredients come together. If the juice of one lime isn’t enough, add more juice until the ingredients begin to form a crust, and set aside.
     

    For the cheesecake filling:

    Place the macadamia nuts, almonds, maple syrup, avocados, lime juice and zest in the food processor, and pulse until you obtain a silky smooth texture. This will take at least four to five minutes.
     
    Add the coconut cream and pulse for another one to two minutes, until incorporated. Pour the cheesecake mixture in a piping bag, and cool it for at least four to five hours before serving. 
     
    Take the cheesecake filling out of the fridge, and assemble the cheesecake and crust mix to your desired presentation.
