Raw Avocado Key Lime Pie Cheesecake
Hello & Happy Friday!!
I’m happy to say, that I’m an avocado kick. I probably have avocados just about every day, but in addition to them being a good breakfast and snack, they are amazing to throw into various dishes, especially desserts!
When vegan cheesecakes came onto the scene they always were packed with cashews. While I love cashews I became less and less of a fan of this concept over the years. However, with this pie you don’t even need them! From a distance this dish looks involved, but I promise…
It’s a handful of staples thrown into a food processor and is such a no fuss recipe!
What I love about this key lime pie, is everything! It packs avocado, coconut milk and even spinach! It has that perf lime flavor, the crust is raw, requires not backing, crust holds together, comprised of macadamia nuts, has aesthetic appeal, nutrient packed, perf for any season, and non vegan approved!
If you’re searching for that effortless staple vegan dessert that will forever wow your guests, this is it! You have to try my vegan Raw Avocado Key Lime Pie!
Why this recipe rocks:
Perf for any season!
