Food: Key Lime Cheesecake

So i was in a very experimental mood today! This is my first (and not final attempt) to make a dairy free cheesecake - seems crazy right? Well it can be done with a bit of patience and a great deal of optimism! I can't say that I got it right the first time but I know when I make it again I will be able to tweak it a little bit.

Ingredients:  

Base  

Shredded coconut 1/2 cup 

Dates x 4  - I found some dates covered in coconut and these worked well! 

flax seeds ground into meal 3/4 cup 

1 tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil spread  

Mix together in a food processor and press down on the base of your cake pan

 Filling  

Avocado x 4  

Coconut oil -1 tablespoon 

Sweetener - honey , agave or rice malt syrup 1/2 cup  

1/2 cup lime juice  

Zest of 1 lime  

 Mix in a blender / food processor until silky smooth 

pour over base and place in freezer for minimum 3 hours  

Serve chilled and consume cold. 

Verdict: Well Its not really cheese cake but it is an amazing treat in it's own right  The fact that it is also thrown together in under 30 minutes without an oven makes this one a keeper.
