How to Make Avocado Lime Cheesecake

  2. Add the soaked almonds and pecans to your food processor. Add the dates, 1/4 cup of coconut oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Process until the mix is crumbly and sticks together.
  3. Add the dough to a 9-inch/22 cm tart pan, and press it to form a crust. Refrigerate the crust for 15 minutes.
  4. Peel and chop the avocados. Add them to your food processor. Also, add the lime juice, lime zest, the remaining coconut oil, raw honey, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt. Process until smooth.
  5. Pour the filling into the chilled crust, smooth it evenly, and put it back into the refrigerator for about 60 minutes.
  6. If you want, decorate with freshly grated lemon zest and some small lemon pieces.
