The sun is shining, the birds chirp-chirping… top it off with a creamy avocado cheesecake to enjoy outside and holy bliss, life is awesome!

It’s been a month full of BIG decisions for me, tumultuous change, and incredible growth. I feel like a little caterpillar karate-kicking out of my cocoon… and shyly peeking out at the world for the first time. A little scared, a lot excited. Oh, the places we will go!

But how lovely it is to settle still for awhile and simply enjoy: the tickling winds, a rich avocado, the giggling kiddies in my yoga class.  Life is simple. Life is easy. Life is good.

Wishing you lifetimes of happiness! <3

INGREDIENTS: 

Crust:

  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Filling:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • love 😉

DIRECTIONS: 

Coat little cake pan in shredded coconut (to help with sticking).

Chop pecans in food processor, add in shredded coconut, then dates. Pat 1/2 mixture on bottom of cake pan, saving the rest for the top.

Mix cashews and pine nuts in food processor. Slowly add in dates, avocado, bananas + love. When creamy, pour on top of crust.

Put one more layer of crust on top to seal the cake. Freeze overnight. To serve, let thaw slightly, slice and decorate with fresh fruit and coconut!

Bless with happy thoughts and enjoy! 😀

    Great idea! Appears so simple, can’t wait to try it. Can I use a blender if I don’t have a food processor?

      Totally! If you have a high-powered blender or Vitamix it should be fine. You might have to chop things up first though if it isn’t as smooth to start!

      Enjoy!! 😀
