  • 3/4tsp Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Stevia Dropsto taste
  • 2tsp vanilla extractI used alcohol free
  • Pinch of pure stevia extract powderoptional, about 1/32 tsp

Vibrant Green Frosting:

  • 1tsp vanilla extractI used alcohol free
  • 1/4tsp Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Stevia Drops
  • 1 1/2tsp lime juice

Instructions
To make the crust:
  1. Add coconut flour to a medium bowl.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine melted coconut oil and water.
  3. Pour wet mixture over flour and stir well to combine. Add a splash or two of water if it’s too dry.
  4. Press into a parchment lined springform (cheesecake pan) I used a small (7″) pan. If your pan is larger, the cheesecake will be shorter/flatter.
To make the filling:
  1. Soak cashews in a bowl of fresh water for a minimum of 6 hours (I soak overnight). Drain, rinse and place in a food processor and blend until completely broken down.b
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend well. (Optional, but pretty: reserve a pinch of zest to pulse in at the end if you want some lovely green flecks throughout).
  3. Taste and adjust for sweetness and tang, adding tiny amounts of extra stevia, or extra zest for more lime flavor.
  4. Pour cream over crust and set in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours to solidify.
To make the avocado frosting:
  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and silky. Taste and adjust.
  2. Spread on top of cheesecake, garnish with fruit, extra zest (or whatever you want!) and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm.
Recipe Notes

I recommend Sweet Leaf brand stevia drops! Tastes great! I also use Bulk Supplements Stevia Extract powder. No fillers!!

Keep refrigerated. It’s super delish to pop your slice in the freezer for about 20 minutes before eating it. That’s my FAVORITE way to eat it!

This can also be frozen, but the avocado may brown. Not so pretty, but it still tastes good once it’s thawed. But the thawing process can take a long time.

If you make this recipe, I’d love to hear what you think! Tag me on Insta @emily.likes.food¬†and hashtag #prettypies so I can see your delicious creations =D Enjoy!!
