Almost everyone loves cakes – that’s a fact! Some people love sweet cakes, others – sour and refreshing cakes. But the common thing is that it’s very hard to find a person that will say “no” to a cake. This creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake is perfect for people who give preference to refreshing and delightfully sour cakes.
In my opinion, the best part of this creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake is the fact that it doesn’t need to be frozen. I have always discarded an idea to make a vegan cheesecake, because most of them require freezing. I really don’t like the thought of a cake that is frozen and then thawed to be eaten. So, I decided to create a vegan cheesecake that becomes solid in fridge. Once it’s ready, whenever you have a wish to enjoy a slice of cake, simply take it out from the fridge and indulge in the refreshing creaminess.
Nutritional value of the creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake
Probably you know that during processing many valuable nutrients, that the food products contain, are lost. Unfortunately, also by freezing the products, you lose part of vitamins and minerals. But since this creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake doesn’t require freezing, all the valuable nutrients stay in the cake. And I must admit that this vegan cheesecake is really healthy from the nutritional point of view! For example, avocados contain good amount of vitamins K, B5 and B9 as well as such minerals like copper and potassium. Lime has a very high concentration of vitamin C. It is considered that one lime can provide up to 32% of the required daily dose of vitamin C. Cashews instead are a great source of copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Besides that, they contain also a decent amount of vitamin K.
Also the crust of this creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake is rich in nutrients. Almonds contain big amount of vitamin E and decent amount of other vitamins – B1, B2, B3, B9. They are rich in manganese and contain good amount of magnesium, copper, phosphorus, calcium, iron and potassium. Also dates are a great source of different minerals and vitamins. They contain potassium, manganese, magnesium and copper and vitamins B5 and B6. Basically, this vegan cheesecake is not just another dessert out of many. It is also a delicious way how to nourish your body with vitamins and minerals!
How to prepare creamy vegan lime and avocado cheesecake
The preparation process of this vegan cheesecake is very easy. Blend together the ingredients for the crust and press the mixture in your chosen cake form. Then blend together the ingredients for the creamy mixture and pour it in the created crust. Place the cake in the fridge for at least 4 hours, but better overnight. After that enjoy it whenever you want!
The crust of this vegan cheesecake is quite sweet because of the dates, while the creamy part is a bit sour thanks to the lime juice. Together it makes a perfect equilibrium of both flavors by leaving a sweet and sour aftertaste in your mouth. If you like the mix of sweet and sour, try also my fruit filled vegan chocolate candies made with pomegranate seeds and dried apricots. My baby bunny Specky in general likes fruit that is a bit sour. But in this case lime, I guess, was too sour for his taste buds. That’s why he decided to treat himself with some juicy orange! Yes, yes… I know – he is a spoiled little boy!
Even though the making of a vegan cheesecake might seem difficult, it actually is not! Make sure of it on your own by making this lime and avocado cheesecake that is:
- easy to make
- not frozen
- silky smooth
