Cheesecake filling:
3 large firm but ripe avocados
1/2 cup agave

Directions:

  1. Blend all crust ingredients together in food processor. Pat into 8" spring form pan. Set aside. :)
  2. Scrap out avocado meat and blend together into food processor with reach of cheesecake filling ingredients until smooth and creamy. About 2 minutes. Pour cheesecake filling over pie crust.

There you have it! The lickin's from the bowl are pretty good but once you stick it in the freeze overnight and then slice through that silky, creamy goodness and dig your fork in there will be no going back! :p

Ok, so have you ever made a "raw" cheesecake?

What's your favorite "real" cheesecake flavor? 

Anyone else a pan of the Cheesecake Factory restaurant? :)

OMG. I must try this!!! Never made a cheesecake before, period. Aside from Tiramisu, since it's half cheese. Thanks for sharing!
