Paleo Avocado Key Lime Mini Cheesecakes 

This week I froze 36 Miniature Avocado Key Lime Paleo Cheesecakes, basing my concoction on a recipe created by the genius, Gina from Running to the Kitchen.

Time Management:

  • prep time: 1 hour and a half
  • freeze time: 1 hour

Appliance/ Utensils Required:

  • 3 mini muffin trays
  • 1 food processor
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • 1 spoon to transfer mixture from processor to tray


  • For the crust
    • 12 pitted medjool dates
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
    • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
    • zest of 1 lime
    • pinch sea salt
  • For the filling
    • flesh from 2 avocados
    • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
    • zest of 1 lime
    • 1/4 cup 100% natural maple syrup

Instructions: Making the Crust

  • Combine all the ingredients for the crust (dates, macadamia nuts, coconut flour, oil, pinch of salt, and lime zest) into a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together.
  • Using a table spoon, dish a 1 cm cubed piece from the food processor and press the mixture into the base of each mini muffin tray.
  • Place the base into the freezer to set while you start to make the filling.

Instructions: Making the Filling

  • Combine the avocado, lime juice, lime zest and 100% maple syrup into the food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
  • Remove crust filled mini muffin tray from freezer and spoon the filling evenly into each compartment.
  • Return trays to freezer for at least 1 hour to set.

And presto! 36 mini paleo avocado key lime cheesecakes frozen and ready for serving. In terms of taste, these babies are incredible.

One bite unleashes a sort of mayhem in your mouth. Not only are these little cheesecakes sweet, nutty and creamy, but they are perfectly balanced with a refreshing tart sensation that is addicting!

I would love to know if any of you guys have tried these citrus-y delights before. Or if you guys had any ideas for what I should make for my next Wholesome Wednesday post, please leave a comment down below !

Love Linda, xo
