No Bake Key Lime Coconut Cheesecake

BM #67 Week 3 Day 3 - 

Check out this healthy or semi-healthy no bake cheesecake. I love the coconut and the key lime flavors just as my little one does. I debated on the ingredients of the crust and finally went with the Graham cracker-dates combination which was too good. 

The filling is not too sweet so the crust with the dates in it compensated for the limey flavor of the topping.

Recipe Idea from here
Ingredients - 
For the Crust - 
Graham Crackers 1 cup
Medjool Dates, pitted 4-5
Maple syrup 1 Tbsp
For the Topping - 

*Coconut Cream 1/2 cup
Cashews 1/4 cup
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Lime juice 1 Tbsp (approx)
Lime Zest 2 tsp

*I used a high power blender to grind coconut at home. I used half of a coconut.

No Bake Key Lime Coconut Cheesecake

Method Of Preparation -


For the crust - 
Pulse the graham crackers, pitted dates. After they are coarsely crushed, add maple syrup and pulse again so the mixture forms a stiff dough.

I used silicon mini cup cake liners to make these. Take a teaspoon of the crust mixture and press it down into the silicon cup cake liners. Keep them aside.

For the Topping -
Blend all the ingredients until the mixture is light and fluffy.

To Assemble the cheesecake cups - 
Into each of the cup cake liners in which the crust has been pressed down, put in a teaspoon of the coconut cream mixture.

Freeze them for about 90 minutes.

About 5 minutes before serving, thaw the cheesecake cups, remove from the cupcake liner and serve for a mini treat!!
