Trying my trusted cheesecake recipe with Avocadoes and Pistachios, it was good! Avocado Pistachio Cheesecake is a type of no-bake cheesecake where crust is prepared with graham crackers topped with an avocado infused cream cheese and topped with generous amounts of pistachio
Making this cheesecake was adhoc, was planning to make some fruity ones but the supermarket that I usually go to was not cooperative, the fruits that I was intending to use was out of stock so I had to do last minute changes and used avocadoes instead. It was a perfect timing becuase usually avocadoes in New Zealand is quite pricey, at its worse the average price is at NZ$5.00 and the highest price on record can go more than NZ$10.00. There is quite a demand out here, Kiwi’s love avocadoes on everything, damn you smashed avocado sandwich why did you become so trendy, but several weeks ago the prices were really good where you can get 3 for $1.00 for a good quality Haas Avocadoes, I took advantage of that situation and brought a lot of unripe ones and some of them went into this wonderful recipe that I was not expecting to be a hit. Honestly it was one of the best cheesecake recipes I made and my neighbours who we shared this with can attest.
I based it on my trusted recipe but instead of using 750 grams of cream cheese, I used 500 grams and replace then 250 grams of cream cheese with avocadoes instead. And to make it pretty since I don’t have other green options at hand for my topping, I used crushed pistachios to finish it off. The result was a not too sweet cheesecake with nice hints of nutty avocado plus an added crunchy texture from the pistachios. I encourage you to try this, and tell me how did it go.
