Avocado Vanilla Cheesecake


One of Bennett’s favorite desserts is cheesecake. When I discovered I could make a light dessert with avocado’s that tasted like “cheesecake” I was excited to give it a shot. This is a very easy dessert to make when having company or going to a party. It’s not only gluten free but dairy free and requires no baking!
