This recipe is a blend of two of my favorite desserts. It combines the flavors of my Avocado Lime Cheesecake, which is a frozen dessert, with the creaminess of my Lemon Curd Parfaits. I love the flavor of the Avocado Lime Cheesecake, but I had a craving for something lusciously creamy! So I used the same ingredients, but changed up the technique to make the filling creamier and, voila, it worked perfectly! Now I get all the amazing flavor of my frozen Avocado Lime Cheesecake, but in a creamilicious dessert! Enjoy!

Recipe type: Dessert, Parfaits
Serves: 6
Ingredients
For the graham cracker crumbs:
  • ½ package graham crackers (enough to make at least ¾ cup finely ground crumbs)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
For the homemade whipped topping:
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
For the avocado lime cheesecake filling:
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ ripe Haas avocado, pitted
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2½ tablespoons lime juice
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
For the graham cracker crumbs:
  1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse graham crackers until finely ground. This should be at least ¾ cup of crumbs.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons softened butter and pulse until combined. Set aside. This can also be done in a blender.
For the homemade whipped topping:
  1. Wipe the bowl of the food processor clean and add 1 cup heavy cream. Pulse for about 30 seconds to a minute until the cream just starts to thicken.
  2. Add ⅓ cup sugar and a pinch of salt and pulse for another 30 seconds until you have the consistency of whipped cream. Be careful not to over whip.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Note: The whipped cream can also be made using a mixer with the whisk attachment or even whisking by hand.
For the avocado lime cheesecake filling:
  1. Wipe the bowl of the food processor clean and add 1 cup chilled heavy cream. Pulse for about 30 seconds to a minute until it is just starting to thicken.
  2. Add ¼ cup sugar, ½ ripe Haas avocado, 3 ounces softened cream cheese, 2½ tablespoons lime juice, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Pulse another 30 seconds or until mixture thickens into whipped cream consistency. Watch this carefully. If you over whip it will break and you'll have to start over. It's so sad when that happens. Note: The avocado lime cheesecake filling can also be made using a mixer with the whisk attachment or even whisking by hand.
To assemble:
  1. Divide the graham cracker crumbs evenly among your dessert cups. I like to reserve a little to sprinkle on top as well.
  2. On top of the crumbs, spoon a dollop of the avocado lime cheesecake filling, dividing it evenly among your dessert cups.
  3. Top each one off with a dollop of the homemade whipped topping and garnish with graham cracker crumbs. The servings will vary depending on the size of your dessert cups. I was able to fill 6 (4 ounce) desserts cups.
