Heather Pace made this delectable dessert, she tells all "The neutral flavour and creamy texture of avocado won. I paired it with simple classic vanilla for a nut-free cheesecake filling. It included lots of coconut - in the crust, in the filling, and sprinkled as a garnish. I topped it with frozen/thawed strawberries and drizzled yacon syrup around the plate. I like how the berries add a natural syrup."
