Banana Avocado Cheesecake – Easy Dessert

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a way to use up those bananas? This banana avocado cheesecake is creamy, easy to make, and will shock you with its deliciousness.

This banana avocado cheesecake was created out of needing to use up bananas and avocados. The result? Deliciousness.

I have to start off by saying: I don’t like avocados.

I’ve never really been a fan. Guacamole isn’t my thing and I couldn’t even fathom having it sliced on a sandwich or over a salad. Um, no thank you.

Now, in an effort to create irony in my home, fate has made my husband and my daughter love avocados.

I always feel bad about not using it more in our diet for them, because avocados are pretty healthy, so this banana avocado cheesecake recipe is dedicated to them. It’s also dedicated to all of you that not only like avocado, but are in love with bananas too.

Use Up Those Bananas

The beauty of this dessert is it’s a great way to use up those bananas in the house that are getting a little too brown. 

I know it’s all relative when it comes to the perfect banana, but we can all agree that the brown bananas need to be turned into banana bread, banana muffins or this cheesecake. Amen.

P.S.- this makes 2 regular pie sized cheesecakes or one deep dish cheesecake.

Banana Avocado Cheesecake

1 8oz bar cream cheese, room temperature
1 ripe avocado, chopped
2 ripe(or over-ripe) bananas, chopped
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
Mix-in-the-pan crusts (which is what I used) or 2 graham cracker crusts

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Place the avocado, bananas and lemon juice in a stand mixer and mix together for about 3 minutes. You want the get most of the lumps out, but if both are ripe or over-ripe, that won’t be a problem.
Place in the cream cheese and continue to beat until smooth.
Add in the egg, sugar and salt. Beat until fully incorporated.
Add in the vanilla and continue to mix for a few more seconds.
Place in crust and cook for 25 to 30 minutes.
Allow to cool for 3 to 4 hours, or overnight.

    By small pies, you mean if I buy two premade graham cracker crusts, that will be just right?

    Thanks for this post. I can’t wait to try it. Sounds really easy and delicious! (My son and I are huge avocado lovers, btw!)

    Hi James! Yup, two pre made graham cracker crusts would be fine. I would get the regular size ones, not the deep dish. I hope you like it!

    Your comments, Amiyrah, are my favorite 4Hatsandfrugal post EVER! I’m so happy you put into words what needed to be said.

    “Anonymous” is just that: anonymous and yes, an outright coward. Remember, Maya Angelou’s quote? Here it is: “When people show you the first time who they are, believe them.” Yeah, that applies to “Anonymous”.

    Your reply is powerful and simply eloquent. But I expect no less from you. You are an amazing, courageous and wonderful soul who I admire more than you will ever know.
