Avocado (No Cheese) Cheesecake

This A.M.  I have to admit I was a bit of a skeptic when I decided to make an avocado cheesecake.  I did some research online and looked at all different types of avocado recipes.  Every photo looked great.  When cooking and baking it is really important how food looks, so I thought I would give it a try.   The challenge I encountered next was that I didn't have half of the ingredients any of the recipes called for.  But this didn't stop me!  I knew I could pull it off with what main ingredients I did have in my fridge and cupboard.  

So here it is,  the no cheese version of avocado cheesecake with a gluten free chocolate crust.
The cake is sweetened with honey and lime with a buttery chocolate balance of organic coconut chocolate crust. Topped with raspberries and frothy milk.
