Lia tried to convert Jacque to Feijoas by making a Feijoa and Lime cheesecake inspired by Bite, which everyone loved (Jacque still not convinced!). It's super easy and really delicious - here's the recipe....

250 g Gingernuts or Anzac biscuits ( i used malt biscuits)
100 g Butter, melted

10 medium Feijoas, approx 250g scooped flesh
1 Lime, finely grated rind and juice
250 g Cream cheese, at room temperature
¾ cup Greek yoghurt
2 Tbsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla essence

3 tsp Powdered Gelatine
125ml Boiling water - or follow instructions on your Gelatine packet


1. Lightly butter the sides and base of a 20cm springform cake pan. Line the base with baking paper.
2.Crush the biscuits very finely. Keep a 1/4 cup aside to sprinkle on top. Combine the remainder with the butter. Press onto the base of the pan. Chill.
3. Blend the feijoa flesh and lime rind and juice in a food processor, until smooth. Add the cream cheese, yoghurt, honey, vanilla essence and blend until smooth. Dissolve the gelatine in the boiling water and add to the filling. Mix well.
4. Pour onto the biscuit base. Cover and chill for 3 hours or overnight.
