Hi everyone! So as I promised on Instagram, I have an amazing recipe here for you. Today’s recipe is of the bright, tropical Mini Guava Cheesecake!
So while I have always been fully aware of the flavor of guava, considering I grew up in a Samoan family, Rodney was not aware. So remember when I had my cross country road trip last fall? Well during that road trip, I made it my mission to taste and experience the foodie culture for each state that I was in. (Read about my trip here) So of course, while we were in New Mexico, it was important that I had some yummy Mexican food. Not only did I discover my major love for enchiladas while in New Mexico, but Rodney found his love for guava!
After our authentic Mexican dinner, I made Rodney drive to probably 3 different bakeries, in the search for the famous biscochito. After plenty of searching, we finally found a bakery that was still open and selling not only biscochitos, but also a little bit of everything else. So I decided to pick out an empanada as well, and of course I went for the guava empanada to try to enjoy the experience as best as possible. Let me tell you, all I had was one bite, once I let Rodney try some, he ate the whole thing! Ever since then, Rodney is a fan of guava, and the rest is history.
So below is a fun, easy recipe. These cheesecakes feature macadamia nut and guava for a bright, tropical twist.
