  1. Prepare the crust: Put all ingredients for the crust into a food processor and process until moist and crumbly.
  2. Prepare the crust: Divide the crust mixture evenly into a 12-cavity mini cheesecake pan and press down firmly.
  3. Prepare the crust: Put the crust in the freezer to harden while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
  4. Prepare the filling: Peel and dice the zucchini and add it with all the ingredients for the filling into a Vitamix and blend until creamy and smooth.
  5. Prepare the filling: Remove the cheesecake pan from the freezer and pour the filling on top of the crust.
  6. Prepare the topping: Put all the ingredients for the topping in a small bowl and stir until smooth and well combined.
  7. Assembly: Add small dollops of the topping on top of each cheesecake and swirl around in a circle with the tip of a knife.
  8. Assembly: Put in the freezer for approximately 2 - 4 hours, or until it hardens and becomes firm.
  9. Storage: Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve (do not leave it out at room temperature because it will become soft and lose its shape).
