Vegan Lavender Lemon-Berry Cheesecake! Yummy Yummy Baby!

Good Day!

Through out my childhood, my mother would tell me stories about how I could never keep any milk down as an infant. She surrounded me with pillows so I could always be sitting up because the doctors told her it was just reflux… The doctors told her a lot of babies have this… it’s totally normal! Β What?!?

So I’m throwing up all the time, I can’t keep any formula down… but this is totally normal?!?

Years of ER visits, years of stomach x-rays… years of drinking radio-active barium drinks to light up my intestines, but Nobody… NOT ONE DOCTOR ever stopped to consider that I may be eating something that may be hurting my stomach. :-/

So all of my infancy, all through Elementary School, Middle School and High School… I secretly lived with severe stomach pain… I was convinced it was all in my head, so I kept eating everything I wanted.

I worked out like crazy… thinking the bloated stomach has to go away if I just exercise more! Maybe if I just stop eating all together the pain would go away. Well, I love food so darn much, that never lasted past breakfast… lol πŸ™‚

Well years later, I’m desperately looking for a waitress job that can help me pay my way through college. Well the only place that would hire me was a Vegan Restaurant…

Vegan, what in the world is Vegan?!? I had no idea… but I took the job Β πŸ™‚

I received free yummy yummy food and a pay-check… You can’t beat that! Β Well after working there a couple of weeks, my stomach aches disappeared! Wow… Awesome!

Come to learn, I am dairy intolerant and have very low enzymes that do not break down protein properly… Are you kidding me? All those years it wasn’t in my head?!? I can live life and not have to secretly be in pain?

If there is one thing I miss about not eating Dairy… it’s cheese and cheesecake! Β *but I do cheat on special occasions πŸ™‚

Well here is a super yummy recipe for Lavender-Lemon-Berry Cheesecake! Honestly, it is better than real cheesecake! Β Now the cheesecake with out the Berry topping is good… But with the Berry Topping… It is Deelicious! Β Or as my baby would say, Deewishess!

Lavender Lemon-Berry Cheesecake


1/2 cup Dates
1 1/2 cups Nuts (I mixed, washed and soaked walnuts and almonds)

Surround the inside of a cake pan with wax paper. Process dates and nuts together until you get a rough, sticky mixture that you can pat down with your hands into the bottom of the cake pan. (I also added a drizzle of agave). Place it in your fridge or freezer if you are in a hurry.

3 cups Cashews (preferably soaked for 3-4 hours)
3/4 cup Organic Fresh Lemon Juice
2/3 cup Coconut Nectar
3/4 cup melted extra virgin, cold pressed Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract/seeds from 1/2 Vanilla Pod

1-3 teaspoons dried Lavender (depends on how much you like Lavender; I used 3)

*or you can use Organic Food Grade Lavender Oil (2 to 4 drops)

Lavender is a strong taste so I suggest going easy at first then add more if you like

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. It will taste… Deeelicious!

Pour the mix onto the crust in a cake pan and set in the freezer or fridge until it has the hardness you want (probably 3-5 hours or overnight). Take it out of the cake pan holding onto the wax paper and then put it on your favorite plate.


1 Β 1/2 Cups of Organic Raspberries

1 Β Large Organic Banana

1/2 Tablespoon of Coconut Nectar

1/4 Teaspoon of Fresh Lemon Juice

Blend all the ingredients together until it is like a liquid… I use my Nutribullet!

Drizzle the sauce all over every slice and get ready because it is Deelicious!

Yummy Yummy Baby!
