Lavender Raw Cheesecake 3 Comments / Desserts / By Mariel Lewis If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen pictures that showcase Nikki’s Coconut Butters products. I am seriously obsessed with her coconut butters. Truly, I am. I eat those butters by the spoonful, eat them along with fruit (mostly bananas and berries), or use them as a key ingredient on some of my Paleo dessert recipes. A few of my Instagram followers wanted to know what recipes I’ve made with these, so I told them I would soon share some recipes that carry Nikki’s Coconut Butters on my blog. And today is that day! The recipe I am about to share with you guys is creamy, sweet, rich and crazy satisfying! It’s a cheesecake recipe, but this one (unlike what you’d get at a grocery store or restaurant) doesn’t have any dairy, grains, or any processed sugars. Instead, it’s made with the best raw and organic ingredients, which are nutrient-rich and anti-inflammatory. Gotta love Paleo eating! I absolutely LOVE making my own Paleo foods and desserts, because not only do I get to prepare foods that I like and crave, but I get to control the ingredients that go into making my recipes. I get to choose the ingredients that my body reacts well too, as well as the quality of each of my ingredients. Two very important factors, that do make a difference in how you feel and look. My husband and I shared this Lavender Raw Cheesecake with some of our friends after dinner a few weeks ago, and we all devoured. We topped our cheesecake slices off with my Mixed Berry Jam and a few roasted cashew pieces (but my Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce would also be incredible on it). It was so good, that our friends asked to see the coconut butter that I used to make this cheesecake. I had four different flavors of Nikki’s Coconut Butters in my pantry, so I decided to bring them all out to the dinner table for them to see (not just the one that I used for this recipe, which was the Honey Pecan Pie one). And, even though we had already finished eating our dessert (and a large and satisfying dinner), we still managed to grab spoonfuls of that “butter magic”. They’re just too good to pass! If you haven’t tried Nikki’s Coconut Butters yet, and are thinking you would like to get some for your home…you definitely should. I’m totally endorsing them! 😉 Click here to get this delicious Lavender RAW Cheesecake recipe! Ps: this recipe calls for lavender oil drops; make sure you use an essential oil that is 100% pure, therapeutic grade — I used this one from Young Living!
