Lavender lemon Raw Cheesecake

We love lavender!
What better way to use it in a sweets recipe

Springtime and lavender just seemed to go together, so we paired it with lemon for a raw style cheesecake. We used raw honey as a sweetener, but feel free to use Maple syrup or agave to make it vegan. Serve thawed from the freezer for a cheesecake like effect

1/2 cup dates
1 1/2 cup nuts (we suggest mixed almonds and walnuts)

3 cups cashews (soaked for 3-4 hours)
3/4 cups lemon juice
2/3 cup honey or maple syrup or agave
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp salt
2-4 tbsp dried lavender
1 tsp vanilla extract or seeds from 1/2 vanilla pod

For crust: blend dates and nuts I'm a food processor or blender until mixture becomes sticky. Place into cake pan and form into crust by pushing fingers and flattening mixture to bottom of pan.

To make the filling:
Blend all ingredients (including soaked nuts) together until smooth. Pour onto crust and set into freezer or fridge until it has the desired hardness. I leave mine overnight and let thaw 2 hors before serving. Take out of the cake pan and put it on your favorite serving plate. Buon appetito!
