Raw Lavender and Lemon Cheesecake [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
I know the flavors are rather summery, and yet, it's winter. But I thought "what the heck"... I doubt anyone will complain. I highly suggest you make this as soon as possible, and feel your world come alive. This is actually my first raw cheesecake, and I now know it will become one of my stand-by special desserts. It's truly delightful.

It's wonderful how, with one bite, you first get the taste of lemon, fresh and light; then right after, you begin to taste the subtle lavender coming through and are surprised by how much you like it!

Who could have imagined a handful of raw, whole foods could create such a beautiful and elegant dish? Well, I'm not gonna lie... I could easily imagine it. But that's only because I'm so in love with raw desserts (and food).

Yum! I was about to make a batch of lemongrass soap, then I saw this and I had to add a little lavender. Nice!

this might be vegan but it's not healthy. It's a fat/sugar cocktail.

When does a cheesecake means healthy anyway?? Even the non-vegan ones aren\'t healthy at all..
