Collagen Lavender & Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

lavender and lemon collagen cheesecake

As the weather slowly begins to improve (fingers crossed!), we can’t think of a more delicious way to celebrate the arrival of spring than by baking this Lavender & Lemon Cheesecake.

This collagen recipe contains all the typical ingredients associated with cheesecake – like dairy-free cream cheese, coconut sugar and gluten-free digestive biscuit crumbs – but with a twist. And no, we’re not just talking about the addition of lemon zest and lemon juice. We’ve incorporated two scoops of Vital Proteins Beauty Collagen® in Lavender Lemon to the baking mixture.

Here’s what makes our Lavender & Lemon Beauty Collagen so special: it contains 12g of collagen per serving, 120mg of skin-loving hyaluronic acid, live bacteria, lavender, lemon, blueberry and beet.

Let’s dig in!
