Paleo and Keto Mini Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecakes

Happy Friday, guys!

It's been a really nice week. Tristan, my five-year-old was on school vacation. We went to Disney on Ice, took trips to the library, and went to an open gymnastics hour today.  He even helped me bake a lot of treats, including these little cheesecakes. He is the cutest little helper, he loves to feel important. I realized that I need to start taking more photos of him helping me, he really does a wonderful job! :)

Even though I eat primarily grain-free, I was still consuming organic dairy frequently. I don't have any digestive issues with dairy, but it's always good to include less dairy from your diet. After all, cow milk is for baby cows, not humans. However, I cannot deny it is delicious.

I needed something to satisfy my cheesecake craving and these guys did just the trick. They are super easy to throw together for a last-minute dinner party or just as a treat for yourself. The kids loved these, and they were the perfect dessert for Tristan to help me with because you totally cannot mess these up. They require zero baking or heating.

I have a refurbished Vitamix that I absolutley LOVE. Vitamix has an amazing warantee. I have never had any issues with mine and it is such a quality product. I use it almost every day. You can find Certified-Refurbished Vitamixes here!
