With Shavout right around the corner I am busy planning an assortment of dairy meals. Naturally, when I think of a dessert to follow a dairy meal my thoughts turn to ice cream. Not that I don’t make my fair share of parve ice cream for all kinds of meals, but dairy ice cream is a rare treat around here and Shavout is the perfect excuse. I recently developed a whole bunch of fun ice cream flavor combinations for the new Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller magazine. Some of the flavors, like Deconstructed Cheesecake and Coffee Toffee are only in the print magazine, but there are also some great flavors on the website as well. (For those of you who cannot eat dairy there is also a great parve mint cookie ‘n cream ice cream recipe)

Although it is traditional to serve a dairy meal on Shavout with cheesecake for dessert I know that not everyone can comfortably enjoy dairy. Here are some delicious non-dairy cheesecakes that are sure to please all who try them. After all, everyone shoud be able to have cheesecake for Shavout.
