Raw blueberry cheesecake 

Ingredients

1/3 cup (approx. 75g) raw almonds
1/4 cup (approx. 40g) dates 
1 cup (approx. 125g) cashew nuts
1/2 cup (approx. 55g) blueberries 
1 piece of lime
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp organic honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch unrefined salt 

Method

Soak the cashews in water overnight.

Remove the seeds from the dates and wash them.

Mix the base ingredients – raw almonds, dates and salt – in a blender. 

Use your hands to distribute the mix in the bottom of a baking dish.

Mix the lime juice, cashew nuts, coconut oil, honey and vanilla in the blender until it turns into a solid cream base.

Pour this mix into the baking dish and spread evenly. Place two-thirds of the blueberries in a bowl and mash with a fork; spread this over the mixture.

Place the cheesecake into the fridge overnight or for a minimum of three to four hours, and place the rest of the blueberries on top for decoration.
