Choc blueberry cheesecake

INGREDIENTS: Base -  

 1 cup of walnuts  

 2 cups of almonds  

 1 cup of chopped dates  

  ¼ cup of desiccated coconut  

 2 tbs of coconut oil, melted (for the base)  

  ¼ cup of cocoa powder  

 drizzle of water. Filling -  

 3 cups of cashews, soaked in water overnight  

 1 x 400ml tin of coconut milk  

 1 cup of frozen blueberries, thawed  

  1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted (for filling)  

 1 tbs of honey  

 1 tsp of vanilla paste. To top -  

 1 cup of fresh blueberries  

  ½ cup of cashews, chopped roughly  

 2 tbs of cocoa powder  

 3 tbs of coconut oil, melted.

METHOD:

To make the base, prepare by oiling with spray oil a 23cm round fluted tart tin. In a food processor add walnuts and almonds - blitz until they look like breadcrumbs.

Add dates, coconut, cocoa powder - blitz again. Add coconut oil and blitz - if still too dry add a little water - when pressed to the side of the processor it should stick.

Pour into your tart tin and press firmly to cover the entire base, then place into the fridge to firm up. After you have soaked the cashews overnight, drain and place into the food processor and blitz for the filling.

Add coconut milk, coconut oil, blueberries, honey and vanilla paste - blitz for 3-4 minutes until really smooth.

Pour on to the base, then place into fridge overnight to set. In a small bowl add cocoa powder and coconut oil together, stir until really smooth.

Arrange the blueberries and cashews over the top of the cheesecake, giving some height and then drizzle over the chocolate. Place back into fridge for 30 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
