Raw Vegan Blueberry "Cheesecake"

How good is this colour ?? Blueberries are one of my favourite in the berry family. They are so delicious, versatile and high in antioxidants. Fun fact -they are also one of the national foods of Finland. Try out this super easy and delicious recipe - it's a perfect quick afternoon snack when you just need that "little something".

Firstly - soak 2 cups raw cashews for a couple of hours, until soft.

In a food processor, combine - 1 cup of sunflower seeds, 1.5 cups pitted dates, 1 tbsp vanilla paste and 1 tsp black sesame seeds. Whizz together until it resembles crumbs. Press into a shallow 20 cm pan. Refrigerate.

Process - the soaked cashews, 2 cups blueberries (if using frozen - allow to soften a little), 1/2 cup of maple syrup, 1 tbsp lime juice, 1 tbsp favourite nut butter (I used almond butter) and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth and a deep, rich purple colour. Pour over the crust and spread evenly.

Freeze for about 3 hours. Allow to sit for a few minutes before cutting. Store in the freezer.

Delicious served with fresh blueberries and coconut yogurt. Be inspired by nature's colours !
