Raw Blueberry Cheesecake :.
So I made something pretttty awesome for my boyfriends mom for mother's day. I made a mini one for us as well, so I know how good it is :) Hehe. Soooooo good. And soaking cashews for 5+ hours for this, is a must. Believe me. So start soaking 1 1/2 cups of cashews now! :) Then proceed to read the rest of this!
So here ya go. After you make it, let me know how you like it! By the way if you want to replace the blueberries for strawberries or raspberries, you can too ! :)
(You will need a food processor for this )
For the crust :
1/2 cup dates
1/2 cup walnuts (almonds or pecans would work too)
For the filling:
1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked over night or at least 5 hours)
1 cup blueberries (I used fresh, but you could also use frozen I suppose)
1/4- 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp. lemon juice
Pour in 'crust' ingredients and pulse until the mixture sticks and holds together. Then place onto
pan and form into a crust layer. I made my own shape, but you can put it in any shape you'd like. Even a heart if you'd like :) Get creative. :)
Then place all ingredients of filling in food processor, until very smooth, and pour on top of crust. Smooth out with a spatula, and then put into freezer to set, for at least 3 hours. And then, keep in refrigerator until time to serve :) Enjoy! Hope ya'll had a great weekend.
And these are the flowers we got her- which I wrapped in burlap for an extra pretty touch:)

Krysten - just put together this blueberry cheezecake and wondered if you used a regular food processor or a Vitamix? My filling wasn't as smooth as I think it should be and thinking I should have used the Vitamix. Just stuck it in the freezer so I'm anxious to see how it turns out. Batter tasted good, so that's a plus :) Thank you for the recipe!

oh no :( I do use a food processor. But the key to making it smooth is soaking the cashews for 5 hours or more. And then draining them. I have however made this before I tried soaking it, the consistency wasn't smooth, but it was still good :) If you have a vitamix, by all means use that! I heard their amazing :) Regardless, I hope it turns out tasting good for you :)

I did soak the cashews for 6 hours so that's why I was surprised it wasn't as smooth as I thought it should be. LOVED this recipe though, very tasty! I will be making it again when I have guests next week. Thanks for the response!
