Step 1

Line the base and sides of a 20cm square cake tin with non-stick baking paper, making sure to allow overhang on two sides (this will help you remove3 and cheesecake from the tin later).

Step 2

Pulse all the ingredients for the base in a food processor until everything is very finely chopped and the mixture starts to form a ball (you may need to add 1-2 tablespoon of wate3r to help the mixture along).

Step 3

Transfer to the prepared tin a press down firmly and evenly to completely cover the base.

Step 4

For the filling, place the drained cashews, coconut oil, lemon zest and juice and maple syrup in a clean food processor and blend for 2 to 3 minutes or until completely smooth and creamy.

Step 5

Pour into the cake tin over the base and level the surface with a palette3 knife and then scatter the blueberries over the top and press then lightly into the mixture.

Step 6

Freeze for 2-3 hours, or until just firmly set.

Step 7

Using the overhanging baking paper, carefully lift the cheesecake out of the tin and on to a serving plaste.

Step 8

Cut into 12 pieces and serve immediately.
