Ingredients (Crust):

1 cup Raw almonds or nut of choice

1 cup Medjool dates

¼ tsp. sea salt

Ingredients (Filling):

2 1/2 cups Raw cashews (soaked in water for 2 or more hours)

Juice of 2 lemons

1/3 cup Coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup Honey or Agave

1 cup Blueberries

 

Directions:

To make crust, take nuts and chop in a food processor until it’s into small bits. Remove. Place dates in food processor. Process until it acts like a dough balls. Remove. In bowl mix dates and nuts, than take “dough” and form into crust into bottom of pan. (NOTE: Line bottom of pan with saran wrap for easy removal.)

To make the filling, place nuts into food processor and blend until smooth. This will take a while. Heat honey and oil in microwave safe bowl and add to processor. Keep blending. You want it to look like a think whipped cream. Once consistency has been achieve pour 2/3 of mixture into pan. To the remaining 1/3 still in processor add the berries. Mix. Now, pour remaining mixture on top of middle layer. Place in freezer to set for at least on hour. Pull out of freezer 1/2 hour before serving. Slice with shape knife and enjoy!
