This "cheesecake" is perfect to prepare in advance if you want to avoid standing in the kitchen all day making food for your guests. It's also perfect, in our case, to have as a snack when you need some quick (and tasty) energy.
I've really fallen in love with working with cashew nuts, they're easy to do whatever you fancy with and the taste is quite neutral (if you haven't roasted them) which is why you can easily flavour them with what you feel like. I chose to work with blueberries because, well honestly, those where the only berries we had at home. But I also wanted to complement the acai color, and really make it pop, so blueberries it was.
I also prefer desserts that are slightly savoury and not too sweet. In other words, more interesting and maybe even challenging in taste, and this cheesecake really has the best of both worlds.
2,5 dl cashew nuts
2 dl blueberries
1 tbsp agave syrup
