Lemon Berry Swirl Cheesecake

Crust
1 1/2 cups almonds
2/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon pure vanilla

Grind the almonds into a flour in a food processor. (unfortunately our blender wasn’t capable of this so mine were still a bit chunky!!)
Add the raisins and continue grinding until broken down.
Add the coconut and vanilla. Grind again to incorporate.
Add another 1/2 – 1 teaspoon water if needed to keep the mixture held together when pressed in your hand.
Press evenly into the bottom of a 12″ spring form pan.

Filling
3 cups cashews
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons lemon juice
2/3 cup agave or other liquid sweetener (I used golden syrup)
Pinch of salt
Lemon zest (from all juiced lemons)
1 cup melted coconut oil
4 cups mixed berries

Blend all except the oil and berries.

Add half of the oil and blend again until completely smooth.
Transfer 1/2 – 2/3 cup of the mixture to a small bowl.
Add all the berries and other half of the oil back to the mixture in the blender and blend until smooth.

Pour the filling evenly over the crust.

Pour blobs of the lemon cream on top.

Using a chopstick, push each blob down into the berry filling before swirling it into the berry cream on the surface.
Chill in the fridge for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
I chucked some strawberries ontop after it had set :)
