Firmly press the mixture down in a cheesecake dish and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes (I actually lined a casserole dish with baking paper to make this recipe and it worked a treat).Whilst your base is setting, in a food processor, blend all of the cheesecake layer ingredients until smooth and well combined. Once your base layer is nice and firm, smooth over the cheesecake layer and place back into the freezer for 30-40 minutes.Finish with a handful of blueberries on top and voilà - time to devourer!I hope you give this recipe a go and if you do, please leave a comment.
