First, line the bottom of an 8 inch springform pan or cheesecake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Make the bottom crust first. Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until combined. Mixture will be crumbly and nuts broken up. Press this mixture into the bottom of your springform pan and set aside.
To make the cheesecake filling, add all ingredients (EXCEPT blueberries) to a clean blender and blend until smooth. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender with a spoon or spatula. Keep blending until smooth and uniform. Pour HALF of this mixture down into springform pan.
Add the blueberries to the remaining half of the cheesecake mixture that’s still in the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour this on top of first cheesecake layer in pan. Place covered in freezer while you make the topping.
To make the topping, simply blend the ingredients together. Pour this over cheesecake layers. Freeze for at least 2 hours until frozen through.
To serve, allow cheesecake to thaw on the countertop for 5-10 minutes before cutting into. Store leftovers covered in the freezer for best results.
