Coco Cashew Berry Cheese Cake is the ultimate sweet burst of flavors that will make any party memorable.
Humpback whale: The inspiration for this pie came from the image of this beautiful Humpback whale printed on the plate.
SPERM and HUMPBACK whales and many other species are the gentle giants on our planet which once roamed the oceans freely. The dwindling population of these magnificent mammals is commercial whale hunting. The merciless slaughter by Japanese and Norwegian whaling ships hunting them into extinction on the guise of “Scientific research.” These great mammals play a vital role in the ocean and our planet’s ecological balance.
One of the key functions of these beautiful creatures of the oceans is they dive very deep in search of krill and other foods. They eat, then they come back up to the surface to breathe. During their time on the surface, they have to poop, what they have eaten and they poop plenty. 🙂 Most of these “whale poop” is a significant part of the ecological system of the ocean which enables the Plankton’s on the surface of the oceans to grow by feeding on them. The plankton contribution to produce oxygen for the atmosphere, is invaluable for our planet, without oxygen, all life form on earth dies.
Planktons produce more oxygen in the atmosphere than all the plants combined. We have the earth covered with 72 percent of water. There is more oxygen coming out of the ocean than all the forests on the land, which is approximately 20%.
As the Japanese and Norwegians use a loophole in the moratorium that “BANS” based on ” scientific research”. Whaling must stop at all-cause period. Permitting these two nations to continuously kill whales is directly destroying our planet.
All of us are responsible for stopping this wanton slaughter of our elegant friends of the Oceans.

1st layer crust
To make the crust place in a blender pitted Medjool dates, roasted almonds, walnuts, raisins, roasted hazelnuts, a pinch of salt, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoon coconut butter.
Blend until it's nutty and reaches a moldable consistency.
As you blend much of the nuts will stick to the side of the blender, Stop the blender, using a spatula push down into the middle, and blend again until you get the right smooth nutty crust base.
You may have to do this operation several times at slow speed work with patience no hurry. If you blend too much at high speed, the nuts will turn into a paste that's not what you want.
Take a ring pan and place the cut of vegetables or rice paper at the bottom that covers the whole base.
Place the nutty base and spread it out evenly and place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours to allow the base to get firm harden.
2nd layer cashew cream.
Soak two cups of the cashew nuts for 2-3 hours in water and after soaking discard all water or save it for soup or something else.
Using the same blender place all soaked cashew nuts into a blender, add the juice of one lemon, 1/4 cup rice syrup, stevia or honey, pinch of salt, one bar of coconut cream, Add the half cup of melted agar-agar, and then blend all ingredients until very smooth.
