Preparation

  1. To make crust, set aside 1/4 cup of the cacao nibs. Place remaining nibs, walnuts, dates, and vanilla in a food processor and grind until crumbly dough has formed. Check moisture level by pinching the dough to ensure it sticks - if not, blend in a little water, a teaspoon at a time. Transfer to a bowl and mix in remaining cacao nibs. Cover until needed.
  2. To make filling, in a food processor or blender, mix the cashews with the juice, nectar, and oil. Blend until completely smooth. Add acai, vanilla, banana mash, tahini, dates, salt, and half the blueberries. Blend again.
  3. To assemble, in a 9 inch springform pan, distribute crust mixture evenly and press down to form a compact flat layer. Pour filling on top. Cover, and place in freezer for about an hour. Remove the chilled cake and decorate with the remaining blueberries, pressing down slightly to make them stick. Re-cover and freeze for another 2-3 hours. To serve, release cake from pan and defrost for 3-4 minutes to soften.
