2.  Take a 9 1/2″ pie pan with removable bottom like this one and form the mixture into the pan for your crust.  

3.  Place crust in the freezer… on to the filling next.

Filling

1.  Drain and dry off your soaked cashews

2.  Place the nuts and all other ingredients into your food processor and blend until incorporated and very creamy (no chunks).  

3.  Once you have your filling, remove your crust from the freezer and add your filling in the middle of the pie crust and smooth over evenly. 

4.  Place back in freezer and let it setup over night.

5.  When you’re ready to serve, take it out of the freezer and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.  You can keep this one stored in the fridge afterwards.

Optional before serving:  after 15-20 minutes removed from freezer you can line the top of your pie with your fresh blueberries.
