4. Drain cashews and process in food processor until finely chopped. Add coconut oil, lemon juice, banana and vanilla and process until creamy. Add blueberry juice and process until combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir through berry pulp.

5. Pour mixture over base and chill overnight until set. Remove from pan and decorate with extra blueberries. Cut into wedges to serve.
