This is a recent recipe I developed specially for Bluebird Tea Co. It’s vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free! Which means that technically it’s good for you 🙂 It’s also really easy to make. Hope you like it!

  3. Make the filling – Roast the cashews in the oven for 2 – 3 minutes until very slightly browned. Add the rest of the filling ingredients into a food processor and process until thick and creamy.
  4. Measure half the mixture into a bowl, leaving the remaining half in the food processer. Add 100g of fresh blueberries and 1 tsp of berry powder and process until mixed. Pour the blueberry mixture into the cake tin and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  5. Clean out the food processer and pour the remaining mix in it along with the matcha powder. Process until mixed then pour on top of the blueberry layer. Leave to set in the freezer for an hour.
  6. Top with a dusting of matcha powder, blueberry powder and some fresh blueberries.
