1. Lightly coat a 6 inch spring form removable bottom pans with coconut oil.

Firmly press crust into the bottom of the prepared pan, and set aside.

2. To make the filling, drain the cashews and combine them with coconut, coconut water, coconut nectar, sea salt and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. 

3. With the processor running, add the coconut oil, and process for a minute until blended. 

4. Remove the filling from the food processor and divide into 3 bowls. 

5. Place one back into the food processor and add the 1/2 cup raspberries and strawberries. and beet.  Process until smooth and uniform in color and place back in the bowl. 

6. Add the second bowl to the food processor and 1 /2 cup blueberries.  Process until smooth and place back in the bowl.

7. To make the red berry swirl, puree 1/2 cup strawberries and raspberries in the food processor with 2 dates until smooth.  Remove from the food processor and set aside.


8. To assemble cheesecake, drop the different colors of filling over the crust by the Tbspful and the swirl by the teaspoonful and when they are all used up tap the bottom of the pan on the counter to level. Swirl with a knife starting at the outside of the circle and working your way in in a spiral fashion. Place the cheesecake in the freezer to firm up for about 4 hours until set before un-molding. Store leftover cake in the fridge.
