Red, white and blue vegan 'cheesecake'

Our wonderful Queen is 90 tomorrow! 
In celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday, I have made this red white and blue vegan 'cheesecake'.  The red colour comes from the raspberries, the white from coconut and the blue from blueberries (admittedly these can be towards the purple end of blue but they are close!).  The end result is delicious.

Red, white and blue vegan 'cheesecake'
Serves 3-4

For the base 

100g dairy free spread
150g rice flour 
5g stevia
pinch cinnamon
20g hazelnuts, crushed (place in a plastic bag and roll to crush with a rolling pin)

For the middle layer
75g cashews, soaked overnight
1 can full fat coconut milk 
1 sachet vegetarian setting agent
2 tablespoons stevia or to taste
100g blueberries

For the topping 
100g raspberries 
1 tbsp stevia or to taste

To make the biscuit layer, cream the spread and stevia then add the flour and cinnamon and mix to form a biscuit dough.  Add the crushed hazelnuts and work into the dough until evenly distributed.  Roll the dough into a round, prick with a fork and bake at 200 degrees for around 20 minutes. Divide the cooled biscuit round into 3 or 4 and crumble into glasses.  

To make the middle layer, separate the coconut cream off and set aside.  Make the remaining liquid up to 500ml and heat to boiling then stir in the vegetarian setting agent. Remove from the heat, add the coconut cream and cashew nuts and blend on a high speed blender. Divide between the glasses then stir some of the blueberries through the coconut 'cheese' mixture. Leave to set.

To make the topping heat the raspberries with the stevia until the raspberries begin break up. Cool then use to top the coconut and blueberry 'cheese' mixture.
