Cover cashews with plenty of water the night before and let them soak overnight.

Preheat oven to 175 ° C. Crumble biscuits with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a food processor or blender to make fine crumbs. Squeeze a spoonful of crumbly dough with two fingers to test if the mass holds together easily. If it is still too dry, add another tablespoon of coconut oil.
Spread the crumb mixture on the bottom of a greased springform pan and press lightly. Bake in the oven for about 8 – 10 minutes slightly golden brown. Set aside for cooling.
Thoroughly rinse off the soaked cashews and place in a blender together with lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, coconut cream, coconut oil and salt. Mix until the cream has a smooth and supple texture.
In the meantime, bring 120 milliliters of coconut milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Agar-Agar Powder with constant stirring and let continue to simmer for about a minute. Then add the thickened coconut milk to the cashew cream in the blender and mix again until well blended.
Fill the cream on the biscuit bottom in the Springform and smooth. Then spread the blueberry puree with a tablespoon in blots on the cake. For marbling, it is best to slide a table knife over the surface of the cake and combine the purée blobs into a beautiful pattern with circular movements of the knife. Before serving, the cheesecake in the fridge should cool completely.
