 In a food processor blend the almonds, the dates, the shredded coconut, and the cinnamon. Press the crust into the bottom of a springform pan.

Take the soaked cashews and blend in a food processor with the lemon juice, the lemon extract, the agave and the coconut cream. Scoop from the food processor and place evenly on top of the crust.
Take the mixed berries and pulse in a food processor with a little bit of coconut cream and a tablespoon of agave syrup. Swirl into the filling mixture. (This gives it a tie-dye effect.)
