Mix all ingredients in food processor, except water. Pulse several times until fully incorporated. Add water and pulse a few times more. Set aside. Crust done...
Filling ; add all ingredients to food processor and mix well.
Line the bottom of spring form pan with parchment paper. Press crust ingredients into the bottom , making sure it is even. Should be about 1/4 ' thick. You can freeze any extra crust ingredients for up to a month.
Pour blueberry mixture into pan, or pans of choice. Cover well and place into freezer overnight. Release spring pan and place on decorative plate . Add garnish of fresh flowers, blueberries, or black sesame seeds.
Cooks Note; I used the dehydrated blueberries as they soak up some of the moisture from the liquid. I also added a bit more arrowroot for the same purpose. You can use one cup frozen berries, just add another tsp. arrowroot.
