How to prepare No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake?

Start by making homemade blueberry sauce.

In a medium dish put blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and 6 tablespoons of water and heat at moderate temperature until it boils. Meanwhile, mix 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water and pour in a pan with the boiling mixture of fruit. It’s important to keep stirring until it starts thickening. Then, remove from heat and let it cool completely. Meanwhile, make graham cracker crust and cheesecake filling.

To make graham cracker crust

Crumble graham crackers in a food processor and mix with melted butter. Then, press the mixture on the bottom of a 9×9 inch pan sprayed with non- stick spray and leave it in the fridge.

To make cheesecake filling

 First, you need to mix softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and lemon juice until it becomes smooth. In a separate dish, whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form, then fold it in a bowl with cream cheese mixture and mix until it’s well combined. Next, take the graham crust out of the fridge and spread cheesecake filling on top. Finally, top it with homemade blueberry sauce, Wrap and leave in the fridge for at least 4h.

TIPS AND TRICKS: 

Don’t forget to spray the baking pan with non-stick spray, so that the crust doesn’t get stuck to the pan.

Use whipping cream very cold – it’ll be easier to whip it.

If you want blueberries to keep their form- don’t overcook the blueberry sauce, use moderate heat and remove from heat when it starts to thicken. It will thicken more when it cools, especially if it’s refrigerated.

Make sure the blueberry sauce is completely cooled before you spread it on top of cheesecake filling.

Can whipping topping be used instead of whipping cream?

Yes, use an 8 Oz pack.

Storing the extras

Keep them refrigerated in an airtight container, or wrapped no longer than 3 days.

Can I freeze No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake?

 Yes, you can. My advice is to cut the cheesecake into preferable size pieces, then place them on the plate and freeze without wrapping. Take the frozen cake out of the freezer and put it in a zip lock bag. They can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.
