Individual no bake blueberry cheesecake needs to be your go-to summer dessert. So easy to make and so delicious!
It’s Memorial Day weekend folks!!! That means summer is here, right? Well, if its only in the 50’s or lower where you are, don’t worry, hot humid days are on their way. And what every hot and humid day needs is a great no-bake dessert.
May 26th happens to be National Blueberry Cheesecake Day so I’m celebrating with Driscoll’s and a delicious, individual no bake blueberry cheesecake.
I have a confession to make… up until a few years ago, I hated cheesecake. If I saw it on a dessert table I would run away screaming. Well, obviously that is an exaggeration but I definitely passed down any slice that was served my way. Second confession… I had never actually tried cheesecake. I just didn’t like the thought of it.
Enter Mr. B., CCL (Chief Cheesecake Lover).
At some point in our relationship, he convinced me to make a cheesecake and I did, not knowing what it was supposed to taste like. I knew when it came out of the oven that I had gotten the look right. But the taste? I had no idea. He was at work still and I figured if I didn’t try it I might be giving him a slice of something awful.
I put on my big-girl pants and cut myself a sliver. Seriously, the smallest sliver that ever lived. I ate it. And loved it.
It was like a thousand bells went off and whistles blew and lights flashed on and off. I had been denying myself the delicious goodness of cheesecake for so many years out of fear and some weird aversion to the word cheesecake. It makes sense that if I love cheese and I love cake that I would love cheesecake. Big “Duh Jen!” moment for sure.
I haven’t turned down another piece of cheesecake since.
Individual No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe
What better treat to serve at a holiday barbecue or party than a no bake blueberry cheesecake? Seriously, that is a real question. These individual cheesecakes are perfect for sitting around a table and chatting with your friends. A glass of wine in one hand, a cheesecake in the other… need I go on?
My recipe is for 4 large portions but you could easily make smaller individual portions by halving the amounts. I used stemless wine glasses as my serving vessel – a great substitute are ball jars or ramekins.
The bottom layer is a mixture of crushed graham crackers and crumbled vanilla wafer cookies. Next is the blueberry cheesecake mixture followed by fresh blueberries and lots of whipped cream. Dig in with a long handled spoon all the way to the bottom to get some of the crumbly “crust” and enjoy!
I was provided with free product from Driscoll’s for this recipe. All opinions and recipe are my own.
