Folks. My kitchen does not have air conditioning. I have a big window that lets in a mediocre breeze but otherwise I’m dependent on a pretty strong fan to cool the room off.
So, in the summer or on a freak 80-degrees-in-March day, my oven goes into hibernation. I should cover it with one of those giant covers car collectors use for their fancy vehicles so it doesn’t get dusty. Wait, that’s a little overboard, ha!
A hot, hot kitchen and a love for sweet stuff meant I had to come up with some great no-bake desserts. Enter 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. (Now I’m a big fan of mini cheesecakes!)
Second confession… I had never actually tried cheesecake. I just didn’t like the thought of it.
I remember the first day I tried cheesecake. 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 individual 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 canning 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!
Can I make this into one large no bake cheesecake?
You sure can. Use a baking dish like an 8-inch square casserole dish or a 9.5 inch deep pie baking dish. Follow all of the instructions below up until the assembly section, then assemble without dividing the ingredients amongst 4 wine glasses.
How long does no bake cheesecake take to set?
Individual no bake cheesecakes take about 1 hour to set in the refrigerator. Regular-size no bake cheesecakes take 2-3 hours to set and become firm.
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup blueberries
- ⅔ cup crumbled graham crackers
- ⅔ cup crumbled vanilla wafer cookies
- fresh blueberries
- whipped cream
- In a food processor, puree the blueberries until the large chunks are gone and the blueberries are mostly liquified.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium until smooth. Lower the speed to low and add the heavy cream. When mixture is combined add the powdered sugar, ¼ at a time. Increase speed to medium and beat until combined. Add the blueberry puree and mix until combined.
- In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the vanilla wafer crumbs.
- In the bottom of a wine glass or mason jar, place ¼ cup of the crumb mixture. Layer ¾ cup cheesecake mixture on top of that. Layer fresh blueberries on top of that and top with whipped cream.
- Repeat with the other 3 glasses. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
