Blueberry Cheesecake

What a great time of year for blueberries! I love incorporating blueberries into anything this time of year, but I really loved featuring it in this no bake Blueberry Cheesecake recipe.

It not only tastes like a masterpiece but it looks like one too. The colors of the blueberries make this dish look so fresh. It’s the perfect spring dessert.

As you can see the colors just pop in this recipe. After I made my homemade crust with graham crackers and melted butter, I started separating the cheesecake mixture. I mixed together the cheesecake and separated it into 3 different bowls. One layer had the blueberries, the other had the juice and the final layer (the top layer) I kept white.

That allowed me to use some leftover blueberry juice as a decoration on top. Using a toothpick I created this design.

I put the Blueberry Cheesecake into the freezer for several hours. The key is to let the layers set and then refrigerate it from there.

This was the perfect dessert to add this beautiful purple flower and top with fresh blueberries. I added a little sugar on top of the blueberries for added sweetness.

Unfortunately, the flower isn’t edible but just for decoration:). The blueberries are for eating though and the perfect topping for this dessert.

The perfect dessert!
