These Lemon Blueberry No-Bake Cheesecakes are a healthier twist on the traditional dessert. They’re both portable and adorable - perfect for your next brunch or picnic!
I have ALWAYS loved making desserts. As a teen, I learned how to make New York Cheesecake from a gigantic American cookbook we had sitting on our bookshelf at home.
Now, mind you, this book is 100% from the 80s, which means the recipes and photos are 100% pure 80s charm as well. Think parsley on all the things. And not the flat-leaf kind, either.
Well, whatever the image situation might have been in the book, it certainly didn't keep me from making all the cheesecake, all of the time.
Far bigger problems in my cheesecake-making adventures were a) it's a little funny when a 15-year-old buys two pounds of cream cheese, a pound of butter and what felt like seven gallons of cream, b) ...there's one or two calories in all that butter, sugar, cream cheese and cream... and c) the fact that baking during summer isn't the most pleasant thing, so I was cheesecake-challenged for at least 5 months every year.
I had MAJOR cheesecake aversions while I was pregnant (thinking of it made me feel SO sick, ugh!), but slowly my love for it is coming back.
But because of a), b) and c) - I decided there had to be another way.
One that's a little healthier, since I have a 2 1/2-year-old dessert monster hanging out around here.
One that doesn't make a gigantic cake for just our little family, and one that's absolutely oven-free because SUMMER IS COMING.
Hear that, Jon Snow? Summer IS coming.
So, I created these Lemon Blueberry No Bake Cheesecakes, in an effort to make cheesecake happen again.
I LOVE blueberries. And I can prove it, ha! There's this Streusel Topped Blueberry French Toast Casserole, these Healthy Blueberry Lemon Muffins, this Oatmeal Cookie Blueberry Peach Cobbler... OK, I'll stop now.

So, bottom line, blueberries had to go in there. And did they ever, because that hint-of-honey sauce? It’s absolutely divine.
My favorite part with these cheesecakes though? Packing them into individual jars.
Because it makes them look incredibly cute.
It makes them PERFECT for Easter brunch, Mother's Day, summer picnics or any other situation where cute, portable mini desserts are appreciated.
So, any ordinary day in my opinion 😉
