Tips for Making No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake
- Don’t use frozen berries! Stick with clean, dry, fresh berries for this lemon blueberry cheesecake recipe.
Frozen berries will bleed color into the batter and may release liquid that will affect the consistency.
- Smooth out the filling. Use a sturdy spatula to create even layers and press out any pockets of air that may occur when pouring in the mixtures.
- Create brighter colors. If you really want the middle layer of your lemon blueberry cheesecake to pop, add a little bit of yellow gel food coloring with the lemon jello powder.
- Add a garnish. Swirls of whipped cream and a few sprigs of mint or basil will create a simple but stunning presentation.
I recommend adding these to the lemon jello cheesecake just before serving.
Storing and Make Ahead Instructions
Preparing this lemon blueberry cheesecake in the morning will guarantee it’s ready after dinner, but it wouldn’t hurt to put it together a day or two ahead of time.
Follow the recipe as directed, through every round of freezing, then cover with a layer of plastic wrap. If freezing, add a layer of foil as well.
No bake blueberry cheesecake will stay fresh for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer, though you may need to thaw it a bit before slicing.
Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe FAQ
First, make sure the dessert is fully set and chilled. If any part is still soft, it could crack or collapse.
Use a large chef’s knife for the best results. Run the knife under hot water for about 20 seconds, then dry with a clean kitchen towel.
The metal will retain the heat, allowing it to glide cleanly through your no bake lemon blueberry cheesecake. Wipe the knife clean between each slice as well!
Use a double boiler on your stove or create one with a medium saucepan and a glass bowl — either method works with melting chocolate and almond bark.
To make your own, add about an inch of water to the pan and bring it to a simmer.
Place the bowl over the pan to create a seal, leaving space between the water and the bottom. Once the chocolate starts to soften, stir consistently until smooth and remove from the heat immediately.
Avoid getting any condensation in the chocolate, or it will become hard and crumbly. If that happens, you’ll need to start over with a fresh batch.
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
