- 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 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 just before serving.

Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake FAQ
Can I make no bake lemon cheesecake in advance?
Yes! In fact, I recommend it since it needs several rounds of freezing to set.
Preparing it 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.
It 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.
Be sure to keep your lemon blueberry cheesecake covered with a layer of plastic wrap or foil for best results.
I don’t have a microwave – how else can I melt the chocolate?
Use a double boiler on your stove or create one with a medium saucepan and a glass bowl.
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.
