Easy Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert
Here is an Easy Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert recipe that you will want to make time and again for two reasons; one it’s a no-bake, two, it tastes unbelievably delicious. The lovely blend of blueberry filling and creamy cheesecake flavors are so decadent and layered on top of a buttery Graham cracker crust. It’s a fabulous choice for a dessert recipe to make any time of the year as it uses simple ingredients from your pantry. Just because it says cheesecake, you don’t have to worry about the conventional methods such as prepping for a water bath or cleaning the mess there after. An uncomplicated recipe like this one will need just one bowl to mix up the ingredients before you can transfer it to the crust. This recipe requires being kept in the fridge for several hours to set it completely. It may be a good idea to make it the night before if you plan on serving this recipe to a large crowd. Cheesecake is also something that will gain its flavor as it ages in the fridge, so it always tastes better after a few days. Quick desserts recipes like this one not only save time but also are easy to serve for potluck or picnic.
If you’ve often wondered how to make a cheesecake that has smooth, lump-free texture, here is a good tip that will help you reach its success. Always keep in mind to bring the cream cheese to room temperature. This helps in blending the ingredients seamlessly and results in a smooth satin texture in cheesecakes. You don’t want your guests to eat a cheesecake that is lumpy. Nothing is as unpleasant as a mouthful of lumpy cheesecake that hasn’t been blended in properly with other ingredients. You can also add lemon zest or juice to the cheesecake to give it a twist of fruity flavor and aroma. For the crust, you can use any other alternatives like vanilla wafers, chocolate graham crackers. You can also try ginger snaps, lady fingers, shortbread, Oreos, Sandies cookies, or Sara Lee pound cake, yellow cake mix, Milk Arrowroots, soda crackers, etc., are all excellent options. To add a crunch to this cheesecake, you can add sprinkle lightly toasted pecans on top. This changes the character of the cheesecake and makes it fun to eat both creamy and nutty texture at the same time.
The blueberries add a bit of nutritional value to this recipe making it a healthier dessert to eat for kids and grownups. The nutrients in blueberries mainly come from its high dietary fiber and iron content. Blueberries are also a very high source of Vitamin B6 and C. They are low in sodium, free of cholesterol and fat which is another great reason to eat them more often or use them in baking dessert recipes. Easy dessert recipes that use real fruit are budget-friendly and fuss-free without having to use a complicated list of too many ingredients. The versatility of this recipe lies in the fact that you can use pretty much any fillings that you like. For instance, if you don’t have a blueberry filling readily available, you can go for a cherry filling or even raspberry filling.
