You Are Going to Love This Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

Cheesecake is a wonderful dessert for so many reasons. It has a light, smooth texture, a rich creamy taste, and maybe best of all, you can play around with recipes to make a variety that best suits your palette. There are several things you can add to cheesecake to make it taste delicious, but blueberries are definitely a favorite. There is something about their sweet flavor that makes them the perfect complement for this delectable dessert.

While we might not think much about health when we are eating cheesecake, blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits around. They are full of antioxidants that are great for your skin and can protect your body against disease. They also may improve brain health, lower cholesterol and reduce muscle damage after strenuous exercise.

If you really want to change things up to make your blueberry cheesecake recipe healthier, consider eliminating the crust or replacing it with digestive biscuits. You can also use lower-fat cream cheese and use sugar substitutes rather than natural sugar.

But for those of us who want our desserts to be anything but low in fat, there are plenty of other variations you can make on the blueberry cheesecake. You can add other fruits, like strawberries and raspberries, or crush your blueberries into a jam to make a blueberry swirl variety.

Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 7 oz. (1 jar) marshmallow creme
  • 2 cups (1 lb.) blueberries, frozen or fresh, plus additional for garnish, if desired
  • 8 oz. tub of frozen whipped topping, thawed, plus additional for garnish, if desired


1. Combine vanilla wafer crumbs and butter, and press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

2. Beat cream cheese on medium speed. Set aside.

3. Soften gelatin in water, and stir over low heat until dissolved. Gradually add the gelatin to the cream cheese, mixing at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended.

4. Beat in lemon juice and grated lemon peel.

5. Add the marshmallow creme, and mix well.

6. Fold in whipped topping.

7. Puree the blueberries then fold them into the cream cheese mixture. Chill until firm.

8. If desired, spread a layer of whipped topping on top of cheesecake and sprinkle with fresh blueberries before serving.

While our recipe is pretty basic, it does include lemon juice and a lemon peel that gives it a slightly tangy flavor while the whipped cream topping and marshmallow cream make it light, fluffy, and sweet. It combines the sweet taste of blueberries with rich cheesecake producing a texture that makes every bite melt in your mouth. You can make your cheesecake into pastries or bars or even add chocolate to please the chocolate lovers in your family.
