Crunchy crust made of toasted almonds and cookies, the combination of cream cheese and white chocolate with a layer of blueberries cream make this cheesecake a real summer treat! This no-bake blueberry cheesecake is so easy to prepare and you don’t even need to turn your oven for it!
I don’t know about you, but when summer temperatures start to increase above 35°C, my brain turns to chewing gum (metaphorically speaking).
Goes to standby.
Or sails to the Caribbean to drink rum with Jack Sparrow. Dances hula dance somewhere under the palms trees in Hawaii.
It just refuses to cooperate.
That’s why I’m looking for a bit more practical and faster solutions for sweet and savory meals that won’t leave me standing by my stove full of sweat and misery.
Since the blueberry season has started here, I decided to celebrate it with this no-bake blueberry cheesecake. While it still has been functioning in its full power, my brain came up with a cake in which we’ll combine almonds, white chocolate, and blueberries. And I totally fell in love once I took the first bite!
I previously toasted the almonds in a dry pan to get a more pronounced flavor and then added them to the crust together with cookies and butter.
Regarding white filling, I decided to combine cream cheese with sour cream and white chocolate which gave this no-bake cheesecake structure and firmness. Adding cremfix was an additional step that may not be necessary, depending on type of your cream cheese you’ll use, but I just wanted to ensure the filling will stay firm enough while being sliced.
Now, I am aware that maybe not all of you can buy this product under the same name in your countries so I researched this topic. This product is just a whipped cream stabilizer. It can be found under different names, depending on the producer, but you should be able to find it at your local supermarket.
The blueberry filling turned out thinner because of the blueberry juice, so I stabilized it with the gelatin. I know some people don’t like desserts with gelatin in it, but the purple filling really needed something to firm it up so this no-bake blueberry cheesecake can be cut into slices. The texture turned out just right the way I like it so I hope you will like it too!
Instead of gelatin, you could probably use agar-agar, but since I didn’t have the opportunity to work with this vegetarian gelatin substitute, I cannot tell you how and in what amount to use, sorry! If you would like me to make the version of this cheesecake with agar-agar, just let me know and I’ll do it for you guys!
When we talk about decoration, I wanted something that would look nice and eye-capturing so that any of us can make it. I simply used some fresh blueberries and wild strawberries, Raffaello balls, and tiny pieces of white chocolate and I was really happy with how it turned out!
Photographing this blueberry cheesecake at 39°C was not the smartest choice, so I didn’t get very neat slices, but hey! It’s summer, it was so luscious and creamy and we ate it all!
I definitely recommend that you chill it well and keep it in the fridge until ready to be sliced and served to your guests. Before you start preparing this recipe, read through it carefully, pay special attention to the notes below the recipe and ask me if you have any questions at all!
