These quick and easy no-bake lemon blueberry cheesecakes are made perfectly portable in tiny glass mason jars – perfect for your next picnic or outdoor event!
The weather is warm, and picnic season is upon us! Picnic foods are some of my favorite foods, because I love the idea of making a meal fun and portable. I whipped up these no-bake lemon blueberry cheesecakes in about 10 minutes, and they are seriously one of my favorite desserts that I have EVER baked, er, NO-baked!
To make my cheesecakes portable and picnic ready, I no-baked them in these cute quilted 4 oz. mason jars. They’re the perfect pre-portioned size for a single-serving dessert. Plus, they’re totally adorable.
The crust can be made with graham crackers if that’s what you happen to have on hand, but I prefer to use my favorite Honey Snack Grahams from Horizon Organic. It gives the dessert a whole new layer of flavor that can’t be beat!
What You'll Need:
For the Blueberry Sauce:
- 1 cup Fresh Blueberries
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 2 Tbsp. Water
For the Honey Graham Crust:
- 1 1/4 cup of Horizon Organic Honey Snack Grahams, finely crushed
- 3 Tbsp. Butter, melted
- 3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
For the Lemon Cheesecake:
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese
- 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
- In a small saucepan, gently simmer blueberries, water, and sugar for 15-20 minutes or until blueberries have softened and sauce has thickened slightly. Set aside and allow to cool.
- In a bowl, mix together the graham crumbs along with the melted butter and brown sugar. Spoon 1/8 of the mixture into each of the mason jars, pressing down to firmly pack the mixture into crust.
- Use a mixer to beat together cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice.
- In a cold bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream (this is my favorite whipped cream recipe!)
- Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
- Top the graham crust with a layer of lemon cheesecake mixture and a layer of blueberry topping. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour before serving.
Adorably portable (how cute are those little quilted mason jars?), easy-to-make (you don’t even have to bake it!), and perfect for your next picnic! These lemon blueberry cheesecake jars are seriously my new favorite dessert!
