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!

Mini Mason JarsLemon, blueberry, and mini mason jars…my newest favorite combination!

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.

Graham Cracker Cheesecake CrustThe 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!

No Bake Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake in a JarThe fresh blueberry sauce is simply made from ripe fruit and a bit of raw sugar (you can substitute honey if you prefer), and it tastes like heaven on top of the creamy lemon cheesecake.

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

Instructions:

Blueberry Sauce:

  • 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.

Graham Crust:

  • 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.

Lemon Cheesecake:

  • 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.
