And the taste of this blueberry cheesecake?
Well I find it hard to describe, so I'll just say that it can only be described as "pure sweet heaven".
The simple blueberry jam covered cheesecake matches perfectly with the fresh blueberries.
Because of that delicious sweet combination that they together provide, there's no need to add any additional sweetness to the cheesecake.
I recommend serving the no bake cheesecake recipe as is.
Although not quite a completely healthy blueberry cheesecake, no additional cream or ice cream is required. It's just perfect on its own!
My other half and I love a cheesecake dessert or a similar pudding on a Sunday evening.
It's our weekly sweet treat and fits in perfectly with the 80/20 rule for eating.
Cheesecakes like this no bake blueberry cheesecake were always my most favourite childhood dessert and still are!
Whenever we had a BBQ at my parents I was always given the task (which I very happily accepted!) of putting together the cheesecake we were going to enjoy after our sausages and burgers.
We would BBQ most weekends, even if the weather wasn't great (this is Scotland after all!) and you would often find my Dad beside the BBQ, tongs in one hand and umbrella in the other!
He still does that but just for himself and my mum now. 🙂
As I mentioned this no-bake blueberry cheesecake is a delicious dessert to make and it's made from simple ingredients.
After publishing the recipe I had people asking me if they could not get blueberry jam how they could make their own blueberry pie filling that they could top the cream cheese layer with?
So now I've updated this great recipe below with how to make a blueberry topping.
Otherwise if you don't want to make the blueberry topping then just follow the original no bake blueberry version.
It's just a quick blitz in a food processor to make the crust. Then a whisking together of the cream cheese mixture ingredients (by hand or electric mixer).
Then chill for at least 4 hours and top with the blueberry topping. And enjoy!

See recipe card for quantities for the no bake blueberry cheesecake ingredients.
- Digestive Biscuits - folks in the U.S. use Graham Crackers if you can’t get digestive biscuits. You could also use Oreo biscuits to make a chocolate crust.
- Unsalted Butter - you can use salted butter but I prefer unsalted and it's healthier.
- Cream Cheese - use spreadable softened cream cheese which is at room temperature.
- Double Cream - folks in the U.S. use heavy cream.
- Lemon Juice - freshly squeezed is best but you can used bottled as well.
- Vanilla Extract - use a good quality one. You can use vanilla essence but it just isn't as good.
- Blueberry Jam - if you can't get blueberry jam use an alternative berry jam or make your own easy blueberry sauce topping by following the method below.
- Blueberries - fresh blueberries are best. You can substitute with frozen ones but make sure they are thawed out completely before you use them.
Tips For How To Make No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake
- Folks in the U.S. use Graham Crackers to make a Graham Cracker crust if you can’t get digestive biscuits.
- Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature. But your double cream is straight from the fridge prior to whisking.
- You can use full fat cream cheese and full fat double cream if you want. I use reduced fat as a personal preference to reduce the calories and to make the recipe as close to a healthy blueberry cheesecake as possible!
- Make sure your fridge is cold when you place the cheesecake in it to set. In order for this to be a no bake blueberry cheesecake no gelatin is used unlike many other cheesecakes. So for best results leave to set in the fridge overnight. Serve the cheesecake cold but don't let it sit about for too long or it'll start to soften!
- For the topping you'll find that if you carefully warm the blueberry jam a little in a small saucepan, it'll make it easier to spread over the top of the cheesecake but don't warm it too much!
- If you don't have the time or ingredients to make the blueberry topping you could make this into a cherry cheesecake instead by substituting with cherry pie filling or cherry jam instead.
- Do you need gelatin for this no bake dessert cheesecake? - No this no bake blueberry cheesecake recipe is a gelatin-free cheesecake recipe.
- How long does cheesecake take to set? - This no baked cheesecake needs to sit for 4 hours in the fridge. Possibly longer if you're using reduced fat ingredients. I do recommend setting it overnight in the fridge though.
- How long does blueberry cheesecake last? Any left-over slices (if there are any!) can easily be put into individual airtight containers in your freezer and frozen. Not only does that mean you'll have a supply of this lovely blueberry cheesecake for future, but that removes the temptation of eating the whole lot in one sitting!
- To defrost your frozen blueberry no bake cheesecake remove the container from your freezer to the fridge the day before you want to eat it.
- Can you use other berries instead? Yes. If you cannot get blueberries then substitute with fresh blackberries or raspberries and their associated jam.

This is the deep round cake tin with loose base that I use in the making of this cheesecake and many of my other cheesecakes too.
It's easy to push the base up slowly keeping the shape of the cheesecake with this cake tin. When you're removing it prior to serving.
I also find it easier to use with my no bake cheesecake recipes than cake tins that clip together at the side. Those I find are better for baked cheesecakes!

I'm a sucker for a good cheesecake, and I love that summer is here...because that means berry season is back! This cheesecake sounds delicious, Neil, and I could definitely go for a slice. We have a long weekend coming up here in the States, and I'm thinking this cheesecake would be a great addition to the picnic table. Great photos, my friend!
Enjoy your long weekend there David! We too have a long one this weekend (we're off the Monday 28th) and I've slices of this blueberry cheesecake still left in the freezer. I know they'll be making an appearance. Maybe after our BBQ that I mentioned I was doing in your post. Thanks for the compliments about my recipe pictures and I hope that you guys have an amazing long weekend too! 😀
I usually prefer more decadent cheesecake flavors (like caramel or chocolate), but a blueberry cheesecake is a good exception (well, a lemon one is too!) This one looks incredibly delicious, Neil!
Thanks Ben. I'm a big fan of those more decadent cheesecake flavours too. But I feel they're more comforting in winter and or at Christmas. I like fruit cheesecakes, like this blueberry one, or indeed as you mention a lemon one too!

My son absolutely loves cheesecake. He just saw me scrolling through these delicious pictures and wants to know whether we are having this cheesecake for dessert today. Now whats a mum to do ? It is a good thing that I have all the ingredients, except the fresh blueberries, I think that I will just use the jam.
Thank you for the delicious and easy recipe...you are definitely his hero today for posting this recipe 🙂
Just use the blueberry jam Ashika if you can't get fresh blueberries. The fresh blueberries really are just for decoration anyway!
I hope that your son enjoys this. Thanks for the 5* rating, that's made my weekend! 😀
Jeff the Chef
I love this kind of cheesecake. Nice going!
Nice and simple for lazy Sunday's like today, eh Jeff? Thanks! 😀
You might find this nuts but I have NEVER had cheesecake before. It's definitely something I wish I could have experienced back when I could eat ALL THE THINGS.
Oh dear GiGi, I wish I could do some sort of variation of a cheesecake with the things in it that you CAN eat. I'll need to get my thinking cap on for you! 🙂
Shashi at SavorySpin
Oh my goodness! This looks wonderful, Neil! And, I LOVE how easy you have made this! This no bake blueberry cheesecake after BBQ burgers or hot dogs would be so welcome! While I can handle most cheeses, am gonna have to sub that double cream for some coconut milk or something and give this cheesecake a try soon!
Hoping you and Lady Lynne are having a wonderful week!
Thank you Shashi. 😀
This is perfect for BBQ's and I'm happy that I've got some in the freezer still as it looks like we'll be having another BBQ this weekend if the weather continues the way it has been. Two BBQ's in a year for Lynne and I, that would be unheard of! 😆
Hope you can find a substitute for the double cream, if the coconut milk works let me know!
Hi! I was wondering if the the recipe does not require any sugar at all?
No the recipe does not require any sugar. If you read the post details about the recipe "The simple blueberry jam covered cheesecake matches perfectly with the fresh blueberries and because of that delicious sweet combination that they together provide, there’s no need to add any additional sweetness to the cheesecake.
