Ingredients for No-Bake Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake

For the Crust:

  • 2 cups crushed vanilla sandwich cookies (with icing) (approximately 20 cookies)
  • ¼ cup salted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Batter:

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy cream (33% fat)
  • ¼ cup instant lemon pudding mix (powder)
  • 1 pound fresh blueberries, washed and patted dry

How to Make No-Bake Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Step by Step Instructions

  1. Prepare the Pan: Begin by lightly greasing the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Make the Crust: In a medium bowl, combine the crushed vanilla sandwich cookies with melted butter. Mix until the texture is consistent. Press this mixture firmly into the bottom of your greased pan, creating a solid base. Chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  3. Create the Cheesecake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Using an electric handheld mixer on high speed, beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Gradually add the heavy cream and instant lemon pudding mix, continuing to beat. Start on a low speed to incorporate the ingredients, then increase to high speed, mixing until the batter is fluffy and well-whipped. You can choose to add a few blueberries to the mix (optional)
  4. Assemble the Cheesecake: Pour the creamy batter over the chilled crust, using a spatula to smooth the top evenly. Cover and refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, or overnight, which allows the flavors to meld and the texture to set to perfection.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Once set, you can choose to either top the entire cheesecake with fresh blueberries or decorate individual slices with the berries upon serving. This not only adds a burst of flavor but also a delightful texture to each bite. Serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
