The fun begins with a graham cracker crust. The original blueberry cheesecake recipe my family used called for baking the graham cracker crust, but I’ve made this recipe even simpler and I love it this way.

The graham cracker crust is topped with an irresistible no-bake cheesecake filling before being smothered with saucy blueberries.

While cherry might be the most popular cheesecake topping, blueberry was the cheesecake topping that my family liked the best growing up. No one can resist my mom’s homemade blueberry pie filling.

Side note – if you love blueberry desserts as much as our family does, don’t miss these Blueberry Pie Bars or Blueberry Crunch!

I’ve tweaked the classic recipe a bit, by adding a bit more butter to the crust so we can skip the baking step and the crust will still hold together.

However, if you prefer a baked crust, go ahead and bake it for 10 mins at 325 F.

Because of the unbaked crust, you will also need to make sure that the cheesecake chills for at least 6 hours in the fridge. If you skip or shorten that step, there’s a risk that the crust won’t hold together.

Check out this post for how to make a perfect no bake graham cracker crust. And one last tip on the crust, be sure to finely crush the graham crackers.

I recommend using a food processor or blender if at all possible. The finer the crumbs are, the better the crust will hold together.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Dessert

There’s something just a little magical about cream cheese when you lightly sweeten it and whip it into fluffy awesomeness. Topped with a fruit filling, it is transformed into airy no-bake cheesecakes that are perfect for sharing all summer long.

If you love the combination of blueberries and cream cheese as much as we do, you’ll want to try this Blueberry Cheesecake Oatmeal too. And these Cream Cheese Danishes are super easy to make with puff pastry, but they taste so much fancier than the 5 or 10 minute dessert that they are!

No Bake Blueberry Dessert

This blueberry cheesecake is one of our favorite no-bake desserts, but there are so many more to choose from for easy summertime desserts.

Try these No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies. They are the perfect treat when a late-night craving hits. They’re quick and easy to make and satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.

The Nutella Cheesecake Pie with an Oreo crust is a Nutella lover’s dream. This is also the easiest Nutella cheesecake ever because it is completely no-bake and requires just a handful of ingredients!

What do you get when you combine peanut butter, chocolate, pretzels, or Rice Krispies in a simple no-bake dessert recipe? You get one happy family of taste testers.

I’ve shared my family’s Peanut Butter Balls (aka Buckeyes) recipe here before (and it’s one of my most popular recipes), but when you add pretzels or rice krispies to the mix? Things just get more delicious.

      I would try homemade whipped cream first. 1 and 1/2 cups of heavy cream equals 1 (8 oz) tub of cool whip. Just whip it up with 2-4 tablespoons of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.

    I just made this for my family and everyone says it is their new favorite dessert! This is excellent! My oven is broken and we have 8 pounds of just-picked blueberries, so this was absolutely perfect. Great on a day when it was 100 degrees.

    Thanks for the recipe. Have made this several times, and it’s been loved by all my friends. My husband has specifically requested this for his birthday three years in a row.

    My modifications: I increase the cream-cheese mixture to about 1.5 times the prescribed amount. Also, I often make mini-cheesecakes in 4-inch springform pans, they look super cute. Three of the mini-cheesecakes correspond to about a third of the given recipe amounts.

      It’s a personal preference. Most can be made either way, Wendy. An unbaked crust is a little softer and a baked one will be more crisp.

    Love this dessert and have had and made several times. In a big pinch, grab the new Philadelphia No Bake Cheesecake in the 16 oz tub in store. Put on crust, smooth out, add the blueberry pie filling and chill. So many compliments and the fastest prep time yet. Tastes just as amazing.

    Was easy to make and cheese cake was creamy and light delicious. I don’t care for graham crackers so I used vanilla wafers instead. I will make it again.

    It’s never ever as good if you don’t bake the crust. I should have known this. It doesn’t matter how fine the crumbs are. Also it doesn’t come out of the pan well and looks bad on the plate.

    I’ve been making a variation of this for years. I use a crust made with flour, butter and pecans. Mix 8 oz of softened cream cheese, 1/2 sugar and an 8 oz bowl of cool whip for the filling and top with blueberry pie filling. It also works well with fresh strawberries mixed with strawberry glaze for the topping. Very quick, simple and delicious!

    This was fantastic, so easy to make and it turned out perfect. the hardest part was waiting 6 hours.

    • Mary says

      I know that feeling; waiting is difficult when there’s a dessert like this one nearby. I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the blueberry recipes on the site.

    This used to be my families staple for showers. Everyone loves it. I like it with cherry pie filling or blueberry filling.
