These no-bake blueberry cheesecakes are miniature in size, low in saturated fat, and high in calcium, protein, and all of the vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber that blueberries provide. And since they have only a few simple ingredients, they’re a snap to prepare. Nonfat cream cheese whips up with nonfat Greek yogurt, unrefined sweetener, and lemon juice to get that tangy, sweet, creamy “I’m in love with cheesecake” flavor and texture.
Making your cheesecakes in individual serving sizes is great for portion control, and allows you to modify the recipe to suit individual tastes. For instance, if serving kids who are picky about texture, cheesecakes can be served without the nuts. They will still be getting all of the health benefits of berries and yogurt in each glass. The adults might prefer the nut and date mixture for some added crunch.
Skinny Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes can be wrapped and made ahead of time for an easy dessert. We would not recommend freezing these cheesecakes, as creamy dairy in no-bake cheesecakes can lose its consistency and separate during thawing.
