An easy yet delicious weekend dessert..

On my goal list for June is the point “try a new recipe”, which I can mark as checked for sure. I tried 5 or 6 new recipes actually, the last one being this awesome little dessert I want to show you today!

What this is, you ask? Well, this, my friends, officially is a “no bake blueberry cheesecake in a jar”. To be clear, it’s my slightly alteredĀ  version of this awesome recipe from “Life, Love and Sugar” (an amazing food blog I came across recently).

The original recipe uses key limes as the only “fruit” which I knew was impossible for me. First because I couldn’t get any key limes *lol* and second because I wanted to incorporate blueberries :) Furthermore, I didn’t have any vanilla at home and we don’t use readymade whip in this house ;)

So this is my ingredient list (for 2 jars):

  • 1/2 package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of cream
  • lemon juice to taste
  • sugar to taste
  • blueberries
  • about 12 whole grain shortbreads
  • a tablespoon of butter

I melted the butter, combined it with the crushed shortbreads and set it aside.

Then I mixed the cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice together (just try how much sugar and lemon juice you like). Next, I had to whip the cream ;) before gently folding it in the mix, too.

I only washed the blueberries and already was ready to assemble everything! ;)

So I alternately took quaters of first the shortbread mixture, then of the cheesecake mixture and lastly the berries and placed it into the jars, doing two rounds on each one (so 6 layers per jar).

Only thing left was to let it rest in the fridge for a few hours…

In the evening we finally enjoyed these little jars of happiness :) Totally loved it, but I think I’m going to use other berries next time, or maybe even little shreds of apricots! <3

So if you’re ever in need of an easy and fast dessert, try out this one! :D

Have a lovely evening everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow with another layout!
