Our Blueberry Icebox Cheesecake Recipe Is a Perfect Sweet Treat in the Summer Heat

This sweet treat is packed with fresh berry-licious flavor and is a no-bake delight

Whether you’re hosting a gathering during the warmer months or just want something fruity and sweet to finish a meal, this refreshing blueberry icebox cheesecake recipe is truly a slice of heaven. Crusted with buttery graham crackers and swirled with sweet simmered blueberries to create a beautiful purple hued filling, we even topped it with fresh blueberries for a double whammy. So luscious and dreamy, no one will guess this cool, creamy marvel is such a breeze to whip up. If you’ve given it a try, comment below to let us know! 

Our graham cracker crust deliciously complements the cheesecake’s creamy fruit filling. And for the best texture, it’s key to pack the crumbs to create a smooth texture. We found that a straight-sided measuring cup is the perfect tool for the job. To do: Spread the crumbs over the bottom of the pan, then press them with the bottom of the cup – its shape lets you pack the mixture right up to the edge of the pan.
