White Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe
I used to wonder if there was anything better than white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, but I have found its competitor! White chocolate blueberry cheesecake.
I’ve made the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for years because it was my favorite so I just didn’t have the desire to try anything else. But last week I decided it was time to give another berry a chance.
This is the second time I have made this white chocolate cheesecake and I am in love! The blueberry, cream cheese, and white chocolate mixture is divine!
And the hint of lemon complements the blueberry so well, and it brings out its outstanding natural flavor. This blueberry cheesecake is so simple to make, too!
You start with a pre-made crust, so it doesn’t get much easier. Just be sure to plan in advance because this cheesecake needs six hours to chill in the refrigerator to set. Six long hours of patiently waiting to eat this luxurious mouthwatering homemade cheesecake.

Can You Freeze Cheesecake?

When you’re ready to eat the frozen cheesecake, place it in your fridge to thaw (give it at least a day to thaw completely).

Tips for the Best Cheesecake
- You’ll have leftover blueberry sauce — use it as a topping for the white chocolate cheesecake!
- The cream cheese should be softened to room temperature before you whip it with the sugar.
- The cheesecake won’t seem fully set when you take it out of the oven, but that’s what you want. It should have a slight jiggle when you take it out of the oven.
