Easy No Bake Dessert
When you want an easy dessert that everyone will love, try my easy no bake blueberry almond cheesecake.
The recipe is simple, but each bite is full of flavor.
I often choose no bake desserts, when the Summer sun is hot.
My kitchen doesn’t need any extra heat from a hot oven, so a no bake dessert is a better choice.
Of course, the recipe can be enjoyed any time of the year.
This is also great to make for holidays or parties, when your oven is going to be full of other dishes.
It can also make the last minutes before guests arrive less stressful, since you can make it the night before your party.
If you have guests who follow a gluten free diet, this is an easy recipe that will work for them.
The only ingredient you’ll need to be careful about is the graham crackers in the crust.
I’ve tried several brands of gluten free graham crackers that have all been good.
Your gluten loving guests will be just as satisfied without gluten in this dessert.
The fresh blueberries and almond slices on top look great, but they also add that extra something special to the dessert.
This whole cheesecake looks pretty on a buffet table as is, but your guests will also ooh and ahh at the sight of their own perfect slice.
