Blueberry Cheesecake Jars

This recipe is super-easy and delicious and doesn’t have the “guilt” attached to it that most cheesecakes do, since it is lower in sugar and calories. I used coconut oil in this recipe, but it’s also equally delicious with a nice unsalted butter.

Serves: 4



  • 4 digestive biscuits
  • ½ tbsp organic coconut oil, melted
  • 175g cream cheese
  • 175g Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp blueberry jam (no added sugar)
  • 225g blueberries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  1. To make cheesecake base, process digestive biscuits in food processor until fine crumbs form. Add coconut oil and mix thoroughly until crumbs are completely coated. Place crumb mix in base of 4 jam jars and press down firmly to create even layer. Chill in fridge for 1 hr to set firmly.
  2. Place cream cheese, yoghurt and vanilla essence in bowl, and beat with mixer until smooth and creamy. Fold in blueberry jam and a handful of blueberries until just combined.
  3. Spoon mixture on top of biscuit base and top with fresh blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  4. Leave in fridge to chill before serving.
