Frozen blueberry cheesecake balls recipe
It's fun to eat cheesecake like ice cream bites. In the peak of summer, they are such a delicious dessert or snack to refresh us.
Prep time: 50 minutes | Cook time: 5 minutes | Inactive time: 3 hours | Total time: 3 hours 55 minutes
- 1 cup cream cheese (like Philadelphia)
- 1/8 cup low-fat cream
- 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
- 1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/2 cup biscuit crumbs
- In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, low-fat cream and confectioner's sugar until the mixture is combined well. Freeze for 30 minutes, and while waiting, make the blueberry sauce.
- In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, combine the blueberries, granulated sugar and lemon juice. Cook for 3 minutes, then crush the berries with a fork. If using frozen blueberries, this part takes a few minutes longer.
- In a small bowl, quickly mix together the cornstarch and water until the mixture becomes smooth. Pour it into the saucepan with the blueberries. Mix until the sauce thickens, then set it aside to let it cool down.
- Using a piece of saran wrap, spoon some cream cheese into the middle, then gather all the sides of the wrap to shape the cream cheese into a ball. Open the saran wrap again, and insert some blueberry mixture in the center of the cheesecake ball. Close by gathering the sides again. Repeat until you finish all the ingredients.
- On a plate with the biscuit crumbs, roll the cheesecake balls until they are all covered. If they become too soft to handle, just put them back in the freezer to make them harder.
- Freeze the cheesecake balls for at least 3 hours or until they harden.
