How to choose the freshest Blueberries when shopping

When shopping for blueberries, here are a few helpful tips, that can help you choose the best Blueberries there are.

If you have a local farmers market or blueberry farm near you, by all means, make that your first stop. You are almost always guaranteed to get the best blueberries from your local farmer and it is always good to support your local community.

I have access to a local blueberry farm and there is no comparison to a store-bought blueberry. The farm-grown blueberries are sweeter and definitely more flavourful.

When in your local supermarket or grocery store use the following checklist, when looking for the best blueberries.

COLOUR: Look for blueberries that are a deep blue colour. Avoid any that have white soft spots or green tinges. T(he white chalky appearance is natural)

SKIN: Look for blueberries that have smooth skin and that are blemish-free. Wrinkles on the skin mean that the berries are old and either drying out or will turn mouldy.

The waxy, cloudy coating on the blueberry is called Bloom and it is 100 percent natural. It is actually a naturally occurring protective layer on the berry. The more the berries are handled the more the bloom is removed, but the bloom is a good sign of freshness.

If you are putting a few berries on top of your cheesecake (for presentation purposes, just polish the berry with a clean towel, after washing. The deep blue colour of the blueberry will be revealed.

SIZE: The size of the blueberry doesn’t mean a whole lot, but typically, if the berries are tiny or small, they will be a little bitter. A nice plump blueberry is what I usually look for.

Making the Crust

Using the Almond crust recipe is a big factor in reducing the carbs in all of our cheesecake recipes. It is super easy to make. We always use a pastry blender, when mixing our crust. I find that it makes the perfect crumble and mixing goes pretty quickly.

Preheat your oven to 350 °F *( 175°C)a small mixing bowl combine the almond flour, melted butter and the sweetener, and blend until you have a crumble. Pour the mixture into your springform pan and spread it evenly across the bottom of the pan. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 10 minutes.

Set aside and let cool while you work on the result of the recipe.

Making the cheesecake filling

There are a couple of tips that will ensure that your batter is smooth and mixing is seamless.

Make sure that the cream cheese is soft, at room temperature.

I find using a stand mixer works best, but you can use a handheld mixer as well. Add the liquid sweetener into the cream cheese and mix, until smooth. Be sure and scrape down the sides of the bowls a couple of times during mixing, to make sure you get everything well combined.

I use liquid Stevia, but if you have a favourite sweetener, feel free to swap it out.

Mix in a small amount (specified in the recipe) of cool whip or your whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and continue mixing with the mixer.

You should notice the mixture getting softer (not runny). This is the ideal time to fold in the remaining whipped topping (cool whip)

I always use a silicone spatula and gently fold in the whipped topping. Don’t use an electric stand or handheld mixer for this step. Folding will help keep the air in the filling mixture, making it nice and fluffy.

The last additive to the filling will be the blueberry sauce. Make certain that the sauce is completely cooled. Adding hot or warm sauce can make the whipped topping turn runny.

If you want your cheesecake to have a swirl appearance, gently fold in the sauce until you have the desired appearance. For fewer swirls and more of a blue appearance, keep gently folding over.

Once you have achieved the desired colour, pour the filling batter into the springform pan, over the cooled crust. Smooth the top of the cheesecake with a clean silicone spatula or cake smoother.

Making the Blueberry Sauce

This homemade blueberry sauce, that we add to this recipe can also be used as a stand-alone sauce. It of perfect over ice cream, on pancakes or even mixed into yogurt.

For the sauce you need

In a small saucepan, add the syrup and the blueberries and bring to a simmer. Using a potato masher, crush the blueberries. Add the package of unflavored gelatin and whisk it in until it is mixed well, and there are no lumps of gelatin. Let cool.

Plating your cheesecake

Whenever I am serving or plating desserts, I like to serve them on a large white plate (or appropriate colour for the dessert). I frequently used a chocolate drizzler or food syringe to decorate the plate before placing the cheesecake on top of the plate.

Using the Pampered Chef Drizzler

In the image above, I am using the pampered chef drizzled with Walden farms Blueberry Syrup. Simply put some syrup into a small cup and use the drizzle like a syringe. Easy Peasy!

My pampered chef drizzler is a handy little kitchen tool that adds just the right touch of class when plating your desserts, especially cheesecake.

How to store our Sugar-Free Blueberry Cheesecake

Storing in a Refrigerator

This cheesecake stores well for approximately 3 to 4 days. To store our cheesecake, cover with plastic wrap or use an air-tight container and refrigerate.

Freezing this Cheesecake

This cheesecake recipe can be frozen. When freezing, wrap with plastic wrap and ensure there is no air getting onto the cake surface.

Be advised that this sugar-free blueberry cheesecake recipe is best served after it has been chilled. Freezing can add moisture to the cheesecake, especially when thawing.

You can also freeze individual slices. Follow the same directions, by making sure that each piece is covered in plastic wrap.

Freeze the sauce separately and thaw and top with sauce.

Using Frozen Blueberries in this recipe

I was asked by a friend if frozen blueberries could be used in this recipe. the answer is an absolute yes. Just make sure that they have been thawed completely and drain off any liquid or moisture from them before adding them to the sauce.

No Springform pan?

If you don’t have a springform pan or are using your springform pan on another dessert, you can also make this recipe into squares. Instead of making the crust in a springform pan, use an 8-inch square baking dish. Press the crust onto the bottom and bake, as directed and then follow the filling and sauce instructions.

Chill for 2 hours before serving.

A note about the Springform pan size

The nutritional value listed below is based on 12 pieces in a 9-inch springform pan. You can easily use a different size of the pan if desired. Keep in mind that the nutritional value will be different. For a smaller springform pan, such as a 6-inch, you will get a nice tall cheesecake, but of course less [ieces.
