Wow, blueberry swirl cheesecake!
I got some fantastic looking blueberries at the farmer's market this weekend and I wasn't sure what to do with them. They kept staring at me every time I opened the refrigerator.
Since I have a fabulous cheesecake recipe, I thought why not try something different and work on a blueberry puree that I could swirl into the cheesecake?
That's exactly what I did and this recipe is what I came up with. This turned out to be a great idea and I made the most beautiful cheesecake I have made yet. Tasted pretty darn good too according to my dairy-able husband and our neighbors who reaped the benefits of my recipe testing!
I may experiment with this some more, but I think this variation is good enough to release for your culinary experimentation. I think the blueberry sauce could be done with any kind of fruit or berry. You could also use peanut butter, caramel, or chocolate as your swirl!
I think this blueberry swirl cheesecake would make for a wonderful dessert to take to a summer get together or a special occasion. It's fruity and refreshing, especially if you serve it super cold or just slightly frozen!
Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think. I hope it comes out as delicious for you as it did for me!
