How to Make Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

Learning how to make a blueberry cheesecake recipe was never a priority for me. It is one that I never got hooked on until I moved to Florida along with orange, key lime and lemon cheesecakes. This fruit was not available to me as a young cook in Ohio. We did not grow them and I do not remember anyone in our area that did. When I finally started eating this valuable berry, I couldn’t believe that I went all those years without them.


It seems that now blueberries are grown in almost every state, including Ohio; and in many other countries. I found this fruit valuable when I learned how to make blueberry cheesecake recipes as well as making delicious cakes, muffins, pies and pancakes; they also make wonderful jam.


When the original colonies were settled the Northeastern Native Americans were already gathering blueberries from the forest. They believed this “star berry fruit” was sent by the Great Spirit to prevent hunger. Not only did the Natives use them to eat for hunger but they believed they had medicinal qualities for many illnesses. They taught the Pilgrims how to collect and preserve the berries to help them survive the long winters; I am sure long before they learned how to make blueberry cheesecake recipes.


Today’s research shows that the Native inhabitants were right all along. This pretty little blueberry ranks the highest of all fruit with antioxidants. They are linked to lowering cholesterol levels, improving the heart health and helping with the fight of certain cancers. One cup of this low calorie fruit berry offers fourteen percent of the recommended daily dose of fiber along with one fourth of the daily vitamin C. If all these health benefits of blueberries do not inspire you to get them in your diet, just think about the taste of delicious creamy blueberry cheesecake recipe.
