Easy Blueberry “Cheesecake” Bites

Easy Blueberry "Cheesecake" Bites -- all you need are 4 ingredients to make this quick and easy dessert/snack | gimmesomeoven.com

I made you a new snackity snack!

And I hereby name them “cheesecake bites”.  Aren’t they cute?!?

As you might wisely infer from the name, these little guys taste just like sweet cheesecake.  But by contrast to a big ol’ slice of cheesecake, these little guys are much more reasonably portioned into little bite-sized treats.  They’re perfect for snacking, perfect for dessert-ing, perfect for entertaining, or perfect for any ol’ time the cheesecake craving hits.  And they’re no-bake, so no hot oven required.

And the best part??  All you need are 4 easy ingredients and about 1 minute to make one.

I kid you not.  :)

I actually was inspired to make these when craving my favorite Lighter Blueberry Cheesecake the other day.  I had all of the ingredients on hand — including fresh blueberries galore — but I didn’t feel like heating up the oven in the middle of August.

So instead, I decided to experiment with making an alternative using those cute little The Laughing Cow cheese wedges instead.  The Laughing Cow had actually reached out to me this summer to see if I would like to join in with their program to “reinvent snacking”, and this little treat sounded right up that alley.  I’m all in with their efforts to celebrate snacks that are creative, simple and delicious.  And I’d also add to that intentional.  I’m one of those people who can get in trouble with mindless snacking.  But when I’m intentional about it, and actually take a minute beforehand to plan out what I want to eat and then take the time to savor it, my snacking habit is all the more enjoyable.

And talk about enjoyable — this little “cheesecake bites” experiment turned out to be a delicious success!

And as I said, all you need are 4 simple ingredients.  (If you’re snacker at work, you can even keep these in your office fridge and desk drawer!)  You’ll need:

  • The Laughing Cow cheese wedges (I used Creamy Original Swiss)
  • graham crackers (I like the cinnamon ones)
  • fresh blueberries (or any fruit)
  • honey or agave

Just spread some of the cheese on a graham cracker.  (I used about 1/3 of a wedge per graham cracker.)

Then top each of them with some blueberries, and drizzle with honey.

Or more importantly, take a bite.  :)

The mild cheese combines with the honey to taste just like cheesecake filling.  And then when paired with the graham cracker “crust” and blueberry “topping”, I promise that they’re guaranteed to satisfy that craving.  My kind of snack for sure.

Easy Blueberry "Cheesecake" Bites

These Easy Blueberry "Cheesecake" Bites take less than a minute each to make, and are the perfect sweet snack or dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 12 individual graham cracker pieces (or 3 large graham crackers)
  • 4 wedges The Laughing Cow Creamy Original Swiss (or Creamy Light Swiss)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) honey or agave nectar

Directions:

Spread about 1/3 of a cheese wedge atop an individual graham cracker. Top with a few fresh blueberries, then drizzle with a teaspoon of honey. Enjoy immediately.

(The graham crackers will start to get a little soggy if they are not eaten within 10-15 minutes. So I recommend drizzling them with honey JUST before eating.)

If you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #gimmesomeoven. I'd love to see what you cook!

    Oh my gosh Laughing Cow has such a special place in my heart. When I first embarked on my weight loss journey I always had laughing cow for my afternoon snack. I lost a good 30 pounds eating it! Anyway that’s neither here nor there… but these cheesecake bites are definitely calling my name!!

    I l-o-v-e graham cracker snacks! They remind me of Sunday school snacks from way back when. Sometimes I get a craving for graham crackers topped with store-bought frosting, but I resist the temptation. Laughing Cow is a great alternative!

  23. Nathalie C. | Devoted Foodie — August 23, 2014 @ 9:39 pm (#)

    I grew up eating the laughing cow. Great flavors.

  24. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. — August 23, 2014 @ 11:51 pm (#)

    This is such a great idea!!

  25. Jenny @ The Peachy Pair — August 25, 2014 @ 1:30 pm (#)

    I eat Laughing Cow cheese almost everyday! Love the idea of using it for something sweet!

  26. Lauren — August 27, 2014 @ 11:37 pm (#)

    These are so cute! My daughter would love these as a little after school snack! So quick and easy to put together. Beautiful photos, by the way. :)

    These are adorable! Cheesecake is my favorite food but I definitely could use a slimmer version for summer.

  28. Thea @ Baking Magique — August 29, 2014 @ 4:17 am (#)

    Looks so good! Will defininitly try these!

  29. Mary hall — August 29, 2014 @ 7:52 am (#)

    I just wanted to say that these are awesome. First, they’re super simple. Second, they’re amazingly quick. Third, they are AWESOMELY DELICIOUS! I used blackberry jam/syrup in place of the blueberries and gluten-free graham crackers and they really hit the (sweet) spot. Cool idea!

  30. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche — August 31, 2014 @ 3:33 am (#)

    This is such a good idea!! Any sort of healthy cheesecake is automatically amazing in my eyes :) so pretty too!
