[RECIPE] Ombre Blueberry Cheesecake with Frozen BC Blueberries

Valentine’s Day is soon arriving. For the past few years, I think cooking at home for my love one is better than eating out at a fancy restaurant. It is simpler and more meaningful. This year, I want to share a simple recipe that you can easily make it for your Valentine’s Day – Ombre Blueberry Cheesecake.

The only thing that needs to mindful of is this requires overnight to set, as it is a no-bake cheesecake. And instead of fresh blueberries, which are not in season at this time, I chose BC Frozen Blueberries that can be brought in any grocery stores. I was surprised to see how plum and juicy they are.
