Blueberries are a delicious, healthy ingredient to add to a plain cheesecake. They add tons of flavor, antioxidants, and vitamin C. This cheesecake is extremely easy and does not take long to prepare. This recipe uses a ready-made pie crust and this cuts down on time. The main blueberry season is June to August. However, using frozen blueberries makes this dessert a year round treat. After baking, this light and fluffy cheesecake is topped with a decadent white chocolate mousse layer. Yum!
