HG's Blueberry Bliss Cheesecake Makeover
(no ratings)

PointsPlusŪ value 4*

HG Heads-Up! Be sure that the cream cheese, yogurt, egg whites, and lemon juice are at room temperature. This will help to prevent cracks in your cheesecake.

HG Tip! The topping may run down the edges of the cake once the springform is removed. To catch all of that deliciousness, place the pan on a larger plate before removing the springform.

Regular cheesecake is tempting. Add a delicious topping of blueberry goo, and it's irresistible! Luckily, thanks to some HG magic, there's no need to resist. Berry nice!
