For the Filling:

  • Flour: Can help prevent the cheesecake from cracking, ensuring a perfect presentation.
  • Vanilla Frosting: Adds another layer of flavor and sweetness, complementing the tangy blueberries and cream cheese.
  • Neon Blue Food Coloring Gel: Gives the cheesecake a vibrant, eye-catching color that’s sure to impress, without altering the flavor.

How to Make Instant Pot Vanilla Blueberry Cheesecake

To begin with this recipe, you will start with the crust.

Instant Pot Blueberry Cheesecake

Cheesecake Crust

Step 1 Blend the graham crackers. Blend the graham crackers in a blender until they’re crumbs. Add the sugar and mix.

Step 2 Melt the butter in the microwave. Then, add it to the graham cracker crumbs, and mix well to coat.

Step 3 Make your crust. Press the graham cracker crumbs into a 7 inch Spring-form pan, or a 6 inch Instant Pot cake pan, until they’re evenly pressed down. 

Cheesecake Filling

Step 1 Blend ingredients. In a high powered blender, add the cream cheese, OUI yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and eggs, and blend on high until all ingredients are well mixed.

Step 2: Mix cream and pudding. In a separate bowl, mix the heavy cream and Instant pudding until smooth. Add the pudding mix to the blender, and blend well.

Step 3: Prepare blueberries. Wash the blueberries under cold water, and dry with a paper towel. Place them in a small dish, and sprinkle the flour over the blueberries, tossing them gently with a spoon to coat.

Step 4: Pour the cheesecake mixture into the pan, on top of the crust. Place the blueberries in the center of the cheesecake batter, and gently fold into the batter, being careful not to disturb the crust.

Step 5: Prepare the pan and Instant Pot. Wrap the bottom of the pan in foil. Place the Trivet in the Instant Pot, and place 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of the Pot. Place the Cheesecake pan on top of the Trivet. (if you have a lifter you can use that for the pan – if not, use a foil sling – see notes)

Step 6: Cook your cheesecake. Place the lid on the Instant Pot until it beeps and locks. Make sure the pressure valve is set to SEALING, and set the time to 45 minutes.

Step 7: Do a natural release. When the Instant Pot is done cooking, beeps and goes to off, do not release the pressure, and  DO NOT REMOVE THE LID. Leave the cheesecake in the Instant Pot for 30 minutes, then make sure all the pressure has been released by turning the pressure valve to VENTING.

Step 8: Cool the cheesecake. Remove the cheesecake pan from the Instant Pot, and place on a wire rack to completely cool. The cheesecake may be a little jiggly in the center, but it will set up in the refrigerator.

Step 9: Put cheesecake in the refrigerator. When the cheesecake is cool, place a piece of parchment paper over the top of the pan, and then foil over the Parchment paper. Place the cheesecake in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours, or overnight for best results. The longer you can leave the cheesecake chilling in the refrigerator, the better. 

What To Serve With This Recipe?

FAQ’s

How to Decorate Your Cheesecake?

Before serving, mix the can of frosting with Neon blue food coloring gel, until you have a bright blue colored frosting. Place the frosting in a pastry bag with a large star tip. Pipe large dollops of frosting around the edge of the cheesecake, and place a blue berry on top of each dollop. Place a mixture of blue. purple, white, or other colors, sprinkles in the center of the cheesecake – see photo. Cut the cheesecake in 2 inch slices, and serve with a few blueberries on the side. Enjoy!

How to Make a Foil Sling?

To make a foil sling for the cheesecake, tear off a large piece of foil – about 24 inches long, and fold it in half again, and again until you end up with a long piece of thick foil, about 2 or 3 inches wide. Place the foil under the pan, before you place the pan on the trivet in the Instant Pot. Make sure to keep the foil away from the cheesecake batter – you can fold it down so it stays put during cooking, away from the batter. Unfold the strip or sling of foil, and use it to lift the cheesecake from the Instant Pot.
