Servings 9 bars
- 12 ounces cream cheese full fat cream cheese (or 360g)
- ⅔ cup Swerve confectioners (or 106g)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
Place all the dry base ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the melted butter and mix to form a flakey crumb.
Line a 8 x 8 inch baking pan with greaseproof paper.
Press the base mix into the bottom and smooth with the back of a spoon to get neat edges.
In a clean mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, Swerve, lemon juice, zest and salt. Mix with an electric mixer to combine. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream until thick (but don’t over whisk or it gets super stiff, you want it just under when it splits).
Fold the cream through the cream cheese with a spatula to combine.
In a small saucepan, add the frozen berries,Swerve and water. (Depending on how icy your blueberries are will depend on the amount of water. Start with ½ tablespoon and add more if needed. The blueberries will release water as they cook.)Simmer on a medium heat for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens and you can squash some of the blueberries with the back of a spatula. Turn off heat, add the xanthan and allow to fully cool to thicken.
Spoon the cheesecake filling on top of the base and smooth the top with a silicone spatula. Add dollops of cooled blueberries and swirl with a toothpick or the tip of a sharp knife.
Place in the fridge to fully set, about 8 hours, or overnight. About an hour before serving place into the freezer to firm up and to make slicing easier. Slice into 9 bars with a sharp knife.
