It’s SO cool and creamy, and it’s absolutely packed with juicy fresh blackberries – if you’re a fan of blackberries even a little bit, you’re going to LOVE this delicious cheesecake! This No Bake Blackberry Cheesecake recipe contains a secret ingredient that helps no bake cheesecakes set – lemon juice! The acid in the lemon reacts with the proteins in the milk, causing it to curdle and become thick. In no bake cheesecakes containing dairy cream cheese this little scientific fact works to our advantage, helping the cheesecake to become thick and sturdy and slice more cleanly than a cheesecake made without the addition of lemon juice!
