Well guys, it’s the first Monday without the Bachelorette.

I don’t know about you, but I need something to pick my spirits up. The good news is Bachelor in Paradise is on, and that’s always sure to bring some drama. But just in case that doesn’t do the trick, this Goat Cheese Cheesecake will!

That’s right, you heard me right! GOAT CHEESE Cheesecake!

Goat Cheese is flippin awesome, so why not put it in a cheesecake. Or at least that is the thought I had!!! Makes perfect sense to me, it’s the same consistency as cream cheese so it should work.

Well, guess what?!? It sooo does!!!

This past Saturday was my dad’s birthday. He is a cheesecake LOVER …. well really, he’s a anything dessert lover. But cheesecake is his absolute favorite!

Ahem.. I follow in his footsteps. 🙂

We even had cheesecake as our wedding cake and it was the BEST cake ever!!!!

But back to this Cheesecake. Because it was my dad’s birthday, I wanted to bring him a cake .. and one that I KNOW he would love. My plan was to take it to their house, but unfortunately I forgot it … I guess we’ll just have to eat the whole thing ourselves. hehehe.

Don’t worry, we still had cheesecake for his birthday it was just a cheesecake factory cheesecake. But honestly, this one was WAY BETTER .. and I’m not just saying that because I made it.

This Cheesecake has so many different dimensions. The Goat Cheese is creamy but a little tangy. The cheesecake mixture turns into this luscious, light, fluffy, dreamy mixture that is slightly sweet from some honey, with a hint of vanilla extract and fresh lemon zest! Honestly, the cheesecake itself is absolutely outstanding but since blueberries are all over the supermarket I made a homemade lemon blueberry compote to tie everything together.

Ya’ll.   O. M. G. !!!!!

I promise it is LOVE at first bite!

Bon Appetit sweet friends!

A light, fluffy, and super creamy cheesecake with a slight hint of lemon that’s topped with a homemade Lemon Blueberry Compote!



For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 2 cups ground graham crackers
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Goat Cheese Filling:

  • 12 oz. goat cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. plain greek yogurt
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

For the Lemon Blueberry Compote:

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Place five 4×4 mini cheesecake springform pans on a baking sheet. Grease with cooking spray.

  6. Evenly distribute the cheesecake mixture among the 5 springform pans.
  7. Place baking sheet with springform pans in the oven. Add 2 cups of water to the baking sheet (this will help make sure the cheesecakes don’t break)

  9. Remove and place cheesecakes in the refrigerator to cool.

  1. Hi there! I am a maker of goat cheese:) I’m curious, couldn’t this be a no bake cheesecake? Does it need baked? Thank you for the recipe I will be trying it!

  2. Looks fantastic! Excited to make it! Does the recipe not call for any eggs? Every cheesecake recipe I’ve ever made includes eggs. Will the cheesecake still hold normally without eggs?

    1. Yup… sure did forget to add the eggs into the recipe. (kinda important) I’ve updated the recipe sorry about that.

  3. How in the world is this supposed to set up at all with no eggs? I tried it just to give some benefit of doubt and ended up with raw cheese and yogurt in a cookie crust….

    1. Yup, should not have trusted it. I totally forgot to add them to the recipe card. That is a big party fool on my part. I am so sorry. It’s updated now!

  4. Wow! I can’t wait to make it. I’ve already bought all the ingredients. Quick question: Can I freeze the leftovers?

    1. I’m sure you could. I’d wrap it in plastic wrap first then store it in an air tight container in the freezer.

    1. Hey Tania, yes you could make these in mini cheesecake pans. I’m not sure what size yours are so I can’t tell you an exact cook time.

  5. Made this but strawberry at request. We used strawberry Greek yogurt, which helped enhance the fruit flavor. I’m going to make it again this weekend for my daughter’s birthday with the original blueberry-lemon flavor. Can’t wait! What’s amazing is there’s not sugar, just a lil bit of honey. I posted a pic on my FB & was asked for the recipe, so I directed them here! I did notice it tasted best within 1-2 days & after a few days, it got a bit hard in my refrigerator, which does tend towards the cold side. This recipe’s definitely a keeper. Mahalo!

  6. This was just awful. I must have missed something. Christmas dinner dessert. I threw out 80% of it. Sour, dry. What did I miss! I struggle with one star!

    1. OH no! I’m not sure unless I was there with you to see what happened. It should have turned out creamy, slightly tangy from the goat cheese and moist. 🙂

  7. I’m so excited to make this for an office cook off! I’m likely going to use a much smaller “cupcake” size cheesecake. How much time would you take off the cook time?

    Wow! This is gorgeous, Krista! 🙂 And how creative to use goat cheese in a cheesecake! I never would have thought to do that!

    I love this idea, Krista. I LOVE goat cheese and can’t wait to try it in a cheesecake. But that compote! I would love to make a big batch of that and enjoy some over pancakes too.

    1. Yup, I have left over of the compote and that’s the plan. Pancakes or Waffles 🙂 great minds think alike!
