My family has a big sweet tooth, so our favorite thing to do right now at home is bake. Today I’m making one of my favorite sweets, Berry Cheesecake, made here using Organic Vital Berry Smoothie. Did you know juices are amazing to add to recipes, especially desserts? The bright organic berries, organic fresh orange, and organic mango in Vital Berry make the perfect addition to cheesecake. My family can’t get enough!

Start by preparing your graham cracker crust. Then combine your ingredients until they are one even texture and pour into a pan. Next comes the fun part – drizzle your Vital Berry juice onto the cheesecake and add swirls with a toothpick. Bake, let cool, and enjoy!


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ pounds soft cream cheese
  • ¾ cup sugar (separate from above)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup Organic Vital Berry, divided into half


    • Step 1

      Preheat oven to 325F

    • Step 2

      Grease and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper, hanging over the sides for easy removal

    • Step 3

      To make crumbs, just pulse some graham crackers in the food processor until fine

    • Step 4

      Combine crumbs, ½ cup sugar and butter in the food processor until it is one even texture on the bottom of the prepared pan

    • Step 5

      In a stranding mixer with paddle attachment, whip cheese until fluffy; beat in sugar; continue to beat until light and fluffy

    • Step 6

      Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then stir in heavy cream.

    • Step 7

      If at all lumpy, strain through sieve. Pour into the pan.

    • Step 8

      Drizzle ¼ cup Organic Vital Berry juice onto the cheesecake and with a toothpick, add swirls

    • Step 9

      Bake at 325F for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and leave the cheesecake in the oven for 1 hour.

    • Step 10

      Remove from the oven and let it cool gradually to room temperature, chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

    • Step 11

      When ready to serve, spread the sour cream on top of cheesecake. Garnish with raspberries and a drizzle of Organic Vital Berry.
