No Bake Blueberry Pie v. Traditional Bakery Pie

In my opinion, I’ll take no bake blueberry pie over traditional baked blueberry pie any day! I love the light, creamy texture of the whipped cream cheese and cream layer, paired with the almost jello like texture of the boiled blueberry glazed topping.

Here in Michigan, July is usually when you can start picking fresh blueberries, which makes for the best seasonal desserts. While this no-bake blueberry pie is perfect for just that, you can certainly make this anytime using store-bought fresh blueberries!

The ingredients aren’t fussy, and can typically be found in either my refrigerator or pantry on any day. Plus, if you just went blueberry picking and have a bunch of blueberries, this is a great recipe to try to use them up! 

Tools You’ll Need:

Ingredients

No bake blueberry cheesecake by a bowl of berries.
  • 5 oz. softened cream cheese
  • ½ Cup confectionary sugar
  • ¾ Cup heavy whipping cream (whipped) or Cool Whip (extra creamy) 
  • 1 Graham Cracker Crust Pie Shell
  • ⅓ Cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • ¼ Cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Cups fresh blueberries (washed)

Directions

Step 1. In a small mixing bowl with handheld electric mixer, or a KitchenAid stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, and confectionary sugar until smooth. Then fold in the whipped heavy cream or store-bought, extra creamy Cool Whip using a spatula. 

Step 2. Using a spatula, spread the whipped cream and cream cheese mixture into the pre-made graham cracker pie crust, making an even layer.

Step 3.  Using ¼ – ½ of the fresh blueberries, sprinkle some on top of the cream cheese mixture, evenly distributing them. Then place the pie in the refrigerator to chill while making the jelly-like topping.

Step 4. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water and freshly squeezed lemon juice until smooth. Then stir in the remaining fresh blueberries. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, cooking and stirring for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries for No Bake Blueberry Pie?

While you definitely could, I personally always stick with fresh blueberries. One reason being, it might mess with the consistency. Therefore, the glaze topping may not set properly.

While I’ve never tried using frozen blueberries in this particular recipe, that doesn’t mean you can’t give it a go! I would just suggest experimenting with the amount of cornstarch and boiling time to ensure the frozen blueberries aren’t too runny. This way, the glaze will gel the way it’s intended to.

However, in my humble opinion, you simply cannot beat the taste and texture of the deliciously fresh blueberry layer in this recipe! If using frozen blueberries, you’d have to skip this layer.

Fresh Blueberry Tip

When it comes to choosing blueberries for your no bake blueberry pie, be sure to pick the freshest, ripest berries you can find. Look for plump, firm berries with a deep blue hue and a dusty white bloom on the surface. And, if you can, choose organic blueberries to avoid any pesticide residue.

Other Fruit Substitutions For No Bake Pie

Want to switch it up and try this recipe with another fruit? You certainly can!

I find comparable substitutions that don’t disrupt the consistency are fresh cherries, raspberries, and blackberries. 

You could also try using fresh strawberries, but again, you may want to add a touch more cornstarch or boil it a bit longer to ensure the jelly topping solidifies properly.
