Blueberries on the Menu

Even though it’s strawberry season, we’ve been eating a lot of blueberries lately!

I’ve been trying to clear out some of the older frozen stuff from my freezer to make room for new, fresher items. 

Turns out, I had several bags of frozen blueberries in our outside freezer. (I think hubby bought them when he was on his smoothie kick.) Plus, fresh blueberries seem to be one of the fruits that have stayed in stock during this mad run on groceries.

I’ve been using the blueberries in tons of ways, including a strawberry and blueberry shortcake (super easy, my daughter even made the shortcakes), this easy blueberry galette, a blueberry jam recipe, and for snacks, frozen blueberries in vanilla yogurt and fresh blueberries with cool whip – yum!

FAQ’s

Can I use frozen blueberries in this recipe?

Of course, in fact, you can use any combination of fresh or frozen to make this easy no bake blueberry pie. Since I am trying to clean out my freezer a bit, I used 3 cups frozen and 1 cup fresh. 

The only difference is if you use all frozen blueberries, just cook all the blueberries at once, instead of setting any aside for later. If you use any percentage of fresh, save (at most) 1 cup to mix back into the cooked blueberries.

Why didn’t my pie set up?

Make sure to cook the blueberries on the stovetop until the cornstarch has done its job and thickened the blueberries. Thys should resemble blueberry pie filling.

Can I make my own Graham Cracker crust?

Of course! All you need is 1.5 cups of honey graham crackers, finely crushed. (about10-12 sheets) and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Completely mix the butter with the graham cracker crumbs. Press the graham cracker crumbs into a 9-inch pie dish. I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to help press the crumbs flatter into the pie dish. I like to store the crust in the freezer until ready to use. (Helps to keep the crust from getting soggy.)

How to store a no bake blueberry Pie

Store leftover pie in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.

Can I use other fruits? 

Yes, any combo of berries or even peaches will work.

  1. Wonderful, easy recipe. This was so good I made it 2 weeks in a row. It’s my new favorite.

  2. Shannoncooks says:

    Made this for my husband’s birthday, he loves blueberries. Said it was the best pie ever.

  3. followed directions exactly….after 5 hours in fridge still liquid ???

    1. Sorry your pie did not turn out, although you must not have followed the directions “exactly.” The instructions state to cook the blueberries for 5 to 10 minutes or until the blueberries have thickened. You should not have added liquid blueberries to the pie crust. They should have been thick like blueberry pie filling, (as shown in the photos.)

  4. I added cinnamon … yummmm

  5. This pie is absolutely the best!!! Just made my third pie this week…doesn’t last long around here! A win-win for us! Hubby likes to buy from the clearance rack at the grocery store so we had a stack of walnut and pecan pie crusts in our freezer that he bought after the holidays. I just stocked up on fresh blueberries at their rock bottom lowest price of the season and voila! We have a winner!!! Can’t wait to make this for my 94 year old mom who never let a summer pass without heating the kitchen to bake blueberry pies. Going into our 4th heat wave this summer I’m extremely happy not to turn on the oven. I’ve only used fresh blueberries so far…but next time I will try using frozen. Thank you Jamie for this recipe!

  6. This is the best blueberry pie I have ever had – just love it! Could it be frozen? I’m thinking it cannot but thought I would ask

    1. That is a good question, but it is one I cannot answer. I have not tried freezing it and I googled around and could not find any information. I am thinking, no as well. I think the blueberries would loosen too much when you defrost it and it would not hold its shape.

  7. This pie was to die for. I used all frozen blueberries.

  8. This pie was the bomb, thanks for the recipe!

  9. Made this yesterday, you are right, it is amazing!

  10. great recipe

  11. This pie looks absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to try this!
