Why you should make this No-Bake Blueberry Pie

I can’t help but gush over how great this blueberry pie recipe is! 

First of all, this No Bake Blueberry Pie tastes absolutely amazing

My official taste tester (the hubs) proclaimed the pie to be a very close runner up to our favorite blueberry dump cake (hard to beat blueberry pie filling, yellow cake and all that butter, lol.)

I told him it tastes so good because I pretty much-made blueberry pie filling when cooking the blueberries.

Another reason you should make this pie? IT’S NO-BAKE and super easy!

10-ish minutes on the stove and that’s it!!

No heating up the kitchen with the oven. (Just remember, you do need a couple of hours in the fridge for the blueberry pie to firm up.)

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 pie, blueberry and chia seed jam recipe (coming soon) and for snacks, frozen blueberries in vanilla yogurt and fresh blueberries with cool whip – yum!

Ingredients in this No-Bake Blueberry Pie

If you are heading to the store and want to make this pie, these are the ingredients to add to your list:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsps cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 cups of blueberries, divided (any combo of fresh or frozen works, but for best results, use at least 3/4 cup of fresh blueberries for the last step)
  • premade crust (we prefer graham cracker)
  • whipped topping (I prefer the flavor of cool whip for this recipe, but use whatever you prefer)

 

To make this pie you’re basically dumping in a few cups of blueberries, sugar, a bit of lemon juice and then cooking the blueberry mixture for 5 to 10 minutes.

The pie needs a couple of hours to set up in the fridge, but that is all there is to it!  

 

Serve it with a dollop of cool whip and you will be and blueberry pie heaven!

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.

If you end up making this no bake blueberry pie, be sure to come back and let everyone know what you think!
