A creamy, no-bake frozen blueberry pie, perfect for summer!
Summer doesn’t get much better than this. Sweet, ripe blueberries, frozen pie and no ovens. Can I get a hells yeah?
My main problem with this pie is trying not to eat all of the filling before I get it into the freezer. It starts with licking the spoon. Then I'm accidentally dropping the spoon back into the batter so I can lick it again. Then I'm unashamedly spooning the filling into my mouth from the bowl.
At some point, I make the wise choice to go ahead and dump what’s left into the graham cracker crust and put it in the freezer. But what do you know, I left quite a bit of it in the bowl there, didn’t I? Commence finger swiping all around the rim and inside the bowl. I may or may not have licked it with my tongue and gotten some all over my chin and cheeks in the process. I’m just glad no one was here to witness this.
The next hardest part is waiting for the blueberry pie to freeze. Probably helps if you don’t keep opening the freezer to peek at it. It only takes a few hours, but I was eager.
But your (lack of) restraint and patience will pay off because this beauty is unbelievably tasty. It’s like frozen blueberry cheesecake and it’s amazing. Sweet, a tiny bit tart, the most beautiful purple and so cold and creamy. It’s the perfect summer dessert! And I even lightened it up a tad, so it’s healthy-ish.
You have simply got to make this frozen blueberry pie.
About 20-30 minutes prep, pop it in the freezer and you are in for a serious treat. Invite some friends or neighbors over because this recipe is its own reason to celebrate.
No-bake frozen blueberry pie
A creamy no-bake frozen blueberry pie, perfect for summer!
For the graham cracker crust:
- 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (from about 1 ½ packages from a box)
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup butter, melted
For the blueberry pie filling:
- 3 cups fresh blueberries (see notes)
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 8 oz. cream cheese (I use ⅓ less fat)
- 1 ½ cups plain yogurt (I use nonfat)
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup heavy cream (see notes)
- Make the graham cracker crust. I crush the graham crackers in a food processor (that I reuse in the next part for the blueberry pie filling), then add the sugar, pulse it to combine, and add the butter. Pulse it a few times and it’ll get nice and combined and crumbly for you.
- Dump the crust into a well-greased 9-inch springform pan or deep-dish pie plate. Spread it evenly around the bottom and then work it up the sides. I use a measuring cup or a glass to flatten the bottom and then press the mixture against the sides of the pan. Stick the pan the refrigerator to firm up a bit while you make the filling.
- Next, combine blueberries, sugar and ½ cup yogurt in your (wiped out) food processor and process until smooth. You could use a blender, too.
- In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, remaining 1 cup of yogurt, powdered sugar and vanilla and use an electric mixer (or stand mixer) to combine until smooth. (Start on slow so your powdered sugar doesn’t go everywhere.)
- Add the blueberry mixture to the cream cheese mixture and beat on medium to combine.
- In a separate bowl, add heavy cream and use your (rinsed off) mixer to beat it until it turns into whipped cream - stiff peaks are what you want (see notes below).
- Fold the whipped cream into the blueberry mixture and carefully combine. Get your graham cracker crust from the refrigerator and pour the blueberry pie filling into it.
- Freeze the pie until solid, about 3-4 hours. Slice with a serrated pie cutter or knife, serve and enjoy! *Extras can be stored in the freezer, well covered with plastic wrap, for up to 1 week. Maybe more, but it never lasts that long here so I’m not sure 😉
I’ve not tried this using frozen blueberries, but you probably could substitute them. Make sure they are completely thawed and don’t have too much extra water or liquid with them.
You could sub store-bought whipped cream, but it takes just minutes to make your own. You’ve already got the hand or stand mixer out, so go ahead and use it. It took me maybe a minute on medium-high speed to whip the heavy cream into whipped cream. I wasn’t even paying close attention to the “peaks,” so don’t worry if you’ve never done it before. Confession: I hadn’t! We don’t ever use whipped cream so I’d never made my own. But guess what - it’s super easy!

Kathryn, you can totally get a hellz yea-ya(!) To this blueberry pie! Not only is it no bake (#winning) it's also gorgeous and the flavors sound amazing! I'm definately going to have to double the recipe and make two because I can GUARANTEE one of them ain't making it to the freezer!! I'll be eating the batter like it's my job (that is kind of part of a food bloggers job, right?)! Love this! <3 pinned!!! Cheers, girlfriend!
Thanks girl! Yes, doubling is a good idea cause then you can freeze one and spoon feed yourself the other. I'm such a batter addict 🙂 XXOO

I love your description of eating the mixture - I *may* just do that too! This looks so great and I am a HUGE fan of no bake desserts! Thanks for linking up with us for Fabulous Foodie Fridays, have a great weekend 🙂
Haha, I mean, you can try and resist, but what's the point?! And yes to no-bake desserts - they're the best 🙂
Yum, the recipe for this looks so yummy and I just love the colour. #FFF
Thanks Malinda! I know, it's a looker, isn't it? Purple is my FAVORITE color, too, so this dessert makes me happy on multiple levels 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Due to a blueberry allergy at our house, I made this with strawberries. It was awesome.
I'm so glad you loved it, Jenny! Now I'm going to go have to make the strawberry version 🙂

Congratulations -Your post will be featured this week at the Friday Favorites Link Party. The party goes LIVE on Thursdays at 7PM at mustlovehome.com I hope to see your there! Hugs - Christine at Must Love Home
Thanks so much Christine! I'm all about cooling down (and not heating up the oven) in the summer here in the South - and this is one of our favorites 🙂 I will definitely be at the party - thanks so much for the feature! XO
This is gorgeous!! and looks absolutely delicious!!
Thank you Krista!
My Mom used to make something similar to this when I was little and I have been trying to find the recipe! Perfect timing, a great Summer treat 🙂 Pinned.
Aww, that's so great! Thanks Angela!

Perfect summer dessert! We always have tons of fresh blueberries on hand and I'm not usually sure what to do with them (we can only eat so many)... they end up getting stuffed in the freezer for baked goods all winter long. I can not wait to try this! Pinned.
Thanks so much - I hope you love it!
Pinning and making this soon because I still have a freezer full of blueberries - thanks for sharing this at #HappinessIsHomemade this week, looks outstanding!
Thanks so much Katie! I hope you give it a try!
It look so fresh with this blueberry pie and delicious 🙂
Thanks Jeanette! It's a summer favorite here!
Jenna @ A Savory Feast
This pie sounds amazing for summer! Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits, especially in a sweet treat like this. I bet I could add strawberries for a red, white and blue treat for the 4th!
I'm totally in love with blueberries too, Jenna! And yes, I think you could definitely add in some strawberries - maybe a layer of thinly sliced strawberries on the top to serve it? Or make two separate fillings and layer them? Would be super festive 🙂
Michelle | The Secret Ingredient Is
Yum! This looks like such a perfect summer treat - I'm a sucker for anything with blueberries, but more importantly that graham cracker crust is calling my name!
Haha, I'm the same way - with both blueberries and a graham cracker crust 🙂 Thanks Michelle!
Yup, I also foresee having trouble not eating half the filling before it ever hits the crust. This looks fantastic, and I love that it's no-bake. The weather is getting hot!
Self-control is not my strong suit 😉 And yes - this is perfect for the summer time when I don't want the oven on but still have a sweet tooth to satisfy!

I saw this recipe and thought, this is it , im making this today. So it is in my freezer now ,boy are we looking forward to trying this pie.
Haha, that's so great Carol! I hope you love it!
So beautiful! Gonna have to try it with a gluten-free crust!
I hope you do Raia! Would love to hear what you think!
Are the nutrition facts for real?
Hi Shirley! The nutrition facts were originally for the entire pie. I've just updated it to reflect 10 servings (10 slices) and the nutrition info has been adjusted accordingly. Hope that helps!
Thanks - I thought that might be the answer. When the blueberries are ripe in my area of Maine I will give this a try - it sounds wonderful and the reviews prove it.
I hope you love it Shirley! I look forward to making this every year once the fresh blueberries start showing up! 💙
Hey there is this with Greek yogurt or runny yogurt? If it's with runny have you tried with Greek? Do you think that would work? Thanks and sorry for the annoying question haha!!
Hi there Kel! Not annoying at all. 🙂 I am all about Greek yogurt but actually used regular yogurt for this. I think you could probably sub in Greek yogurt but you may need a little extra sweetener (since it's more tart than regular yogurt) and maybe a little extra liquid (heavy cream) since it's also thicker. Would love to hear if you try it!
I don't have a food processor-- do you think I could still make this by simply mashing the blueberries?
You could try using a blender as well. Hand mashing could work too but it won't be nearly as smooth. Would love to hear if you try it!
Has anyone tried this with frozen blueberries yet? I have about yobs in my freezer, that I need to use up. This recipes sounds so delicious! Can't wait to try it 🙂
Typo, that was suppose to be 5 lbs
I think you could use frozen blueberries. I'd recommend letting them thaw completely first (measure out 3 cups or so and put them in the fridge overnight) and draining off any extra juice that the thawed fruit has released. Would love to hear if you try it!
What is “heavy cream”? How do you make it into whipping cream?
Heavy cream is a dairy product. You'll find it near milks in the dairy section of your grocery store. You make it into whipping cream by using a stand mixer or hand mixer and beating it for 5-6 minutes, until it thickens and forms stiff peaks. I hope that helps.
This is a delicious recipe. I have made this a few times now. I love it.
I'm so happy to hear that Matt! Thanks for sharing! 😊
Just made this, first time playing with crumble and it was a bit more crumbly than expected so hopefully it freezes up, it did solidify more after being in the fridge. I used the measuring cup tip, thank you! I also added a dash of cinnamon to crust and forgot to grease the nonstick pan so hopefully that’s not an issue.
I used strawberry Greek chobani yogurt instead of plain and cool whip instead of heavy cream. I legit couldn’t stop licking the bowl! Holy yum! lol looking forward to dive in! Will update with results. Thanks for the recipe
I hope you enjoy it Keesha! Let us know how all those substitutions turned out! 😊
