Blueberries are good for you!



Blueberries are one of those seasonal summer fruits I adore! Although our North American blueberry season runs from April through September, we can enjoy fresh blueberries year round thanks to South American imports from October through March. So it's always blueberry season!

Blueberries are good for you. They are bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Did you know that, for their size, blueberries have the most antioxidant properties out of all the popular fruits and vegetables?

I love to enjoy blueberries in sweet recipes like this incredible Blueberry Coffee Cake and Blueberry Frozen Yogurt and in savory recipes like this delicious Blueberry Pecan Chicken Salad. In fact, if you search BLUEBERRY in the search bar, you'll find a plethora of blueberry recipes on this blog. But today, we are going to talk about this outstanding recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie can easily be adapted to fit certain dietary needs. You can swap the sugar in the recipe for sugar substitutes to help keep the sugar content down. You can also substitute full fat ingredients for the reduced fat versions. 

You can even skip making a homemade graham cracker crust in this recipe, and opt for a store bought ready made crust instead. How's that for easy?

Recipes with fresh blueberries 


Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie is made with fresh blueberries. However, frozen blueberries can be substituted if needed. Since fresh blueberries are available year round, I almost always choose to use fresh blueberries in this recipe and in recipes like Fresh Blueberry Cake.

Tips for making the best Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie


  • Make sure the pie crust is completely cooled before adding the filling
  • Make sure the topping has cooled to at least room temperature before adding to the pie.
  • You can skip baking the graham cracker crust, and refrigerate until firm after forming the crust on the pie plate. Your crust will be softer and more crumbly than if you baked it, but it will hold together as long as the pie is kept cold. 
  • Use a deep 9.5 inch pie plate to make sure everything fits!
  • Cook the blueberry topping for 1 minute after the mixture comes to a boil, to ensure the cornstarch thickens the topping properly.

You can use frozen blueberries in place of fresh.

You can use regular cream cheese and any variety of Cool Whip you like.
