Whip up a dreamy no bake blueberry dessert, aka blueberry yum yum, with cream cheese, Dream Whip, blueberry pie filling, and a pecan crust. Easy recipe!

If you've been blueberry picking, I've got the perfect blueberry dessert for you. Made with a pecan crust, blueberry pie filling, and a creamy layer of cream cheese lush, it's just as dreamy as fresh blueberry cobbler.

Growing up, my mom always made what she called a Cherry Crunch; it was my dad's favorite dessert. Well, this blueberry delight is a twist on that classic dessert.

While the pie crust does require bake time, the rest of this recipe is no bake. We'll talk about other crust options too, just in case you don't really want to make a regular crust.

You can find links to both my crust recipe and the pie filling in the printable recipe card toward the bottom of this post.

Remember, all of the ingredient amounts you’ll need are in the printable recipe card below.

KITCHEN TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT YOU'LL NEED:

13″x9″ Baking Dish – You'll need this size baking dish for this recipe. I find myself using this size for so many recipes, not just desserts.

Mixer – You'll need a mixer to mix together the ingredients for the creamy filling.

Spatula – Where would I be without my spatulas? I have a whole slew of them because we’re ALWAYS using them.

HOW TO MAKE THE 3-INGREDIENT PIE CRUST

If you want a baked crust, making the crust is so simple and easy and requires just a few minutes of bake time.

It requires only 4 steps…

  • Melt the butter.
  • Mix the butter with the flour and pecans.
  • Press the dough into a 13″x9″ baking dish.
  • Then just bake and cool.

ALTERNATIVE CRUST OPTIONS FOR BLUEBERRY YUM YUM

You can get creative with the crust, as well, especially if you'd rather have a fully no bake option. For instance…

  • Graham cracker crust – with or without bake time.
  • Pecan Sandies crust – Make it like you would a graham cracker crust.
  • Easy shortcut no-roll pie crust (without nuts)
  • Vanilla Wafer crust
  • Buy a store bought crust and press pecans into it. (This would likely make a smaller pie.)
  • Line a graham cracker crust with sliced bananas.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY YUM YUM

Ok, you've got your crust made and ready to go. And hopefully, you've got your blueberry purée or pie filling ready to go too.

Before you get started, be sure to soften and whip your cream cheese with a whisking paddle, and then set it aside. This will help the cream cheese to soften up more, and it will blend in better with the Dream Whip, once you’re ready for that step.

Now you can follow these steps to make blueberry delight with a Dream Whip filling…

  1. In a separate mixer bowl with an electric mixer, whisk together the Dream Whip with the milk and vanilla, according to package directions.
  2. Whisk the whipped cream mixture until it begins to form soft peaks, about 4 minutes. You can also follow this tutorial for how to make Dream Whip.
  3. Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar into the Dream Whip mixture.
  4. Whisk the cream cheese mixture for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it’s velvety smooth and creamy.

LAYER YOUR NO BAKE DESSERT

  1. Spread the Dream Whip cream cheese filling onto the prepared and cooled pie crust.

  1. Then top it all off with blueberry pie filling.

  1. Cover your no bake blueberry dessert and allow it to chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible.

And that's it! You can save back a little bit of Dream Whip and use the remaining whipped topping for the top, maybe add a dollop on each slice you serve.

Another great tip… You can split the Dream Whip filling (and the blueberry topping) in half to make 2 smaller pies.

CAN I USE WHIPPED CREAM OR COOL WHIP INSTEAD OF DREAM WHIP?

I've tried making the cream cheese filling with homemade whipped cream; for some reason, it just hasn't worked as well. So I usually reserve my whipped topping for the top and use Dream Whip for the filling, which is what my mom uses in her Cherry Crunch.

Now some people do make this filling with Cool Whip, but I’ve carried on my mom’s tradition of a creamy Dream Whip filling. I like to call it angel fluff.

HOW TO STORE BLUEBERRY DELIGHT

This recipe is so easy. If you're not quite ready to serve it, just cover it and chill in the refrigerator; and it'll be ready when you are.

I do recommend making this no more than 1 day ahead of time. But it should keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, as long as you keep it covered.

CAN YOU FREEZE THIS EASY BLUEBERRY DESSERT?

You can definitely make this recipe ahead of time, freeze it, and thaw it when you need it.

Now one tip… I would definitely freeze it before adding the pie filling. Especially if you're using canned pie filling, it'd be super easy to just add that later on after you've thawed the crust and creamy filling.

Just be sure, if you do freeze this dessert, to cover it well so it doesn't get freezer burnt.

    I have made this dessert several times already and it has become a favorite by everyone who tries it! The crust is easy and fabulous and TOTALLY makes the dessert perfect! I use heavy whipping cream instead of dream whip as my whipped cream and it’s decadent! This is a winner!!! Love, love, love it! Thanks for sharing!

    Hello Mel,

    Just wanted to let you know that you helped me find a lost recipe of my mother’s. This blueberry dessert is a favorite recipe that my mother used to make for us all (6) children and my Dad who will be turning 90 this December 2019. Mom passed away in Jan. 2016 and no one in the family could find this loved recipe. So I’ve been searching for almost a year. I am her oldest daughter. I finally came upon your recipe and said this is the closest I can come to Mom’s recipe from memory. I’m home visiting my Dad ( in the Chicago area) and quite a few of my siblings. I decided to make it and OMG my Dad, and my siblings have gone crazy, saying I found Mom’s lost recipe. Needless to say I have made this for almost everyone in the family. It has been a HUGE success and I can’t thank you enough. I look forward to following you on Pinterest and hope I can share a recipe or two with you soon. God bless you, you don’t know how happy you made my family.

    • Lynn, God bless you for sharing this with me. Oh my goodness, thank you! This is a lot of why I do what I do because I love connecting food with memories and with people we love. I’m so happy I was able to bring your family this little bit of happiness.

    I made this dessert for Mother’s Day and it was a Huge Hit! I did halve the recipe and cheated by using a ready made graham cracker crust. It is definitely one that I will make again.

  5. Horrible time getting the blueberries on top! They smeared into the cream cheese filling. I used the correct amount and did not add them till the next morning after the crust and filing were in the frig all night.

    • It’s definitely an art getting the pie filling on top of the filling. I usually spread them all around as I pour them on, then just gently move them around to fill all the spaces.

  6. My grandma use to make this we called it Blueberry Delight but hers had a couple different things from your she used walnuts for the crust and added a 1/2 brown sugar and only 1 package of cream cheese I haven’t had this in a few years. It’s my all time favorite

    Reply
    • Danette, thank you for sharing! Walnuts would be wonderful. I would love to try her version; I bet it was delicious. I know my grandma’s recipes were the best, and I have so many memories from her wonderful cooking.

  7. In the South some call it blueberry fluff and we bake our crust from scratch with flour, butter, sugar and toasted pecans for 15 minutes. Always used cool whip! My hubby loves it and making it for our family Easter egg hunt tomorrow!
