Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie combines a fresh blueberry lemon fruit topping and creamy no-bake cheesecake filling inside of a flaky pastry crust. It’s a light and fruity summer dessert.
Summer blueberries are great to use for baking and other desserts. We love to make this Blueberry Cream Pie with Streusel Topping. We thought a lighter, almost no-bake version would be delicious as well, and we were right!
Flaky pie crust is filled with no-bake cheesecake and topped with a blueberry lemon fruit filling. Extra whipped cream on top is optional, but oh so delicious!
All of these fruit and cream pies have a crust (pastry, vanilla wafer, graham cracker, etc.), a layer of no-bake cheesecake filling, and a fruit topping. I just can’t get enough of that fruit and cream cheese combo!
COPYCAT BLUEBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE
If you’ve ever made Blueberry Delight, a layered blueberry no-bake cheesecake dessert with a graham cracker and pecan crust, then you’ll love this blueberry cream cheese pie as well.
The only difference between the two desserts is the crust (graham cracker vs pastry) and the blueberry pie filling (homemade vs canned). The lemon juice really adds to the flavor of the homemade blueberry pie filling for this dessert.
Blueberry Delight is slightly easier to make because it uses more pre-made ingredients than this blueberry cream cheese pie, but both desserts require time in the refrigerator to set up.
Popeye’s and McDonald’s (Malaysia) actually came out with blueberry cream cheese hand pies this year. This is the bigger, better version to make at home.
HOW TO MAKE IT NO-BAKE
For a completely no-bake pie, simply make or purchase a graham cracker pie crust. You can freeze a homemade graham cracker crust for 30 minutes, or chill it in the refrigerator for 1 hour before filling it.
I do love the traditional flaky pie crust though. You can use my homemade pie crust recipe, or you can buy a frozen or refrigerated crust to save time.
If buying a pie crust, just follow the instructions on the package for (blind) baking an empty crust. My homemade pie crust recipe and instructions for blind baking are in the recipe card below. Enjoy!

- Blueberry Crumb Bars – A fresh and fruity blueberry filling is sandwiched between a buttery crust and crumble topping in these dessert bars.

- Creamy Lemon and Blueberry Pie – Just like key lime pie, this creamy lemon and blueberry pie has a buttery graham cracker crust and a zesty citrus cream filling, with the added bonus of plump blueberries. Top it with fresh whipped cream and you’ve got a delicious fruity dessert!
- 1 pie crust, homemade or store-bought
- 12 oz Neufchatel cream cheese, room temperature
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar, divided
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 Tbsp cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 12 oz fresh blueberries (2 1/2 cups)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- CRUST: Roll pie crust into a large circle, place it into a 9-inch pie dish, cut off excess, and crimp edges. Dock the bottom and sides of the raw pie crust with a fork to make holes for ventilation. Place dry beans on top of parchment paper to cover the bottom of the crust so it won't shrink while baking.
- Blind bake homemade pie crust at 350˚F for 20 minutes. Remove parchment paper with beans and finish cooking for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. NOTE: Store-bought refrigerated crusts, may bake quicker. Bake for 8-10 minutes, first, remove beans, and bake 4-5 minutes more. If preparing a frozen purchased crust, bake according to directions on package.
- FILLING: In a large bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate to keep chilled.
- TOPPING: In a medium saucepan, whisk the sugar and cornstarch together. Add the lemon juice and blueberries. Stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until THICK, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Refrigerate until chilled.
- ASSEMBLE the pie as soon as the ingredients are cold enough. Spread the cream cheese filling evenly inside of the cooled pie crust. Dollop the blueberry pie filling on top of the cream cheese layer. Smooth with a spatula. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and CHILL for 4 hours up to overnight. (Texture is best when adequately chilled.) Serve with additional whipped cream if desired.
- To use frozen blueberries, first rinse blueberries in a strainer/colander until thawed and water runs (mostly) clear. Then use as directed.
