Why You Should Try This Blueberry Cream Pie With Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe
There are quite a few no bake Blue Cream Pie recipes floating around the internet, but this one is probably the most effortless to make.
Some no-bake recipes require you to heat the filling on the stovetop to thicken, but most of these fillings still wind up on the runny side. This Blueberry Cream Pie version requires no cooking at all, yet the cream is thick and rich.
No Bake Blueberry Cream Pie Ingredients
- Whipped topping
- Condensed milk
- Lemon juice
- Fresh blueberries
- Graham cracker pie crusts
You can use any whipped topping, like Cool Whip, in this recipe. Please stay away from real whipped cream because heavy whipped cream is not stable enough and will break down much sooner.
You can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or lemon zest for additional flavor.
This pie is even easier if you buy pre-made graham cracker pie crust. However, nothing beats a homemade crust, and it is worth the little bit of extra effort it takes. Making your own crust allows more control. Here’s how
Combine 1½ cups of graham cracker crumbs, two tablespoons of sugar (white or brown sugar), and 6 tablespoons of melted butter in a medium bowl. Mix them and press the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Swap vanilla or chocolate wafer cookies for the graham crackers, or choose a crushed nut crust.
Resist the urge to use frozen blueberries. Sure, they are cheaper and available year-round, but frozen blueberries are usually tart and will bleed, turning your pie purple.
How to Make This Blueberry Cream Pie No Bake Recipe
This Blueberry Cream Pie recipe makes two pies. Since they don’t freeze well, you may want only to make one. You can use up the leftover condensed milk in another dish or freeze it for up to three months in an airtight container.
To prepare this recipe:
- Mix the condensed milk and the lemon juice in a large mixing bowl with a whisk or rubber spatula.
- Gently fold the Cool Whip into the other ingredients.
- Add the berries to the cream mixture and stir gently.
- Fill each graham cracker crumb crusts with half of the pie mixture. Smooth the top of the pie with an offset spatula.
- Loosely cover the top of the pies with plastic wrap and refrigerate them until the filling sets, about three to four hours. Keep the pies in the fridge until serving.
What to Serve With Blueberry Cream Pie
A thick slice of pie is more than enough for most people, but when you want just a little more, try a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. You can sprinkle some fresh blueberries or lemon zest as a garnish.
Nothing beats a great cup of coffee with a slice of pie. Brew your favorite hot coffee, or try McDonald’s Iced Coffee instead.
How to Store the Leftovers
Keep blueberry cream with graham cracker crust pies wrapped in plastic or inside pie keepers in the fridge. Freezing these pies isn’t a good idea because the filling may start to break down.
How Long Will These Pies Last?
The pies will stay fresh for up to three days in the fridge, but the sooner you eat them, the better.
