Whip up a dreamy blueberry delight. Easy recipe for a no bake blueberry dessert, made with Dream Whip, cream cheese, blueberry pie filling, and a pecan crust.
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, making it a great dessert for times when you just don't feel like heating up the kitchen.

HOW TO MAKE THE 3-INGREDIENT PIE CRUST
Making the crust is so simple and easy and requires just a few minutes of bake time. In fact, you can find the delicious pecan pie crust recipe here.
It requires only 4 steps…
- Melting the butter.
- Mixing the butter with the flour and pecans.
- Pressing the dough into a 13″x9″ baking dish.
- Then just bake and cool.
ALTERNATIVE PIE CRUST OPTIONS
You can get creative with the crust, as well. For instance…
- Graham cracker crust
- Pecan Sandies crust – Make it like you would a graham cracker crust.
- Press-in pie crust without nuts
- Vanilla Wafer crust
- Line a graham cracker crust with sliced bananas.
- Press crushed pretzels into the pie crust instead of pecans.
Speaking of bananas, this easy banana pudding is another one of our favorite no bake desserts.
TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY BLUEBERRY DESSERT
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.
Tips and steps for making blueberry delight with Dream Whip…
- Beat the cream cheese separately first thing. This will help it soften up more, and it will blend in better with the Dream Whip, once you’re ready for that step.
- Mix the Dream Whip according to the package directions (also included in the recipe card below).
- You can split the Dream Whip filling in half to make 2 smaller pies (also, the strawberry filling above).
- You can save back just a little bit of whipped cream for a whipped topping on the final dessert.
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.
CAN YOU FREEZE BLUEBERRY DELIGHT?
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 or put it in a sealed container so it doesn’t get freezer burn.
