What is blueberry delight?

One of my all-time favorite blueberry summer desserts is blueberry delight! And, just as the name implies, it really is a delight. It’s an easy-to-make no bake blueberry dessert that is always a crowd-pleaser.

This dessert goes by quite a few names – blueberry delight, blueberry lush, blueberry lasagna, blueberry yum yum dessert, and blueberry dream dessert are just a few!

Whatever you choose to call it, it’s a classic no bake dessert with layers of deliciousness. It starts with a no bake graham cracker crust layered with pudding, blueberry pie filling, Cool Whip, and decorated with fresh blueberries.

It’s a great make-ahead dessert because it needs time to chill before serving it. I love that it’s no bake – you can make it in no time at all, keep it in the fridge, and then take it to whatever summer event you’re attending. It’s great for BBQs, picnics, and block parties!

The BEST No Bake Blueberry Dessert

There are so many variations of this type of dessert. I’ve seen blueberry cream cheese dessert recipes made the same way. While I love a blueberry dessert with cream cheese, this blueberry dessert lasagna with vanilla pudding is my favorite way to make it.

You can make the whole blueberry dessert recipe in about 15 minutes, and there’s no waiting time like when you use cream cheese for the filling, which has to soften first. Just mix up the no bake crust, prepare the pudding filling, and layer everything in a baking dish.

The combination of pudding, blueberries, and graham crackers in this lush dessert is seriously the best! Whenever I wonder “what dessert can I make with blueberries,” this blueberry delight is always the first on the list.

Ingredients in blueberry delight

Ingredients in Blueberry Delight Dessert

Graham Cracker Crumbs: You can use a box of them or crush your own using whole graham crackers. Just place them in a ziploc bag and roll with a rolling pin.

Granulated Sugar: To add a little sweetness to the crust. You can swap brown sugar if you prefer.

Butter: Use melted unsalted butter to form the crust.

Pudding Mix: Instant vanilla pudding mix mixed with whipped topping makes the filling – no milk needed. You can also use cheesecake flavor or even lemon!

Cool Whip: Use any kind or flavor of whipped topping.

Blueberry pie filling: You can use a can of it or my homemade blueberry pie filling recipe.

How to make Blueberry Delight

  1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and stir with a fork until the mixture is sandy. Press the mixture into a 9” square pan.
  2. Place 8 ounces of Cool Whip in a bowl. Add the dry pudding mix and stir until the mix is dissolved. Spread the pudding filling over the crust.
  3. Spread the pie filling over the pudding layer and spread more Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the dessert lasagna and refrigerate it for at least one hour before serving.
  4. I like to sprinkle fresh blueberries over the top before slicing it.

Expert Tips

  • For a light filling, don’t overmix the Cool Whip and pudding mix. This will keep the whipped topping nice and fluffy.
  • You can make this blueberry dream dessert up to a day in advance, and leftovers will keep for three days in the refrigerator.
  • I like to sprinkle fresh blueberries over the top before serving it, but this is optional. If you want to do this, wait until serving it; otherwise, the blueberries can stain the whipped topping.

Variations

Any no bake crust you like will probably work with this blueberry delight, like vanilla wafer crust or other cookie crusts. You can also use a baked crust like a shortbread cookie crust or pastry crust, but this will add time and steps to the recipe.

Use canned or homemade blueberry pie filling. You can also change it to cherry, strawberry, or other fruit pie filling that you like!

You can also use homemade whipped cream instead of prepared whipped topping, but homemade whipped cream doesn’t keep as well.

FAQ

Can you freeze blueberry delight?

Yes, you can freeze it, but it may be watery when you thaw it.

What flavor goes with blueberry?

I love to add lemon zest or orange zest to this recipe to give it a citrus flavor. It goes great with blueberries.

How to crush graham crackers?

You can crush graham crackers in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, place the graham crackers in a resealable bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

Do I have to bake the crust?

Nope! This blueberry dessert lasagna recipe has a no bake graham cracker crust!

This blueberry lush is a dream dessert for the summer! I know you’re going to love every layer of this cool and creamy blueberry delight. Make it soon and enjoy!

    1. You’d need to defrost them – and the end dessert will be more like cheesecake with berries than layered, but it’ll work.

  1. I not sure what to do with you Ms. Dorothy!!! I NORMALLY don’t like to comment before making a dish, & YOURS are ALWAYS so on point! I don’t like cool whip so I’ll make mine & WAY too many blueberries so again. HOWEVER…it’s so easy I’ll have my students make it ( I home school 6 & 7 year olds). Once a week , they bake (home eco.) plus they LOVE taking it home. When are you making APRONS?
