I am really loving all the summer flavors and berries I’m seeing out there right now. June is one of the best months of the summer. It’s usually not too hot yet, school lets out, graduations are happening and we have our annual summer trip to Bass Lake. When we’re up there, it’s definitely too hot to bake, so it’s the perfect time for frozen desserts.
In preparation for your summer activities, I’m sharing this Easy No-Churn Blueberry Ice Cream Pie and you’ll never guess what makes this pie so easy!
The crust is made with vanilla wafer cookies because they are a bit sweeter than a graham cracker crust. When you are preparing the filling, I recommend putting the crust in the freezer. That way, when you add the filling, it will prevent the crust from crumbling apart.
I always make my desserts in a springform pan because it makes removing the sides of the pan so easy. It also helps because there is quite a bit of filling, so if you are looking to use a store-bought crust, then you’ll probably get two ice cream pies.
The filling is 5 simple ingredients. It starts with a batch of homemade whipped cream, but if you are looking to simplify, you could use a premade whipped topping from the grocery store.
Then you add a can of sweetened condensed milk and a jar of Lucky Leaf Blueberry Pie Filling. YES! I said pie filling! The filling has chunks of blueberries mixed in, leaving you all those pretty berries in the ice cream. Would you believe it makes this ice cream so thick and creamy? To accent the blueberry filling, I’ve added some lemon zest, which never did anyone any harm.
How easy is that? Just 5 ingredients (or less if you use prepared whipped topping!), about 15 minutes later your dessert is ready to head to the freezer. Plus, you don’t need any fancy machines to make this ice cream. That’s why it’s called “no-churn”.
Throw this pie in the freezer and let it sit for about 3 or 4 hours. You can even make it a day or two ahead of time so you have dessert on hand when you need it! I always like to serve a little whipped cream with my ice cream. I made a second batch of whipped cream and added the boarders with a large star dip, but a dollop on top will also do the trick. Or you can take it one step further and spread the whipped cream as a layer over top of the pie. To finish it off, I zested a little lemon on top for color.
A special thanks to my friends at Lucky Leaf for partnering with me on this recipe today. I’ve been working with Lucky Leaf for a couple years now, and I love to find new and unique ways to use their pie filling.
