Why turn on the oven when it's 30 C outside? Make this no-bake pie with B.C. blueberries when they are in season in the summer for a cool treat.


2 large eggs
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 cups B.C. blueberries, fresh or frozen, divided

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cornstarch, sugar, whipping cream and milk. Whisking constantly, cook until heated and thickened for 6-7 minutes. Do not boil.

Whisk half the hot mixture into the eggs. Return to the sauce pan with the remaining mixture, then whisk in the butter and lemon juice.

Reheat mixture on low heat for another 3 minutes, again whisking constantly, do not boil.

Transfer to a clean bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour until cooled.


1¾ cups crushed graham crackers
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup salted butter, melted

mix the cookie crumbs and cinnamon in a bowl; add the melted butter and mix. Transfer to a 9” pie dish, and press mixture evenly to the bottom and sides. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Fold 2 cups of the blueberries into the chilled pudding, pour filling into the pie shell, and top with remaining blueberries.

Refrigerate for 1 - 2 hours. Serve chilled with a dollop of whipped cream.
