This show stopper Red, White, and Blueberry Pie is great for picnics, barbecues, and special summer celebrations. It was my go to dessert to take on our Memorial Day and 4th of July picnics.

A Summer Dessert You Won’t Forget

If you are a fan of white chocolate, then this will probably be one of your favorite recipes! Recently I made this recipe for a family dinner. It has been years since I made this for my youngest son, but the moment he heard the name of the recipe, he knew exactly what it was!

This Red, White, and Blueberry Pie is also one of Grumpy’s Favorites. He is a big fan of white chocolate, which is what I think makes this recipe so special!

Where this Red, White, and Blueberry Pie Recipe Originated

I first had a version of this recipe at a Pampered Chef party. The demonstrator made the pie in one of their stoneware pie plates. Needless to say, I bought the pie plate and have been making my own version of this pie ever since!

My version is a bit different than Pampered Chef’s version. There is no boxed pudding mix due to the fact we don’t use regular milk in our home. So, I had to come up with a way to make this recipe from scratch to make it work.

Pie Crust – feel free to make your own homemade pie crust recipe, or buy a premade pie crust. I make the pie crust for this Rhubarb Custard Pie recipe.

9 inch deep dish pie plate – I do have the stoneware pie plate I bought from Pampered Chef which is the one I use most of the time. However, I have used my pyrex glass pie dish also.

Light Coconut Milk – be sure to use the canned coconut milk, not the refrigerated version.

Almond Milk – I use this brand.

White Chocolate Chips – be sure to buy a good quality white chocolate chip and follow the instructions on the bag for melting.

Make this a cheesecake flavored pie

  • Substitute 1 box of cheesecake flavored pudding, 8 ounces cream cheese (softened), and 1-1/2 cups milk for the pudding portion of this recipe.
  • Using a hand mixer, blend the cream cheese and pudding mix until creamy. Gradually blend in the milk until creamy and smooth. Proceed as directed in step 7 of recipe card.

Why I Don’t Use Cow’s Milk

Cow’s milk is not a part of my regular diet. I don’t drink milk, never had liked it much at all. Once in a blue moon I will buy it, but never for myself. The reason behind this is not so much diet, but the fat that cow’s milk spoils faster than we will use it in our home.

Non-dairy milks, such as coconut, almond, and cashew tend to have a much longer shelf life and work just as well for us. While I do bake and cook things that call for milk, I will never use even 1 quart of milk fast enough to keep it from spoiling.

It Is Ok To Use Cow’s Milk To Make This Recipe

You can still make this recipe and use regular cow’s milk. Whole milk, 2%, 1% or non fat milk works. The only difference will be a slightly less rich flavor the less butterat there is in the milk.

Tips and Substitutions

  • Wash and pat dry the strawberries before using. Any water on the strawberries will prevent the white chocolate from sticking.
  • Add the sliced strawberries to the top of the white chocolate in the pie shell while the chocolate is still wet (not hardened).
  • Homemade whipped topping can be substituted for the frozen, thawed whipped topping.
  • Substitute a graham cracker crust for the regular pie crust
  • Substitute 1 box of cheesecake flavored pudding, 8 ounces cream cheese, and 1 cup cow’s milk for the pudding portion of this recipe.

    This looks delicious! Yes, I recently found out the hard way that almond milk doesn't thicken up puddings. Glad to know that coconut milk does though. I like it just as well!
