Instructions for Red, White, and Blueberry Cream Pie Recipe
✱ Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and instructions!
Step 1 | Melt the Chocolate
Melting the white chocolate is easy, but the chocolate can burn. So heat it in a small bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir, then another 20 seconds until it is melted.
If you would rather, you can use the double boiler melting method. Simply boil a medium saucepan over high heat and remove it from the burner. Then place a medium or large bowl over the pan of water and stir the chocolate until it melts.
Then spread the creamy chocolate all over the prepared pie crust.
Meanwhile, wash, dry, and slice the fresh strawberries and place a layer on top of the white chocolate. See how yummy the layers of flavor are in this recipe!
Step 2 | Mix the No-Bake Cheesecake Pie Filling
Either get out a large mixing bowl or the bowl from your stand mixer and beat the softened cream cheese and add in the powdered sugar and cream together until they are smooth.
Then slowly add in the milk and mix until it is fully combined.
Step 3 | Add Pudding Mix
Now you can add in the box of powdered vanilla or cheesecake flavored dry pudding mix and mix that well until it is incorporated and becomes thick. This part takes about 2 minutes. And be sure to scrape the sides occasionally to get all the good pudding mix in there.
Then place spatulas full of the creamy filling mixture into the pie crust.
Step 4 | Top with a Little Whipped Cream
There is nothing like a whipped cream topping, in my opinion. And who are we kidding? If it was not on the pie, we would just add it.
So, skip the step and put a layer of homemade whipped cream or store-bought whipped topping into the filling in the pie crust, if you would prefer.
Prepare the remainder of the fresh strawberries, blueberries, and any berries you like to garnish the top of the pie.
I like to use a mixture for the patriotic holidays like blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries adding texture and that red, white, and blue color combo to the dish.
You can use just one type of berry or use blueberries and one other red berry on top in the shape of a flag.
Step 5 | Refrigerate
Now you can cover the pie loosely with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in the fridge for 2 to 4 hours to let the filling set up.
Note: Wait to add the berries until you are ready to serve.
- Keep the berries fresh longer by sprinkling a little fresh lemon juice or orange juice over the berries and lightly toss.
- If you are traveling with the pie, save the whipped topping in a plastic container or zippered bag and the berries in another. Then add them when you get there so it looks nice and freshly garnished.
- Ensure you get all the water off the berries by patting them dry with paper towels. That way you do not end up with a soggy topping.
- Double the recipe and make it in a 9x13 baking dish for Berry Cheesecake Bars!

Substitutions and Variations:
You can make the Graham Cracker Crust ahead and freeze it for 2 months in advance to make the prep move a bit faster. Remove from the freezer and add filling and toppings and serve.

Cover with foil or plastic wrap or place in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
You can freeze this pie, however, I would recommend adding the topping and berries if possible when ready to serve. I have frozen the pie and thawed it to serve and it was still delicious.
