Blueberry Lemon Monkey Bread
This pull apart monkey bread is topped with sweet and citrusy gooey goodness. Made with prepared pizza dough, it's a lot easier than it looks. We love the little zing the topping gets from lemon juice.
Red, White, and Blueberry-Filled Cupcakes
Tender and moist cupcakes with a fruity filling and topped with a tangy cream cheese icing — all the best of summer in one little package. This recipe can easily be doubled if you need a dessert for a large gathering.
Blueberry Pound Cake Muffins
What’s better than blueberry muffins? Blueberry pound cake muffins. These are sweet, fluffy, and rich, with a crispy caramelized top. The blueberries add color and flavor, and the lemon zest adds just enough tartness.
Thyme-Scented Blueberry Pie
Flavored with thyme and lemon and packed with juicy whole berries, this pie earned rave reviews in our Test Kitchen, especially when made with in-season fruit. Our secret? Quick-cooking tapioca, which makes the filling firm but not gelatinous.
Double the berries, double the deliciousness. These tender cupcakes can be made ahead and frozen; frost them before serving. Use smaller blueberries for better distribution in the batter. In a pinch? Use thawed, frozen blueberries.
Blueberry-Lavender Pie With Almond Streusel
Few dishes say summer like a classic blueberry pie. And for anyone seeking a foolproof formula for the beloved bubbling berry dessert, this is the recipe to put in your arsenal. Although lavender may seem like an unnecessary frill on what should be an inherently simple delight, rest assured, fresh blueberries are undoubtedly the star here.
Blueberry-Lemon Crunch Bars
Consider yourself warned: A crunch may look like a bar cookie, but you’ll need a fork to eat it. Similar to a crisp with baked fruit and a crumbly topping, a crunch sandwiches a layer of jammy fruit between two buttery layers.
Classic Blueberry Cobbler
If the peak of summer had a flavor, we’re willing to bet it’d taste a lot like this classic blueberry cobbler. Using ripe, juicy blueberries gives this summertime favorite the perfect level of sweetness, while vanilla extract contributes a floral depth and a little bit of aromatic lemon zest lends a lovely bala
Blueberry Sorbet “Cupcakes”
These sweet “cupcakes” made of fresh blueberry sorbet are a delightful, cooling lemon-berry treat with a cookie crunch on the bottom and fluffy whipped cream on top. They’re the perfect dessert for any summer gathering. The cupcakes can be made well in advance, simply top with fresh whipped cream right before serving.
Bisquick Topped Blueberry Cobbler
This biscuit topped blueberry cobbler recipe couldn’t be easier. Breaking out your trusty Bisquick baking mix keeps the recipe effortless, but you could also top the vibrant berry filling with a simple homemade drop biscuit dough as well.
Blueberry-Peach Upside Down Cake
This stunning upside-down cake is the perfect, easy dessert to showcase your bounty of summer fruit. The cake is tender and moist, with just enough of a delightful toothy texture from the incorporation of cornmeal into the batter.
Tahini-Blueberry Sheet Cake With Strawberry Buttercream
Perfect for a graduation party or summer cookout, this impressive dessert offers the ease and crowd-friendly factor that we associate with a sheet cake, as well as a delightful twist of creativity and surprising vibrancy with the incorporation of tahini and fresh berries.
Blueberry Bread Pudding With Lemon Hard Sauce
Pre-made Sara Lee pound cakes are the perfect base for a creamy, decadent bread pudding. Once thawed, we cube and toast the all butter pound cakes in then oven before dressing them up with vanilla custard base, lemon zest, and fresh blueberries.
Red, White, and Blueberry Doughnuts with Tie-Dye Glaze
Pipe out your own doughnuts for a fun Fourth of July treat with fewer calories and grams of fat than any traditional variety. We're using the trendy tie-dye glaze to add a fun patriotic touch to these fluffy bites, but you could keep it simple with a few sprinkles on the glaze.
Blueberry-Lemon Zest Ice Cream
If you like creamy, fruity ice cream with a little bit of zing, you'll love this ice cream dish. Though making homemade ice cream is a labor of love, you'll love this recipe--we guarantee it.
With a buttery, crunch-tastic oat and brown sugar topping partnered with the super simple filling that highlights the best of what ripe berries and stone fruit have to offer, this sweet and satisfying crisp is the ultimate in summer desserts. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a treat no one can resist. The best part about this recipe is that it can be used with most any of your favorite summer fruits. Try substituting plump, juicy peaches for the nectarines and blackberries for the blueberries next time you want to change things up.
Fried Blueberry-Ginger Hand Pies
Fresh ginger (or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger) gives the jammy berry filling a hint of heat. Assemble the pies one day in advance, and refrigerate until you're ready to fry.
Blueberry Pie Sundaes
Hot days call for quick, effortless treats. Go beyond the ice cream scoop with easy yet elegant desserts that take just a few minutes to make. We cook the blueberry mixture down until almost jammy, then fold in fresh berries for a bit of juicy pop in every bite.
Lemonade Blueberry Pops
These popsicles turn a pale pink thanks to a little kitchen chemistry when the blue pigment in the berries meets the acid in the lemonade. You can use any mold you like for these popsicles, but you'll get a different number of pops depending on the mold size.
Vegan Coconut Cream Tart with White Peaches and Blueberries
This nutrient-rich twist on coconut cream pie is lusciously smooth and decadent … it’s also vegan, paleo, gluten-fee, and raw. It’s perfect for a special occasion, especially if you’re looking to clean up your diet a bit.
