You are going to love the best Blueberry Desserts recipes, all bursting with ripe, delicious blueberries! Of course, summer blueberry desserts are one of my favorite things about the season, because that’s when the fruit is finally getting ripe. That said, you can make blueberry recipes any time of year, thanks to frozen blueberries!
I love to go blueberry picking during the summer months. There’s nothing like fresh blueberries off the vine. Or actually, it’s more like off the bush. Either way, blueberries are great in so many recipes.
It’s a little bit of work going through the berries once you get home — I like to sort out the best berries to serve fresh and the smaller berries for baking and sauces.
Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite blueberry dessert recipes.
You may think it’s a stretch to call some of these blueberry recipes dessert. You know, things like waffles and muffins. In my book you can serve blueberry waffles any time of day! We can’t pin waffles in a breakfast corner!
So, that makes these some of my favorite blueberry desserts, regardless of the way society may describe them..
Fresh Blueberry Desserts
You can do like me and pick your own fresh blueberries or you can even buy fresh blueberries at a farmer’s market or grocery store. Interestingly enough, you can find blueberry bushes growing all across the United States, but only a few states account for the majority of blueberries sold across the country.
For each of these recipes you can use either frozen or fresh blueberries, based on your preferences and/or the availability of fresh in your area.
I love using fresh blueberries to make this simple blueberry sauce. Make this sauce in a matter of minutes and spread it over a variety of treats, from pancakes, to waffles, to cakes, oatmeal, and more! It’s the perfect light blueberry dessert topping!
This blueberry crumble is nothing short of amazing. First of all, it’s so easy to make. Second, the spices and berries and crumble topping combine for an amazing experience in flavors and texture. It may be the best fresh blueberries dessert ever!
New to Vegan Baking?
The idea of making cookies, cakes or muffins without eggs or dairy can seem like a hill too tall to climb! But with the simple tips in my Guide to Vegan Baking, you’ll be baking like a vegan pro in no time!
Easy Blueberry Desserts
It’s one thing to love berries mixed in with your dessert, but it’s another altogether to have so many easy blueberry desserts with fresh blueberries. Or frozen blueberries. Whatever works best for you based on the time of year. Let’s begin with cake.
What happens if you take a cake and add blueberries? That’s what I thought to myself. The answer? This amazing, delicious blueberry cake! Of course, I’m adding a simple vanilla frosting, but this vegan cream cheese frosting would taste incredible on this cake recipe too!
Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Cake
Vegan yogurt has not always been an easy thing to find, but lately they’ve taken the market by storm. That means making this vegan blueberry lemon yogurt cake is so easy. There’s nothing disappointing about this cake either — it’s tender, moist, and stunningly delicious!
Vegan Cheesecake with Blueberry Sauce
I absolutely love this vegan cheesecake recipe and it’s one of the most popular vegan desserts on the site. Adding blueberry sauce is just a given, since the two go so well together. Of course, some vegan whipped cream on top is a nice touch too!
I love a good berry pie, but sometimes I just don’t have time to do all the crust prep work. That’s where these pie bars come in. With a tasty crust, and rich filling, these blueberry bars are a perfect dessert any day of the week!
Lemon Avocado Cake with Blueberry Topping
There’s no doubt that lemon and blueberries are delicious when paired together. That’s one reason this lemon avocado cake, complete with poppyseeds, is so great when served with blueberry sauce on top.
Of course, there’s a lemon frosting too, just in case you’re wondering if this is sweet enough. Combining lemons and berries is one of the reasons why desserts with blueberries are my favorite!
Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
I know this is an interesting concept but I added dried blueberries to my vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe and the result was nothing short of amazing! I can find dried blueberries at my local grocery store, Target, Sprouts, and even Costco.
I love sharing these chocolate infused blueberry treats with friends and family.
Vegan Pound Cake with Blueberry Sauce
I absolutely love this vegan pound cake recipe. It’s great with fresh fruit, like strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. However, it’s especially good when slices are drizzled with some blueberry syrup. That seriously takes it to another level!
Blueberry Breakfast Desserts
Breakfast for Dessert? Or is it Dessert for Breakfast? There really is a blurring of definitions here. In fact, there is evidence to show that having your dessert for breakfast is healthier. It makes sense because of things like circadian rhythms (our biological clock), we are better equipped to handle sugar better in the early hours of the day.
We all know that breakfast for dinner is a thing, so why not have breakfast for dessert. That’s what I’m thinking. I will also confess to making waffles and/or pancakes and using them as buns for my veggie burgers. Combining sweet and savory is SUCH a game-changer!
So, let’s get to it. Here are some of my favorite breakfast blueberry recipes that can also be used for dessert!
Everyone I know loves blueberry waffles. I mean, if you’re into waffles at all, adding blueberries is sort of a no-brainer. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like blueberry waffles, so I’m leading with this.
The same thing I said about waffles above applies to pancakes as well. If you love a good pancake, then adding blueberries is only the next natural step in the process. These vegan blueberry pancakes are so good, I love making a double batch and freezing them!
Blueberry Overnight Oats
These blueberry overnight oats happens to be one of my favorite breakfast for dessert recipes. I love that overnight oats are loaded with fiber and as a result so healthy. With this recipe, I created a “blueberry almond milk”, stirred that in with the oats and other ingredients and hours later it transforms into a delicious dish.
Serve it for breakfast if you will. It just happen to be one one of my favorite low calorie blueberry desserts!
Vegan Blueberry Muffins
The blueberry muffin must be the quintessential breakfast item. I love making a batch of these vegan blueberry muffins and freezing them. They’re easy to reheat and then we get the flavor of “fresh” blueberry muffins whenever we want one! I love that these muffins are great as is — they don’t need jam or vegan butter or anything!
And because they’re lightly sweet, they make a nice little, bite of dessert after dinner.
It’s true that the blueberry danish is a little time-consuming, however the results are well worth the effort. And every now and then it’s good to stretch out our cooking chops!
Healthy Blueberry Desserts
Any time we think of berry recipes, it’s natural to lean toward healthy desserts. Of course, that’s not always the case. So, if you’re looking for low calorie blueberry recipes, this is for you. Or if you simply want to make your favorite blueberry dessert healthy, I’ve got you covered.
Healthy Blueberry Crumble Bars
Think of the blueberry crumble bar like the the pie bars above, but healthier. That’s because the crust and topping are made with healthy oats. I’ve also made sure the blueberry filling is lightly sweetened.
You can serve healthy blueberry dessert recipes — like these crumble bars — for breakfast, snack, or of course dessert!
Coconut Parfait with Blueberries
I’ll be honest with you, I used to think the parfaits at the DQ was everything I wanted in a dessert. If the DQ ever comes out with a plant-based ice cream, I’ll be there! With all of these restaurants announcing vegan meats, it’s not an impossible idea these days. But until that day, I’ll be making this coconut parfait with peaches and blueberries.
That’s it for my favorite blueberry dessert recipes! Now you know why dessert with blueberries is a go-to favorite. Didn’t see what you’re looking for? Looking for more blueberry dessert ideas? Drop me a line and let me know your favorite blueberry recipes to veganize!
