Craving blueberry pie but don't want to take all that time and effort?
This simple deconstructed Blueberry Pie Sundae is a deliciously simple low fat substitute for those blueberry pie cravings requiring a lot less time and effort than traditional blueberry pie.
The blueberry mixture is cooked on the stove and thickened until it's very jammy.

A family-favorite dessert that couldn't be easier or more delicious!

The blueberry sauce can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If refrigerated, just add to a microwave -safe bowl and heat on high for about 90 seconds, or until warm. Be sure to stop and stir the mixture every 30 seconds to prevent any burning.
Ways to Use Leftovers
If you have some blueberry mixture leftover, you can enjoy it:
- in your breakfast smoothie or protein shake
- smeared on a toasted English muffin
- as a topping for light & healthy pancakes
- stirred in with some nonfat Greek yogurt and topped with a few spoonfuls of granola for a tasty healthy yogurt fruit parfait
- added to mini filo shells and heated in the oven, or toaster oven, for some mini blueberry tarts
