  • 25 chocolate sandwich cookies for crust (1 ½ cups crushed cookies)

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

  • 3 cups fresh Oregon blueberries

  • Zest of one lemon

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 packet of gelatin

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 11-ounce can sweetened condensed coconut milk

  • 1 8-ounce package Cream cheese

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar

  • ½ cup fresh blueberries for garnish

  • 3 or 4 chocolate cookies for garnish

  • Fresh mint for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a food processor, pulse the cookies until finely crushed.
  • Stir the melted butter into the crushed cookies.
  • Press the cookie mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch deep dish pie plate.
  • Place the pie plate in the oven and bake the crust for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the crust cool.
  • Blend 3 cups blueberries in a blender.
  • Add pureed blueberries and zest of one lemon to a medium size pot and heat over medium low heat just until heated through.
  • Then sprinkle the gelatin into the lemon juice and stir to combine.
  • Pour the gelatin lemon juice into the hot blueberries and stir.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • In an electric mixer whip 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks. Transfer to a cold mixing bowl.
  • Using the same electric mixer bowl, no need to clean it, whisk together the sweetened condensed coconut milk and cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  • Fold the cooled blueberries into the cream cheese mixture and then fold in the whipped cream.
  • Pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust.
  • Place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Placing it in the freezer will give it a firmer texture.
  • Once the pie is firm, whip 1 cup of heavy cream with ¼ cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie and garnish with additional fresh Oregon blueberries, chocolate cookie crumbs and fresh mint.
