Super healthy blueberries star in this family-favorite dessert. Can't find fresh blueberries? Frozen work just as well. —Michele Raines, Lyndonville, New York

    Excellent dessert. I love the shortcake like crust. It's the best of all my favorite desserts combined.

    Can these be made a day ahead of time, or is it better to make them the day of?

    How much cream did you whip?  I don't like to use those "edible oil products".

    Neufchatel is typically labeled "Light Cream Cheese" & found in the dairy section right next to the regular cream cheese.

    Sounds delicious. I've never seen neufchatel cheese where I live (don't even know what it is!). What can I use as a substitute?

    I halved this recipe thinking I didn't need much for the potluck I was taking it to, but afterwards it was comletely gone. I whipped sweetened heavy cream instead of using cool whip and it was delicious!

    I've made this recipe numerous times, and every time I make it everyone just loves it and can't get enough! It's also very refreshing. When I make it I use reduced fat in the cream cheese and the cool whip.Thank-you for sharing this one!Meta
