I found this in a back issue of a magazine. It sounds incredible and I had to type it up!

This was fabulous! I was excited to have found reasonably priced blueberries at this time of year, and this was the perfect recipe to use them in. I used low fat cream cheese instead of regular and skim milk instead of half-and-half to cut some of the fat. It turned out great! It was even better the second day. I will be making this often.
