Recipe by Midwest Maven
This is a very light pie with a mousse-like texture, perfect for a summer bbq or party. It is made with fresh blueberries and lite ingredients, but is definitely not lite on flavor. Make this pie as an easy, delicious, and refreshing end to a great meal! **(times do not include chilling times)**

Pretty much followed the recipe, except that I used frozen blueberries that I had & didn't keep any for the top of the pie! Still, this recipe made for A REALLY DELICIOUS PIE, which was most appreciated by my son & his wife, who managed to talk me out of half of it when they came by! Thanks mush for posting it!
