Blueberry Lemon Icebox Cake #SummerDessertWeek

*Today's post includes items/ingredients I received from our sponsors. As always, all opinions are my own.

Hello again for round two of this week's delicious treats for #summerdessertweek. Today I continue the blueberry trend and have a recipe for you that is absolutely divine. I am a lover of all things ice box cake. They are scrumptious. They are simple to create. The best part is that the flavor combos you can create are pretty much endless. Today I have made a blueberry lemon ice box cake and I am not sure that anything screams "summer" more than that combination.

When coming up with ideas to incorporate the beautiful blueberries that Rainer Fruit sent us, I knew I wanted to somehow use a blueberry mousse. I was grocery shopping and grabbed one of my favorite breakfast cookies when I noticed they now offered a blueberry version and I knew they would make the perfect crispy cookie layer for my icebox cake and then once I had that part in my head I couldn't think of another flavor that better accentuates blueberries in the summer than lemon. This is a very simple dish to put together and you will win many hearts with this dessert...I kind of promise;)

cookie layer
1 box blueberry breakfast cookies
1/2 cup milk for dipping
blueberry mousse layer
1/2 cup blueberry compote*
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup Dixie Crystals Sugar
1/2 Tsp Adams Best Vanilla
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
lemon mousse layer
2 boxes lemon pudding
12 oz milk
8 oz homemade whipped cream or cool whip

*blueberry compote recipe
1 cup Rainer Fruit Blueberries
3 Tbsp water
3 tbsp Dixie Crystal Sugar
1 tsp Adams Best Vanilla
1 tbsp lemon juice

**Combine all ingredients in sauce pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Once blueberries begin to burst, lower heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until it begins to thicken. Let cool.

Once blueberry compote has cooled, add it to 8 oz of softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat on low till all ingredients are combined thoroughly. Add in the cold whipping cream and increase the speed of your mixer and beat until the mixture becomes thicker and takes on a creamy blueberry texture. Place in fridge until ready to assemble.

In a mixing bowl combine the two pudding packs and add in the milk, whisk until thick. Set in fridge for about 2 or 3 minutes to set. If you are making homemade whipping cream for this, you will need about a cup. I didn't add any sugar to mine bc the pudding has plenty. Once you have your stiff peaks, fold into the pudding mixture. (Or go the easy way and use cool whip, I have done that plenty of times!

Now to assemble.

I used a 9 x 9 but you could just double the recipe and do a 9x 13.

Pour a bowl of milk. Have your blueberry breakfast cookies ready and quickly dip each cookie into the milk before laying on the bottom of the dish. Once you have cookie layer down, spread a layer of the lemon mousse on top and then follow with the blueberry layer. Start again with the cookies and do as many layers as possible. I got 3 layers from mine.

Garnish with lemon slices and blueberries and some fresh whip cream. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
