Blueberry white chocolate tart is a delicious no-bake dessert. Summer at its best!

With Independence Day just around the corner, I should be thinking of all the patriotic-themed foods I should be making. But since my son’s birthday also happens to fall on July 4th, all I’m worried about is how we’re going to make the day special.

Granted, he’s only turning 3, so special is an easy task and usually involves bubbles. The house we’re building is very close to where our town sets off fireworks, so we’re planning to hang out at the pond across the street and see what the view is like. Our festive meal will actually be very simple, with picnic fare and frozen custard.

But, if I were hosting a big ol’ party? This blueberry white chocolate tart would definitely be the star of the dessert table.

This no bake crust uses almonds, graham crackers, and coconut oil for a lightly sweet and nutty taste.

You know I love blueberries and white chocolate together — these blueberry white chocolate cookies are a top recipe here. There’s just something about the way blueberries and white chocolate taste together. It’s sort of like how great peanut butter and milk chocolate are when paired up, in my opinion.

This tart uses a no-bake crust, so you can make it in advance and just keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. I’ve chosen to use coconut oil rather than butter, but feel free to use butter if you like.

Mixed with the white chocolate is mascarpone cheese for a creamy, sweet filling. I like to make my own mascarpone to use for recipes, such as my mascarpone pancakes, but you can just as easily purchase it at the store.

Mascarpone is usually found among the “fancy” cheeses at the grocery store, or sometimes with the cream cheese or ricotta. Cream cheese will do if you can’t find mascarpone, but I highly recommend seeking it out!

Feel free to change up the fruit for this tart. Try raspberries, strawberries, or a mixture of your favorites. This would also be fantastic with roasted peaches, especially with the honey drizzled on top.

  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips in 20-second intervals, stirring after each time, until completely melted and smooth. Let cool 5-10 minutes.
  4. Whisk mascarpone cheese into the melted chocolate until completely smooth.
  5. Remove tart pan from refrigerator and pour in cheese mixture, spreading evenly.
  6. Arrange blueberries on top of cheese mixture.

  1. Blueberries? White Chocolate? Mascarpone????? Sign me up for a BIG slice. This sounds amazing!!!
    P.S. Happy #3 to your sweet boy!!!

  2. Beautiful pie, and i’m a fan of your no-bake crust! How perfect for the hot hot summer! Happy pre-birthday to your little one! xo

  3. There is absolutely nothing about this that I don’t LOVE! So beautiful and adding white chocolate to the mascarpone is brilliant. I make a similar raspberry-topped tart, but these blueberries are stunning. Perfection!

  4. I’m always on the look-out for no-bake desserts during the summer and this one is definitely a winner. Please tell your son that it may be tough having a birthday on July 4th, but he should think of the fireworks and other celebrations as all for him.

  5. Does the white chocolate/mascarpone mixture harden or stay creamy like cheesecake texture? Curious because I thought it would be cheesecake texture, but it has hardened in the fridge. Sure it will be delicious either way!
