This recipe was so easy I was able to write it down for a cousin of mine from heart. Simple, easy, and with the yellow cake mix for the crust it was such a delicious desert! Even in how I made it I only put 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries and even with less blueberries it still had the right combination of lemon and blueberries.

Two years ago I tried this recipe and it has been a go to dessert ever since. I have requests to make it all the time, it is my son-in-laws all time favorite dessert as well as 2 of my friends. It is refreshing, with a sweet pop from the blueberry and a tart hint from the lemon. The taste and texture are both heavenly - even to my grandgirl who had texture issues with food. It is easy to make, makes a lot and is a lovely presentation. It does need to be cold for it to taste it's best. I'm making it now as it was requested I take it tomorrow to a 4th of July party.
