This easy No Bake Lemonade Pie is cool, creamy and perfect for summer. You can whip up this delicious dessert in just a few minutes!
I am a complete sucker for easy desserts – the easier, the better. And honestly, friends, you can’t get much easier than this pie. Well technically, you could eat a cookie from a bag and call that dessert, but in terms of actually preparing a sweet treat, this one pretty much takes the cake, or rather, pie!
And did I mention that this lemonade pie recipe uses only three ingredients? Yep. And, it’s so easy that even kids can make it, which is fine with me.
I first saw this pie at a church potluck a few years ago, but I had pretty much forgotten about it. But, over the weekend, I found it when I was cleaning off the bookcase because our new puppy thought that my old cookbooks looked very tasty! I have a bad habit of writing things down and sticking scraps of paper in cookbooks. My grandma did the same thing, which is why I’m trying to move these old recipes onto the blog before anything happens to them.
Anyway, like I said, this pie is super easy to make. You just mix the ingredients together, pour them all into a graham cracker pie crust, and smooth the mixture so that it’s nice and even.
Keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat, and that’s it. No muss, no fuss, no bake! The lemon flavor is amazing, and it’s perfect for a hot day.
How to Make No Bake Lemonade Pie
No Bake Lemonade Pie
- 1 pre-cooked graham cracker pie shell
- 1 packet of lemon flavor Kool-Aid
- 1 14- oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 8- oz container of whipped topping like Cool Whip
- In a large mixing bowl, stir the Kool-Aid, milk and whipped topping together
- Pour into the graham cracker pie crust
- Refrigerate until filling is firm
- Top with lemon slices and additional whipped topping if desired
The Kool-Aid is the surprise ingredient here, and that’s why I wanted to make this. Nobody believes it’s made with a drink mix!
Oh, and whatever you do, don’t try to taste the filling until you add the sweetened condensed milk. My daughter and I tried it, and whoa, is that sour!
But, after you add the milk, the pie is just fine.
It’s cool, lemony, smooth and a refreshing end to any summer meal. Of course, it’s perfect for picnics and potlucks too!
