I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!! I know it’s not “officially” summer yet, but the weather here in Missouri has definitely been making me dream of summertime.

Years ago my youngest daughter was going through my recipe box, picking out recipes she wanted us to make (all desserts of course! lol). One of the first recipes she spied was something I scribbled down years before on a piece of scratch paper, and it didn’t even have a name on it…..so we named it……Lemonade Pie! It has since pushed its way to the top of our summer dessert list.

I’m telling you if you want a quick and easy dessert that tastes like summer….. this lemonade pie is it!!

How To Make Lemonade Pie

(full printable recipe at the end of this post)

This cool whip lemon pie takes less than 5 minutes to throw together, then it’s ready for the refrigerator to do all the work.

The hardest part is waiting 4 hours to chill. *hint: licking the bowl is a good way to hold you over until the pie sets! lol

Ingredients for a Simple Lemonade Pie

  • Milk
  • Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • Frozen Lemonade Concentrate, thawed
  • CoolWhip whipped topping
  • Graham Cracker Crust 

Using a large bowl combine milk and pudding mix, and beat with a wire whisk to combine. Add thawed lemonade and whisk together until pudding is thick (about 2 minutes). You can either whisk by hand or use the whisk attachment on an electric mixer

Next, you will fold the Cool Whip into the pudding mixture and pour it into the graham cracker crust. Cover the pie and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or until set. For best results make the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

If you prefer a frozen pie, place the pie in the freezer for 2-3 hours before serving.

Garnish with fresh lemon slices and serve cold or slightly frozen.

Tips For Making The Best Lemonade Pie

For a lower calorie and fat version of this lemonade pie: I will use Fat-Free Sugar-Free pudding mix, 1% milk, and Lite Cool Whip – to make it a little easier on the hips, it still tastes fantastic!

• I’ve made this lemon pie with pink lemonade, and the pie remained yellow.

• Usually I can only find a 12 ounce can of frozen lemonade. The recipe calls for 6 ounces, so I only used 1/2 the can or I make 2 pies!

* Sometimes I put the pie in the freezer for a few hours before serving – we like it frozen or refrigerated – both are delicious. Of course, the refrigerated pie is more creamy while the frozen lemonade pie is….harder.

This Lemonade Icebox Pie is so simple to make and will disappear quickly, you may want to just go ahead and make 2 of them.

I love quick and easy pie recipes and this Mud Pie is on the top of my list.  Easy No Bake Coconut Cream Pie and Crustless Strawberry Pie are just a few more of our favorite simple desserts. And No-Bake Strawberry Dreamsicle Pie just screams summer!
