Bright, colorful, and fluffy, a Kool-Aid pie is such an easy no-bake treat. This creamy dessert only needs a few simple ingredients and a few hours in the fridge to create a light, cloud-like confection that you will love to dig into.

Kool-Aid Pie Ingredients

Kool Aid Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (0.14-ounce) packet of strawberry flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) container extra creamy Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (6-ounce) pre-made graham cracker pie crust
  • Fresh strawberries, optional garnish

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

KOOL-AID: I made this delicious pie with strawberry-flavored Kool-Aid, but you can use any Kool-Aid flavors you prefer. You can also choose a flavor that would coordinate with a party theme color as well. The possibilities and colors are endless. Try black cherry, pink lemonade, or blue raspberry lemonade for a few great options.

FRUIT: If you choose to use a different fruit flavor for this easy recipe, you would also want to coordinate your fruit garnish with your flavor choice.

COOL WHIP: I like the rich creaminess that the extra creamy Cool Whip whipped topping gives this pie. However, you can substitute original, or even low-fat, Cool Whip whipped topping very easily in this recipe.

CRUST: I used a traditional premade graham cracker crust, but an Oreo cookie crust, or one of the premade nut crusts, would be very tasty with the strawberry flavored Kool-Aid pie as well. You could even make your own graham cracker crust if you have a favorite recipe.

How to Make This Kool-Aid Pie Recipe

STEP ONE: In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk and strawberry flavored Kool-Aid powder until all the Kool-Aid powder has been dissolved into the sweetened condensed milk and you have a bright pink mixture.

If you have strawberries hanging out in your fridge, you could mix a few diced strawberries into your Kool-Aid and Cool Whip mixture.

STEP TWO: Gently fold the entire container of thawed extra creamy Cool Whip whipped topping into the sweetened condensed milk mixture until no white streaks remain from the whipped topping. You should have a beautiful light pink Kool-Aid pie filling.

STEP THREE: Remove the plastic insert from the premade graham cracker crust and fill the crust with the Kool-Aid filling. Smooth the top and cover the pie.

STEP FOUR: Chill your strawberry Kool-Aid pie for 4 to 6 hours or up to overnight. 

PRO TIP:

This no-bake pie does take a while to set, so ensure that you give yourself a good 4 to 6 hours before you want to enjoy it. You can garnish the top of the pie with fresh strawberries if desired before slicing and serving. 

How To Serve

This sweet treat is a delight to look at and divine to eat. There is already whipped cream on top, but what about adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the side of the plate for an extra indulgent treat?

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store leftovers of your Kool-Aid pie in the refrigerator for up to 7 days with the plastic lid on it.

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the pie, without the Cool Whip and strawberry garnish, for up to 1 month. Allow the pie to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving. If you are using the plastic cover from the graham cracker crust and freezing the pie, tightly wrap the pie with the plastic lid in a layer of aluminum foil.

I am a huge fan of no-bake desserts, and this one is a winner in my books. Adding your favorite drink crystals to a creamy pie is a great way to add plenty of sweetness and create a refreshing treat that everyone will enjoy.
