Kool Aid Pie Recipe
This is the perfect fun dessert you can make in a few minutes. The hardest part of this no bake pie recipe is waiting for it to set in the refrigerator.
I am a huge fan of no bake desserts. When we first built our house our air conditioning system went out in the middle of the summer. It was 90+ degrees in Spokane and our brand new house had no air conditioning. There was no way I was going to turn on the stove or do anything that might heat up the house.
Enter in all the delicious no-bake desserts I could think to make. I know it is bad to stress bake or eat but when your brand new house is falling apart there are days you need a no bake pie in your life.
Thankfully the warranty company sent someone out to fix the air conditioner pretty quicky. Can you believe they forgot to put freon into the system so there was no chemical to help the system run.
Now we have air conditioning thankfully but I am still madly in love with this Cherry No Bake Kool Aid Pie.
- Kool-Aid Drink Mix
- Cool Whip
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Graham Cracker Crust
Toppings - Whipped Cream, cherries, sprinkles, strawberries, oranges, or any fun toppings.
Kool-Aid - You can make this with any flavor Kool-Aid you enjoy. We made cherry since we still had some in the house from making Kool-Aid Pickles.
Graham Cracker Crust - You can use a homemade graham cracker crust or save time and use a store-bought premade crust. You could even use a pie crust for this pie if you want a different flavor for the crust.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter. Make sure you use a large enough bowl to have space for all the ingredients
Whisk/Spatula - You can use a whisk or spatula to mix all of the ingredients together.
Pie Server - a pie server makes it easier to serve this fun Cherry Kool-Aid Pie.
You can use either a canned whipped topping or homemade whip cream.
If you want to get adventurous with flavors Amazon has a pack of 22 different Kool-Aid Drink Mix Flavors.
You can easily make this no-bake Kool Aid Pie the day before you need to serve it. Just leave off any toppings until right before you serve it. I would make sure there are no onions or other strong flavors in the fridge just in case. LOL! You don't want the pie to take on any extra flavoring.
If you want to add even more flavor your can fold in fruit pieces into your kool-aid pie mixture. A great option would be strawberries mixed into a Strawberry kool-aid pie, or blueberries, or cherries, or really any fruit you love.
If you are not a fan of graham cracker crusts you can get adventurous and use an Oreo Crust.
