This is a super-easy and quick recipe I got from my mother-in-law. No cooking, no baking, just mixing and it's set! Everyone will think you spent hours making the creamy and luscious filling.

Cook's Note:

This has a strong fruity flavor as well as plenty of sweetness. If you want to cut down on either one, just add half the packet of drink mix for less fruitiness, or half the can of condensed milk for less sweetness.

I had intended to make this a Strawberry Pie however my Strawberry Kool Aid disappeared somewhere after checking out at the Super Market. All I had at home was a package of Kool Aid Lemonade so I thought what the heck I'm going to give this a shot. Let me tell you not only is this pie super easy and fool proof it is also very tasty. Give it a try you will be quite surprised. Read More

Tasted a little to much like Kool Aid for me. Yes I guess I should have expected that. Just didn't quite have the taste I wanted. That said I did enjoy eating it and I may try again with a different flavor someday Read More

This is slightly different from my childhood favorite which was made with evaporated milk and frozen. This one is much easier (which earned the 5 stars) and could be so much fun in the various Kool-Aid flavors/colors. Read More

I love making this pie but I also add one 8oz package of cream cheese and I use the extra creamy cool whip to make it stand higher in the graham cracker crust. Also try using two packs of orange kool-Aid and your pie will taste like a dreamsicle popsicle. I made them for Thanksgiving this year and they were gone in the blink of an eye. Read More

This is very similar to my mom's Kool-Aid pie which her's entails different proportions same ingredients. However do try something less different when you use the unsweetened packages. What a great refresher when I used the Peach Mango flavored Kool-Aid (use the entire packet). Easy and excellent recipe...best recommendation FREEZE it for a few hours to get a better handle of even slicing and serving it will thaw slightly on the plate and still get that great creaminess. Besides we like it best frozen!!! Read More

Super easy and a nice treat. We made grape which wasn't my favorite but it was what the hunny picked. He suggested next time to start with half a packet of koolaid and then add a little bit at a time as it was a little overwhelmingly grapey Read More

I made this pie today and I must say it is absolutely wonderful not to mention how simple it is to make. I used a package of lemonade kool-aid this time and can't wait to try other flavors. Thanks for sharing your recipe blue. Read More

A friend of mine taught me this recipe in the military 28 years ago in the mini graham cracker cups when we lived in the barracks and could not have a lot of groceries and did not have cars to go anywhere:-). I still make it today using the individual crusts (they come with little tops). An entire pie is too enticing and I only use lemonade. Glad to see this recipe on here it brought back memories.....

The recipe above was so SWEET it made me squint! For the next pie, I reduced the sweetened condensed milk by nearly half and substituted about 3 oz. of fat-free unsweetened condensed milk and about 4 oz. of additional whipped topping. The result was a much better pie. I recommend using the extra creamy topping and freezing the pie as well. For both the strawberry and lemon versions, top with sliced strawberries which freeze well and draw sweetness from the filling. This pie is a real surprise. The fruit flavors seem far more authentic thus than in the Kool-aid itself (which I don't much like). Read More

This was by far the easiest dessert I have ever made. My 7 year-old loved it so much and because she heard me say how easy it was she made one herself. Her pie was just as delicious as mine. If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would. We both made lemonade pies. Read More
