Mini No Bake Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid Pies

Kool-Aid Pie

While Kool-Aid isn't something I'd normally use in baking, I love that Walmart always challenges me to think outside the box. I considered using it to color my simple salt dough in a rainbow of shades, but then I stumbled onto a Kool-Aid pie recipe...

Kool-Aid pie? That's right! And it's so super easy to make that the kids can throw this together entirely by themselves. Simply choose your favorite store bought pie crust, and fill it with a mixture of your favorite Kool-Aid flavor, sweetened condensed milk, and Cool Whip topping.

Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid

We chose to flavor our Kool-Aid pie with the pink lemonade flavor, but as I mentioned, you can use any flavor you prefer. We loved the tangy lemon filling this created, but I also love the vibrant pink shade that Kool-Aid cherry mix provides.

Mini Kool-Aid Pie

The recipe makes enough filling for a 9-inch pie crust, but I fell in love with these adorable little Keebler mini graham cracker crusts that stumbled across at Walmart. Since I'm a total fail at getting that first slice of pie to come out in one piece, I love that these provide cute little pre-portioned servings. The recipe provided just enough for two packages of six, for a total of 12 mini Kool-Aid pies.

No Bake Kool-Aid Pie

Refrigerate the pies for at least two hours (or freeze for an ice cream-like pie), and top with a dollop of homemade whipped cream for a cool summer treat!

Mini No Bake Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid Pies

Yield: 1 9-inch pie or 12 mini pies

Mini No Bake Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid Pies


  • 1 package Kool-Aid (any flavor)
  • 1 8-oz. container Cool Whip
  • 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 9-inch graham store bought crust or 12 mini graham cracker crusts
  • homemade whipped cream (optional)


  1. Whisk together the Kool-Aid flavor of your choice with the sweetened condensed milk.
  2. Gently fold in Cool Whip a little at a time until completely incorporated.
  3. Spoon filling mixture into pie crust and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. Alternately, you could freeze it for a more ice cream-like texture.
  4. Serve with homemade whipped cream.

Those look yummy! I’ll have to remember this next time I need to take a treat to a party. I bet a couple of these made in the big pie size would go over well.

I hope you all realize you are putting in 625 calories for an 8 oz container of Cool Whip! There are 25 servings @ 25 calories each which is 25 X 25 = 625 calories. And, the 14 oz can of sweetened condensed has 1,717 calories in it of which 1,164 calories is pure SUGAR! Do you really think this is a great idea for anyone?

It’s definitely not a healthy treat, Linda, but I’m okay with an occasional splurge.
