I could have titled this "The Best Spring Dessert Ever" or "Tasty Easter Dessert" or "The Easiest Dessert Ever", because it's all of those things!  Actually, around our house, Pink Lemonade Pie is my husband's favorite dessert so we have it year round for holidays, his birthday, or as a quick dessert to make a week night just a bit more special.  I learned to make it from his Mom shortly after we got married, and have been making it for almost 23 years ever since!

This is so easy it doesn't even need an explanation, but I snapped a few pictures during the process anyway.  If you can dump and stir, you've got yourself a scrumptious dessert that everyone will love.


1 ready made 9" graham cracker pie crust
1 8 oz. tub Extra Creamy Cool Whip
1 12 oz. can frozen pink lemonade concentrate (only 6 oz. needed)
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
red food coloring (optional)

A few notes about the ingredients... you can use regular Cool Whip, but the Extra Creamy helps the pie set up better.   Only use 1/2 of the can of lemonade (or just a splash extra for a bit more tang).  If you can find a 6 oz. can, great!  I just never see that size in the store anymore.  My kids are always happy to drink the leftovers when I mix it up.  If you want your pie to really appear pink, you'll need to add a few drops of red food coloring, but that is totally optional.

Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl, and stir with a whisk until well combined.

Pour mixture into pie crust.

Spread filling and smooth out top.

Replace lid and chill for a few hours or overnight.  Pie can be chilled in the freezer or refrigerator, but I usually put it in the freezer.  It really firms up well but can still be easily sliced when ready to serve.

Would you like to comment?

  1. Love this pie! I have been making for over 25 years, recipe from a southern church cookbook.

    1. This one definitely stands the test of time! :) (Church cookbooks are the best!)

  2. Thanks for this easy pie recipe. I've been cooking for longer than you've been around and never made this recipe (don't know where I've been :-) but have never seen it. And I have plenty of church recipes and community favorites recipes cookbooks.
    I'm gonna try this out-it looks yummy!

    1. Oh YAY!! I felt like this is such a simple recipe that's been around forever that everyone might already know about it, but I'm finding it's a new one for quite a few people! Hope you enjoy it Wrenda!

  3. I've been making this pie for years. I always make two at a time, so that I can split the can of frozen lemonade between the two. This is a summer staple for us, so we never mind having an extra pie waiting in the freezer.

    1. Well, good idea to just make two and have an extra on hand!

  4. This looks and sounds delicious! I plan on trying it. Thank you so much for sharing and Happy Easter!


  5. I've made this pie for years but never with pink lemonade. I took one to my family's Christmas dinner because lemon is always in season. Sometimes I make it with homemade graham cracker crumbs and add a packet or two of the True Lemon brand dehydrated lemon for extra tartness. Thanks for the tip about the creamy cool whip.

  6. Looks and sounds delicious! I will make this for Easter! Thanks so much and I want to try your lemon squares too!

  7. Love this idea----will make it soon despite the chocolate thing my grandkids have. We will love it!
