Lemon Strawberry Cool Whip Pie
Autumn may be on its way, but it’s not here yet! There’s still time for some delicious tastes of summer–and it’s still ice cream season in my book (It can be ice cream season all year long, as far as I’m concerned!).
This weekend I made a super simple Strawberry Lemonade Freezer Pie…and I think I’m hooked. I love easy summer dessert recipes, and this is one of the easiest of them all. And it’s just as tasty as if I’d slaved all day. Perfect!
Why you’ll love this Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie:
- Light and refreshing: With a citrus kick from lemons and lemonade, and fresh strawberries, no less!
- No-bake: Keep the kitchen cool in the summer with this easy recipe.
- Summer Dessert: A summer favorite that you’ll want all year round.
Frozen Cool Whip Pie Ingredients
- Pie crust – premade graham cracker crust works great.
- Frozen whipped topping – low fat; thawed before mixing.
- Lemonade – canned lemonade concentrate delivers a great, zesty flavor.
- Strawberries – chopped. You can use fresh or frozen.
- Yellow food coloring – optional but pretty!
- Garnish – lemon slices and strawberries.
How to make this Frozen Pie
- Combine strawberries and sugar in a food processor.
- Then, in a mixer, combine thawed whipped topping, lemonade, and sweetened condensed milk and pour the lemonade mixture into the pie crust.
- Then pour the strawberry mix on top.
- Freeze until solid; slice and serve!
What Is a Freezer Pie?
A freezer pie or icebox pie is a delicious classic southern dessert that was named after the ice box where these pies were kept.
They were quick and easy to make, required no cooking in the heat of summer, and could be stored in the icebox until it was served. Iceboxes date back to the 1830s, FYI.
How Long Does Strawberry Lemonade Pie Need to Freeze?
It will depend on your freezer of course, but it’s a good idea to let this pie freeze overnight or at least 8 hours–just to be safe. Return any pie leftovers to the freezer promptly–the pie thaws quickly!
What Type of Crust Works Best?
This pie is not going in the oven, so obviously, you don’t want to use a raw pastry crust. And while you could pre-bake a traditional crust, the lemonade mixture could soak through and make a soggy bottom layer.
Instead, try cookie crumbs or graham cracker crumbs for the crust. You can by pre-made cookie crusts at the grocery store, and I’d suggest a vanilla wafer-flavor or graham cracker variety–but probably not a chocolate cookie crust.

Have you tried this Strawberry Lemonade Freezer Pie? Feel free to leave a star rating and I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
My lemonade layer was way too soft and my strawberry flavor was frozen rock hard. I let it thaw 5 minutes from taking it out of the freezer to slicing and serving it. When you tried to cut a bite with a fork, the hard top layer squished out the soft lemonade layer to the sides so you couldn’t get a nice, whole bite. The layers tasted good as I was making it, so maybe next time I’ll put the strawberry on the bottom and lemonade on top.
I’m sorry to hear this recipe didn’t work out as planned, Mandi!
My pie never set up, after 8 hours in the freezer. I served “soup” and was horribly embarrassed. The flavor was good but the presentation was abysmal. Yes, it served it straight out of the freezer.
I’m so sorry to hear that, Deborah! Freezer temperatures can vary, so it may be best to let it freeze for a full 24 hours next time!
Have you looked at the ingredients on Cool Whip?? Fortunately there are other whips with better ingredients.
Substitute to your liking!
I used to make this recipe a long time ago and it always made 2 delicious pies. Thanks for reminding me about this recipe. However, my only problem today is that I can’t find frozen lemonade concentrate any more. I’ve tried both Kroger and WalMart. Any suggestions for substitutions and how much to add? Thank you.
Oh man! I haven’t made my own lemonade concentrate yet so I am not entirely sure!
Do you add water to the lemonade concentrate or just use the concentrate as is?
Leave the concentrate as is :)
I just wondered how long you can leave it in the freezer, I ended up with two for some reason and we won’t go through two tonight. Will it keep for awhile?
It should be fine for at least a month if properly stored in the freezer. You just want to avoid freezer burn. Hope you love it!
Easy to make pie that sounds and looks yummy.
This pie looks absolutely amazing! I think it would go well during any season. I’m allergic to a few food items so the only thing I’d change is the crust. I would use an almond crust like my mom uses for her cherry cream cheese pie.
Love an almond crust! Hope you love the recipe :)
Hello, can I replace the lemonade can with natural lemonade? We don’t have that product in my area. Thanks!
Yes you should be able to! It should work just fine. Hope you love it!!
this is a yummy pie for summer. I love a sweet tart fruit pie. But please this will make 2 so get 2 crusts. First time I made it I put the other half in serving size dishes and put them in the freezer, too yum!
