No-Bake Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie

It combines velvety cream cheese, sweet condensed milk, and frozen lemonade concentrate. The best part? It’s completely no-bake! Just pour the lemon goodness into a graham cracker crust and chill until set.

How to Make Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie

This pie is such an easy, no-fuss treat!

  1. Beat the cream cheese. In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until light and fluffy.

  3. Mix in the flavorings. Mix in the thawed lemonade concentrate, vanilla extract, and salt.
  4. Fold in the topping. Gently fold in the thawed whipped topping until smooth and creamy.
  5. Pour into the crust. Pour the filling into a prepared graham cracker crust and smooth the top.

Tips For the Best Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie

This pie is so easy, but these tips truly make it shine!

  • Soften the cream cheese. Ensure the cream cheese is fully softened to room temperature to avoid lumps in the filling.
  • Be careful with the lemonade. Gradually beat in the thawed lemonade concentrate until fully incorporated with the cream cheese.
  • Switch up the crust. Use Nilla Wafer or even ice cream cone crumbs for a unique twist.
  • Swap the citrus flavors. Substitute the lemonade concentrate with orange juice concentrate or limeade.
  • Add decorative touches. Use a mini offset spatula to smooth the top of the filling and create decorative swirls.

To Store: Cover the pie tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Keep the pie chilled until ready to serve.

To Freeze: Wrap it securely in plastic wrap and aluminum foil for up to 1 month. Keep in mind the texture may change slightly upon thawing.

  1. Hi Kim, I am from the UK and have difficulty finding some of your ingredients when you say Graham crackers are they the same as our Jacob’s cream crackers or can I use a digestive biscuit base instead.
    Many thanks Elizabeth

    • Hi Elizabeth!
      You’ll want to use good old Digestives instead of Graham Crackers.

      In general, 1 standard digestive biscuit weighs about the same as 1 full sheet of graham crackers, which is about 15g.
      But since they soften a lot faster, I suggest using less liquid or more biscuits.

      Here’s the recipe I use for a 9-inch / 23 cm pie dish:

      200 grams digestive crumbs (about 2 cups*; 13–14 standard digestive biscuits)
      1/3 cup (67g) granulated sugar
      6 Tablespoons (85g) unsalted butter, melted

      Mix until moist, then bake for 12–15 minutes at 350°F (177°C).

      *if using Graham Crackers, this would be 1 1/2 cups

      Hope this helps!!
