So, check out these delightful frozen desserts that are as easy as, well… pie.

20+ Best Ice Cream Pie Recipes To Beat the Heat

1. Oreo Ice Cream Pie 

Gather around Oreo fanatics because I’ve got one helluva treat for you!

If you can’t get enough of cookies and cream, this Oreo ice cream pie is sure to curb all of your cravings.

It has an Oreo crust, Oreo-infused vanilla ice cream, and even more Oreos on top. 

There’s even a hidden cookie crumb layer sandwiched in between to pack even more cookie deliciousness!

What more could you ask for?

2. S’mores Ice Cream Pie 

You don’t need a roaring fire to indulge in this classic campfire treat. 

It captures the essence of s’mores with a crushed Graham Cracker crust, chocolate ice cream, and tons of toasted marshmallows. 

You can use the broiler to toast the marshmallows. But then, who doesn’t love a reason to bust out the blow torch?

3. Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Pie

This peanut butter cup ice cream pie is a peanut butter lover’s dream come true. 

The nutty ice cream gets a punch of extra creaminess from whipped cream. The chocolatey Oreo crust perfectly contrasts that yummy and light filling.

Make your own or save time and buy one. Either way, everyone will love it.

Of course, what makes this pie so addictive is the pile of peanut butter cups and the generous drizzle of hot fudge on top. 

4. Coffee Ice Cream Pie with Oreo Crust 

Iced coffee in pie form. Yes, please!

This sweet treat layers slightly 1melted coffee ice cream in a rich chocolatey crust. But it doesn’t stop there

To make it extra delish, use Kahula-infused whipped cream and garnish with espresso beans. 

5. Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Pie 

Trust me; this chocolate cherry pie tastes as delicious as it looks. 

The filling is lightly sweet with a punch of rich dark chocolate flavors. And it’s full of maraschino cherries and their juice.

For an added cherry punch, use Nestle Toll House DelightFulls, (dark chocolate cherry).

They’re filled chocolate chips that bring twice the sweet goodness to your recipes.

6. Strawberry Ice Cream Pie 

Between the buttery walnuts and warm cinnamon in the crust, this is one extravagant pie!

Top that with strawberry ice cream and fresh sliced strawberries on top, and it’s pretty in pink and ready to party.

But can you guess what makes this classic strawberry ice cream pie so unique?

Here’s the secret: you’ll finish it with a sweet, tart balsamic glaze. This pie is a must-try for summer. 

7. Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

Classic fall flavors get a summertime makeover in this tasty recipe.

Vanilla ice cream infused with rich cinnamon and pumpkin puree spices is the ice cream pie you never knew you needed. 

It’s like grandma’s pumpkin pie in ice cream form.

And it’s an excellent option for a late summer treat when you just can’t wait for pumpkin spice season to commence!

8. Mini Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie 

With only a few kitchen staples, you can whip up an incredibly addictive dessert without much effort. 

What makes this recipe unique lies in the crust.

Instead of plain old Graham Crackers, you’ll incorporate mini chocolate chips to ensure every bite brings chocolatey goodness. 

Like the sound of that? Good, because it’s on the top, too, for an extra crunchy finish.

9. Twix Ice Cream Pie 

Birthday cake is great and all, but why not try a fun birthday cake alternative instead?

For example, the next time someone’s birthday rolls around, skip the cake and try this celebratory Twix ice cream pie instead. 

Full of incredible caramel and chocolatey goodness, it’s to die for.

For added indulgence, pour caramel syrup into the bottom of the crust before piling in ice cream. 

And while the recipe calls for crushed Graham Crackers, I suggest making a shortbread base for the full Twix effect.

10. Lemon Ice Cream Pie 

After this lemon ice cream pie, you’ll never look at lemon meringue pie the same way again. 

The trick to this impossibly lemony pie lies in the filling. It’s light and refreshing with cream cheese, lemon pudding, cream, and lemon zest. 

Plus, the base is made of lemon Oreos for a creamy and citrusy kick. Delicious!

11. Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Crust 

Chocolate and bananas is the ultimate pairing.

And it doesn’t get much better than chocolate and banana ice cream pie with a peanut butter crust!

While it may sound intimidating, it’s surprisingly easy. And you don’t even need to make special cookies.

Just add peanut butter and honey to crushed Graham Crackers.

Then, pair chocolate ice cream with ripe mashed bananas, and garnish with whipped cream and sliced bananas. 

It’s like a chocolate-covered banana, only better. 

12. Caramel Toffee Ice Cream Pie 

Who’s ready for homemade ice cream?

This caramel and toffee-infused frozen pie is so creamy and delicious that it’s sure to be a hit at your next potluck. 

Instead of store-bought ice cream, this pie calls for something homemade.

The frozen filling infuses pudding-heavy cream and hidden chunks of toffee pieces. Wow!

For even more caramel flavors, top your frozen pie with more toffee chunks and a heavy drizzle of caramel sauce. 

13. Homemade Turtle Ice Cream Pie 

There is so much going on inside this amazing frozen pie.

From the nuts and caramel to the chocolate and cookie crust, there’s something everyone will love. 

Use crushed sandwich cookies for the base (Oreos are a fantastic choice), and fill it with creamy vanilla ice cream. 

Pretty standard so far.

The impressive toppings are where this pie shines. Once frozen, top it with roasted pecans, chocolate, whipped cream, and tons of gooey caramel. 

14. Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream Pie 

If you can’t get enough pecans, this caramel and butter pecan ice cream pie is sure to be a big hit. 

Even the pie crust is made using crushed pecan Sandies, so it’s like one giant cookie. 

Filled with butter pecan ice cream and topped with caramel and whipped cream, it’s so simple and delicious. 

15. Sprinkle Ice Cream Pie Recipe With Rice Krispie Crust 

This fun celebration pie is perfect for little ones or the young at heart. 

What makes it so special? Well, it’s got a sticky Rice Krispie crust!

Yes, you heard me right – a Rice Krispie crust!

Fill it with creamy vanilla ice cream and top with rainbow sprinkles for a super easy pie that’s perfect for birthday parties. 

16. Blueberry Ice Cream Pie 

No fruit pie is complete without a scoop of ice cream. So, why not combine the two and save a step?

While most ice cream pies utilize a basic Graham Cracker or cookie crust, this one calls for a classic buttery pie crust.

You’ll fill it with bright blueberry ice cream that’s stunning in blue.

And then, you’ll top it off with that sensational lattice. (You’ll make and cook that separately and place it on top to serve.)

Fire up your Instagram! This gorgeous blueberry ice cream pie demands photos from every angle.

17. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie 

Mint chocolate chip is one of my all-time favorite ice cream flavors. So, just looking at this pie made me do a little happy dance. 

The simple Oreo crumb crust and whipped cream toppings allow the rich mint chocolate chip ice cream to shine. 

It’s a great recipe to serve up on St Patrick’s day when you need a green dessert. But it’s tasty any day of the week.

18. Fudge Topped Chocolate Ice Cream Pie 

Chocolate lovers, rejoice!

Every inch of this chocolate ice cream pie packs a powerful chocolatey punch that is only for die-hard chocolate fans. 

It mixes double chocolate fudge ice cream with a kick of alcohol to take those rich fudgy flavors to the next level. 

With a punch of brandy and Kahula, it’s not for the faint of heart (or the little ones). 

19. Drumstick Ice Cream Pie 

With this pie, you’ll never need to chase down the ice cream truck again!

Drumsticks are the ultimate summer treat, and this inventive pie perfectly captures the essence of this classic summer treat. 

It has a crushed sugar cone crust, velvety vanilla ice cream, and infuses plenty of peanuts and nuts. Yummy!

20. Brownie Bottom Ice Cream Pie 

If you like ice cream with as many toppings as possible, this is the pie for you!

It looks super messy in the best possible way and includes all the classic ice cream sundae toppings.

You’ve got pretzels, fresh fruit, peanuts, syrup, candies, and tons of sprinkles. 

Oh, and there’s a heavenly brownie batter crust that makes it even more irresistible.

21. Banana Split Ice Cream Pie 

Crafting banana splits to serve a crowd is time-consuming. But if you’re still set on those flavors, why not make this banana split pie instead?

It has a chocolatey Oreo crust and a layer of fresh bananas, chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla ice cream. 

It’s the perfect way to end a summer BBQ. Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream and plenty of bright sprinkles.

22. Chubby Hubby Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie with a Pretzel Pie Crust 

If you’re craving Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby, but don’t want to make a trip to the store, try this simple and delicious ice cream pie!

Made with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, peanuts, and whipped cream, the filling tastes just like the classic Ben and Jerry’s flavor.

With a sweet and salty pretzel, chocolate, and peanut butter base, it’s hard to stop at one slice.

23. “Fried” Ice Cream Pie 

Fried ice cream is often served at Mexican restaurants and is downright magical.

This pie takes everything you love about the post-taco treat and turns it into a tasty pie. 

It has a base of toasted corn flakes and cashews that’s intensely buttery and delicious. 

Meanwhile, the vanilla ice cream is creamy with plenty of whipped cream and cinnamon.

24. Vanilla Ice Cream Pie 

Don’t let anyone tell you that vanilla ice cream is boring. On the contrary, it’s sweet, warm, and super complex – when you get the good stuff, of course.

This vanilla ice cream pie is anything but one note.

It has a crust made from rolled oats and pumpkin seeds for some wonderful nutty and crunchy flavors.

Then, you’ll top it off with fresh summer fruit to brighten the whole thing up.

Use whatever is in season, but I recommend grilled peaches during the summer.

25. Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

What’s more refreshing than strawberry lemonade on a hot day? Strawberry lemonade ice cream pie! 

While it includes simple strawberry ice cream, the secret ingredient lies in a can of thawed pink lemonade concentrate. 

This brings a wallop of sweet and tart flavors the kids will go nuts for.
