Try these cool and creamy icebox pie recipes the next time you need dessert on a hot day.
Sweet, light, and scrummy, they’re ideal for BBQs and parties.
There’s some debate about what makes a real icebox pie or cake.
Some people think they have to be no-bake (including the crust), while others think they’re desserts you keep in the icebox until you’re ready to serve.
I’m in the latter camp, which is why this list of icebox pie recipes has some elements that need baking.
And FYI: an icebox is just an old-fashioned word for the fridge!
15+ Icebox Pies to Beat the Summer Heat
Silky and luscious with such a phenomenal taste, this chocolate icebox pie is too good for words.
The only baking you’ll have to do is for the crust. Though if you use a pre-made crust, you won’t even have to do that!
Everything else is just mixing, stirring, and refrigerating, so it’s super simple. Minus the chill time, you should have it ready in 40 minutes or less.
If decadent chocolate pies are your thing, you’ll love it.
Are you in the mood for something tart and tangy? If so, try this lemon icebox pie with fluffy marshmallow meringue!
It’s ridiculously tasty, but I should mention – it’s not no-bake.
So again, unless you use a ready-made pie crust, you’ll need to bake the cracker crumb. And then, the whole pie bakes to set the filling.
Luckily, it’s more than worth it!
Oh, and the marshmallow and egg white meringue is genius. So light and sweet, yet it doesn’t weep in the fridge like some recipes do.
Okay, here’s the deal. I could describe just about every pie on this list as “silky and luscious”.
But that would get boring fast. So, from here on out, just assume all these pies are silky and luscious 😉
Now, back to this blackberry icebox pie recipe!
In addition to the swoon-worthy texture, it also features a gorgeous purple color. And the bright blackberry flavor is out of this world.
It takes a little work to prepare, but it’s well worth it.
If you want the quintessential summer dessert, start with this blackberry icebox pie. You won’t be disappointed.
For those who prefer strawberries to blackberries, try this lovely pink, sweet-n-tangy pie with real strawberries.
It’s much easier to make than the blackberry one above – you’ll start with a pre-made crust, which cuts the prep down by almost an hour!
Just remember, it needs a couple of hours in the freezer, so don’t wait until the last minute.
While we’re on berries, let’s go ahead and talk about this stunning blueberry icebox pie.
Ready in just over 30 minutes, it’s bright, creamy, and totally berry-licious.
As the name suggests, this fruity pie tastes like a million bucks!
The filling is a quick blend of cream cheese, condensed milk, and lemon juice. So it’s rich, creamy, and just a little tangy.
To that, you’ll add crushed pineapple, chopped cherries, and pecans, along with Cool Whip, to keep things light and fluffy.
Every bite is full of fun textures and tropical flavor. And it’s extra scrummy with mandarin segments fanned over the top.
So many of these tasty pies are tart and tangy. But this coconut cream pie is sweet and tropical all the way through.
Between the coconut pudding and coconut flakes, every bite is better than the last.
That said, you could make it even more coconutty with whipped coconut cream on top rather than heavy cream.
This particular pie still has the same silky texture as most icebox pies.
However, the ganache, Graham Cracker crust, and peanut butter make it slightly different.
It has more crunch, for one thing. Also, the peanut butter makes it thicker and less airy than other options on the list.
It’s super sweet and ultra-rich, but that’s what makes it so darn good.
Any peanut butter and chocolate lover will go nuts for it.
Calling for just six ingredients and about half an hour, this Oreo icebox pie is a must-make.
The marshmallow filling is perfectly sweet and a cinch to make. And it pairs really well with the Oreo crumb crust.
Of course, you could modify this and use different flavored Oreos for fun! For example, try it with golden, mint, or strawberry cheesecake Oreos!
The first thing you’ll notice about this icebox pie is that it’s a little taller than most. That’s because it features layer upon layer of yummy goodness.
I’m talking three layers of cheesecake, four layers of vanilla wafers, and two layers of cherry filling.
Oh, and it’s topped off with a whipped cream/cheesecake mixture for good measure.
No wonder it’s called the ‘mile-high’ pie, huh? Fortunately, every layer is packed with flavor, making it extra delectable.
Strawberries and cheesecake go hand in hand. And this no-bake pie with luxurious cream cheese filling is all the proof you need.
It’s absolutely overflowing with fresh fruit (three pounds of it, to be precise!), and you’ll love the classic Graham Cracker crust.
Whether you use the strawberry sauce or go for jello, remember it needs to sit in the icebox for a solid eight hours – overnight is best.
Why make a boring old lemonade pie when you can add bright and vibrant raspberries to this?
Featuring whipped cream, vanilla, condensed milk, and thawed raspberry lemonade concentrate, it’s such a lovely blend of sweet and tart.
And while the recipe doesn’t call for it, I think it’s extra special with fresh raspberries folded into the filling.
How stunning is this strawberry margarita pie? The layered strawberry and lime garnish looks more like art than food!
Fortunately, it tastes just as good as it looks.
It has a bright, somewhat tart taste. But the strawberries add a bold sweetness that keeps it from being too sour.
And since every good margarita needs salt, this one has a unique pretzel crumb crust.
Trust me, everyone who tries this one will come back for seconds.
This pie brings to mind the popular Gwen Stefani song because it’s B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
Seriously, it’s just so stinking banana-y, every bite is like a banana explosion on your tongue.
It tastes like its banana pudding namesake, but the presentation is much nicer.
If you’re bananas for bananas like me, you’ll want to eat this whole thing yourself.
Sweet and indulgent, this butterscotch pie requires only a handful of ingredients, and it’s the perfect dessert for parties.
It’s not tart and tangy or overly fruity, and it’s not super-duper rich like some chocolate recipes can be.
Instead, it’s fully loaded with brown sugar, caramel flavors, and a few buttery nuts. Yum!
16. Lime Icebox Pie
Lemon icebox pie is probably the most famous of them all.
But if you think lemon is a bit too tart, I can’t recommend this lime icebox pie enough!
It’s less well-known but just as delicious. Plus, it’s no-bake, making it effortless to whip up at home.
Featuring gelatin, cream cheese, lime juice, and a few other things, it has a bright, tangy taste and a melt-in-your-mouth texture you’ll love.
It’s a beautiful dessert option for any summer occasion. Enjoy!
And for those who don’t like lemon or lime, I’ve got an orange recipe here that’s sure to tickle your tastebuds.
It tastes exactly like an orange creamsicle, only in pie form, and has a flawless balance of sweet, tangy, and citrusy.
Who needs popsicles when you can have this tasty treat instead?
