Kool-Aid Pie Ingredients - Sweetened Condensed Milk, Kool Aid, Whipped Topping, Graham Cracker Crust

Ingredients

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: For the most scrumptious milky sweetness, be sure to get condensed milk, not evaporated. The thickness helps the filling set.
  • Unsweetened Drink Mix (aka, Kool-aid):  Use your favorite flavor and feel free to get creative!
  • Whipped Topping: It’s a quick and easy way to thicken the filling and give it a light, fluffy, and mousse-like finish. 
  • Graham Cracker Crust: There’s nothing better than a ready-made pie crust! Go for graham cracker or Oreo if you like!

How to Make Kool-Aid Pie

Ready to get mixing? Here’s the basic steps for this recipe:

1. Mix the Kool-Aid and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Then, gently stir in the whipped topping.

2. Pour the filling into the crust and smooth it out with a spatula.

3. Chill the pie for at least one hour so it sets. Then slice, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe Tips and Variations 

There are plenty of ways to make this pie your own. So, check out these tips and variations before you start:

  • Chill out. The longer the pie chills, the thicker and creamier the filling will be. Give it one hour at least!
  • Add mix-ins. Feel free to stir in crushed cookies, chocolate chips, or even a swirl of marshmallow creme.
  • Stick with Cool Whip. You can use freshly made whipped cream if you prefer. But Cool Whip is much more stable and it means the pie will last longer.
  • Make it extra colorful. Double the recipe, and make half with one flavor and half with another. Then, swirl them together in two pie crusts. I think blue raspberry and strawberry would be great together!
  • Make it for a crowd. You’ll need to make the base with graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press it into a lightly greased and lined 9×13-inch baking dish. After that, double the filling, pour, and set as instructed.

  1. I love the easy pie recipes and others but what I don’t care for is when a recipe calls for “a container” of cool whip and assumes we know what size of a container to use. Not sure about the stores where you are but the stores here usually carry 3 sometimes 4 different sizes . Maybe we can start clarifying which size products should be used especially for the newby cooks out there? I know it would help my grand daughter a lot, she’s likely to add either the largest or even the smallest of whatever she can find.
    Don’t take this wrong, I love what you do and love that you share❣️ I really like seeing all of the old and new recipes. Keep up the great work and God bless you!
    Always a fan,
