According to my family, I’m the best pie maker in the world! They’ve voted my Cherry Kool-Aid Pie as the coolest and most refreshing pie they’ve ever tasted.  

I actually blushed from all the compliments AND knowing how easy it was to create my pie using Kool-Aid Easy Mix.  My daughter has already requested it for her birthday in August. Since making this pie, I have ventured out and created another Kool-Aid Pie Recipe.

Cherry Kool-Aid Pie

I’ve enjoyed Kool-Aid ever since I was a child. I always looked forward to summertime and VBS because each day we had a different Kool-Aid flavor to go along with our cookies.

Don’t tell anyone, but snack time was my favorite part of the day!

If you take a peek in my pantry, you’ll always find a few packages of Kool-Aid, so I was really excited when I found the new Kool-Aid Easy Mix at my local Walmart.


Y’all, it’s a liquid drink mix and comes in grape, cherry, and tropical punch! The packaging is so cute and colorful and it’s easy to use – you just open and pour.  

I also like how affordable it is! You can make it by the pitcher or by the glass AND it has 50% less sugar than leading sodas.

I scooped up all 3 flavors before gathering the rest of the ingredients for my Cherry Kool-Aid Pie. My 5-ingredient no-bake pie can be whipped up in mere minutes, placed in the fridge for an hour OR overnight and it’s all set.

Funny Story

My graham cracker pie crust had a few loose crumbs so I tried to shake them off over my kitchen sink. I obviously shook too hard and the entire crust fell into the sink.  

Since I didn’t have another one on hand, I made a homemade crust with a box of graham cracker crumbs. 

How To Make Cherry Kool-Aid Pie

After the slight delay in making a new crust, I added the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk into the bowl of my electric mixer and mixed until well blended.

Then I added the Kool-Aid Easy Mix and mixed the ingredients on low speed.

Spoon the mixture into the crust and it’s ready to rest in the fridge for an hour (or overnight).

I top the pie with mounds of cool whip and maraschino cherries with stems. The cherries were blotted well with paper towels so they wouldn’t bleed into the topping.

You may want to make two pies. This one didn’t last very long at my house. I’m thinking of making the next one with the tropical punch flavor.
