Tropical Punch Kool-Aid Pie

by Alli

I’ve always loved Kool-Aid Pie recipes. They are so simple to make and they just make me happy. They also take me back to my childhood summers when a pitcher of Kool-Aid was always chilling in the fridge. Now that summertime is right around the corner (right?) it’s time to make one of my favorites, Tropical Punch Kool-Aid Pie.

I usually have all the ingredients on hand to make a Kool-Aid pie. That way, if the grandkids come over and they want to bake with me or if I have company drop in, I’m dessert ready.

Speaking of grandkids, they love to hear my growing-up stories about as much as I like to tell them. One of my favorite Kool-Aid stories goes back to my Vacation Bible School days. Back then, we had VBS for a whole week during summer break, but ours was in the morning. We always had so much fun and Kool-Aid was always the drink of choice during our breaks. We’d have a different flavor every day to go along with our OREO knockoff cookies. Those were the days!

Enough reminiscing!

Let’s Make Tropical Punch Kool-Aid Pie

For this recipe, you’ll need one envelope unsweetened Tropical Punch Kool-Aid, one can of sweetened condensed milk and one 8 oz. container of whipped topping. Oh, and you’ll need a graham cracker crust. I always buy the prepared crust. It makes life easier.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the sweetened condensed milk and Kool-Aid together until well combined and thick.

Step 1 - Mix Tropical Punch Kool-Aid with sweetened condensed milk.

Fold whipped topping into the mixture until well combined.

Spread Kool-Aid mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. You can also make this pie the night before you plan on serving it.

This pie is so good and refreshing, perfect for spring and summer. When I served it to my family, they all loved it. They are my tasters when I create a new recipe and one of my grandsons said the flavor was too strong. He said, and I quote, “All you can taste is the tropical punch flavor.” Well, duh! I told him next time I make this for him, I’ll only use half the powdered kool-aid. Everyone else said the flavor was perfect!

Now here is a really quick and easy pie to throw together in no time at all. We could do it in so many different flavors.

Tropical Punch Kool-Aid is mine and my son’s favorite flavor but I never thought of making a Pie out of it. So I will ask Charlie if he would like to for Valentines

I am so into this pie for some reason, I think it has something to do with the pink color!

Wow, this is such a unique idea! I think it would be a perfect summertime pie and I appreciate how easily it can be customized by using different flavors of Kool-Aid.

We made banana creme pie last week and it was delicious. I might try this kool aid recipe one of these days.

I have seen these pies but never made one. I will add this to my summer fun recipes! I may true it before that, I have a SweetWeek coming and maybe this one would be good for that!

YUM!!! I once made a Kool-Aid sugar scrub and it’s been popular ever since. That was over 2 years ago. I can see this happening to your pie!

Beth Patterson February 13, 2019 - 5:07 pm

That would be really quick to make. I think it would be a big hit with kids on a hot summer day!

OMGoodness! This Kool-Aid pie reminds me of childhood. I make a similar recipe for family get-togethers. So. Darn. Yummy!

How simple with Kool-aid, I would of never thought of this. We used to use frozen juice, so makes sense.
