I love, LOVE no-bake desserts; who doesn’t?! That is what first drew me in to making this Jello Pie, easy peasy, mix up the pie filling, throw the filling in a graham cracker crust, and put it in the fridge to set; that’s it!

I’m telling you, this quick jello pie is where it’s at. The best part is you can use this as a base recipe and make any flavor you’d like.

I like to top mine with more whipped topping or whipped cream and fresh fruit. I’ll normally garnish with the fruity flavor from whatever jello flavor I’m using.

But, you know me, I take it a step further. In a lot of jello pies, there is no creamy element; well, I added cream cheese and boy, it just adds the tangy creaminess to it that makes the pie not overly sweet; I’m so in love.

Simply the perfect dessert for a hot summer day. I can’t get enough of easy recipes like this one.

Lily is finally at the age that she can really help in the kitchen. She loves to make this easy dessert with me and lick the beaters afterward!

HOW TO MAKE JELLO PIE:

  1. Place the jello mix in a large heatproof bowl.
  2. Add the boiling hot water and whisk it in until dissolved.
  3. Add the cream cheese to the bowl with the gelatin mixture and beat it with an electric hand mixer until completely smooth with no lumps. Be careful, as the mixture may splash out of the bowl.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

CAN THIS BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! That is what I love about this no bake jello pie.

Once you mix everything up and place it into the crust, you have to place it into the fridge for at least four hours, but I always do it overnight. So this makes for a fantastic make-ahead dessert.

HOW TO SERVE?

I serve it with more of the whipped topping piped on top of the pie and fresh strawberries. Other yummy options include:

  • Sliced fresh bananas
  • Banana chips
  • Fresh Mint
  • White chocolate chips
  • Maraschino cherry

WILL THIS WORK WITH OTHER JELLO FLAVORS?

Yes, this method will work with any flavors of Jello, I have tried:

  • Strawberry Jell-o
  • Cherry Jello
  • Orange Jello
  • Peach Jello
  • Lemon Jello

Each flavor worked perfectly! Out of the ones listed above, my favorite is my delicious strawberry jello pie.

DO I HAVE TO USE WHIPPED TOPPING?

No, you can make your own whipped cream. To do so:

  1. Place 1 cup of heavy cream into a large bowl with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
  2. Whip with an electric mixer or by hand until stiff peaks form, but do not overmix, or you will have butter.
  3. Use it in place of 8 ounces of whipped topping.

HOW TO STORE:

Store leftover pie in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Best served and eaten cold.

Freeze for up to 3 months.

Place leftovers in the freezer in a freezer-safe container. To thaw, place the dish in the fridge overnight.

DANA’S TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • This makes one 10-inch pie, but you can easily double it to and make two pies if desired.
  • Great for a make-ahead dessert.
  • This freezes well, see my tips above on how to store.
  • Use a deep dish, 10-inch premade crust with extra servings for the best results.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust slowly and carefully to avoid air bubbles.
  • Refrigerate the pie for at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.
  • Garnish the pie with whipped cream, fruit, or other toppings.
