When I was a kid, there was one thing that gave clue that summer vacation was on its way; an ice cold glass of Kool Aid. I spent pretty much everyday of my summer vacations running the neighborhood with a semi-permanent Kool Aid mustache. I’m sure many of you did as well. These days, I will usually opt not to wear the Kool Aid mustache, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love it any less. I’ve just changed how I prefer it. Now days, I want my Kool Aid in a deliciously easy Kool Aid pie recipe instead of a glass.
Aside from the taste, the best part of this Kool Aid pie recipe is the cost. You can make a pie for less than $3.00 depending on where you do your shopping. All of the ingredients we used for this post came from Aldi which made it super cheap! Baking items are one of the best things to buy at Aldi hands down so if you have one near you, be sure to check them out.
Kool Aid Pie Recipe
This Kool Aid pie is perfect for summer picnics, 4th of July BBQ’s, birthday parties, pot luck dinners and even holiday desserts! When I take desserts for dinners or summer picnics, I typically take two of these Kool Aid pies and my peanut butter meringue pie as well. There are never any leftovers to take home!
KoolAid Pie Recipe
This Kool Aid pie recipe is super kid friendly. Not only will they love eating it, but they’ll love helping you make it! It’s great for littles who may be just learning how to mix things themselves to work on hand/eye coordination. For older kids, you can use it as a beginning cooking lesson.
You Will Need:
- 8 oz Whipped Topping
- 1 pkg Unsweetened Kool Aid packet
- 14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust
How to Make Kool Aid Pie
Before you begin making your Kool Aid pie, make sure the Whipped Topping is really cold. You don’t want it frozen, but it should be somewhere between refrigerated and frozen. Also, you can use any flavor Kool Aid you prefer. We used cherry for this post, but strawberry, lemonade, grape and even watermelon flavored are all just as amazing!
Once your Whipped Topping is cold, add it with the Kool Aid and sweetened condensed milk to a medium mixing bowl. Mix well until they are blended and whipped. You can use either a rubber spatula or a hand mixer to do so. I personally prefer the mixer as I feel it whips the ingredients better.
Use a rubber spatula to fill the graham cracker crust with your pie mixture. It will be thick so you won’t be able to just pour it in. Using a rubber spatula allows you to really get the sides of the bowl so that you don’t lose any yummy goodness!
Spread the mixture in the pie crust then cover with the crust lid. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Top with whipped cream or topping right before you serve and enjoy!
