{No-Bake} Tropical Cream Pie: This easy no-bake pie tastes like a tropical island dream! Cream cheese, whipped cream, pineapple, Kool-Aid Easy Mix, and coconut make up this to-die for filling!

{No-Bake} Tropical Cream Pie | A Latte Food Hello, gorgeous. Doesn’t this baby pink tropical dream just scream spring to you? Or maybe summer since it’s a no-bake pie? Either way, today I’m bringing to you an easy, delicious no-bake dessert that’s made with simple, everyday ingredients, including Kool-Aid Easy Mix and other Kraft ingredients.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe we’re halfway through April already. Since California is pretty seasonly challenged, we’ve pretty much experienced more weather changes in the past couple of months than we did all last year. However, for once, California has had April right (apart from the whole April showers thing, but what else is new #toosoonfordroughthumor?). The weather has been breezy, sunny, and hitting a high of 75.

Even though Thanksgiving and Christmas are traditionally thought of as pie time (pumpkin and apple for the win), to me, there’s no better time for a slice of the good stuff than during the spring and summer months. It just seems all-American or something, you know?

{No-Bake} Tropical Cream Pie | A Latte Food {No-Bake} Tropical Cream Pie | A Latte Food So, this pie. This pie is ridiculously creamy thanks to the combination of cream cheese and homemade whipped cream (although Cool Whip would work here as well). It’s kind of like a no-bake cheesecake, but more mousse-like.

It’s like eating a cloud.

Thanks to the addition of Tropical Punch flavored Kool-Aid Easy Mix, it’s like eating a tropical cloud.

This tropical cloud is one of the easiest pies to make (thanks to the ease and convenience of Kool-Aid Easy Mix), yet it is packed with a ton of flavor that both kids and adults will like (it’s gotten the stamp of approval from both!).

Here’s where we’ll break it down:

{No-Bake} Tropical Cream Pie | A Latte Food

Step 1: Prepare the graham cracker crust, which is 3 ingredients: butter, sugar, and crushed graham crackers. Press into the bottom of a 9″ pie plate.

Step 2a: If making homemade whipped cream (instead of using Cool Whip), beat heavy cream with almond extract and powdered sugar until it forms stiff peaks.

Step 2b: In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Add in crushed pineapple and coconut.

Step 3: Just add water to the Kool-Aid Easy Mix, and mix it with the cream cheese batter. Stir until well combined. Fold in half of the whipped cream mix gently.

Step 4: Pour pie filling into the crust. Top with remaining whipped cream (I piped it onto the pie with a star tip, but you could just spread it over the pie as well). And, if desired, top with toasted coconut. Refrigerate at least 4-6 hours before serving.

    Hi, I live in Australia and can’t get the easy mix, as only the original cool aid liquid is imported here. Can I use the original and what changes would I need to make? Thank you.

      Hi, Michelle! While I have never personally done it, I had another reader tell me they used the original liquid in place of the easy mix (keeping all measurements the same) and loved it! That is my best suggestion, and I hope it works! Thanks! 🙂
