No Bake Orange Creamsicle Pie

orange creamsicle pie

I’m late to the party but it is still fiesta friday and I’m bringing a special treat! My grand aunt made a version this pie for my family during a recent visit. Her pie was strawberry and it was wonderful. She graciously shared the recipe for this no bake gem. The prep takes about 10 minutes and the pie rests in the fridge until you are ready for it. This is the perfect desert for summer gatherings!

Today’s rendition of this genius pie is orange creamsicle – orange jello and vanilla yogurt – but you can change up the flavors with different combinations of yogurt and jello. I already can’t wait to try out key lime and lemon!

1 small box jello (6 oz) – today’s pie uses orange jello but you can use any flavor
1/4 cup boiling water
12 0z yogurt – today I’m rocking vanilla
8 oz cool whip, I liked the frozen variety
1 graham cracker crust
no bake yogurt pie
Empty jello into bowl – heat up water in a microwave safe container
Mix water with jello in a large bowl until dissolved.
Mix in yogurt until blended.
Then, fold in cool whip – mix well.
Pour into graham cracker crust
Refrigerate for several hours until set.
What festive flavor combinations would you try?
