Let’s take a trip down memory lane, back to the days of carefree afternoons and the simple joy of a chilled treat. Enter the Nostalgic Bliss: No Bake Cherry Kool-Aid Pie – a frozen delight that brings back the flavors of childhood with a dash of grown-up indulgence. Get ready for a journey filled with memories and the irresistible taste of yesteryears.
Close your eyes and imagine the ingredients coming together like old friends reuniting. A pint of heavy whipping cream, a can of sweetened condensed milk, four packets of cherry Kool-Aid, a cup of key lime juice, a sliced lime, and a graham cracker pie crust (regular, but the deep dish is a nod to nostalgia).
Start the journey by placing the heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer, letting it dance to the rhythm of the whisk attachment. Blend on low for 4 minutes, the gentle hum of the mixer echoing the carefree laughter of days gone by. Gradually crank it up to 6, reaching the crescendo of whipped topping perfection.
In the spirit of nostalgia, fold in the sweetened condensed milk with a touch of grace, reminiscent of the comforting embrace of familiar flavors. Then, enter the cherry Kool-Aid, painting the mixture with vibrant hues that transport you to lazy summer afternoons and the taste of pure joy.
Add a cup of key lime juice, the citrusy notes playing a nostalgic melody on your taste buds. It’s not just a pie; it’s a symphony of flavors that recalls the simplicity of childhood pleasures.
Pour this nostalgic symphony into a graham cracker pie crust, the familiar aroma filling the air like a sweet memory. Top it off with lime wedges, a nod to the days of backyard picnics and sun-soaked adventures. Seal the pie with the washed crust lid, a ritual that harks back to a time when the little details mattered.

Top with lime wedges. Wash the lid of the pie crust and flip and place on the pie. Press down the metal edging. Freeze pie overnight.
