These no-bake Pink Lemonade Icebox Pie Squares with Golden Oreo crust are cool, light and refreshing for those hot summer days.

Have you ever had lemonade pie? Last summer I tasted pink lemonade pie for the first time. I had never even heard of it before I tasted it and I’ll be honest. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because of all that sweetness.

It only took one bite to convince me. And it reminded me of our creamy lime pie that I just love. Cream cheese, Cool Whip, lemonade…sweet & tangy, cool and refreshing, the perfect summer dessert. There’s not much to dislike about that, am I right?

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Reader Barbara says, “I made these and they were excellent. I chilled the crust in the fridge for an hour as well as the filling (before adding the Cool Whip). After letting the two set, I added the Cool Whip, assembled and then refrigerated for 3 hours. They were devoured. Thanks!”

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Reader Tootsie says, “One of the very best pies I ever ate, and so simple and easy to make.”

Why you’ll love this recipe:

  • Only 20 minutes to prepare.
  • No bake for an easy summertime dessert.
  • Sweet & tangy flavor with a sweet Oreo crust.
  • Recipe variations!

Why do you line a pan with parchment paper?

To make it easy to serve, I lined an 8×8″ baking pan with parchment paper.  I liked doing this because then I was able to cut the dessert in neat, tidy squares. Sometimes it is all about the presentation, ya know?

The second reason I used parchment paper was to keep the pan clean.  You’ve got to love a dessert that requires no pan scrubbing.  You don’t have to use parchment paper, though. It is completely optional.

please note

Parchment paper is not the same as wax paper. Wax paper is not as strong and won’t help the bars come out of the pan easily.

How to Make Pink Lemonade Icebox Pie Squares

It’s not completely necessary to use a power mixer for this recipe, but I did just to make it easy. The least amount of arm power is the best way in our house. Sometimes when you are working with cream cheese, it is hard to get the cream cheese blended enough so that there aren’t chunks.

  • Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they are crushed.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the crushed Oreos and butter. Press this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, beat the softened cream cheese for 1-2 minutes until it is fluffy and smooth.
  • Add in the sweetened condensed milk and pink lemonade concentrate. Mix well.
  • I wanted my Pink Lemonade Icebox Pie Squares to actually be pink so I added in a few drops of red food coloring. You can leave this out if you don’t care about the color.
  • Fold in the Cool Whip. Don’t mix this in with the mixer or it will overmix and your Cool Whip won’t be fluffy.
  • Pour this mixture over the crust and smooth it evenly. Refrigerate for 4 hours, or until set.

Right before serving, you can decorate the bars with whipped cream and slices of lemon if you’d like.

Recipe Variations

  • Use something different for the crust. Try a graham cracker pie crust, pretzels, Ritz crackers or even an oatmeal crust.
  • Use light cream cheese and fat free Cool Whip to cut calories.
  • Try limeade instead of pink lemonade for the pie filling. Even orange juice concentrate would work.
  • Prepare the recipe in a pie plate instead of a square pan and serve in pie slices.
  • Add strawberries to the top for a strawberry lemonade pie.
  • Love fresh lemons? Add lemon zest to the filling for fresh lemon flavor.

Would these maintain their shape if I cut them with a cookie cutter instead of into squares? And would they melt of left out for too long? I’m hoping to make these for a themed office party 🙂

Does it have to be frozen juice thawed out or can it be any juice?
