Easy Pineapple Pie
Whose up for more delicious no bake dessert recipes? No bake recipes are some of our favorites to make on this site: no worrying about ovens or burning your food and you get a nice, cool treat. When spring and summer hit, chilled desserts like these are simply amazing! Today, we’re tackling an easy pie recipe: Pineapple Pie.
I’ve read many a pineapple pie recipe on the internet that calls for prepping pie dough, making a crust, and baking your pie in the oven. As much as I love a delicious baked pie, the warmer months call for cooler desserts. So I settled on this Pineapple Pie No Bake that uses a pineapple pie filling made from Jello and whipped topping. This filling, when mixed with some canned pineapple chunks, is easy to make and tastes amazing- especially when paired with a graham cracker pie crust!
If you’ve been on the look out for something more like a Pineapple Icebox Pie than the Baked Pineapple Pies you see all over the web, you’ve found the right recipe. With just 5 ingredients, you’ll be able to put together a cold pineapple pie that makes for a wonderful spring or summertime dessert! We know you’re going to love this one- give it a try.

We love the pies from places like Frisch’s and Shoney’s, so we decided to make our own version of their Easy Strawberry Pie. This pie tastes great on a hot summer day: cool, strawberry Jello laced with chunks of fresh strawberry in a no-frills pie crust. Don’t forget the whipped cream- so good!
Lastly, we’ve got our Easy Banana Cream Pie. Even when using whole fresh bananas, this pie is so simple to put together thanks to the instant banana pudding and whipped topping. We think this pie is especially good as an Easter Dessert!
No Bake Pineapple Pie Ingredients
Pineapple Gelatin – Store brand gelatin will work perfectly fine in this recipe! There is an Island Pineapple Jello but I couldn’t find any of it near me.
Whipped Topping – Like Cool Whip.
Pineapple – You’ll want some smaller pineapple chunks for our pineapple pie filling. Make sure you drain whatever pineapple you’re using well: too much liquid will make our pie filling all soupy and thin.
Graham Cracker Pie Crust – Go with store-bought or make our No Bake Graham Cracker Crust!
How to make Pineapple Pie
Mix pineapple gelatin with boiling water before melting ice into gelatin mix. Let set in fridge for 20 minutes.
Remove from fridge and fold with whipped topping before folding in drained pineapple chunks.
Transfer pie filling to crust and let chill for 4 hours before serving. Optionally garnish with whipped cream, cherries, and additional pineapple.
We start our pie filling off by combining our gelatin mix with some boiling water. Once combined, drop in your ice and stir until it’s melted in.
Move that to the fridge to set for about 20 minutes. It won’t set fully- we want this. After 20, pull from the fridge and add in the thawed whipped topping.
Fold that together with the half-set gelatin, trying to keep the whipped topping fluffy. Eventually, they’ll mix into a peach-y color. At this point, add in the pineapple chunks- drain them well and, for good measure, pat dry with paper towels.
Once those are folded in, our pie filling is done. Now we can transfer everything to our pie crust. Pour the filling over and spread it evenly.
Cover your pie and let it sit in the fridge for about 4 hours. This will ensure it sets fully before we cut into it. If you like, you can also garnish with some dollops of whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and some pineapple slices.
Once set and garnished, feel free to cut into slices and serve. Your pie will last a good 3-4 days in the fridge if kept well. After 3-4 days, the texture will start to worsen so enjoy quickly!
