Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 pie

Serving Size: Serves 6 to 8

Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

Incredibly easy to make and perfect for parties. If you like Pink this pie is for YOU!


  • 2 cups of nilla wafers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 Litres (just shy of 2 quarts if you're in the U.S.) of vanilla ice cream, softened slightly
  • 2 cups (or 16 ounces in the U.S.) of whipped cream, I made homemade but you can use store bought, divided
  • 1 packet of crystal light pink lemonade (4.5 g)
  • 1 to 2 cups of coconut (to taste, I like more)
  • 1 to 2 drops of red food colouring.


  • Crush the nilla wafers in a food processor by pulsing until they resemble fine crumbs. Add the melted butter, pulse again.
  • Press into a pie plate.
  • In a stand mixer combine the ice cream, 1/2 of the whipped cream and crystal light packet. Whisk on high until well combined. If you want it to be a darker pink you can add some food colouring. Pour into the pie plate and smooth out. Place in the freezer for about 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
  • Pull out the pie about 10 minutes before serving and top with the remaining 1/2 of the whipped cream. If desired top with the pink coconut.
  • Pink Coconut Optional topping:
  • You can make the coconut pink fairly easily. Start with a small amount of coconut on a glass bowl. Add 1 drop of food colouring and mix thoroughly, then add more coconut until you get the colour you want to achieve. Toss over top of the pie just before serving.
  • Serve with a big old pretty in pink smile!


Recipe slightly adapted from Betty Crocker

Coconut topping inspiration comes from Blooming on Bainbridge

    My mother used to make Pink Lemonade Pie for me (I wanted that instead of B-day cake growing up!) when I was young. It used frozen pink lemonade and cool whip (along with evaporated milk and a few other things). I’m going to give this a try just to see if it brings back memories! Thanks for posting!

    I love your backdrop, where did you get it?

      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Hey Ayngelina. Actually both the thing under the food and behind it are tiles. I go to home depot or lowes and buy cheap tiles for photo backdrops. The one under it is marble. But what you can’t see is it’s broken. We bought an irregular, broken piece and paid half. We’ll cut the broken end off and it’s good as new. Any tile with a chip or imperfection they will usually discount. So it’s a really inexpensive option.

  60. 66

    My favorite flavor is Chocolate Mousse Royale from Baskin Robbins!

  61. 67

    This is like ice cream lover heaven right here on a platter :D
    Gorgeous colour!
