When I think about this Easy Lemon Icebox Pie, I always think of my Aunt Carol. My Mama also made it often growing up but for whatever reason, I associate it with Aunt Carol. If you’ve been reading here a long time, you might remember that my Red Velvet Recipe is also inspired by Aunt Carol.
I should mention, she’s one of the kindest, most amazing women I know. She has run an in-home daycare for more than 20 years and I couldn’t begin to count the number of children that love and adore her and call her “Aunt Carol”. So this recipe… it’s for her!
This no-bake recipe is so insanely easy to make and a family favorite for everyone in my big extended family! When I realized late the night before that I needed a dessert for our 4th of July get-together, this is the recipe I whipped up in under 10 minutes and stuck in the frig to have the next day!
Lemon Icebox Pie
I’ve mentioned before that I prefer a homemade graham cracker crust, but if that’s not your thing, or you’re in a pinch to make it fast, fast, fast – by all means buy a pre-made graham cracker crust. Either way, it’s still delicious!

Easy, no bake, Lemon Icebox Pie
Graham Cracker Crust (or use pre-made crust):
- 8 Graham Crackers, crushed
- 4 tablespoons of butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
Lemon Icebox Filling
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 oz) container of non-dairy whipped topping
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- For the crust, combine all ingredients and firmly press into a deep pie plate. I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to really press the crust down firm. If you absolutely have to… you can skip this step and buy a pre-made graham cracker crust… but homemade really is better (and easy!).
- For the filling, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix on high speed until creamy and smooth.
- Pour the filling into the crust, then chill for at least 4 hours. Serve & enjoy!
