I love math as much as the next guy, so I’m happy to post this 4 ingredient lemon cream pie. This pie is truly the easiest dessert you can possibly make.

The hardest part is juicing lemons.

NO BAKE LEMON COOL WHIP PIE

All it takes to throw together this truly delicious cool whip lemon pie is a pre-made graham cracker crust (find this at any major grocery store) a bowl and a spoon. If you are kitchen skills challenged, this is the recipe for you. If you’re short on time, this is the recipe for you.

Even a small child could make this lemon pie.

Another bonus, you can easily swap out the cool whip for dairy free coconut whip if you’re “cooking” for people with food allergies. Same delicious taste, same easy preparation.

I am serving this on Thanksgiving, but I love this pie for summertime when it’s hot outside not only because it’s no-bake, so I don’t have to turn on the oven, but also because it’s so creamy and cool, it’s the perfect refreshing treat for a hot summer day.
