No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie


Summer is in full swing around here and that means I’m living on no-bake recipes, strawberries are super cheap, and I’ve got pie on the brain. (Who am I kidding? I always have pie on the brain!)

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie - a fast, easy, an foolproof pie recipe for summer!

So, when did summer become busier than the school year? Oh yeah, when my daughter’s social calendar rivals a socialite. Whoever coined the “lazy days of summer” has not lived a week in my shoes.

This last week, the first full week of carefree activities and no homework included 2 slumber parties, a cousin sleepover, a swim play date, a dance recital, and a trip to see Grandma and Papa. I’m exhausted.

Oh, and we can’t forget about the main big-time event that happened: Jordan got her honor roll/principal’s list reward. Hayley came over and dyed the tips of her hair teal! Jordan’s been begging for colorful streaks forever but they’re not allowed to have them at school. We decided to use permanent dye on the tips of her hair and then in August we’ll just chop it off.

She loves it. I’m jealous. I’m living vicariously because really? I want purple tips, but the stick is too far up for me to actually go get them.

So I guess summer is a little carefree…if we’re talking about hair, that is. And maybe pie.

Summer is always about the pie. Especially when it’s a No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie.

EASY No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie

This pie is stupid easy, which is what you need when the lazy days of summer get so hectic you can’t take a breath. Plus, it’s no bake, full of strawberries and pudding, and the crust is made from Golden Oreos.

Plus, all those juicy red strawberries just scream summer, don’t they?

EASY No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie

When I saw the 2 pound clamshells of strawberries for only $5 at my grocery store, I bought way too many of them. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, so I immediately thought of shortcake. The shortcake then turned into a pie, which most things do around these parts.

This pie starts with my easy no bake Oreo crust – but you use Golden Oreos. You could even use Lemon Oreos for a yummy flavor twist! The crust comes together in minutes.

Whenever I think of the pies from my childhood I think of pudding. All the summer pies my mom made had some flavor of pudding in them. (Her favorite was banana cream!) I filled this pie with an instant vanilla pudding mix. (You can also use cheesecake, coconut, or lemon pudding mix!) Just pour it into the crust and let it set up for at least an hour.

That’s when the magic happens: the strawberries! I just sliced a pound of them and piled them on. You could use even more if you want a higher pie. Top it with whipped cream and you have a delicious summer pie. Note: don’t top it with the whipped cream until you’re ready to serve it…especially if it’s a hot day!

Stop and enjoy a slice…if you can! 🙂

  6. Man, Jordan is living the life! You on the other hand, are living as chauffeur it sounds like 🙂 time for you to take a break and dye your tips purple. Because OMG YOU MUST DO THAT ASAP. I’m begging you! Also begging for this pie, but that’s another story. Love that it has pudding in it! 

  7. No-bake pies are the best and I love using pudding in them! It makes them so creamy. This strawberry shortcake pie looks so perfect for summer! I’m a little jealous of your daughter’s colorful hair too, my parents would never let me do that haha. 🙂

  8. How fun that you let her color her hair! I am 26 and have never colored my hair, not even highlights. And now am too scared to do it! ha!

    1. Oh highlights (normal ones) are so fun! I had to go blond once my grays got stubborn. Makes me look younger, lol!

  9. I feel the same way – summers always feel busier and jam-packed with more activities. I think you should totally rock the purple tips, it would look SO good on you 🙂 Love this gorgeous pie! No-bake + strawberries + Golden Oreos = best summer pie!

  10. I was JUST joking with another friend about how summer is not relaxing! Dance rehearsal, swim lesson, soccer practice. BUT at least I don’t have to make lunches in the morning….until summer camps kick in. LOVE this pie. Trevor saw it on my screen yesterday, and well, you know him and Strawberries. Totally making it.
