How To Make No Bake Pumpkin Pie

1. Make the Mixture

In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of milk, and sugar in a large bowl. When smooth, fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping and spread in the graham crust.

2. Whisk

Next, whisk together the milk, canned pumpkin, dry pudding mixes, and pumpkin spice until creamy. Spread over the cream cheese layer.

3. Add Toppings

Top with the remaining 1/2 tub of whipped topping and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Tip: This pie recipe can be made several days ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to eat.

Tips + Variations

  • Be sure to use canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. There is a difference between the two: Canned pumpkin is nothing more than cooked, pureed pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie Filling has spices and is pre-sweetened. You want real pumpkin mixture for this pie!
  • You can easily double this recipe to make two pies with the premade pie crusts OR you can make 1 9×13 dish by using graham cracker crumbs and making your own crust. Use the crust recipe in my No Bake Cheesecake for best results.
  • Chill this pie for at least 4 hours to give the flavors time to develop and firm. The best part is that it chills quickly!
  • Once your pie is chilled and you are ready to cut, use a large, sharp knife and make cuts across the pie. You may want to clean your knife in-between cuts for the prettiest slices.
  • To Freeze: Cover the pie with plastic wrap and then tightly with foil (to avoid freezer burn).
  • To Serve: When ready to serve, remove the pumpkin cheesecake from the freezer and cut it into slices with a sharp knife. 
  • Leftovers: Cover any leftovers tightly and return promptly to the fridge or freezer.

I promise that this is the easiest pumpkin pie recipe. You can make this also for easy school lunches or have it as a great twist for a dessert that needs no oven time! Add this to your brunch recipes, breakfast menu, or a great end to one of your favorite lunch recipes, too.

FAQS

Can I make my own graham cracker crust?

Absolutely! Just mix some butter and graham cracker crumbs and you’ll be set! Push it down into the pie plate and you can then add the pumpkin pie filling.

How do you store leftover pumpkin pie?

Due to the ingredients in this pie recipe, it needs to be covered and kept in the fridge. This is the easiest way to keep it fresh for the next day of enjoying.

Can you freeze pumpkin pie?

Pumpkin pie is best served fresh. I don’t recommend freezing it as it might change the texture quite dramatically once you thaw it to eat it. Be certain to have an 8-ounce tub of whipped cream to add to the top of each pie piece! It’s one of my favorite no bake recipes, ever!

  3. Can I make this with whipped cream that I whip myself? Or does it absolutely have to be from a tub?
