My love for no bake pies runs deep. They’re so simple to make, easy for anyone, and it’s almost impossible to mess it up which means you get perfect results every single time.

MY TIPS FOR MAKING ORANGE CREAMSICLE PIE
- Read the directions beforehand. There are two ingredients that are divided and used in two different mixes.
- Use a really good quality pulp-free orange juice for best results. I love Tropicana and always have it in my fridge, so that’s what I used.
- For best taste and texture, use the real cream cheese (not lite) and use real pudding (not sugar-free).
- If you really want to get fancy, squeeze oranges to get the 1/3 cup juice needed.
- I prefer to refrigerate all no bake pies overnight. But if needed, this pie can be refrigerated for at least 6 hours and be fine.

No Bake Orange Creamsicle Pie
- 1 (6 oz) ready-to-use graham cracker crust
- 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tub (8 oz) cool whip, thawed
- zest of 1 orange
- 1/3 cup pulp-free orange juice
- 1 box (3.4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
Combine softened cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the sweetened condensed milk (reserve the rest for later) into a mixing bowl. Beat with a mixer until well blended. Add 1/2 cup of the cool whip (reserve the rest for later) and beat together until combined. Spread onto the bottom of the graham cracker crust.
In the same bowl, combine the remaining sweetened condensed milk, fresh orange zest, orange juice, and the dry instant pudding mix. Beat together with a mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining cool whip. Spread onto the 1st layer in the pie crust and spread out evenly.
Cover with the enclosed lid and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight is even better.
Garnish with freshly whipped cream and orange zest, if wanted.
Use a really good quality pulp-free orange juice. I love Tropicana! You really want that orange flavor to shine through.
When you zest the orange only zest the very outer layer. Don't zest too deep into the orange or else it becomes bitter.
It's best to use the real cream cheese. Not the reduced-fat stuff.
Make sure the cream cheese is soft to avoid lumps. Place the unwrapped cream cheese on a plate and microwave for 30 seconds.
To make whipped cream for garnish beat together 1 cup heavy whipping cream + 3 tablespoons powdered sugar for several minutes until stiff peaks form. This pie does not need a garnish but you can do one so it presents pretty.
