Lately I have been craving lemon like crazy. Maybe it’s because it’s been cold and rainy here and I am hoping for the sunshine, blue skies, and warmer weather. When warm weather comes lemon is always on my mind.

Lemon and no-bake desserts.

3 layers of creamy lemon pudding in an easy, store bought graham cracker crust. If you don’t want to use a store bought crust go ahead and make your own. I love using the shortbread pie crust in this recipe but the graham cracker crust will also work well.

I love freshly whipped cream but if you want to make this pie even easier then go ahead and use an 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip.

5 simple ingredients is all you need. Please do not use sugar-free lemon pudding. Yes you could make it “healthier” but the taste and texture will suffer.

Mix the lemon pudding with milk (preferably whole milk) and some fresh lemon juice. Whisk it together until it’s nice and thick. Put half of it into the pie crust.

Add some freshly whipped cream into the remaining half and whisk together until it’s combined and light in color. Pour into pie crust. Spread the remaining whipped cream on top. Cover and let it sit in the fridge.

I preferred this pie the day after I made it. The flavors come together and it has lots of time to get really cold. If wanted you can zest some lemon on top of the pie. I personally don’t think it needs it but if you want even more lemon goodness then go ahead and do it.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8
Calories: 310 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 ready-to-use graham cracker or shortbread crust
  • 2 boxes (3.4 oz each) lemon instant pudding mix do not prepare
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice about 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Combine lemon instant pudding mix, whole milk, and fresh lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until pudding is thick (about 2 minutes).
  2. Spread 1 1/2 cups onto the prepared crust.
  3. Beat the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, or with a handheld blender, until stiff peaks form. This takes about 5 minutes.
  4. Add half of the freshly whipped cream into the remaining lemon pudding mix and whisk together until combined. Spread over the lemon pudding in the pie crust.
  5. Top the pie with the remaining whipped cream.
  6. Cover with the enclosed lid and let refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours before serving. For best results make the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
Recipe Notes

If you don't want to whip your own cream simply use an 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip. Combine half of it with the remaining lemon pudding mix and the other half for the top layer of the pie.

To speed up whipping the cream, place the bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 15 minutes to get ice cold. The colder the better as it will speed up the process of whipping the cream (usually 2-3 minutes instead of 5 min or more).

    June 5, 2017 at 10:39 pm I was disappointed. Not lemony enough. Would consider doubling or tripling the lemon juice.

      July 25, 2018 at 8:12 pm I just finished putting this in the fridge so I haven't tasted it put together, but I added extra lemon juice to my pudding mix plus zest of one lemon and tasted it and it was perfect! (We LOVE lemon/tangy in our household).

      June 27, 2017 at 11:53 pm Hi Linda! Thank you so much for being here. You could use vanilla pudding it just would not have the same lemony flavor. Add the lemon juice called for in recipe and some lemon zest, and some lemon extract if you can find it there. That will help a bit with the lemon flavor. Enjoy!

      July 1, 2017 at 6:44 pm I apologize you feel this way. Running a blog like this one with free recipes costs several hundred dollars a month + not to mention the hours and hours of work I put into it each day to maintain it and keep up with everything. If there is a specific ad please let me know, I work closely with my ad management company and can see about fixing it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend :)

          November 4, 2017 at 10:49 pm Do you mean a homemade graham cracker crust instead of buying a prepared one? If so, this is the one that I use when I want homemade (I don't have a recipe for it on my blog yet) https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/homemade-graham-cracker-crust Enjoy! :)

    December 31, 2017 at 12:54 am Hi, I searched for a recipe on Pinterest called Triple Layer Lemon Pudding Pie and yours is the first one I hit! And it’s the one I was looking for! How’s that for getting the first hit!? Anyho, my Question is...each box of instant lemon pudding asks for 2 cups of milk to make but your recipe asks for two boxes and to only use 2 cups milk for both boxes, am I reading your recipe right? Only using two cups milk would make the pudding really thick, is that right?

      January 5, 2018 at 11:18 am Disregard the box directions. It is 2 boxes with only 2 cups of milk. You want it thick so it holds up when sliced and what not. Enjoy and I'm so happy you found me!! 😊

        June 25, 2018 at 6:26 pm Mine didn't set πŸ˜ͺ. I left it in the fridge for 6 hours. What did I do wrong?

          June 30, 2018 at 7:13 pm Weird. I have never had this pie not set before. I can only think of two reasons why it would not set. 1) did you prepare the pudding mix before or just add the dry powder to other ingredients as called for in the recipe? Because if you prepared the pudding according to the box and then added the other ingredients then that would definitely make it too much liquid to even set at all. 2) When you stir the pudding mix, lemon juice, milk you need to let it sit for at least 3-5 minutes so that it can get thick. It takes a couple minutes to thicken up and then you add to the pie in the layer as the recipe calls for.

            June 30, 2018 at 8:26 pm Thanks for your reply. Maybe I didn't give it long enough, but it seemed thick. We all loved it anyway. I'm going to try the recipe again. Fingers crossed.

      May 23, 2018 at 10:15 pm Not sure, I have never tried using the sugar free pudding. The boxes are a much smaller size so either the layers will be thin or you will need several boxes. Not really sure as I have never done it.
