If you dream of pineapple desserts that will delight your family, look no further than this easy Pineapple Refrigerator Pie recipe.
A Pineapple Lover’s Dream – No Bake Pineapple Refrigerator Pie
This no bake Pineapple Refrigerator Pie recipe is perfect for summer parties, although you’ll find that it’s a delightful, quick and easy dessert all year long. It’s made with cream cheese, whipped topping, crushed pineapple in a no-bake graham cracker crust.
When it comes to making pies, this one is the lightest hands down, but it is so tasty with a filling that will have you coming back for seconds.
I like this recipe because it takes less than 10 minutes to make. The hard part, however, is allow the filling to set. Which is a small price to pay when you think about the final results.
Best of all, it can be doubled (or tripled) to make multiple pies in a flash.
Now, for this dreamy, creamy pineapple recipe I used a premade store-bought graham cracker crust. But you don’t have to limit yourself to this product. You can make yours homemade.

If you do choose to make either of these types of crusts, be sure that the pie shells are fully cooled before filling.
Now you are ready to make your own Pineapple Refrigerator pie. Here’s how:
