Creamsicle Pie combines those classic creamy orange flavors in an easy no bake dessert! This pie can be served soft or can be frozen for a refreshing summertime treat!
Creamsicles are such a classic summertime snack. A tart orange shell filled with an ice-creamy center. Just looking at a creamsicle brings back memories of being a kid and eating them with my sister!
We used to walk down to the corner store on the days we were allowed to go to the “big park” and get ourselves a treat and then head to the playground.
I still love that classic flavor and this is definitely a dessert that is always loved by everyone! This pie takes just minutes to prepare with a creamy whipped topping and oranges. You can easily turn it into a creamsicle parfait for the same great flavor but portable, as well!
This recipe calls for Orange Extract and while you can you can make it without it adds some extra orange flavor making this delicious. It’s inexpensive and found in the baking aisle near the food coloring and vanilla.
This no bake jello pie can be served soft or you can put it in the freezer overnight for a frozen treat! We love it both ways!

Is it possible to use the juice from the orange you zest instead of the orange extract?
The orange extract offers a stronger flavor than the juice. If you do use the juice, just be sure there isn’t too much so the pie doesn’t become watery. :)
Thanks, I would use the same amount as the orange extract. I’ll let you know how it goes!
If you want to use the juice from the orange you are zesting I suggest that you measure it then add water, if needed, to equal the 2/3 cup called for in the recipe. It won’t give the same depth of flavor as extract but would be a good use for the remainder of the orange after zesting.
I would put some orange juice on the stove and reduce it to a sec. and use that
We often use that for making citrus beurre blanc
is it possible to substiture real whipped cream for the cool whip as I don’t like or eat the product? I await your reply,
I haven’t tried it that way, but I think it would work. If you do try it, please let us know!
I wouldn’t try this with whipped heavy cream instead of non-dairy topping. The structure isn’t the same and you may not get the volume you need. Whipping cream tends to break down as well as deflate quickly in such applications. If you are going to try it you may want to refrigerate the gelled mixture until not quite set so that the temperature of it doesn’t melt your whipped cream & I would definitely freeze it as it may not set up properly. Good luck to anyone who attempts it & please do let the rest of us know the result.
Of course you can do it with heavy whipping cream instead When you make the whipped cream you have to make a stabilized whipped cream using Knox Gelatin. It is easy to do and works the same as that nasty Cool Whip and is better for you…not saying healthier, just better!
Thanks for recently linking this delicious recipe to my Tasty Thursdays party. It is being featured in my Fantastic Fruit – Week #4 – Oustanding Oranges post.
Will this pie work with sugar free Jello?
While I haven’t made this specific pie with sugar free jello, I have made a VERY similar one that worked with sugar free… I find it to be a little bit softer with sugar free so I would recommend serving it frozen!
Thanks. I have a friend with diabetes and I think she would enjoy this pie.
