No-bake, no fuss… Millionaire Pie is simple to make and the best part is that it tastes delicious! There’s a very good reason this is one of the top recipes of all time on my blog!

We’ve served ambrosia salad at every holiday meal for as long as I can remember.  It’s such a great side and as a kid I always felt like I was having dessert with my dinner.  This pie has a similar flavor so if you like ambrosia salad, you’ll love this pie (plus pretty much anything with sweetened condensed milk has to be amazing right?!)!

This pie starts out with a base of sweetened condensed milk mixed with lemon juice (which causes it to thicken).  Once thickened, all of the yummy add-ins are mixed in including cherries, pineapple, coconut, and pecans.  It’s all poured into a graham crust and put in the fridge to set.

That’s it, no baking, no stove… just easy-peasy stir and pour!

You’ll want to make sure you squeeze out your pineapple as much as you can just to make sure your pie sets up well.  If you don’t have a store-bought graham crust, of course, this works with a homemade graham cracker crust.

Note:  If you do adapt this recipe to your tastes, do not leave out the lemon juice.  The addition of lemon juice thickens the pie and if you skip it your pie will be runny.

  1. Great Pie! I always make two at a time. The first disappears within 15 minutes after its made. I’ve been making this for over 49 years. A friend gave me a whole box of recipes as a wedding present, this was one of the best!!!5 stars

    1. I haven’t made this with whipping cream to so I’m not sure how it would set up. If you do try it, I would suggest adding a stabilizer to your whipped cream.

  2. The Millionaire pie was very good. I loved how the fruits and pecans came together and gave it almost an ambrosia taste. I will definitely make this pie again

  3. I love your recipes. I have numerous allergies and get bored of the sae old dishes. Your recipes offer our family fun, tasty, and some new safe for me options. Thank you for sharing!

    1. If the strawberries are fresh I would be concerned that they would release water into the pie so it wouldn’t set up as well. I haven’t tried it, so let us know how it goes if you do try it!

  4. Curious to know where the cover photo is from, since the video produces more of a pink pie..? And if it’s your photo, how were you able to keep it white instead of pink from the cherries?

    1. All images in this post are images I’ve personally taken and they’re all of the same recipe. If you dab off more of the juices from the cherries it won’t leak as much color. Hope that helps.

  5. Very good! I think by adding a few Tablespoons of lemon juice would stiffen up the cool whip a bit. Otherwise, delicious!4 stars

  6. Love seeing these recipes.amazing for those hard working parents that needs food in the table quick.
