The Best Berry Icebox Pie

The Best Berry Icebox Pie is a delicious and refreshing dessert that features a creamy filling and a burst of fresh berry flavors. It is a no-bake pie that sets in the refrigerator, making it perfect for warm weather or any time you want a cool and satisfying treat.

The crust of the pie is typically made with graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and a touch of sugar. It provides a crunchy and buttery base for the luscious berry filling.

The filling consists of a combination of fresh berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a mix of your favorites) that are lightly sweetened and thickened with a mixture of sugar, cornstarch, and sometimes a splash of lemon juice. This mixture is then folded into whipped cream or a creamy mixture to create a light and fluffy texture.

The pie is assembled by pouring the berry filling into the crust and chilling it in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. This allows the flavors to meld together and the filling to set, resulting in a creamy and velvety texture.

When ready to serve, the pie can be garnished with additional fresh berries, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness and decoration.

Whether enjoyed during summertime gatherings, holidays, or any time you're craving a delightful dessert, this pie is sure to be a hit.

The Best Berry Icebox Pie Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream (homemade or store-bought)


  1. In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Mix well until the crumbs are evenly coated with the butter and sugar.
