Layers of cookies, lemon cream, and fresh fruit makes this No Bake Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie a delicious and easy recipe to make on hot summer days.
Most of the time when crazy dessert ideas go through my head they are full of chocolate and peanut butter. My husband just shakes his head and asks why everything has to be this combo.
Yes, he is kind of sort of crazy because he would rather have fruit instead of chocolate.
But because I love him, I let crazy fruit desserts enter my mind every once in a while. He is one heck of a dad to our three kids, takes care of us no matter what, and works hard to provide for our family!
We are blessed to have him in our lives for sure! So if he wants fruity desserts, I'm there for him!
Last summer this Lemon Cream Berry Pie happened in our kitchen. I used that pie and this Lemon Cream Fruit Dip as inspiration to create a new no-bake pie with an easy cookie crust.
How to make an Oreo cookie crust:
- Pulse cream filled cookies in a food processor.
- Stir in melted butter and press the mixture into a pie plate.
- Refrigerate while you prep the pie filling.
Pro Tip: Do not remove the cream centers. The filling helps everything stick together with less butter.
How to make a No Bake Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie:
- Stir together cookie crumbs and butter. Press evenly on the bottom and sides of a pie plate. (full recipe at bottom of post)
- Beat cream cheese until creamy. Add lemon curd and beat again.
- Fold in Cool Whip gently. Spread filling in bottom of prepared cookie crust.
- Top the pie with the remaining Cool Whip.
- Add strawberry slices and blueberries on the top of the pie.
You can arrange the sliced berries on top any way you like. I decided to go with a flower pattern with blueberries added here and there for a pop of color.
Start from the outside of the pie and work your way in, one circle at a time.
Make sure you refrigerate the lemon cream pie long enough, so it sets up properly. The pie will come out of your pie plate with no struggles if it is firm enough.
I was a little too excited to slice into this gorgeous lemon pie, so my slices didn't exactly look the greatest. I think I only let it sit in the fridge for about an hour. 3-4 hours would be a lot better.
But holy cow! This no bake pie tasted so good, so who needs pretty pieces anyway!

No bake desserts are the best! Love the strawberries with the lemon cream pie. This is so great for the 4th as well!
In this heat, I'm all about the no bake and the fruit too! This is a great combo of both. From what you write about your husband, he deserves it!
He is the best!!!! No bake and fruity gets two thumbs up in the summer!!!
Julia @ Sprinkled With Jules
This is so pretty! I wouldn't mind a not perfect looking piece if I could eat it faster! Who has the patience to wait? 🙂
And seriously it tasted the same eating it early or eating it after it set up better! I have no patience when it comes to goodness like this!!!

This is not only perfect for summer but what a great 4th of July treat!
Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness
I thought my husband was the only crazy man who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?! How does that even happen!
BUT, I love this fruity, no oven required pie. It's hot out there and this is my kind of refreshing! Pinned!
I'm thinking they are part alien or something like that. I mean come on, chocolate is the best! But fruity no bake comes in pretty close second!

I need a slice of this in my life asap!
I would have to agree with you there!!!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
Oh I love those Lemon Oreos 🙂 And I'm kinda with your hubby on this one..I love the fruity desserts too!
I'm slowly converting to the fruity desserts, but I still would rather have a slice of chocolate goodness!!!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
You had me at no-bake, Jocelyn! This pie is right up my alley! I love the strawberry and lemon combo. So perfect for the summer!
Strawberry and lemon just go together so well!!! Add in no bake and this is a killer summer treat!
