There’s just something magical about a creamy pineapple pie. It brings back fond childhood memories of family gatherings and festive occasions. Pineapple, with its sweet and tangy flavor, pairs beautifully with a rich and smooth cream filling, making this pie a delightful treat. It’s easy to make, doesn’t require a ton of prep time, and is perfect for a weekend dessert or as a potluck favorite. Trust me, this pie will be your go-to when you need a dessert that impresses but doesn’t stress you out.

Creamy Pineapple Pie is a versatile dessert that pairs wonderfully with several side options. Consider serving it alongside a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream to complement its flavors. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more tropical, a side of fresh fruit salad works perfectly. For a more decadent experience, try it with a drizzle of caramel sauce or a sprinkle of toasted coconut on top. A hot cup of coffee or a tall glass of iced tea also makes for a delightful pairing.

Creamy Pineapple Pie

Servings: 8


1 prepared graham cracker crust

1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, drained

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 cup whipped topping

1 package (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix

3/4 cup cold milk


1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with the granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.

2. Add the drained crushed pineapple and mix until well combined.

3. In another bowl, whisk together the instant vanilla pudding mix and cold milk until the mixture begins to thicken.

4. Fold the pudding mixture along with the whipped topping into the cream cheese and pineapple mixture until fully blended.

5. Pour the filling into the prepared graham cracker crust, spreading it out evenly.

6. Refrigerate the pie for at least 4 hours, or until it is well set.

7. Before serving, optionally garnish with additional whipped topping and a sprinkle of toasted coconut or pineapple slices for an extra touch.

Variations & Tips

For a fun twist, you can add a layer of crushed graham crackers or chopped nuts between the crust and the filling for added texture. Alternatively, try swapping the graham cracker crust for a buttery shortbread or a chocolate cookie crust if you’re feeling adventurous. If you’re a fan of tangy flavors, a few spoonfuls of lemon or lime zest can be folded into the filling for a citrusy zing. For a lighter version, you can use light cream cheese and sugar-free pudding mix without sacrificing taste.
