Turn a favorite childhood drink into a cool and refreshing treat!
Does anything else scream “summer!” more than Kool-Aid? We definitely remember indulging in an ice cold glass or two on long hot days as children, and our kiddos are notorious for rocking Kool-Aid mustaches. While the drink is delicious, we’d never thought to cook with it… until now! This Kool-Aid pie is refreshing, super easy to make, and doesn’t require an oven (just pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours), making it the perfect summer treat to cool down with. We’re fans of classic cherry, but whatever flavor you decide on, we know you’re gonna love it!
