Easy recipe for a strawberry cream cheese pie, made with fresh strawberries, a creamy no bake filling, and a simple homemade crust. It's a family favorite!
Who doesn't love fresh berries from the strawberry patch, especially when you have the satisfaction of picking them yourself, then coming home to make them into a strawberry cream pie? It's the absolute best!
I have 3 boys who are all about the strawberries. If we bring strawberries home, I can barely get a strawberry shortcake or a quick batch of homemade strawberry jam in edgewise before the berries are all eaten up.
This no bake strawberry pie is one of the first things we make every single year with our berry haul. It really doesn't take a lot of berries either; though I'll admit, I do like to pile them on.
I make a similar version with blueberries every summer. Blueberry cream cheese pie is just as delicious as strawberry.
Just a few simple ingredients are all you need to make this easy strawberry cream pie. The hardest part is waiting for it to chill so all the juices have time to seep into the creamy filling and down into the crust, making it even more delicious than ever.

BUT FIRST, THE PIE CRUST
You will need a single pie crust, baked and ready to go, for this recipe. You can make a homemade pie crust, or you can just buy a ready made crust at the grocery store.
Or you can skip a regular crust altogether and make a graham cracker crust instead.
AND THEN THE CREAM CHEESE FILLING
The cream cheese filling in this no bake strawberry cream pie is just a simple, 3-ingredient, cream cheese filling; but it's oh so good, especially when you pair the creamy filling with the berries and the pie crust.
Let's get down to making and putting this pie together.
TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE
Gather together your ingredients… You'll need fresh strawberries, pure cane sugar, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and whole milk. That's it, easy peasy.
- Wash and slice the berries.
- Then mix them together with sugar to help the strawberries form a little juice.
- Mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk, and using a spatula, spread the creamy filling in the pie crust.
- Top with the berries; you can put as few or as many as you like. We prefer to pile our strawberry pie sky high with berries.
Chill the pie in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours. We think it tastes even better the next day, so if you're able to chill it overnight, go for it.
Then when you're ready to serve, just slice it up and serve!

Strawberry pie should keep in the freezer for about 6 months or less.
SHOP KITCHEN TOOLS FOR THIS RECIPE:
