No Bake Pumpkin Fluff Pie

Sharing is caring!

Fall is probably my favorite time of year in terms of desserts: apples, spices, pumpkin, salted caramel! YUM. Of course, one of the most classic autumn (and holiday) desserts is pumpkin pie!

Today, we’re bringing you a fresh new spin on this iconic fall treat. This No-Bake Pumpkin Fluff Pie is a great recipe to have in your arsenal because (as the name would indicate) it requires no baking whatsoever. This makes it a good one to keep in mind for  Thanksgiving, when you know your oven is going to already be in high demand!

NOTE: If you homeschool or have children or grandchildren who enjoy doing fun educational activities with you, take a look at our Pumpkin Unit Study ideas on our sister site, Only Passionate Curiosity! After you do the unit study together, you can top off your study by making and eating this pie together!

This pie is also pretty much a guaranteed crowd-pleaser with its two creamy, pumpkin-y layers: one with vanilla ice cream and one with marshmallow fluff!

It’s also super easy to make and requires only 6 ingredients! If you have a child who likes to help out in the kitchen, this would be a fun one to hand over to him or her! Truly, the only difficult thing about this delicious pie is waiting for it to freeze before digging in.

To start out, you’re going to combine your canned pumpkin, vanilla ice cream, and cinnamon in a stand mixer or hand mixer

Whip it! Whip it good! 😉

This mixture will make up the bottom layer of your Pumpkin Fluff Pie, so you can go ahead and pour it into your pre-bought pie crust.

If you are gluten-free, the pie crust will be the only substitution you’d need to make for this pie. This gluten free gingerbread pie crust would be extra tasty!

While your first layer of the the pie sets up in the freezer, you’ll put together the top layer.

Clean out your mixing bowl and add the remaining pumpkin and cinnamon, along with the Marshmallow Fluff (specific amounts in recipe below).

Beat on medium for about a minute, scraping down bowl half way through. (It will be kind of runny, and that’s okay.)

After you scrape down the sides, add the Cool Whip and beat for about 30 seconds until combined.

At this point, you’ll put the bowl with marshmallow/ Cool Whip component in the freezer for about 20 minutes. This just gives it a a chance to get a little more solid and, well, fluffy.

After 20 minutes, you can take the bowl out and pour out/spread the “fluff” layer onto the top of your pie.

After this, all you have to do is pop it into the freezer for about 6 hours. Easy, right? Like I said, the only hard part is waiting to eat it!

To serve this No Bake Pumpkin Fluff Pie, just pull it out of the freezer about 15-20 minutes before you plan on eating it. If it’s not creamy enough for you (though I doubt this would be the case), you can also serve it with some extra whipped topping! We hope you enjoy it!
