White Chocolate Frozen Mixed Berry Pie is a sweet combination of your favorite summer berries whipped up in a graham cracker crust with a white chocolate drizzle.
A perfectly beautiful pie doesn’t matter unless it’s also crazy delicious and this frozen mixed berry pie with a graham cracker crust is everything good about summer. Especially when it’s summer and you need something frozen to cool off.
And just look how gorgeous it is but your secret is that there’s a very short ingredient list.
When I was a little girl my parents had this big shed and one year my dad built a fantastic playhouse on top of the shed.
It was the greatest moment of my childhood.
I spent every day up in that playhouse. We had a little white play kitchen and I’d spend all day whipping up pretend berry pies and strawberry shortcakes for my babies. Oh, didn’t you know? Being a mother was my dream.
I thought that motherhood would be snuggling and singing, dandelions sitting in little mason jars in my window and chubby hands holding mine.
And it is.
But motherhood is also the exhaustion that hits you so deep, so real that you don’t know how you can possibly ever make it through another sleepless night.
It’s the worrying and the aching when you send your first little one off to school knowing that they don’t know a single soul there. Praying that please, please someone will see them and befriend them because no one, especially not the little ones should ever be alone.
Yes, motherhood is the greatest, it certainly is the hardest, but most of all it is the life changing.
It is the only thing in the world that makes you breath in the newness of life and be totally willing to give your own to save it. It’s the only thing that can truly teach you about love. The kind that someone can have for you and you can have for another.
This white chocolate frozen berry pie kind of reminds me of those days, the ones where I watched my own mother dance through life, always willing to look at my pretend pies while she created her own for us to enjoy after dinner.
My pies were often mud with flowers stuck in the tops, but in my mind, they were as beautiful as this one and motherhood would be as well. And it is.
White Chocolate Frozen Mixed Berry Pie
This frozen mixed berry pie kind of tastes like an ice cream pie but you don’t need an ice cream machine to make it happen. I really love that addition of the white chocolate, oh it’s just so creamy and perfect. It’s the pie of every little girl’s dreams and every mother’s needs, because momma might be sweet but she’s also tired and needs a sweet break.
Grocery List for a Frozen Berry Pie
- Graham Crackers (or a Graham Cracker Crust but I much more prefer a homemade)
- Heavy Cream
- Mixed Berries
- White Chocolate
You can use any mixed berries that you’d like. Costco sells that big bag with lots of berries but even just raspberries and strawberries are so wonderful. In fact, I love it no matter what gets used!
How to Make a Graham Cracker Pie Crust
- Use a blender, food processor or even a zip top bag and a rolling pin to evenly crush the crackers.
- Add the melted butter and sugar and stir to combine.
- Press evenly into a pie dish and then bake.
- Allow to cool completely.
Preparing the White Chocolate
Oh Sweet Basil Pro Tip:
White chocolate burns and turns grainy incredibly quickly. This can be very frustrating.
In order to avoid this from happening add a little cream to the white chocolate to make it silky and smooth.
Continue to whisk the chocolate while it is heating to avoid any scorching.
Pour only 2 tablespoons of the white chocolate in the crust and spread it out. Set aside 1 tablespoon for the drizzle.
Blending the Berries and White Chocolate
The most important part about blending your berries is in the blender. We still have our promo code for Blendtec running, just use: OHSWEETBASIL20 for 20% off.
It’s worth it to have a good blender as you’ll end up with a chunky and unappetizing filling without it.
Just blend the berries and the remaining white chocolate until smooth.
Berry Pie Filling
Beat the remaining cream until it becomes soft and thick and then add the powdered sugar and beat until peaks form.
If you don’t have powdered sugar: You could use regular sugar, about 2 tablespoons.
Folding Whipped Cream into Filling
This is my favorite part!!!
In all my life there has never been anything more satisfying than stirring some big bowl of fluffy stuff.
I’d stir everything until my mom would lose her mind, “Carrian, stop stirring your potatoes all over your plate.” But it’s just so satisfying!! This is the best job that you can give your kids, they will love the sensory dive and eventually they will love cooking too!
- Be sure that you’re folding by scraping a rubber spatula around the filling, down under the filling and then lifting up and folding the mixture over onto itself. Lift out the spatula, turn the bowl and do it again.
And now you’ve made it to the worst part of pie making, the waiting.
Set the pie in the freezer until set. Meanwhile, clean up the kitchen. I know you don’t want to, but it’s the best thing you can do for yourself and your kids. It only takes a few minutes but if you don’t then when you do go to clean it’s a bigger hassle to scrape up dried bits.
Once the pie is totally set, go ahead and decorate however you please.
I like to drizzle my white chocolate and let it sit for a minute before you add anything else. This will help to avoid any chocolate being disturbed.
Garnishes for Berry Pie
There are a lot of different ways to garnish a frozen pie, but I tend to love a really fresh and natural looking pie, so berries are my top pick. In case you want a list of ideas, here’s a few more.
- Fresh Berries
- Powdered Sugar
- Whipped Cream
- Mint Leaves
- Sugared Berries
- Edible Flowers
Can You Buy Graham Cracker Crumbs Instead of Making Them?
Yes, buying graham cracker crumbs will work just fine. The only reason I don’t do this is that I love a little more texture in my pie crust and freshly ground graham cracker crumbs are more flavorful.
How Do You Keep A Graham Cracker Crust From Getting Soggy?
The best way to keep a graham cracker crust from getting soggy, is to bake it for 8 minutes and let it cool completely before filling.
In addition to that, a coating on the crust such as white chocolate or chocolate will set and create a barrier between the crust and the filling. It will also help to keep the crust stable as you cut it.
How Long Will a Frozen Pie Keep?
Wrap your pie carefully in saran wrap and it will keep in the freezer for another two weeks.
Unfortunately a frozen pie will begin to form ice crystals just like a tub of ice cream. Because of this you’re not going to want to keep it for too long.

Hi, I haven’t made this yet because I was wondering if instead of fresh berry’s for garnish could you make a coulis for a garnish ? If so is there one you could recommend ?
Hi Susie! Yes, a coulis would work great on this pie! Head to our Mini Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce and use that recipe (https://ohsweetbasil.com/bake-mini-cheesecakes-raspberry-sauce/). You can replace the raspberries with any berries you want. Enjoy!
