Frozen Lemonade Pie


As much as we needed the rain, I was bummed out that it came on Friday and today. I had tons of work to do in the garden and got very little accomplished. Couldn't the rain have waited until tomorrow?

I made Michael one of his all-time favorite desserts - Frozen Lemonade Pie. It is one of the easiest things in the world to make. We embellished it a few years ago and added more graham cracker crumbs.

Frozen Lemonade Pie

(Makes 2 pies)

3 Graham Cracker Crusts
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk (chilled)
8 oz. Cool Whip (thawed)
12 oz. frozen lemonade (unthawed)

Fold the condensed milk and Cool Whip together. Add the frozen lemonade and gently fold.

Crush one of the pie crusts and stir the crumbs into the mixture.

Pour into the two remaining pie shells and freeze the pies for 6 hours or more until set. Store in freezer.

  1. Yum! I was a huge fan of Cool Whip as a kid -- could devour it ON ice cream or INSTEAD OF ice cream ;-)

    I still remember how my mom made me fresh whipped cream one time as a treat and I was like, "Um...this is good, but I think I prefer Cool Whip."

    I wish I could take that back and at least have pretended to spare her feelings and show my appreciation for the work that went into making that whipped cream.

    I like to think my palate has become a *little* more sophisticated since then and I've been thinking about whipping up some real cream someday soon (instead of using Readiwhip), but I still have a soft spot for Cool Whip... :P
