Lemonade Pie

Over the Memorial Day weekend, I went a little crazy making food for our family get together. Considering that we were only having two people over and there is five of us, I made enough to feed an Army! But it was fun. And, of course, I had to make dessert. Being that I was so tired from making all the salads, drinks, and other food for the party, the dessert had to be simple. Plus it was over 90 degrees here that day, so the dessert also had to be light and refreshing. This recipe was perfect. It was so simple and so good. It's great for a picnic or get together or just on a hot summer night.

Lemonade Pie

1 store bought graham cracker pie crust
1 14 oz size sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1 12 oz container Cool Whip, thawed
1 6 oz can frozen lemonade concentrate, still frozen

In a bowl, gently fold the condensed milk and the Cool Whip together until blended. Add the frozen lemonade concentrate and stir until mixed. Pour into the pie shell and freeze several hours or overnight.

"We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.”

Hi Linda! It's nice to meet you. The pie is so simple it's ridiculas. I actually thought it might not turn out, but it did. I hope you enjoy it too. Thanks for your comment and I hope I see you again soon!

Sounds refreshing - perfect for these hot days we've been having.

It has been hot, especially for early June. It has cooled off a lot here this week though, thank goodness. Hopefully you will have the same soon! Thanks Sweet!

I'm with Sweet Virginia Breeze---this sounds absolutely perfect for these oppressively hot days we've been having here. I find myself not wanting to cook or eat anything hot. Thanks, Mary Ann!

I agree Beth. It's going to be in the 90's again here in Pittsburgh the next few days. Ugh! With this kind of whether, I might as well be in the South :)

Love the quote! The pie looks and sounds wonderful. I love easy, light dishes in summer. It was in the 90s for 2 wks. here, then 3 just beautiful days, now back to the muggies and 90s. At least I got my yard mowed. lol. Have a good weekend and thanks for coming by.

That sounds yummy! But I am on a diet. :-(

Judy- ugh, that is hot weather. It's been cool here this week, thank goodness!

Anita- Diets, yuk. I am on one myself. My brother was home last week and he cooked. His idea of cooking is making enough for an army (well, in his case the Navy :) Now I have a big belly I've got to get rid of. I can't make more pie until next month, at least.

Okay, I just got the ingredients for this today. Tomorrow it's going to be hot and so it'll be a good day to make it! I'll report back.

I can't wait to hear how it turns out. I'm always tickled when someone makes a recipe I post.

Did I say in the post to keep it frozen? Oh gosh, I hope so. If you keep it in the fridge is is very soft but either way, it's so addicting.
