When Life Gives You Lemons …

30 May

Lemonade is a summer time favorite, and with Memorial Day being the kick off to summer, I knew creating a lemonade inspired dessert would complete my picnic menu. With assistance from my fabulous sister, I concocted a Frozen Lemonade Pie …Yum! It’s ridiculously refreshing and super quick to make –I’m the Queen of Quick (yet delicious!) Recipes!– In fact, there are only four ingredients required to create this little gem.

It had just stopped raining (and the sun came out!), when I took this picture and it created a rainbow effect on my picture .. pretty neat, right?

• 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
• 1 (12 ounce) container whip topping, thawed
• 1 (6 fluid ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, keep frozen
• Graham cracker crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar, and the melted butter. Press firmly on bottom and up sides of pie plate. Bake for 7 minutes and let cool completely. In a medium bowl, add chilled sweetened condensed milk and cool whip and fold gently. Add frozen lemonade and continue to gently fold. Do not let the mixture become soupy. Pour mixture into the pie crust and freeze overnight.

Happy Memorial Day! I’d love to hear what’s on your Memorial Day menu!

    How may cups of cracker crumbs do you need, or how many crackers, for the graham cracker crust.

      About 24 graham crackers … which equals about 1 1/2 of crumbs is perfect when you’re making a graham cracker crust!
