Lemonade Ice cream pie

Lemonade Ice Cream Pie is perfect for the warmer seasons of the year, but also for any time. Try this recipe out, and add any variations that you like. I LOVE lemons, always have, and love ice cream so this seems like something easy and fun to make. It ends up having a lemon vanilla cream flavor to it. Using the frozen lemonade concentrate is part of what makes this so easy. I like that you need not turn on the oven in the summer time for this yummy treat.

You store this pie in the freezer, so its nice on a hot day. The vanilla ice cream, and the graham cracker crust really make it a fun treat that you need to try at least once. Garnish with mint leaves or maraschino cherries to make it extra fun. Have some cool whip or whipped cream on hand as well.

Ingredients:

One can frozen lemonade concentrate, partially thawed. (You can use the yellow or pink lemonade. I usually just use yellow and have fun with the garnishes.)

One container of your favorite vanilla ice cream, softened a bit. You want one pint of ice cream.

One tub of cool whip dairy topping, thawed

zest from one half of a lemon, and a little juice

One prepared graham cracker crumb crust, (or you can make your own with butter and crushed graham crackers and cooked in the oven for a bit.)

To Garnish the pie: I like to have some fresh mint sprigs to put in the middle of the finished pie for garnish. You can add pieces of maraschino cherries as well, or cut up and made into a fun design. Strawberries or blueberries make a nice addition as well. Be creative and have fun.

Directions for Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

Directions:

First, with an electric mixer (for ease), beat the lemonade concentrate, and add lemon zest and juice.  Spoon in the ice cream slowly.  Mix until well blended, then mix in the whipped topping until its smooth.  If this mixture is getting too "defrosted", freeze it a little until it will mound for you. 

Next, spoon your mixture into the graham cracker pie crust. 

Freeze your pie for about four hours, or until it is firm. 

To serve, take out pie and let sit for a bit until its soft enough to cut. 

Strawberries, cherries, and mint leaves make the pie look extra nice, but are not necessary. 

Storage:  Put uneaten pie in freezer with top on it, and save for later. 

Will serve about 8 people

      oceanssunsets, I don't know what it is about lemons that just gets me going. I love lemonade, lemon pie, lemon ice cream and lemons on just about anything under the sun. I don't like that famous saying about lemons, because if life gave me lemons there wouldn't any reason for me to complain, not that there is as it stands....

      Awesome hub - voted up

      SweetiePie, I hear you about the lemon meringue pie! I love that too, and this is a nicer, easier pie to make. So glad you visited, and left a comment, thank you. :)

      This sounds delicious! I love lemonade and lemon meringue pie. This sounds much easier than making a lemon meringue pie, which I rarely do because that is so much work.
