If you are heading to a fun bbq or pool party (now that the weather is heating up!), you want to make sure to bring a tasty dessert along with the fabulous potato salad (recipe below). Dessert is my favorite and I’m always tempted to order a slice of pie at a restaurant. I recently had the key lime pie at King’s Fish House in Tempe and it was delicious! But, like I’ve said before, ordering drinks, appetizers and desserts while out to eat really adds up! As a college student, this pie recipe won’t cost you much and it tastes delicious, plus it’s super simple! Similar to the key lime pie, it’s tart and refreshing! Here is what you need:
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate, partially thawed
1 pint (2 cups) vanilla ice cream, softened
1 tub (8 ounces) cool whip topping, thawed
1 prepared graham cracker crumb crust (6 ounces)
Directions: Beat concentrate in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed for about 30 seconds. Gradually spoon in ice cream and beat until blended. Gently stir in cool whip until smooth. If necessary, freeze until mixture will mound. Spoon into crust. Freeze for four hours until firm. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or until pie can be cut easily. Garnish with strawberries. Store leftovers in freezer.
It can’t get much simpler than that! This pie is perfect during the warm summer months!
