Pink Lemonade Pie

Just a quick post tonight.  I'm all drained from my two whole days back to work after vacation...phew!  But I wanted to share this yummy pie that we had on Father's Day.  It got great reviews from the whole family.

sorry about the junk in the background

This pie is just about as easy as it gets.  Just need to give it plenty of time to firm up in the freezer before you serve it.  Even when I left it overnight, it still never froze completely solid.  

Here's the recipe: (from Recipezaar)
1 16 oz can frozen pink lemonade, thawed
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
8 oz cool whip, thawed
1 graham cracker crust

Mix together first 3 ingredients until creamy.  Pour into crust and freeze until set.


Also, I've neglected to mention I was winner once again! I just love blog giveaways :)  My latest winning is a Sam's Club gift card I won from  Chris of Nibble Me This.  


I can't decide what I want to do with it, might just save it for the daughter's birthday in a couple of months.  Thanks, Chris!

I just copied this recipe because it looks like something my family would love! So summery and refreshing!!

Kim said...

I've never thought of making this pie with the pink lemonade. The recipe I have is for the regular lemonade, which is great, but not that fab pink color like yours ;)
This is probably my very favorite summertime dessert. And, I totally agree....it's much better served straight out of the freezer.

Yum....definitely going to have to make this.
