A Sweet Summer Treat: Lemonade Pie

Nothing says "summer" like a tall, cold glass of lemonade. This pie takes that cool sensation to a new level! A fellow camper shared one of these pies with us on our last beach trip and was kind enough to share the recipe. It is creamy and sweet/tart just like a key lime pie. Easy to make and a new favorite!

Gently fold in whipped topping.

Bring it Together

Spread the filling evenly in completely cooled crust and freeze until solid. 

Cut and serve immediately, topped with berries.

(Note: do NOT put the berries on before you freeze the pie. They get frozen to the pie topping!)
