Icebox Pie

 

Our family enjoyed this pretty pink pie last week -- a quick and easy recipe from my friend Taryn. This recipe makes three pies, so in minutes you will have one to savor, one to save and one to share.



Icebox Pie
Enjoy this refreshing pie straight from the freezer.

3 graham cracker crusts
Large frozen juice concentrate, thawed
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
16 ounces whipped dairy topping, thawed
Food coloring
Mix juice, condensed milk and food coloring until blended. Fold in whipped dairy topping until blended. Pour into crusts. Freeze at least 4 hours. Serve frozen. (Note: I used pink lemonade frozen concentrate and pink food coloring. Taryn's family also recommends using orange, limeade or lemonade concentrate with coordinating food colorings.)





"I don't think a really good pie can be made without a dozen or so children peeking over your shoulder as you stoop to look in at it every little while."  -- John Gould

Your pie looks very pretty and I know it is good because my Mother used to make that recipe quite often but did not use food color. Without the coloring it is a pale creamy color. The addition of color makes yours even more appealing. Sandy

I just made three limeade pies this evening. I'm taking one to work tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this (I think I'll also slice some strawberries for the top)
