What you need for 4 Ingredient Frozen Lemonade Pie
Frozen Lemonade Concentrate – Most cans of the concentrate are about 12oz so you’ll end up using about half for a pie. Consider using some frozen limeade concentrate or pink lemonade concentrate for this recipe if you’d like!
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Frozen Whipped Topping – Like Cool Whip.
Graham Cracker Pie Crust – You can use store-bought or make our No Bake Graham Cracker Crust. If you like, you could even use a store-bought or homemade Nilla Pie Crust as well!
How to make Lemonade Icebox Pie
Mix all the pie filling ingredients together into a smooth filling.
Transfer the mixed pie filling to the crust.
Let sit in the fridge or freezer until firm.
The first step to this recipe is mixing up your pie filling. We recommend doing this with a rubber spatula instead of something like an electric mixer. Using an electric mixer seems to overwork the pie and gets the filling too runny- even after refrigerating. Once that’s mixed up, pour it into your waiting pie crust. Note I did not use an electric mixer, the image above shows them by mistake.
After you’ve got that into the pie crust, all you need to do is transfer this pie to the fridge or freezer. Since one can of the lemonade concentrate is enough for two pies, we encourage you to make two and try it both ways!
In the fridge, it should only take a few hours for the pie to set up- if your fridge is cold enough, it could be set in as soon as two hours! Of course, you could also just wait overnight. In the freezer, it should set even quicker but- again- you could just let it sit overnight.
When it comes time to serve, we recommend dressing this pie up a bit with some nice garnishes. We like to hit ours with a bit of lemon zest for the nice smell it gives plus a lemon wheel and a couple of raspberries for color. Now cut off a slice of this stuff and enjoy!
