Frozen Lemonade Pie – 4 Ingredient

I found this little oddity of a recipe in my Mom’s recipe box, credited to my Aunt Mary. I think I have some very vague memories of this Frozen Lemonade Pie when we used to share a cabin at “The Lakes.”

Swimming and sunburns and trampolines & mini-golf. And this pie. No air conditioning back then, but this would cool us off.

I make a couple killer lemon desserts, like this special occasion extravaganza, Lemon Curd Mousse Cake, but yesterday with no-shame (well, maybe a little shame) I plunked a grocery store crust in a pan, stirred the filling together and froze this pie.

Five minutes, folks. That’s right, five minus plus thaw and freeze time. I just had to see if this tasted as good as I remembered.

Verdict: It’s darn good. Really. Surprisingly good. I am still having a hard time about the Cool Whip in this. What can I say?

Happy Memorial Day, folks and be safe. And remember a loved one that served. 🙂 And eat your pie fast, before it melts. 🙂 Don’t stand around like an idiot taking pictures of it, lol!

  1. What a gorge dessert for the hot weather! My gals would go gaga for this. Sadly, only the condensed milk is available in Australia so I will just have to settle at looking at your photos x

  2. Ha! It is funny how some ingredients do come with a little shame, but we give in every once in a while anyway! This sounds perfect for a hot and busy summer weekend. And you made it look so beautiful to boot! I hope you had a great weekend!

  3. We ate that stuff from time to time growing up and lived to tell the tale. Love it Mollie!! I also would have a tough time with the cool whip but it works and I bet it is wonderful!!! Happy Memorial Day!!!🇺🇸
