SnowPie2K16 - 14

It's Springtime and it's gorgeous here in West Texas. The pollen count is abnormally high, and so are the temperatures. I'm loving it, but it's looking like it may be a really hot summer.

This pie is one of my kids favorites. They've requested in place of birthday cake several times, and because I'm a fan they've gotten no complaints from me. 

It's an ice cream pie, so obviously it can be made in advance, if you've got the freezer room to store it, but the downside is you've got to let it freeze, so it can't really be a last minute dessert choice.

The original recipe came with regular lemonade, but we've done variations with pink lemonade, and my daughter's favorite, Strawberry Lemonade, which is what I get to share with you today. Enjoy!


1/3 cup Strawberry lemonade powdered mix (pre-sugared, not the packets)
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups vanilla ice cream (so glad Blue Bell is back!!!), softened
1 tub (8 oz) whipped topping (ie, Cool Whip), thawed
1 prepared (6 oz) graham cracker crust

Place drink mix in a large bowl. Add water and stir until mix is dissolved. Add ice cream. Beat with mixer until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Freeze at least 4 hours until firm.
