Vanilla Lime Cream Pie

Vanilla Lime Cream Pie 

Yeah, I made up that title! My step-dad made this pie a few years back and it instantly became a family favorite!

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream (this would be the time to splurge on your favorite brand!)

1 12 oz. can frozen lime-aid

2 regular size graham cracker pie crusts


Scoop out entire contents of ice cream into a bowl and let soften. I don’t recommend letting it melt completely. Add entire contents of frozen lime-aid and blend. It’s MUCH easier to use an electric mixer & I don’t recommend using a rubber spatula (mine is still recovering it’s shape after being frozen!) Add juice of one lime then mix until smooth.

Pour into both pie crusts, recover and freeze until set.

Hi Shanna, I just found this recipe and want to try it because I have vanilla ice cream and I don't know what to do with it! What size can is the limeade, 6 or 12 ounces?

12 oz.

Good luck ;)
