How to Make a Frozen Lemonade Pie

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and set it aside.

Step 2

To make the homemade graham cracker crust, place the graham crackers in a large Ziploc bag and seal it. Using a rolling pin, crush the graham crackers into fine crumbs. You can also use a food processor if you prefer. (See Tips, Tricks, and FAQs for a no-bake crust tip).

Step 3

Add the graham cracker crumbs into a medium mixing bowl with the melted butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Combine the ingredients together. Press the crust mixture into the pie plate.

Step 4

Bake the crust in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool before filling it with the lemonade mixture.

Step 5

In a large mixing bowl, combine the whipped topping, vanilla extract, ice cream, lemonade concentrate, and lemon extract, and mix everything together. You can use a handheld electric mixer or simply a whisk.

Step 7

Place into the freezer and allow the pie to chill and set. This will about take at least 6 hours. To serve, remove from freezer and allow the pie to sit out for 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife that has been soaking in hot water will help slice the pie easier. Top with whipped cream if desired.

Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Use a store-bought premade graham cracker crust to make this a true No Bake recipe.
  • Try using crushed lemon cookie crumbs as the crust or vanilla wafers.
  • Love pink lemonade? Substitute the lemonade concentrate for pink lemonade concentrate.
  • Try limeade concentrate if you want a frozen lime pie.
  • Want more lemon flavor? Add a teaspoon of fresh lemon zest to the filling.
  • Homemade whipped cream is not recommended to use in the lemonade pie filling.
  • Freeze the pie for one hour then cover it with plastic wrap. The filling won’t stick to the plastic wrap when you remove it.
  • Keep frozen until ready to serve. It can be made days before and kept in the freezer.
  • Allow the frozen pie to sit out for about 10 minutes for easier slicing.
  • Some lemonade pies do use sweetened condensed milk, this uses vanilla ice cream instead.
