I could have titled this "The Best Spring Dessert Ever" or "Tasty Easter Dessert" or "The Easiest Dessert Ever", because it's all of those things! Actually, around our house, Pink Lemonade Pie is my husband's favorite dessert so we have it year round for holidays, his birthday, or as a quick dessert to make a week night just a bit more special. I learned to make it from his Mom shortly after we got married, and have been making it for almost 23 years ever since!
This is so easy it doesn't even need an explanation, but I snapped a few pictures during the process anyway. If you can dump and stir, you've got yourself a scrumptious dessert that everyone will love.
A few notes about the ingredients... you can use regular Cool Whip, but the Extra Creamy helps the pie set up better. Only use 1/2 of the can of lemonade (or just a splash extra for a bit more tang). If you can find a 6 oz. can, great! I just never see that size in the store anymore. My kids are always happy to drink the leftovers when I mix it up. If you want your pie to really appear pink, you'll need to add a few drops of red food coloring, but that is totally optional.
Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl, and stir with a whisk until well combined.
Pour mixture into pie crust.
Spread filling and smooth out top.
Replace lid and chill for a few hours or overnight. Pie can be chilled in the freezer or refrigerator, but I usually put it in the freezer. It really firms up well but can still be easily sliced when ready to serve.
I'm curious, is this one of your family's favorites, too? Or do you make a different version of this icebox pie that's yummy?
