I needed a dessert for a party a few weeks ago. Chicken Legs suggested a lemon pie. I didn't want to make my usual lemon pie, so I decided to test out this Frozen Lemon Ice Box Pie. Well, it is really a Frozen Lemon Ice Cream Pie since the pie filling is a no-churn lemon ice cream.
Have you ever made no-churn ice cream? I love no-churn ice cream. It is made with whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk. I got to thinking that a lemon ice box pie is basically sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. SO, why not make a Frozen Lemon Ice Box Pie?!?!
It turned out fantastic! The pie comes right out of the pan after it is frozen. Perfect slices every time. All you need is a little dollop of whipped cream and dessert is served! This is the best way to cool off in this brutal summer heat!
Frozen Lemon Ice Box Pie
serves 6 to 8
- 1 store-bought graham cracker crust
- 2 cup heavy cream
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 lemons (1 zested, 3 juiced)
Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks. Fold in sweetened condensed milk, zest of one lemon, and juice from all three lemons.
Spread ice cream into graham cracker crust. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer. Freeze for 6 hours, or until set.
