Tangy Summer Citrus Pie

My aunt claims that she is not a good cook, but whenever she brings something over for a holiday dinner, it is gone within minutes. One of her specialties that she makes for the 4th of July and my July birthday each year is her signature citrus pie. I celebrated the 4th alone this year, being that I am not living at home this summer and I decided that my solo celebration could not be complete without one of my Aunt Lynette’s famous pies, so I decided to make one for myself! Oh, did I also mention I have no kitchen? It is being remodeled and I have limited cooking supplies. Lucky for me, this recipe is 1. cheap for a college student 2. quick to make and 3. super easy! I was so pleased with the first one that I spiced up the recipe and made a second one that was raspberry!

You will need:

1 can of frozen lemonade (any flavor) (6 oz.)

1/2 tub of Cool Whip

1 pint of vanilla ice cream

1 premade graham cracker pie crust

Blend together with a beater mixer until smooth. Pour in a pre made graham cracker crust and freeze until hard. Finish with fresh or frozen fruit on top for taste or decoration.

 

I had extra, so I put graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of a muffin tin and poured the excess there for mini citrus pies!
