Raspberry Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

Raspberry Lemonade Ice Cream PieOur family has been making this fresh, light, delicious dessert for a long time.  It started on one of our summer vacations.  It was an easy dessert to make, while staying in a condo, because it doesn’t call for a lot of ingredients, and it doesn’t have to be baked.  Raspberry Lemonade Ice Cream PieAnyway, we loved it from the beginning, and now it’s a tradition.  Even though it’s cool and refreshing, we don’t just make it in the summer, anymore.  This pie can be (and is) enjoyed all year long! Raspberry Lemonade Ice Cream Pie… And … just so you know, I have a confession.  I don’t always use the fresh lemon juice because, frankly, sometimes I’m too lazy.  The juice makes the pie more tangy, but it’s still wonderful without.  What I’m saying is, … I recommend using it, but the pie won’t be ruined without it.

Here's a helpful tip: To make the pie easier to remove from the plate, set it in a sink with about 1/2 inch of hot water. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes, just take care not to get any water in (or on) the pie.
