Recipe: Limeade Pie.

I've seen this recipe go by many names: Limeade Pie, Icebox Pie, Daiquiri Pie. No matter which one it goes by, it's still a super easy recipe that's great for any spring or summer get-together. (Or fall, depending on where you live and how surprisingly warm it's turned outside.) It involves just a handful of ingredients and is perfect if you have kids who like to help out in the kitchen.

If you've never tried this kind of pie before, it tastes like a cross between a key lime pie and a cheesecake. 

Adjusted from Daiquiri Pie recipe found on Cooks.com

8 oz. cream cheese
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
6 oz. frozen limeade, thawed
1/2 container whipped topping
1 graham cracker pie crust
Few drops of green food coloring
1 lime for garnishing

1. Beat cream cheese, condensed milk, and limeade until smooth. Add food coloring and mix thoroughly. 

Note: When I made this pie, I added one drop of green and one drop of yellow food coloring. I wanted the pie to have a citrusy color, but not be fake looking. Remember to add color sparingly: Over-coloring your food is a hell you can almost never return from.

2. Fold in whipped topping. You may have to mix to break up any lumps. 

3. Pour into graham cracker crust and freeze about three hours. Garnish with lime slices.

If you have a sweet tooth, this pie is for you. I've read that you can use other frozen concentrate mixes- lemonade, strawberry, pina colada- and the rest of the recipe works just the same. I'd suggest saving this  dessert for an indoor party where you can be near a freezer. Otherwise, this sweet treat will melt into limeade goo. Also, you can make this recipe completely "homemade" by making your own graham cracker crust.
