Description

My easy 5-ingredient Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie is sweet with a berry tang.  It’s summertime refreshing and when else can you prep THREE pies in just 10 minutes?  There’s plenty for sharing and it’s perfect for reunions, family gatherings and summer celebrations.  You’re gonna love this luscious cream cheese lemonade pie.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 (8 oz. pkgs.) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 (14 oz. cans) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 oz. can) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 2 (8 oz. tubs) Cool Whip
  • 3 (9″) graham cracker crusts
  • zest of two lemons

Instructions

  1. Beat the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth and creamy.  I used an electric hand mixer, but you can also do this with your stand mixer.
  2. Mix in the thawed lemonade concentrate and lemon zest.
  3. Use a spatula ( or large spoon) to add the Cool Whip to the mixing bowl.  Fold it in gently until everything is incorporated.  Using the mixer, your pie won’t be as fluffy and light so by hand is the way to go for this step.
  4. Divide the pie filling between the three crusts.  Smooth the filling to the crust edges.
  5. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
  6. Optional garnish ideas:  Fresh berries and mint leaves, whipped cream dollops and berries, etc.  We only garnish this pie if it is for company.  Otherwise we just slice it and serve.
  7. Storing Lemonade Cream Cheese Pie: The pies can be covered and stored for up to 4 days in the fridge.  They can also be frozen.  To freeze the pies after they are set up, place the pies on a baking tray and flash-freeze them for an hour or two.  Then you can cover them with a layer of plastic wrap and a top layer of foil without the pies sticking to the wrap.  Lemonade Cream Cheese Pie can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.   To thaw them, remove the covers immediately after taking the pies out of the freezer.  Allow them to rest on the counter for 15-30 minutes before slicing to serve.  Or thaw in the fridge until the pie is soft and creamy but still set.  You can also serve Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie frozen, if you like.  We just prefer the creamy luscious texture of the chilled and set filling.
