a delicious oops!

our sweet Aunt B broke her leg a couple weeks ago,
so drew and i have been taking dinner over
every week to help out.
i was running around getting groceries to take
for this week's meal (tacos!!!)
and i thought to myself,
"self, what is a deliciously-yummy-summer-y
-fresh dessert that would be delightful to take?"
then, i passed the cake/sweets isle...
and there they were
{graham cracker crusts}
 lemonade pie!!!
its so perfect for summer anytime!
so, even though everyone
and their cousin's brother's friend
knows how to make lemonade pie,
i've decided to blog about it anyways, it was my first. 
don't worry, the oops is coming!

1. ingredients: graham cracker crusts, cream cheese,
whipped topping, and pink lemonade
(one can makes 2 pies,
 you can substitute limeade too)
2. use pink mixing bowls to combine ingredients

3. okay, i guess the mixing bowls don't have to be pink
but i promise, it will taste better if you
use the color you LOVE

4. a pink spatula never hurt, either
add 1/2 can of pink lemonade
5. mix, preferably with pink kitchen-aid mixer,
or color of choice
(yes, those are pink straws in the background,
i prefer to drink from a pink straw when possible)
6. is my obsession with PINK getting scary?!?
pour into pie crust

7. lookie there, even the pie is a pinkish color
put that dainty little piece of heaven
right into the freezer to "set up"

8. get an e-mail from you mom telling you the recipe,
after you've already made 2 pies

1 small can frozen lemonade
1 tub cool whip
1 can eagle brand milk
1 tsp lemon juice

i totally used cream cheese
instead of eagle brand milk

i told drew what i'd done and he said
"oh that's why it was so rich,
but it was awesome, i liked the tiny bits of cream cheese"
me: "that's because i didn't mix it long enough"
drew: "oh, well it was my favorite part"

well, good to know it works either way
what recipe do you use???
Happy Thursday!


  1. My recipe is called go buy it from the store LOL I am TERRIBLE at cooking. I just don't Enjoy cooking and I don't know why. Thankfully mister wonderful grills out all the time so I don't really have to cook. :)

  2. Looks/sounds yummy! I like the idea of using cream cheese over the other stuff anyway. :)

  3. That sounds delicious, and I bet it is better with cream cheese!

    I LOVE the Kitcheaide pink line - too cute! And I think some of the profits go to breast cancer research!
