Ingredients You’ll Need

How To Make Frozen Lemonade Pie
- Assemble the pie filling: Add the sweetened condensed milk and whipped topping into a bowl and mix until fully combined. Add in the thawed pink lemonade concentrate and stir until incorporated.
- Fill the pie crust: Pour the pie filling into the pie crust and spread evenly.
- Set the lemonade pie: Store in the fridge for 4 hours, or in the freezer overnight. Slice and serve cold.
- When mixing the cream and whipped topping, be sure you fold it in gently to make sure the whipped topping stays light and airy.
- If you’re making a homemade crust, make sure it cools completely before filling the pie crust to prevent the filling from melting and losing its light texture.
- While you can serve this pie refrigerated, it sets best when it’s fully frozen overnight. This will help keep the pie filling stable and make it easier to eat.
- If serving outside, store the remaining leftovers in the fridge or freezer so it does not defrost in the heat.
- If you’d like to add a more vibrant pink color to the pie, stir in a few drops of red food coloring.
- Taste test your filling before adding it to the pie as some lemonade concentrates can be very sweet.
- Add more fruity flavor by folding in your favorite fruit. Sliced bananas, crushed pineapples, or your favorite berries make a great addition to this pie.
- Feel free to use regular lemonade concentrate if you can’t find pink lemonade.
- Make a homemade oreo crust for the bottom using golden or birthday cake Oreos for a fun party flavor.
- Try making a homemade pretzel crust for a salty bite that pairs well with lemonade.
- Use an 8×8-inch baking pan to make this pie into fun lemonade squares.
- Stir in 4 ounces of room temperature cream cheese to the sweetened condensed milk and whipped topping for a filling that is tangy and thick.
- Sprinkle in some fresh lemon zest for more fresh lemon flavor.

Storing & Freezing
Storing: Refrigerated lemonade pie will last for 4-5 days in the fridge covered with foil or plastic wrap.
Freezing: If storing in the freezer long term, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, then foil to keep it fresh. Freezes well for 3-4 months. Let thaw on the counter for 5-10 minutes or until pie can easily be sliced and served.
Can I use other juice concentrates?
Sure! Although we have not tested these personally, you can use orange concentrate or limeade using the same method.
What else can I use for the filling?
There are many different ways to make a lemonade pie filling. You can use cream cheese or even vanilla ice cream with lemonade concentrate.
Can I use homemade lemonade instead of concentrate?
Absolutely! Be sure to taste test the filling to make sure it is sweet enough before adding it to the pie crust as concentrates are much sweeter than homemade lemonade.
