Food Friday: Lemonade Icebox Pie

Everyone loves themselves some pie.  But it's August and it's hot and I'm not heating up the oven for pie.  On the other hand, icebox pies are cool and taste like summer.  The virtue of icebox pies is that they are cold and refreshing and they don't heat up the kitchen.  And, they are easy to make.  So this month, each Friday I will post an icebox pie recipe.  First up: lemonade pie. 
1 pre-made graham cracker crust 
1 6 oz can frozen lemonade, defrosted
1 small can sweetened condensed milk
1 small tub of Cool Whip (you could substitute 3 cups of homemade sweetened whipped cream)
finely grated zest from one lemon

In a large bowl, mix the frozen lemonade, the sweetened condensed milk, and the Cool Whip together until the ingredients are smooth.  Pour into the graham cracker crust.  Sprinkle the lemon zest on top.  Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours and then serve.  

This is the yummy taste of summer.
