Frozen Strawberry Pie is a perfect dessert to enjoy on a hot summer evening. Lightly sweetened strawberries smothered in whipped topping and encased in a buttery graham cracker crust. Yum!
When I was a girl, I remember my mom brought home a frozen pie from the grocery store. And we thought Heaven had come down to Earth! I think it might have been a Key Lime Pie or a Lemon Pie (with those pretty piped rings of whipped topping along the outer edge) or Frozen Strawberry Pie. They were wonderful. Sweet, and creamy, and ice cold.
Wanting to see if I could recreate a similar dessert, I tried my hand at frozen pies one summer. I made Frozen Peanut Butter Pie,Key Lime Pie, and this one with strawberries. They were all so easy to make and very satisfying after a hot summer day.
Ingredients Needed to Make Frozen Strawberry Pie
Graham Cracker Pie Crust:
sweetened condensed milk
lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
frozen whipped topping
Steps to Make this Recipe
Making the Crust:
Place a sleeve of graham crackers in a quart freezer bag. Squeeze out the extra air inside and then zip it up. Crush the crackers with a rolling pin. Roll back and forth, over and over until you have fine crumbs. One sleeve of graham crackers should equal 1 1/4 cups of crumbs.
In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter with a fork until combined. Press into a 9″ pie plate and refrigerate.
To Make the Filling:
In a large bowl, mash strawberries. I used fresh strawberries for this recipe, but frozen would work just as well. You could also use a food processor to puree them.
Stir sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice into the mashed strawberries.
Using a rubber spatula, fold in whipped topping until fully combined.
Spoon filling into prepared graham cracker pie crust. Cover with tin foil.
Freeze pie for 6 hours or until firm. This recipe serves 8 people.
