Can you believe it’s August already???

We head off on vacation in 2 days to Chicago and North Carolina (Lake Norman & Ashville), and I’m SO ready. If you’re on Instagram and love travel pics as much as I do, be sure and follow along on our adventures!

Then, when we get back, SiSi and Big Tex will be heading back to school in less than 2 weeks, and hopefully {fingers crossed} I’ll find some time to catch up on all my work projects that have gotten put aside for the summer.

Side note: SiSi will be starting her last year of high school, and it’s bittersweet. On the one hand, I am so proud of her and all the hard work she’s done so far, AND I’m excited for her to head off to college next year, and start the next stage of her life, BUT… She’ll be heading off to college next year!!!!

If you’ve already gone through this, please send me comforting thoughts and words of wisdom. Thanks!!!

Back to this luscious lemonade pie recipe…

One thing I’m still ready for this summer, is making this easy frozen lemonade pie recipe. It’s one of my all-time favorite recipes from childhood-my mom’s pink lemonade pie- that I recreated to be gluten free AND a wee bit healthier.

My mom’s lemonade pie recipe was as easy as it gets…

Gingersnap Crust + Vanilla Ice Cream + 1 Can of Frozen Pink Lemonade

Thats’ it!

My gluten free lemonade pie recipe requires a few extra steps, but it’s still pretty darn easy, especially if you have an ice cream maker-but you can make it even if you don’t have one.

How to Make This “Deconstructed” Gluten Free Lemonade Pie Recipe

  1. Make lemon ice cream. My version uses almond milk + half-n-half for a lighter “ice cream”, but feel free to experiment with your own ingredients. Also, if you really want to save time (or you don’t have an ice cream maker), you can buy pre-made lemon ice cream OR vanilla ice cream that you mix with a little fresh lemon juice.
  2. Make your gluten free cookie crumble crust. For my easy “deconstructed” lemonade pie, all I did was combine crumbled Tates Gluten Free Ginger Cookies with pecans. That’s it!
  3. Assemble your (deconstructed) lemonade pies! Scoop ice cream into small serving bowls, top with gluten free ginger pecan cookie crumble, then add fresh raspberries on top. Yum!!!

Ingredients

Lemon Ice Cream

  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice , approximately 3 lemons
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie “Crust”

Lemonade Pie

  • Lemonade Ice Cream
  • 2 packages fresh raspberries
  • Cookie Crust

Instructions

Make the Ice Cream

  • Whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and eggs in a saucepan.  Whisk in almond milk and half-and-half, and cook the mixture over moderately high heat, whisking constantly, until it just comes to a simmer.  Strain the custard in to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until cold.  Next, whisk in the remaining almond milk and half-and-half and freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Make the Cookie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put pecans on baking sheet and toast for approximately 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grind cookies in a food processor until finely ground.  Remove to a mixing bowl. Next, process toasted pecans until finely ground, and add to cookie crumbs.  Stir together with a fork until well mixed.

Assemble the Lemonade Pie

  • Use small dessert bowls, custard cups, or ramekins to assemble the dessert.  Place 1/8 cup of cookie/nut mixture at the bottom of each bowl.  Top with one {or more!} scoops of lemon ice cream , another 1/8 cup of cookie/nut mixture and fresh raspberries.

Notes

SUPER DUPER TIME SAVING TIP!

Don’t have time to make the ice cream? By pre-made lemon ice cream or buy vanilla ice cream and blend it with lemon juice. It will be delicious too!
