Love this! I used soft butter and just mashed it into the graham crackers. Then I substituted crushed pineapple for the lemonade only because I longed for an ice cream pineapple concoction I used to buy. None of my changes deter from the integrity of this recipe! Textures will vary depending how long you wait to taste! This is no-fail, and also offers many opportunities for experimentation. Good job, Mer!

Mer, this was fantastic! I wanted a stronger lemon taste, so I added much more lemonade. This, of course, made the ice cream thinner than it was supposed to be, but it still came out great. Next time I may try using a fresh lemon juice/sugar syrup instead of the lemonade and see what happens. Either way, I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a beautiful, ultra-refreshing dessert!
