"This was very simple and very refreshing. This is perfect for this warm weather. Thanks for recommening this Merlot."
"Light and refreshing! I used a reduced fat graham crust and light cool whip and still had a tasty treat!"
"I have been making this recipe for years and it is always requested; especially in the hot summer months. Instead of instant, I use 6 oz. of frozen lemonade concentrate, and sometimes even deepen the hue with yellow food coloring. I also, ocassionally, make individual pies in the mini graham cracker crusts. This way, those not used are available for future desserts and their presentation remains intact."
"What a simple and wonderful frozen pie - I thought that it might be too big for just the 2 of us but afraid I was wrong. Disappeared in a couple of days. Thanks for something easy, wonderful and light tasting."
"What a delicious pie! I give it 5 stars even though for some reason my husband and kids weren't overly fond of it. I've decided they must be crazy! That's the only possible reason for not loving this pie! Thanks for posting!"
"This recipe is so simply and delicious! I used Strawberry Lemonade mix instead of regular and it was amazing. Thanks for sharing, this recipe is a keeper!"
"OMG we loved this! Served to 4 people and everyone raved. My DH said I can make this anytime. Cool, creamy, and fantastic! Very easy to put together too. This will become a favorite I'm sure of it!"
"So easy and delicious! Like another reviewer, I used sugar free lemonade mix - 3 teaspoons; same amount of water; and light homemade vanilla ice cream with sugar free cool-whip. It was excellent!"
"so simple to put together and very refreshing. I did add a bit more lemonade powder for a little more tang. Use good quality ingredients and let them speak for themselves. In this case, less is more. Thanks for the great recipe."
"We really loved this! Very refreshing for the summertime. I can't wait to make it again! Thanks!"
"This is such a perfect summer dessert, and SO easy, too!! I made it as a strawberry lemonade pie, as my DH loves strawberries; I used 2 teaspoons Crystal Light (sugar-free) lemonade mix (same amount of water), light vanilla frozen yogurt (2 cups, which I think is a pint!), Cool Whip Free, and a Keebler reduced fat graham cracker crust (I couldn't find the larger size, but the regular one worked fine -- I just piled it on!). Then I sliced some strawberries into a bowl and crushed a few soft ones and sprinkled on a tiny bit of Crystal Light lemonade mix and stirred, then topped the pie slices with it. It was SO good!! And it reminded me a little of cheesecake, which I love. I recommend the strawberry topping if you like strawberries, as it added great color and flavor. The way I made it, I figure it as 4 Weight Watcher points (about 200 calories) per serving, for 8 servings. Thank you, Merlot!!!"
"O Yummmmm!! LIke another reviewer, I used frozen lemonade concentrate. Since we are having a heat wave (in Feb.) here in CA, I made this a few days ago, and it was perfectly light and delicious! Thanks for posting, Merlot! : )"
"What a wonderful recipe for these hot days we are having. Next time I will make 2 or 3 and freeze them to have handy. Thanks for sharing!"
"Merlot...this is the second time that I made your lemonade icecream pie, it is so light, yummy and refreshing, my Dh just loves lemons..we had some company over tonight, so I made two of them in the morning and stuck them in the freezer (I will keep one for DH and myself).... they just raved about it, I sent home the recipe with one person, this is such a delicious pie, I can't wait to serve this at my BBQ parties this summer, this is winner, thanks so much for posting Merlot :-)"
"So easy and so good! My husband and son scarfed this up!"

"I also used frozen lemonade concentrate--a 6 oz. can, softened. I also used slightly softened ice cream--2 cups. I did have too much filling for my crust, but I just froze the extra for a snack. Delicious, easy, and refreshing!"
"What a tasty surprise. I love it when super easy recipes taste super good. TY so much for posting. This will be a "do-again" and again, and again..........."
"Wonderful! Made this for my husband's birthday on this hot, humid summer day. Very refreshing, very easy--very nice!"
