I can’t help but get really excited when I find just the right combination of flavors that make up a wonderful recipe and this lemon-lime freezer pie is no exception. It is a scrumptious combination of sweet and tart sitting proudly on top of a graham cracker crust just waiting for the perfect fork. My fork just happens to be the perfect one to enjoy this summertime treat.

The best part is it is a no-bake, easy peasy recipe that you can make look divine with just a little bit of “cheat”.  I take a little bit of green food coloring to get it to the perfect shade of green. I have even divided the filling and made it two different shades of green which is how I once served it at a cooking class at Fall Creek Vineyards.  Yes, that is how gorgeous you can make this lemon-lime freezer pie look on a plate!   

So, get ready to discover what you are going to dub as your favorite summertime pie!
