Frozen Cherry Lemonade Pie + No Bake Features

Frozen Cherry Lemonade Pie (4)
This frozen treat is a fun twist on pink lemonade, using lemon and cherry flavors. It comes together very quickly and requires only 4 ingredients. Layering different combinations of these ingredients keeps the pie from going hum drum and expected. Plus the colors are so cute for summer!

This unique flavor combo was requested by my BF for our 1 month anniversary. In return, he got me a personalized necklace with our names and birthstones. So sweet! Unfortunately, I irreparably stained his Formica countertop with maraschino cherry juice! So be sure to take precautions when preparing the pie.

Since I’m living at home, I’m no longer making thermostat decisions. My stepdad basically loses it if I use the stove. So I’m trying out more no bake recipes. No bake desserts are excellent options for summer. Forgoing the oven keeps your house cooler and your A/C bill lower. Plus they require less hands-on time so that you can enjoy the nice weather.
