I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Normally we are snowboarding on Easter, but with the lack of snow this year, our local mountains are pretty much dried up. However, that did allow us to spend some time with my boyfriend’s family and friends and enjoy a wonderful brunch! I of course brought dessert, which always goes over well with our friends! I can’t tell you what I made, but they will be up on the blog soon! Hint, one of them had lemon!

I have been all about the lemons and frozen desserts lately! This Lemon Ice Cream Pie is on top of “must eat” list these days. If you love lemon, this light, mousse like ice cream is for you! The filling is made with a no-churn ice cream base that is super easy to mix. It is topped with fresh whipped cream and lemon zest. Oh and the crust, the crust is made of lemon Oreos!

Since summer is coming (p.s, I know that sounds so far off for you east coasters! Sorry!), I have been stocking up on no-bake desserts for summer time. Although it has been so incredibly hot here that it might as well be summer.

Most of my ice cream cakes are made with a 9” spring form pan, but they can be made in any freezer-friendly pie plate or cake pan. These are great desserts to have on hand during the summer months.

I haven’t always been a lemon fan, and it isn’t my go-to desserts, but as I am experimenting with more and more favors, it has become a part of my dessert rotation! The flavors are refreshing and a nice, unexpected surprise.

For the filling, it starts with cream cheese and lemon pudding mix, which you need to mix until completely smooth. Then add in some heavy cream and lemon zest. Once all the ingredients are well mixed, fold in a container of Cool Whip. I know not everyone loves Cool Whip, but the texture is perfect for these types of desserts, plus it freezes well.

I always like to top by pies with fresh whipped cream, but if you aren’t up for it, you can use another container of Cool Whip. The fresh whipped cream allows you add some flavor as well, like a lemon zest! I chose to zest the lemon on top of the pie instead of in the heavy cream, but you can do either.

This ice cream pie has a nice, thick, mousse like texture. The pie will freeze firm, so what I like to do is leave it on the counter for 15-20 minutes before cutting. I also suggest to use a sharp knife to cut through it. If it is too cold for an ice cream pie right now, save it for later!

  2. Line the bottom of a 9”spring form pan with tin foil. Press crust into the bottom of the pan and gently push it against the sides to form the crust. Refrigerate until the filling is ready.
  3. For the filling
  4. Beat cream cheese on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes until cream cheese is smooth and free of lumps. Scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  5. Add dry instant lemon pudding mix and heavy whipping cream. Beat on medium high speed for two minutes until pudding is well mixed into cream cheese.
  6. Add vanilla extract, lemon zest and Cool Whip. Beat on medium speed until well combined. Pour filling in prepared pie shell.

Notes

If you don’t have a springform pan, you can use a regular pie plate. “Cook time” is the minimum freezing time you need. Ideally 4 hours at a minimum would be best.

    Looks divine! I was wondering, where I’m at they only sell regular Oreos & golden Oreos. I bought a Porsche of the golden ones, could I add lemon extract to the crust? :

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Amy, I think that sounds wonderful but the Golden Oreos will work just fine if you can’t find the lemon ones. HAHA. I thought, “oh a Porsche of golden Oreos, sounds like my kinda Porsche!”

    Mmm. This looks delicious!! I could make this in a muffin tin to get a bunch of single servings, correct? It’s my son’s birthday on the 14 th and I’m just working on a dessert list.

    This looks delicious! Just double checking before I try this – So after you make filling & pour into crust, you freeze for 30 minutes, then add the Whipped Cream topping, then do you put back in freezer – for how long & do you put the whole pan in freezer or remove from pan before freezing? Thank you!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Janet! Yes, I freeze this for 30 minutes, and then add the whipped cream. THEN put is all back in the freezer for a couple more hours (in the pan). I remove the pan right before serving and I allow it to sit out on the counter for about 20 minutes before I slice into. It just makes it a little easier to slice. Enjoy and please come back and let you know how you like it!

    Haha, summer around the corner… It snowed here in Toronto a couple of days ago 🙁
    But I am all for ice cream pies. And where can I get my hands on lemon oreos?? Is it something you can only buy in the States? It seems like you guys are so well stocked when it comes to food in grocery stores. I am jealous 🙁

    Julie,
    This pie looks AMAZING! I love the lemon oreos in the crust. and in the middle of a hot and sticky summer, even thinking of turning the oven on makes me hot! And yes, in the North East it seems like summer will never, ever get here! But in typical Boston style, we’ll go from 30 degrees to 90 degrees with 100% humidity in about a week 🙂 Pinning this, and making it in the summer!

  6. Lindsay @ Life, Love and Sugar

    This sounds so delicious! I just finished drinking the new chick fil a lemonade slush thingy and this would probably be just as tasty!

  7. Tracy@www.bluridgevintage.com

    This looks so delish, I could probably eat the screen. I was not a huge fan of lemon either until a few years ago. I still shy away for the lemon meringue, but anything else lemon…..bring it on. This would be so refreshing for a warm summer day or picnic.

  8. allie @ Through Her Looking Glass

    What a gorgeous pie, been craving lemon!!! Perfect for the coming warm months…

  9. Mir

    This looks so light and summery. I hope summer’s not a long way off. I’m pretty much over any other season.
    Thanks for doing ice cream! It gives me hope…

    You should’ve come to New England to go snowboarding. We had enough snow to donate to the rest of the country and still have some left over to make a few snowmen! It’s almost all gone now though. Lemon Ice Cream Pie sounds like a wonderful spring dessert. Such a beautiful treat!

  11. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

    This pie looks so springy and refreshing! I love the tart sweetness of lemons and I’m especially loving the lemon Oreo crust! Brilliant!
