This Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie is fluffy, light, and refreshing. Plus, it’s no bake and easy to make gluten free!
To me, it’s just not summer until I’ve had my first Lemonade Shake Up.
Do you know the ones I’m talking about?
Lemonade Shake Up trucks typically dot the streets of summer festivals and fairs, their counters filled with cups of whole lemons and sugar waiting to be shaken into a frenzy of sweet, puckery lemonade. The shake up truck is always the first thing I look for when we go to a festival. Strolling the streets of Columbus on a hot summer day, sipping lemonade, and perusing the arts and craft booths–that, my friends, is the definition of summer.
But you know what would make those lemonade shake ups even better? Strawberries. Because everyone knows the only thing better than a glass of ice cold lemonade is a glass of ice cold strawberry lemonade.
My obsession with this summer flavor inspired this easy, no-bake, Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie. This recipe is based off of an old family favorite–Frozen Strawberry Fluff. I absolutely adore this light, creamy frozen treat, but I’ve always been a little wary about serving it to guests because it contains raw eggs. That’s why I was absolutely thrilled to discover Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs, a line of pasteurized whole eggs that are perfectly safe to consume in their raw state.
Do you realize what this means? It means licking the beaters, munching on raw cookie dough, and making the creamiest Caesar dressing around. It means not worrying about whether my penchant for stealing bites of uncooked dough will eventually land me in the ER. Now if only these eggs could also protect me from gaining a pants size. Hey, a girl can dream right?
Anyway, I knew I wanted to use Davidson’s eggs to make this old favorite, but I wanted to create a new recipe that would embody everything I love about summer. The original recipe is dressed up with chocolate, but I wanted something a little lighter, something refreshing and sweet with a teensy sour punch. I wanted a pie that reminded me of my favorite summer drink, and this Strawberry Lemonade Pie fits the bill perfectly.
Let’s chat for a minute about how this goes down. It starts with an easy graham cracker crust. Butter, grahams, sugar. You can’t go wrong.
To make the filling, you first whip up the egg whites. You’ll start the beaters on medium low speed. After the first minute, you’ll squeeze in the juice of two lemons. Then you’ll crank the beaters up to high and let them whip around for a good five minutes before slowly adding the sugar. After about eight minutes total, you’ll be left with a smooth, fluffy, white cloud that looks something like this:
From there you’ll add the mostly-thawed frozen strawberries and let the beaters break them up into bite sized chunks. I like using frozen strawberries rather than fresh because they seem to distribute throughout the pie a little better. Plus, it gives the mixture this glorious pink color. Trust me, you’ll want to lick the beaters. And the best part is, it’s totally safe to do it!
The fluff mixture gets spread out over the graham cracker crust then frozen for at least 6 hours or overnight. The next day, this pie will be ethereally light and creamy. Cool and refreshing, the sweet strawberries and zesty lemon flavors literally melt on your tongue. I can’t think of a better way to end a hot summer night.
My #SundaySupper friends have come up with nineteen more no-bake summer treats using Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs. If you’d like to pick up a carton for yourself, check them out at your grocery store, or learn more by connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
I hope you enjoy this cool, refreshing treat! Be sure to lick the beaters for me!
- 12 Tablespoons butter
- 24 whole graham crackers, crushed into tiny crumbs (or substitute 4 cups gluten free graham cracker crumbs)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Water, as needed
- 3 egg whites (I recommend Davidson's Safest Choice)
- Juice of 2 lemons (see note)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 8 ounces whipped topping, thawed
- 16 ounces frozen strawberries, mostly thawed
Since the size and potency of your lemons may vary, I suggest adding the juice of one lemon, taste testing at the end, and then adding the juice of a second lemon if you want it more puckery.
