Guest Blog from And Puppy Makes 3: Lemonade Pie



Hi there! My name is Laura and I'm really excited to be guest blogging for Bentley. Like the car.! You can check out my blog, And Puppy Makes Three, to see Adrienne's guest blog appearance soon! Adrienne asked me to bake something because it's not her favorite thing to do. Ironically, the dessert I chose to blog about is a no-bake pie! Oops! BUT, this is perfect for people who, like Adrienne, aren't too keen on baking. 

This lemonade treat is the perfect end to a summer meal and a delicious way to cool down from the warm, sunny weather! What's even better? You won't have to spend loads of time in the kitchen to whip this up! It takes about fifteen minutes to put this pie together and then you can head back outside to the pool to spend time with your friends and family! 

You will need:


1 can evaporated milk
2 lemon instant pudding mixes
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
2 packages of softened cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
thawed frozen whipped topping


Step 1: Whisk the evaporated milk, pudding mix, and lemon zest together until well combined and mixture is thickened.
Step 2: Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and vanilla until they are fluffy.
Step 3: Add the lemonade concentrate. Beat until smooth. 


Step 4: Pour the milk mixture into the mixer bowl and beat until blended. I should have beat mine for longer. The cream cheese wasn't complete blended.
Step 5: Pour mixture into the graham cracker pie crust.


Step 6: Cover and let chill for at least 8 hours.


My dog, Jackson, wanted to help ;)

Final Step: Garnish with whipped topping and lemon zest and enjoy!
