Last night we had the missionaries over from church for dinner. I wanted to make something EASY for dinner and dessert. I LOVE what I ended up making so I thought I'd share. It is so easy too. Here's what you need
Some kind of concentrate juice ( I choose pink lemonade and it was AWESOME )
vanilla ice cream
butter ( Ironic after I just wrote about butter...)
a little sugar
Here's what you do. Take about half of a thing of vanilla ice cream and a can of juice from concentrate and put them in a bowl to melt together.
next take about half a thing of cool whip ( I wanted to save a little to go on top after it was done! ) and mix the cool whip, and the new ice cream mixture in a blender. I did this just so that there weren't any ice cream lumps. You could also do it in a standing mixer I am sure.
Next take your graham crackers ( I took two packages but mine was a little over kill ) and put them in a zip lock bag and beat them to death!
Take your rolling pin and roll out the chunks that did not break up. Next add about 1/4 cup of sugar. You can add more if you want it to be super sweet but mine was fine was just the 1/4 cup. Next spread the graham cracker mixture in a pie pan on a cake pan. Melt about 6 or so tablespoons of butter and pour on top of the graham mixture. Mix this well and smash it to the pan like a pie crust. Next pour the ice cream mixture on top and them stick it in the freezer. I took it out while we were eating dinner so that it would soften slightly and then I cut it up and added a little spoonful of cool whip on top! IT WAS SO YUMMY! I loved it and the sour pink lemon aid was PERFECT with the graham cracker. I have also done this with a strawberry daiquiri and it was amazing too! Try what you like but TRY IT! It's such a good dessert for an easy but yummy summer dish!
