  • 5 cups low fat vanilla bean ice cream
  • 6 ounces frozen limeade concentrate
  • 2 fresh limes
  • 1 to 2 drops green food coloring (optional)
  • 1 graham cracker crust


  1. Set the ice cream out to soften; thaw limeade concentrate. Zest the peel of one lime and measure 2 teaspoons to add to the pie mixture. Juice the zested lime and measure 1 tablespoon.
  2. Combine the softened ice cream, limeade, lime juice and lime zest in a large bowl. Stir until well blended.
  3. Pour mixture into the graham cracker crust. Cover and freeze until firm.
  4. Cut pie into 10 servings. Garnish each slice with a fresh lime slice.

Helpful hints

  • For variety substitute cranberry, lemon or pineapple frozen concentrate for lime concentrate.
  • This dessert is not recommended for people with diabetes due to the high carbohydrate content. However you can make the following changes to reduce carbs to 26 grams per serving: make the filling and freeze in dessert cups and divide into 10 servings; omit the graham cracker crust; and use sugar-free ice cream.
