Delicious! I made it as written... except I added one softened 8 oz. cream cheese. I was then able to make 2 pies. One 9 inch w/ home made crust and one 9 inch store bought crust (that I happened to have on hand!) One note of caution for those using store bought crusts. Even though they say 9 inches I have found that these have a much smaller 'filling' capacity than if you make your own in a 9 inch pan. As a result you may end up with more filling than crust - and a much smaller pie/serving amount. I was even able to fit the entire 9 inch store bought crust into my 9 inch oven pan (and still had room in it). I also had a leftover lime (from some coronas over the weekend!) that I took and thinly sliced and used as a garnish over the pies. Hope this is helpful to everyone! Read More

I agree that this is much too sweet/strong this way. I've been making a similar pie for years but I add an 8 oz pkg of softened cream cheese. Works just as well with lemonade concentrate also. Read More

This was a super easy tasty dessert. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because it was a little too sweet for me. The texture of this frozen pie is very nice. It doesn't freeze up as hard as other recipes I have made before. It stays somewhat soft which I appreciated. I always toast graham cracker crusts in the oven at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes to make them taste fresher. I also made this recipe using frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate instead and mixed in a few frozen raspberries. That was also quite nice. Read More

We've made this pie in my family for years! A tip-- get the "two extra servings" size pie crust-- or double the filling and use three crusts. We've used limeade lemonade pink lemonade orange juice pina colada frozen concentrare mix... any citrus-y juice concentrate will work great! I like the orange juice pice best with a chocolate crust.

My Mom introduced us to this recipe in the 70's. She made it on every major holiday However she cut the limeade to 2/3 and also only used 2/3 of the whipped topping. She also added a few drops of green food coloring for show it gave the pie a pretty color. She would then take the remaining whipped topping and add it to the chilled pie before serving. Cutting back on the limeade it is not as strong very light but DELICIOUS! Read More

Make sure you don't make the mistake I did and put the whole can of concentrate in if you can't find a 6 oz container. I got the 12 oz and just assumed it was the right size. Boy was it waaaaay too tart. I redid it and then did a lemon one and both are outstanding! Read More

A great easy summertime dessert - light and good. Know that the lemonade would be just as good. Try a chocolate crumb crust sometime for a different taste. Read More

This has a good flavor - like Key Lime Pie but it was just a little too strong/sweet like the other review said. Definitely a summertime dessert. Read More

My family thought this was much too strongly flavored. We added another whipped topping on top and it was ok. If I did it again I would add 2 containers of whipped topping and make 2 pies would have a lime-chiffon type flavor then. Read More
