This is a quick and easy recipe. My parents loved it when they first tried it. Variation: Substitute eight individual 1/2 cup molds for the 6 cup mold. Garnish with peach slices, blueberries and fresh mint leaves, if desired.

This recipe is wonderful! I added a pecan crust. The combination was great. I omitted the lemon zest and changed the lemonade concentrate to 1/2 cup. Got many requests for the recipe. Very refreshing! Read More

It was pretty tasty. Similar to cheesecake but no crust. It was very sweet though. Maybe a little too much for my taste. Still I might make it again. Read More

This was pretty good. I used regular cream cheese as that's what I had on hand. I tried a lemonade dessert years ago that I fell in love with and have not been able to find any recipe that matches it. But this was definately good and I will make it again. Read More

Like another reviewer I was looking for a lost recipie ( Grannie's "Lemon Delight"- grm crkr crust/frozen condensed milk/whipped semi-set lemon jello). This looks like a great up-dated version. I expect to come back and up-grade rating to 5 star after serving it to the purists in the family. Expect mods. Read More

Loved this! Make sure you get the cheese really smooth before you start adding the dissolved jello, and incorporate it slowly to keep the cheese from lumping. Read More

This was SO easy and tasty. Great for a hot summer night when someone else in the household ate all the ice cream and forgot to replace it. Grandkids loved it. used the rest of lemonade can to make lemonade with 1/3 less water. I grated the lemon rind but will probably leave it out next time and use as a garnish instead. The creamy texture with the chewy bits didn't work for me. May try similar concocotions with other frozenjuice blends and jellos. Read More
