Sweet, tart and creamy, this Lemonade Icebox Pie only takes 10 minutes and 5 ingredients. It is a summer home run with whipped cream or strawberry sauce.
I originally got this pie recipe from my sister in law. She makes hers with limeade and graham cracker crust. I’ve switched things up a bit to use lemonade and a golden Oreo crust because YUM!
Summer is busy and full of fun. Food should be simple! This Lemonade Icebox Pie takes 10 minutes and 5 ingredients so it pretty much has the market cornered on simple.
Lemonade Icebox Pie
Icebox pies were named for the iceboxes (or refrigerators) they were kept cool in. This Lemonade Icebox Pie is a classic icebox pie. Simple ingredients for a no bake pie. Generally people do a baked crust from some sort of graham cracker or cookie. Here I’m using Golden Oreos.
How to Crush Oreos
To crush the Oreos I toss them into my food processor for a few seconds. This puppy is one of my kitchen work horses.
If you don’t have a food processor you put the cookies in a clean Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

Oh wow, this looks incredible! I’d have never thought to use golden Oreos in a crust, which is silly since I use the regular ones all the time. Thank you so much for sharing!
I was pretty excited! Last year I started making Oreo crusts and it has been tons of fun. You could probably use lemon oreos too but I felt like trying the golden ones for balance.
Love this, thank you for sharing
Of course, hon! I’m glad you are excited about it. I have one last piece horded in the freezer (I give away the bulk of the desserts I make because I make so many) and I’m saving it to share with my husband this weekend. It is like having secret treasure!
Oreo crusts are my favorite. this sounds so fresh and summery, thanks for sharing!
I could not agree more!
