We love the tart flavor of this ‘pie’ ice cream.  If you’re a fan of a classic key lime pie, you’ll really love this ice cream.

The graham cracker crumbs really turn it into a pie-like ice cream flavor.  Get out that ice cream maker and make some pie ice cream!

My ice cream maker of choice is the Cuisinart 1 1/2-quart Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream maker.  It works great, and I use it all summer long!

  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Refrigerate until well chilled (at least 8 hours, or overnight).
  2. Pour the mixture into the freezer can of an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Stir 1/3 cup of graham cracker crumbs into the finished ice cream.

      For a lime ice cream? I don’t think that would work out well! You’d be making Lemon Pie Ice Cream!
