With summer around the corner, I want to share with you this unbelievably easy and wonderful Cream Pie–using ice cream and pudding! As you kmow, I love making homemade treats for my family, but I have to admit, during the hot summer months I want to spend as little time as possible in my kitchen! Do you know what I mean?! That is why I love this pie–it comes together so quickly and tastes so great, that it has become a favorite of ours! It really is the perfect summer dessert! and I especially love that the possiblities are endless! Depending on the ice cream and pudding you choose, you can make any type of pie your little heart desires…coconut cream topped with toasted coconut, chocolate cream with chocolate shavings, lemon cream with raspberries, banana cream with fresh banana slices, vanilla bean garnished with strawberries and the list goes on! If you keep these simple ingredients on hand (ice cream, COOL WHIP whipped topping, boxed pudding and either graham cracker crusts or frozen pie shells) you can make a stunning dessert in minutes just chilling in your fridge for a refreshing summer treat! This pie is so easy to make that you will find yourself making an extra one to share with a neighbor or friend. If you do, be prepared to share the recipe, it is always a big hit! I usually make two pies from one container of ice cream. Yum!
Cream Pie–any way you like it!

1 small package instant pudding
1 cup milk
1 pint icecream, softened
1 pie shell (ready made or homemade graham or pastry, cooked and cooled)
Bead pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes. Blend softened ice cream into pudding. Pour into a prepared shell that has been baked and cooled. I usually use a graham cracker one because I prefer it over pastry, but either one will work! Chill for at least 2 hours in fridge–I have chilled is quickly in the freezer for 30 minutes-1 hour with great results! You can vary the flavors of pudding and ice cream to get different pies. Always top with a dollop of COOL WHIP and the garnishes you choose. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
*Coconut Cream Pie: coconut pudding, vanilla ice cream, and toasted coconut
*Chocolate Cream Pie: chocolate pudding, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate shavings
*Banana Cream Pie: banana pudding, vanilla ice cream, and fresh banana slices with drizzled caramal topping
*Lemon Cream Pie: lemon pudding, vanilla ice cream, and fresh berries
The sky is the limit! Really with all the ice cream and pudding flavors, you could really get creative! I would love to hear what combinations are your favorite!
What you add makes it. #coolwhipmoms
