Strawberries, Blossoms......& Chocolate!

I'm getting closer.......yippee!!!!

Since I have been stitching strawberries and seeing pink. I decided tonight I would make a frozen treat for the guys for dessert.  This recipe is a big hit at our home.  It is light, fluffy and refreshing. 

I hope you will try it, it takes about 5 minutes, yes, that's only 5 minutes to make!!!  Can't go wrong with that now can ya?  The recipe calls for chocolate syrup drizzled over the top, but sometimes I like to add a little bit of sliced strawberries on top, also.  Makes for a perfect finishing touch, not to mention taste.

    Strawberry Lemonade Pie

  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 chocolate crumb crust (9 inches)
  • Chocolate syrup, optional


  • In a large bowl, combine drink mix and water. Add ice cream; beat on low speed for 2 minutes or until blended. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon into crust.
  • Freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving. Serve with chocolate syrup if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

It's so good to feel close to your finish. Congrats to being almost there. Thanks for the recipe. Looks like it may have gotten eaten before you had a chance to take a pic-LOL. I'll be at the grocery store tomorrow so I'll get the ingredients and give it a try.

What a cute design. I don't think I've ever seen it before, but it's BB so it has to be fabulous right? You have been so busy blogging. Sorry I've missed a lot of your posts! Life should be better soon, as I've finally got a plan for my parents gift, and now I just need to get it done! Hope you had fun shopping on Friday. We missed SB, they close at 5:00. I thought they would be open until 6:00, and we got there at 5:30. Now another trip is in store sometime!
Your dessert sounds yummy. I'll have to try it sometime.
Hugs to you.
