Ice Box Pie

This one came from my great grandmother’s recipe box. It looks like it might have originally been found in the Mobile Register. It appeals to me tonight just because it is exceptionally warm here for us. Well, not us us, but for the area. I like that it explains how to make the evaporated milk whip…something I have found challenging. I also like that it is all pantry type of stuff…well if you can whip a graham cracker crust up in your sleep or have one on hand. (Microwave some margarine. Add to crushed graham crackers or cookies. Press into pie plate. All done!

Ice Box Pie

Juice of three lemons
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 small can evaporated milk
1 small can sweetened condensed milk
Graham cracker crust

Chill the evaporated milk in an ice tray until crystals begin to form around the edges. This makes it whip easily. Whip the milk, then fold in pineapple, condensed milk and lemon juice. Pour into pie plate lined with graham cracker crust. Chill in the refrigerator.

There you go. Easy peasy yummy dessert.


  1. This looks yummy! I’ve also made it with a can of frozen lemonade or limeade…

    Hi, what is a small size can of condensed milk? I’ve only seen the 14 ounce size?
    Can’t wait to try this. My husband will love it!

  3. I just go with the regular sized cans of all three and don’t fret it. I think the small size is about 1/2 the size we get now.
