Strawberry Margarita Frozen Pie

When I made this pie, we took to my in-laws house for dessert.  My mother-in-law loved it.  She said that this was one of the best desserts that she has ever had and that she wanted me to make this for her next birthday.  Since her birthday is almost a year away, I thought this was a pretty big compliment.  
This delicious pie was certainly worthy of such praise. It is frozen and tastes like ice cream.  It has a great combination of strawberry, orange, and lime flavor with a salty pretzel crust.  It is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any hot summer day.  This was so good and really easy to make. I liked how you can make it earlier in the day and store it in the freezer until it is ready to serve for dessert.  I will definitely be making this again (It was so good, that I think everyone would be mad if I didn’t make it again!).

Strawberry Margarita Pie
(Recipe adapted from Kraft)
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 block cream cheese (8 ounces)
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups orange juice
1 tablespoon limeade concentrate
1 cup crushed strawberries
1 tub whipped topping (8 ounces)
1.  Mix the butter and pretzels together and press firmly into the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate.
2.  Beat the cream cheese and the sugar in a large bowl on medium speed until well blended.  Gradually add the orange juice and beat after each addition.  Then add the limeade concentrate and beat again until combined.  Stir in the crushed strawberries.  Gently add the whipped topping and stir with a wire whisk until blended.  Pour over the pretzel crust.
3.  Freeze for several hours or until firm.  Remove from the freezer and let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.

  32. Hi from Australia! Would love to make this but wondering what whipped topping is?? Is it cream in a can or something??

    • In the U.S. whipped topping is whipped cream sold in a container, a popular brand is Cool Whip. You can make your own whipped cream and use that. An 8 ounce container of whipped topping is about 3 cups of whipped cream. I hope you enjoy!
