This looks delicious, Amy! I make a summertime pie with lemonade concentrate, Cool Whip, and sweetened condensed milk. We love it, but it’s fairly heavy. This sounds light as a feather and very refreshing!
Refreshing!! What a terrific dessert on a hot summer day! Thanks for the great recipe!! Can’t wait to try it!!
