Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Cake

"Treat your friends to a sweet taste of summer any day of the year."

This is a Pampered Chef recipe that I have in a book of theirs titled: Delightful Desserts, from Easy to Elegant.

51 Reduced-fat vanilla wafers, divided
3 tablespoons of margarine, melted

2 cups of Fat-free, no sugar added vanilla ice cream, softened.
1 Can (6 ounces) frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed (3/4 cup)
1 container (12 ounces) frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed, divided.

Garnish: (Optional)
Lemon Slices
Pink Sugar crystals
Mint Leaves

1. Lightly spray a spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray. For crust, place 32 of the wafers in resealable plastic bag; crush into fine crumbs using a rolling pin. Place crumbs in a bowl. Add melted margarine; mix well. Press crumb mixture into bottom of pan. Line inside of pan with remaining wafers, slightly overlapping and rounded side of wafers next to collar.

2. For filling, combine ice cream and lemonade concentrate in a bowl. Beat until smooth with a steel whisk. Fold 3 cups of whipped topping into mixture. Pour mixture into crust. Freeze until firm. At least 3 hours.

3. When ready to serve, place dessert in refrigerator 15 minutes before slicing.

4. Run a utility knife around sides of dessert. Release the collar from pan. Garnish top with remaining whipped topping using the Accent Decorator. Add sugared lemon twist and mint if desired.

Yields 16 conservative slices or 8 hearty ones!

  • Do not substitute frozen yogurt for ice cream in this recipe.

  • While preparing Crust, place ice cream in refrigerator to soften, about 20 minutes

  • To make sugared lemon twist for garnishing, cut lemon into thin slices. Make one cut to center of each slice. Roll rind of lemon in pink crystals. Gently twist cut ends in opposite directions.
