A green pie for St. Patrick’s Day

I have to make something green on St. Patrick’s day and if it’s for my family, it probably won’t be green vegetables.  I try to sneak those green veggies in, I really do but I just had to make this “green” pie.  It is also known as Idiot’s Pie.  My mother in law told me it’s called that because any idiot can make it, but for whatever name it goes by, it is good.

This is what you will need:  6 oz. of frozen limeade, 8 oz. frozen whipped topping, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 graham cracker crust and some green food coloring.  (Let the limeade and whipped topping thaw before making this.)

Fold the whipped topping, sweetened condensed milk and limeade together.

Add 4 or 5 drops of green food coloring to make it a pale green color.

Pour the filling into a graham cracker crust.  At this point the pie can be frozen (if you like it that way).  Or it can be refrigerated for a couple of hours and served.   I like the refrigerated version myself.  Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
