You can whip this up in no time and there is plenty of room for creativity. The day before I plan to make this, I put the Cool Whip in the refrigerator to thaw and the condensed milk in to chill.
The ingredients are:
2/3 can Bacardi frozen drink mix – Pina colada, daiquiri, or margarita – (orange juice and other concentrates can work well too)
1 can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1 tub cool whip, thawed
1 pre-made gram cracker pie crust
In a mixing bowl combine the drink mix, condensed milk and Cool Whip until smooth.
It should be the consistency of a milkshake.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust, smooth out the top and freeze for at least six hours.
The beauty of this recipe is that it is a good foundation recipe. In past pies I have added fresh strawberries to the daiquiri, crushed pineapple to the pina colada or lime zest to the margarita. You may also substitute most any frozen concentrate. Pineapple-orange-banana juice will produce a delightful dreamcicle pie.
If you have the freezer space you can make all three in less than an hour! I know I’ll be taking a few to our 4th of July party. Do ask your host if they have room to keep them cold until serving.
** A note on the Bacardi mixes – if you wish to have the rum flavor of the original drinks you’ll want to use a tablespoon of rum extract as the real stuff won’t freeze.
