I know.

I KNOW that basil reminds you of lasagna. Trust me on this one: Blueberry Basil Lemonade is good! Add some Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk and how could you go wrong?

Surely you have had frozen lemonade pie, right? This is just a fancy version all dressed up for a night on the town…or out in your back yard playing corn hole with friends. Whatever.

Blueberry Basil Lemonade Recipe

Basil is about the only thing that I can grow. Well, besides babies. I have 2 babies that I’m very proud of growing. But if we’re talking about green things with leaves and other stuff basil is about my limit. Since I have a short attention span I often forget about plants needing water and all that jazz so things go downhill very quickly, but basil is resilient. I really wanted to get into my basil crop early this year so I was anxiously awaiting those first tiny leaves. This is what I did with them.

If you are scared {or repulsed} by this idea then you can substitute mint for the basil or just omit it altogether. I won’t track you down. Promise.

Frozen lemonade pies with a hint of blueberry and basil

Ingredients:

8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 Cup frozen lemonade concentrate
1/2 Cup blueberries
2 fresh basil leaves (optional)
Mini pie crusts (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl combine the Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk. Then add the lemonade concentrate.
  2. Add the blueberries (halve them if small children will be enjoying this dessert). Finely chop the basil and fold into the mixture.
  3. Spoon the mixture into 12 mini pie crusts or small containers. Freeze for 5 hours or overnight.

Notes:

  • Don't be afraid of the basil! It is a nice subtle contrast to the other flavors in this dessert. Of course you can substitute with mint, or omit it altogether.
  • Most lemonade concentrates will come in 2 Cup containers. Since you only need 1 cup for the pies mix up the rest with some water, ice, blueberries, and basil for a delicious lemonade while you're waiting for your dessert to freeze!
