Orange Icebox Pie recipe

The hot temps outside have me craving a cool dessert~
I've been making a version of this icebox pie for several years now. 
In the past I've made the Lemonade or Lime versions which are super yummy.....but this time I decided to try it using frozen
orange juice concentrate and orange peel. It was super easy
to throw together with only a few ingredients!!

Orange Icebox Pie

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
6 oz. thawed Orange Juice concentrate 
1 container (8 oz.) Cool Whip
peel of 1 orange
1 graham cracker crust (9 in.)

In a large bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese until smooth.  Beat in thawed Orange Juice concentrate.  With a large spoon fold in orange peel and Cool Whip. Pour into the graham crust. Cover with the plastic lid (that comes with the graham crust) and place into the freezer or refrigerator for several hours or until set. 

OTHER VERSIONS: If you would like to try the Lemonade or Lime versions, just swap out the Orange Juice for 6 oz. of thawed Lemonade Concentrate or 6 oz. of thawed Limeade Concentrate. 

This is such an easy summer dessert. My kids love to eat a slice right out of the freezer. This is also something great to keep frozen for any last minute company or get togethers. I love the creamy fluffy texture and cool orange flavor!! I hope you enjoy it too!
