An ice cream pie was one of the most requested desserts when my children were growing up. That’s probably because they are fun to make as well as fun to eat. There are infinite flavor combinations and each pie ends up being a work of art. You can even make them dairy-free and/or gluten-free!

If you have never made an ice cream pie before, you are certainly in for a treat! Because they are so easy to make they are perfect for delicious frozen treats on a hot summer day. But don’t stop there! Ice cream pies are also a refreshing dessert for parties and other celebrations.
First of all, allow your favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt to soften just a little, then spooned it into a graham cracker pie crust (make a dome shape). Don’t worry about how pretty it is at this stage because, in the end, the pie will be completely covered with whipped topping.
NOTE: Be sure to use gluten-free graham cracker pie crust when making gluten-free ice cream pies.
Next, top the frozen ice cream or yogurt with a small tub of whipped topping and garnish. For my gluten-free frozen yogurt pie, I used a few chocolate curls and candy red heart sprinkles (perfect for Valentine’s Day)!
Next, the pie goes into the freezer until it’s time to serve.
It really doesn’t matter what flavor or type of ice cream or frozen yogurt you use. These pies are really fun to make and people will think that you spent a lot of time on them. (Actually, they only take a few minutes to create.) Don’t be surprised if everyone thinks that you bought them because they really do look fancy!
**Gluten-free Option: simply use 2 cups crushed gluten-free graham crackers plus 1 tablespoon melted butter and 2 tablespoons sugar. Press mixture into a pie pan. Fill graham cracker crust with gluten-free ice cream, gluten-free whipped topping, and your favorite gluten free toppings.
