Gluten Free Summer Pie


Summer Entertaining should be easy and full of freshness.  This recipe for a summer ice cream pie meets all of those criteria and tastes “out of the world” – we promise!

It’s been nicknamed “Better than Key Lime Pie” by our families – which in my circles is the highest of compliments. It’s also perfect for the Gluten-Free Guest and no one else will ever suspect it’s gluten-free.

The combination of the luscious lime ice cream, sweet strawberry jam and hint of ginger is the perfect refreshing summer party dessert.  You can make up a few and freeze them for when an impromptu party pops up this summer at your house.  Print the recipe below to keep and share!

Lime Strawberry Swirl Ice Cream Pie
Recipe type: Dessert
for the Gluten-Free Guest (no one else will ever suspect it’s gluten-free)
  • 1 ½ cups crushed gluten-free gingersnap cookie crumbs (you can substitute regular gingersnap cookie crumbs for a “non-gluten free” pie)
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1.5 quart container vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 6 oz. frozen limeade concentrate, softened
  • ¼ cup
  • Simple Strawberry Jam
  • 1 lime
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix 1 ¼ cups cookie crumbs and butter together until fully incorporated. Pour into a 10” pie dish (if you don’t have a 10” pie dish you can use a 9”) and spread evenly across bottom and up sides. If you have a smaller pie dish insert it on top of crumbs and press down to distribute crumbs evenly. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool thoroughly.
  2. Prepare Simple Strawberry Jam ahead of time and refrigerate – you can prepare days ahead.
  3. Allow ice cream to soften in a large mixing bowl along with limeade. Mix together until thoroughly incorporated. Pour into pie crust and distribute evenly. Drop tablespoons of jam on top of pie - using a knife pull jam through pie creating swirls. Sprinkle pie with reserved cookie crumbs. Garnish with a lime circle twist (cut a lime in half and cut a thin slice of lime - lie the lime circle on a cutting board and make a cut ¾ of the way across the diameter).  Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours.
