Lemon Icebox Pie really packs in the flavor for a simple southern staple. The filling has just four ingredients and bursts with the freshness of lemons while sitting atop a delicious graham cracker crust. My Grandma made this pie each time we visited my grandparents in Louisiana when I was a kid. It brings back memories of long summer days, playing outside with my cousins, and big family dinners.

Sweetened Condensed Milk

If you’d like to take a shortcut, you can purchase some organic condensed milk, but the canned version is processed and honestly, it’s really very easy to make homemade sweetened condensed milk at home. It’s just a matter of putting a few ingredients in a saucepan and letting them simmer for a while. You’ll find my Homemade Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe on page 275 of The Grain-Free Family Table.
