How will you be celebrating the Fourth of July?

Serves 4-6

PREP: 20 minutes

COOK: none

COOL: 6 hours


  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons (7 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups (about 9 ounces) strawberries, hulled and cut into ¼-inch dice (about 1½ cups), plus whole strawberries, for garnish (optional)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • Graham Cracker Crust (page 25)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and lemon juice, then stir in the diced strawberries.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar on a low speed for 30 seconds. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the whipped cream to the bowl with the condensed milk mixture, and gently fold it in. The consistency will resemble a thick pudding. Pour the pie filling into the crust.
  4. Freeze for at least 6 hours or up to overnight. Garnish with strawberries, if desired.
  5. Remove from the freezer and serve immediately.
  6. Store, covered, in the freezer for up to 5 days.
