Newlywed Recipe Corner: "Angela's Delightfully Mallow Lemon Ice Box Pie"

 With the hot weather here in northern New York this week and the searing 100-plus temps I am hearing about from loved ones back home in Oklahoma, this week I am sharing one of my favorite warm weather, no-bake recipes. I have long been a fan of lemon ice box pie but the extraordinary amount of sugar and calories in just one slice sent me on a mission to create a light, easy and lower sugar version of this lemony delight I have enjoyed since childhood. I hope you will find this pie to be a cool treat on a summer day!

“Angela’s Delightfully Mallow Lemon Ice Box Pie”

1 1/2 cups skim milk

1 (4-serving size) package Jell-O sugar free instant lemon pudding

1 8 oz. tub sugar free Cool-Whip, thawed

3/4 cup miniature marshmallows

1 (8 oz.) reduced fat graham cracker pie crust

In large mixing bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Stir with wire whisk at least 1 minute or until pudding consistency. Add whipped topping to mixture, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add marshmallows and stir well. Pour mixture into pie crust. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 6 slices. Enjoy!

Marriage, Moving and Marvelous Mayhem

Well my fine friends, The Southern Fried Bride is now officially a bride! I packed up my pink and green suitcase, travel bags and my Vera Bradley in "Pink Cupcakes" and drove cross country with my new husband, The Southern Fried Mister, after our wedding to our honeymoon in New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast and then we made our way up the East Coast to our new home in New York. I am back in the blog world after a break for the wedding, honeymoon and move to New York. All the rehearsal, wedding and honeymoon details will be forthcoming. I am excited to be back in my little pink and green and always Southern fried corner of the internet sharing my life and inspirations with you. The winners from my 100 follower contest have been notified and will be announced later this week. I'm now looking forward to welcoming my 200th follower with a special surprise!
