Memories usually involve food, drinks and parties. As the summer is quickly approaching I am already booking our weekends full of potential memorable events, so exciting! Some of my favorite memories involve Kool-Aid, the perfect summer drink. I remember sitting out on my parent's front lawn on beach towels with my BFF and watching the clouds and staying cool with some cold Kool-Aid. That Kool-Aid Man knew how to make a delicious cup of Kool-Aid.
Last weekend I went to a Demo at my local Walmart and found the new Kool-Aid Easy Mix Liquid and was sold. I immediately picked up one of each flavor available and knew that this would be the perfect mix to have on hand for our summer plans. These are better than the traditional powder mix because you can literally make one glass to a whole pitcher full. So easy and convenient because all you do is add water! Nice!
Finding these Kool-Aid Easy Mix made me start thinking of how I could use these traditional Kool-Aid flavors in something other than a glass of water. Boom! Who loves Icebox Pie? Oh dessert, you are my favorite to make and enjoy and this recipe not only tastes amazing on a hot summer day but is super easy to make too. The Kool-Aid Easy Mix adds the perfect fruity flavor to the pie too.

I cannot wait to serve these at our next summer party. They are the perfect single serve dessert and can be done well before the party starts. I love finding great desserts that can be prepared and ready for the party, these are perfect! I cannot wait to try all the flavors, tropical and grape would also be a very refreshing dessert to enjoy. Yummy!!
