Raspberry Ice Cream Pie On A Hot Summer Day Sure Sounds Good!

                     Don’t you just wanna big bite?!

Now here’s a simple dessert that looks very elegant. It’s great for a brunch, baby shower, etc. Adding the fruit is a great way to ensure it veers on the healthier side. You can substitute the ice cream with Greek yogurt (adding a sweetener to taste) if you make it in advance and you’re feeling ambitious!

    Yummy! I will be making this on Independence Day. I don't know why I've always found ice cream cakes intimidating: The idea that a slice of cake could melt before I was finished with it was always kinda upsetting to me. Facing my fear now!
