National Ice Cream Pie Day

On August 18th, National Ice Cream Pie Day is annually observed. This is August's second ice cream holiday, honoring a light frozen dessert available in a variety of delectable flavors.


First came the introduction of ice cream on pies. Making ice cream into pies is the natural next step. Our choices are endless with all the flavors that are available. In addition, when we factor in the types of crusts to make with ice cream pie, the idea is beyond delightful. For a fall treat, try graham cracker crusts and maple pecan ice cream. Or a vanilla wafer crust with peanut butter ice cream topped with bananas – yum! Your imagination is the only thing that holds you back.

The treat also makes an excellent substitute for those who can't decide on pie or cake for their birthday. Compromise and just have an ice cream pie. So many health benefits to enjoying ice cream pie over ice cream or just pie are over.

Ice cream pies are also a huge crowd pleaser. No matter what flavor you choose, they are a fast and delicious dessert to make and serve. It's sure to be a hit whether you make one for a birthday party, pot luck, or another family gathering.
