Frozen Lemon Dessert with a graham cracker crust. We love this simple dessert.
This recipe is a family favorite. It comes from Kyle’s grandma. “Grandma G.B.” as we call her, she was a sweet grandma and so very with it! I love that we all think of her when we make this recipe. That’s the great thing about recipes, and food, they always bring us back together, some of the best memories.
You can find the recipe below, but here are all the ingredients to give you a visual of all you’ll need to make this dessert.
Once all assembled, you will freeze it up to 4 hours or overnight.
It’s so light and fresh, perfect for Spring and Summer.

A simple frozen lemon dessert with a graham cracker crust.

- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 2 eggs separated
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Combine the graham crackers, sugar and melted butter. Press into a lightly greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan and chill.
Beat the egg yolks until thick and add the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and zest, mix together until thick. Stir in half of the sweetened shredded coconut.
Whip the egg whites until foamy, then add the 4 tablespoons of sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the lemon mixture. Pour all of it over the graham crust.
