In a large mixing bowl, add one can of room temperature/warm sweetened condensed milk and one package of Sonic Cherry Limeade Gelatin and mix thoroughly. Mix well for approximately 3-5 minutes. Pro Tip: Warmer sweetened condensed milk will allow the gelatin to mix better and obtain a smoother consistency. You can warm the condensed milk by sticking the can in a bowl of hot water for 10-15 minutes. Pro Tip: The freshly created mix may have a bit of a gritty texture…DON’T WORRY, this will go away after the pie is allowed to set up in the refrigerator.
Once the cherry limeade and condensed milk are well mixed, add 1 tub of Cool Whip Whipped Topping (8 oz.) or other brand to the mixing bowl.
Fold the limeade and whipped topping together with a spatula until the mixture obtains a consistent even color. Pro Tip: Don’t overly mix or whip the pie filling. You will know it is mixed thoroughly when the “white” of the whipped topping is no longer visible.
Add the Sonic Cherry Limeade pie filling to a 9 in. graham cracker crust. This recipe uses a simple store bought crust, but you could easily make your own for this pie. Using your spatula, evenly spread the pie filling in the pie crust until it just about reaches the top. Pro Tip: This recipe has the potential to make slightly more pie filling than what the pie crust may hold, so, if you don’t want your filling overflowing the pie crust, be sure to pay careful attention when adding the filling to the crust.
Refrigerate your newly created Sonic Cherry Limeade Pie for 3-4 hours to let it set. Refrigerating overnight is preferred.
Once the pie is ready to serve, for the perfect presentation, top each piece of pie with a dollop of Cool Whip whipped topping, a maraschino cherry and a quarter slice of a thinly sliced piece of fresh lime!
