Strawberry Limeade Pie

I love a Strawberry Limeade, so I decided why not have all those awesome flavors in a pie? That is just what this recipe is and it is so delicious. A real easy no bake pie with fresh strawberries and a great lime flavor.The first time I made it my husband ate two slices and there sure wasn't any left on my plate either. The pie goes in the refrigerator and will be a great dessert for any event. This is one of my new creations that we love and sure hope you enjoy!

Ingredients
For The Crust
1-1/2 cups Graham Cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter, melted
For The Pie Filling
1-8 ounce block cream cheese, softened
1-14 ounce can condensed milk
1-8 ounce container whipped topping
1/3 cup lime juice
zest of 1 lime
2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped small
1/2 cup strawberry jam
whole strawberries for garnish
Directions
For The Crust
Place the Graham Cracker crumbs in a 9 inch pie plate.
Mix the sugar with the crumbs until blended well.
Melt the butter and pour it onto the crumb mixture. Mix together with a fork until all the crumbs are butter.Press the crumbs on to the bottom and sides of the pie plate to form the crust. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
For The Filling
In an electric mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese and condensed milk until creamy with no lumps. Add the lime juice and lime zest. Fold in the whipped topping and the chopped strawberries. Very carefully swirl in the strawberry jam. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.
Garnish with whole strawberries.
Enjoy!
