Frozen Lemon Pie with Berries

We had guest over for dinner the other night. I wanted a light and refreshing dessert to complete our meal. I found this recipe in a cooking magazine and couldn't wait to make it. It was a hit!
Frozen Lemonade Pie
Graham Cracker Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
7 tablespoons butter, melted
Lemonade filling:
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
2 cups whipped cream
1 (6 fluid ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, keep frozen
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Berry topping
frozen raspberries
frozen blueberries
2 T sugar
1 T lemon juice
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar, and the melted butter. Press firmly on bottom and up sides of pie plate. Bake for 7 minutes and let cool completely.
In a medium bowl, add chilled sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream and fold gently. Add frozen lemonade and continue to gently fold. Stir in lemon zest. Do not let the mixture become soupy. Pour mixture into the pie crust and freeze overnight. Mix berries, sugar and lemon juice together.

I have made something very similar except it used cool whip instead of whipped cream. Whipped cream would definitely taste butter though the cool whip was soooooo easy. This is an awesome dessert and I love how sweet and tart it comes out.
