Sweet Summerberry Pie

3 cups berries of choice (strawberries are $1.25/lb here)
1 reduced fat graham cracker crust (Walmart brand $1.49)
1 14-oz can nonfat sweetened condensed milk ($0.89)
3 tbsp lemon juice (pennies)

Clean and dry berries, slice if needed into the graham cracker crust. Mix condensed milk and lemon juice until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Pour onto berries, top with a few berries for garnish. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Slice and enjoy.

8 servings at $0.47 each, or 6 servings at $0.62. Would be a smashing finale to the Fancy Pasta Carbonara, or a wonderful treat to take to a barbecue.


  1. Blech -- Wal-mart berries? June is coming with the best ones...

  2. LOL, spoken like a true farmer's market snob!

  3. Hint, hint....is that what you're bringing to my house?
