Create a whole rainbow of frosty pies!

It’s easy — a no-cook, one bowl recipe, and oven ready pie shells from Pet-Ritz.

Use your favorite fruit juice and create a light sherbet-like filling made with rich and creamy PET Non-Dairy Whip Topping, frozen delightfully cold in a Pet-Ritz light and flaky pie crust shell.

Convenient, but so much like homemade. Prepare in advance and enjoy your patio party, too. Make one? Easy enough to make a whole delicious rainbow.
