  • 1 quart vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 6-ounce can frozen lemonade concentrate
  • ¾ cup whipped topping

  2. With a mixer, blend together frozen yogurt and lemonade concentrate in a large bowl.
  3. Spread frozen yogurt mixture evenly over graham cracker crust.
  4. Freeze until firm, approximately four hours.

Teaching Tips

  • While you’re savoring your lemonade squares, say /l/–/l/–lickety-split lemonade together.
  • For some finger-licking fun, spread a thin layer of whipped topping on a flat pan or plate. Write the letter L in the topping with your finger. Lick fingers and repeat.
  • Drink some lemonade, or just read about it in Maisy Makes Lemonade.
