Notes

  1. The instructions below are for a deeper pie made in a springform pan with real whipped cream topping and a DIY graham cracker crust.  To same time, you can use a store-bought graham cracker pie crust and Cool Whip.  A store-bought pie crust is slightly smaller, so you will want to decrease the amount of ice cream to 2 cups each and the margarita mix to 9 oz.
  2. Computed calories are for 10 slices and no tequila.
  3. You can reduce the calories by using low-fat ice cream and cool whip.
