This is such an easy, light, pretty and delicious pie, using just a few ingredients. A good pie to celebrate with on St. Patrick's Day, as well as in the spring, Easter and Christmas. This is a light but rich pie. I like the cool mint flavor and a pretty green color. Since I am part Irish, St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite times -with all the good dishes and celebrations. Happy St. Paddy's Day. I hope that you find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

You are going to feel like the luckiest person in the world when you take your first bite of this no-bake pie. Light and fluffy with a hint of mint flavor, it's delicious. Each bite just melts in your mouth. We tried it with a chocolate pie crust and the flavor combination reminds us of Junior Mints! It's a very festive dessert.
