Cool Lemonade Cheesecake

With the temperature soaring over 100 degrees every day, things that are cool are pretty appealing right now! Here's a quick, creamy, no-bake cheesecake that really takes the heat out of a summer day.
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered lemonade flavor drink mix (the kind with sugar already in it) 
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup  milk
1 (8 oz.) container thawed frozen whipped topping
1 graham cracker pie crust 

1)  Beat cream cheese, drink mix and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in milk. Whisk in whipped topping.
2) Spoon into crust.
3) Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.

Try with sliced strawberries or garnish with thin lemon slices and sprigs of mint...yum!

Hopefully, cooler temps and much needed rain are not far off, but meanwhile, I'm grateful for air conditioning in my home and car. Stay cool out there!
