Palmolive Soft Touch Dish Soap: Creamsicle Pie Recipe, Review

sponsored post from Palmolive

Palmolive has invited me to be inspired by their newest dish liquid line, Soft Touch, when creating my next meal. With more caring ingredients for your hands, the new line comes in Coconut Butter, Aloe and Vitamin E, and their colors (green, orange and pink) are perfect for a Summertime meal!

Palmolive offered me a gift card to purchase the ingredients needed to make a dish and then clean up with Palmolive Soft Touch they also sent along! My challenge was to make a dish that features the colors of the latest line. So which color inspired dish would you make from these soaps?

Some color-inspired dishes for these Palmolive Soft Touch dish soaps may be:

Pink (Vitamin E scent):
Shrimp scampi
Strawberry desserts
Beet and goat cheese risotto

Orange (Coconut Butter scent):
Apricot cobbler or tart
Mandarin or buffalo chicken
Twice-baked sweet potatoes

Green (Aloe Scent):
Fresh fig and arugula salad
Broccoli soup
Cilantro lime rice
Key lime pie

Well since we're now in a smaller place, heating up my stove/oven makes it really hot in here, so naturally I went with a no bake chilled summery dessert. I opted for the orange inspired dishes of the Palmolive Soft Touch in Coconut Butter scent. Clean up was easy, my dishes came out sparkling clean and the soap was easy on my hands leaving them soft. Even my kids loved the scent of the coconut.
This creamsicle pie came out wonderful! It's a little soft set, sort of like a thick pudding pie. If you like those frozen creamsicle pops, you'll love this creamy dreamy pie!

Creamsicle Pie
from Serious Eats

1 recipe graham cracker crust (see below)
12 ounces evaporated milk
2 packages instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 ounces each)
Zest of 1 orange
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

1 cup heavy cream, chilled
2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar

Whisk together evaporated milk, pudding mix, and zest in a bowl for 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened.

Beat cream cheese and vanilla at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add orange juice concentrate, beating until smooth; add evaporated milk mixture, and beat until blended.

Pour into crust. Cover and chill 8 hours or until firm. (Please note that I used a tart pan giving me extra filling, I set aside to have as pudding style later on)

Make whipped cream:
Combine cream and confectioner's sugar in a bowl and whip with a whisk until it holds soft peaks. Dollop or pipe each slice with whipped cream.

No Bake Graham Cracker Crust
1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs (gluten free recipe here)
3 TBL granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until well blended . Press mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate or tart pan. Chill for about 1 hour. Assemble pie.
my easy gluten free no bake graham cracker crust
