Emerald Isle Dessert

1 pk graham crackers, crushed
5 tb melted margarine
2 tb powdered sugar
1 3 oz pkg lime jello dissolved in 1 c boiling water
1 13 oz can evaporated milk
1 8 oz bar cream cheese, softened
1 c sugar
1 ts vanilla
4 tb lime juice
green food coloring

Mix graham crackers, powdered sugar & margarine to make crust. Pat into 9x13 pan.
Put dissolved lime jello into fridge to begin to set.
Put milk into large bowl and put into freezer until ice crystals form. Whip until stiff. (Like whipped cream.)
Mix cream cheese with sugar, lime juice, vanilla. Add food coloring and jello. Mix well & add whipped milk.
Pour onto crust.
Set for several hours.

Yum!!! This is what we had for dessert on Loretta's Birthday. I think everyone loved it! You could do this with any flavor of Jello. I've been wanting to try it with half lime and half raspberry, swirled. I think it would taste fabulous!
