EASY KEY LIME CREAM PIE — This light and fluffy, no-bake key lime pie is perfect for spring and summer. And you won’t believe how easy it is to put together!
If you’re looking for the perfect dessert for spring or summer entertaining, look no further than this luscious Easy Key Lime Cream Pie.
Sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice and homemade whipped cream are combined and piled into a homemade graham cracker crust for an easy to make dessert that is sure to have everyone asking for seconds.
At least, everyone in my family was asking for seconds. And thirds…..
The smooth, creamy citrus filling is the perfect blend of sweet and tart. And garnished with freshly sliced limes and a sprinkling of zest, this pie makes for a beautiful presentation. Everyone will think you spent hours in the kitchen!
I do definitely recommend using key lime juice if possible. It’s got a more zippy lime flavor than regular lime juice and really makes this pie pop with citrus flavor.
Of course, regular lime juice will work in a pinch, but you might want to add some lime zest to the filling to really amplify that lime flavor.
I actually like to put this pie (and most of my no-bake pies) together in a tart pan with a removable bottom. It makes it so much easier to get out that first slice like a pro.
You could even use mini Mason jars to make up individual servings of key lime pie. No matter how you serve it up, this smooth and creamy key lime pie is sure to be a hit!
