Easy Key Lime Pie

Hey! I’m Kelsey from Poofy Cheeks where I share recipes, crafts and DIY projects all on a budget! Thank you to Jen for having me back to share another recipe with you!

I live in Florida and during the hot summer months the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven and stand in a hot kitchen baking so I turn to no-bake desserts. One of the most requested summer desserts in my house is Key Lime Pie and I have the easiest recipe to share with you! This pie can be made with a homemade or store bought graham cracker crust and the filling takes around five minutes to prepare. After you pour the filling into the crust you have to stick it in the refrigerator for a few hours to set and then serve! I personally like making my own graham cracker crust which adds on a little extra time but is still SUPER easy.

This pie is SO good it should be a crime that it is also SO easy! I made one over Memorial Day weekend and every last bit was gone by the end of the night. My husband made mention as I was whipping up the filling that the smell alone makes his mouth water.

If you want to make your own graham cracker crust you can find my homemade graham cracker pie crust recipe over at Poofy Cheeks – all you need is graham crackers, sugar and butter!

  1. Yes, The directions are not clear. Please be more specific. Add the juices to the sour cream and condensed milk? Whip for five minutes with electric mixer? Add whipped cream? Etc. Would love more exact directions. Thank you

    • Hi Andrea! I wrote the directions late and they should be…

      -Cut two limes in half and squeeze the juice from them – add more lime juice to make it 1/2 cup juice total.
      -In a medium bowl mix together the lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, sour cream and food coloring using a spatula or wooden spoon. Once mixed pour filling into pie crust and refrigerate for at least three hours before serving.

      As for whipped cream – we like to top ours with it if we have some on hand but it is just as good without ;)

    Looks so good!!! I’m thinking the directions could be a little more explanatory….guessing that after you squeeze the lime juice, the other ingredients are combined to make the filling? Anxious to make so just want to know if there’s more to it than that. Thanks!!
