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.
Key Lime Pie Recipe:
- Graham cracker crust (homemade or store bought
- 1 cup of sour cream
- (1) 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 2 limes
- 2 drops green food coloring (optional)
- 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 bowl mix together the lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, sour cream and food coloring using a spatula or wooden spoon. Pour filling into pie crust and refrigerate for at least three hours before serving.
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!
Thanks Kelsey! As usual, her recipes always looks so amazing.
Kelsey has plenty of other awesome ideas on her blog too. Here are a few of my favorite recent projects of hers:
Are you throwing a birthday party this summer? I love her Superhero Party Printables. What a fun way to make a birthday even more special!
She also recently completed her Rustic Woodland Nursery Nook. I love the mix of patterns and textures in this little corner of the nursery!
And if you’re looking for a sweet treat to beat the heat, this Drumstick Ice Cream Cake looks so amazing!
