Jeremy is a Key LimePie freak.It’s no secret that one of my greatest joys is making dishes that my honey absolutely loves. I’m sure I have, on many occasions, listed out his favorite things and this No Bake Key Lime Pie is at the top of the list.

He loves that tartness with a hint of sweet and silky smooth creamy filling with the buttery graham cracker crust. I mean, who wouldn’t?

I took the flavors of Key Lime Pie and turned them into these adorable individual frozen key lime pies, and guess what?! They tasteshockingly close to the original!

But, more refreshing being ice cold, YUM!The perfect summer dessert. Although, I have been known to make them year round but there is something special about enjoying them on a hot summer day!

When it comes to this delicious Key Lime Pie recipe, I just cannot get enough. Although I could totally eat them all, I believe everything in moderation, but this is truly the perfect dessert.

Not only is this an easy recipe but they come together quickly! With only 6 ingredients that you most likely have in your pantry you can put these together in no time.

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:

  1. Minimal simple ingredients help this recipe come together quickly and you should be able to find everything at your local grocery store.
  2. You can easily double this recipe although it already makes 18.
  3. They are single servings so you get to enjoy your own mini easy pie.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED (SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR THE FULL RECIPE CARD):

  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Unsalted butter
  • Fresh key lime juice,freshly squeezed (about a pound of key limes or good bottled key lime juice)
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Whipped topping,plus more for garnish
  • Cream cheese,softened

HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE KEY LIME PIE:

  1. Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter, and set aside.
  2. Cream the room temperature cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk to the large bowl and mix until smooth.
  4. Add the key lime juice and mix until smooth.
  5. Gently fold in the whipped topping until there are no streaks left.
  6. Take individual silicone cups (I use silicone cupcake liners, but paper cupcake liners work, too) and fill them with the key lime pie filling about ¾ of the way up.
  7. Top with the graham cracker crumbs. For best results, place them on a sheet tray and place them in the freezer for 4 hours or until set.
  8. Unmold pies carefully and serve them graham cracker side down. The easiest way to do this is to submerge the bottom half of the mold into warm water for a few seconds.
  9. Serve with whipped topping for garnish and key lime slices if desired, enjoy!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

WHAT CAN I USE IN PLACE OF KEY LIME JUICE?

If you can’t find fresh key limes, you can use regular limes in a pinch. Just make sure they are fresh limes.

Key lime bottled juice is also an option, click here: https://amzn.to/3KkEAKT for my favorite bottled key lime juice.

You can also use Persian limes if they are available in your area.

Hint: add some lime zest to the filling for an even more intense lime flavor.

DO I HAVE TO USE WHIPPED TOPPING?

No, you can make your own whipped cream in place of whipped topping or cool whip.

To do so, add 1 cup of heavy cream to a large bowl or into the bowl of a stand mixer with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

Whip until stiff peaks form, then continue with this delicious dip recipe as written.

WHAT CAN I USE IN PLACE OF GRAHAM CRACKER CRUMBS?

If you can’t find the store-bought graham cracker crumbs, you can put 1 sleeve of graham crackers into a food processor and process until crumbs form.

You can also use other cookies like Golden Oreos, Nilla Wafer, or Shortbread cookies. Gotta love a cookie crust!

HOW TO STORE:

Since these are frozen, they have to remain frozen, so storing in the freezer is essential for these pies. If you don’t plan on eating all of them right away, don’t unmold or decorate until you are ready to serve.

Store these in the silicone molds in the freezer tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, and they should keep for up to 3 months.

If you have already taken them out of the molds store them in a larger freezer container lined up and do not stack them.
