Frozen Key Lime Pie
Nothing says South Florida like Key Lime Pie, but if you have ever been to Miami in the summer, you know that it is hot! The last thing I wanted to do was turn on the oven. Frozen Key Lime pie seemed like the perfect idea. It’s the perfect summer dessert. Nice and cool, melts in your mouth with luscious key lime flavor.
No Bake Key Lime Pie
Every time I’ve made no bake key lime pie, I’ve used sweetened condensed milk and cool whip. To make this dairy free version, I used So Delicious Vanilla Yogurt and So Delicious Coco Whip. The yogurt has a bit of tang, which I like coupled with the coco whip. It has a nice thick texture that I wasn’t expecting from coconut yogurt. Combined they are perfect!
Here are just a few notes to make your frozen key lime pie perfect. It’s a super a simple recipe.
Graham Crackers- I use gluten free and dairy free store bought grahams. Feel free to use your favorite brand or make your own.
Dairy Free Butter- Earth Balance is the brand I usually use. I find that the flavor is very similar to butter.
Lime Juice- 2 limes is about the amount of juice needed for this. You can use pre-bottled juice, but it tends to not be as strong.
Crust- These are heavy on the crust. If you aren’t a huge crust lover you can use less.
