Key lime pie is one of those desserts I hated as a child and cant get enough off as an adult! My absolutely favorite Key Lime pie can be found in Old Key West at Pepe’s. It’s piled high with creamy and tart filling, with a homemade crust and whipped cream. It’s just out-of-this-world good! The famous Kermit’s would come in second for me, especially the chocolate covered Key Lime pie on a stick! I know it sounds strange- chocolate and Key Lime? But I just love it!
While I don’t have plans to travel to the Keys anytime soon, today I had Key Lime pie on the brain after watching someone on Food Network make Key Lime pie bites. I just happened to have had a bottle of key lime juice in the fridge, and so I got to thinking about how I could whip up a quick Key Lime pie, without having to use the oven (I have ribs in there right now!), and that’s how this no bake Key Lime Pie came to be!
It’s oh-so-tart and tangy, and perfectly creamy from putting all of the ingredients in the blender. The tartness of the juice also hides the secret ingredient (see below). I bet the picky eaters in your life won’t be able to detect it! Of course it had to be paired with homemade whipped cream, just like at Pepe’s, and a have that traditional “graham cracker crust” like the real thing!
