Rich Creamy No-Bake Key Lime Pie

This is not an authentic recipe for key lime pie but I think it is even better. Creamy, smooth, not overly sweet, quick & easy....just perfect. Makes two pies if using 9-inch store-bought graham cracker crusts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With an electric mixer, blend cream cheese, lime juice, and condensed milk until smooth. Add zest and mix just until combined. Pour filling into prepared crust. Chill pie at least 6 hours and up to 1 day. Serve topped with sweetened whipped cream or crème fraîche.

I made the recipe for 1 pie. It was great. It was my first time doing a key lime pie. Even though I used regular lime. My son helped me to mix the ingredients. It's so yummy. I made a graham crumb crust. Thanks Swissms :) Made for PRMR tag game

I love a recipe that makes 2; 1 for me and 1 to share! I really enjoy these 'type' of pies, creamy and delicious, without too much work. That said, after the ingredients were mixed together, I tasted, and added approx. 1/4 c. of powdered sugar. It was still very tart, and next time I will use perhaps 1/2 cup of the sugar. It is hard to beat this recipe for ease of preparation; I'll definitely be making these again! :-) Thanks for sharing, swissms!

Way too tart for me. I would recommend some sugar like the others said. I wish I had. I wonder what it would taste like if you substituted 1/2 of the cream cheese with freshly whipped cream...
