Easy 4-Ingredient Creamy Key Lime Pie Recipe Is So Refreshing

Sweet, creamy and tart, nothing beats a slice of key lime pie! It's said that this famous pie recipe originated in Key West, Florida, in the 19th century. Sweetened condensed milk became the main ingredient because fresh milk and refrigeration were scarce in the Florida Keys in the early 1900s.

This easy key lime pie recipe has just three ingredients in the filling: sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese and lime juice. Use key lime juice if you can find it. If not, regular fresh lime juice works, too. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 4 hours to chill 
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes plus 4 hours to chill 
Servings: Makes 1 pie

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice or lime juice
  • 1 graham cracker crust
  • lime slices or lime zest, for garnish (optional)
  • whipped cream, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Beat the cream cheese until smooth with an electric mixer.
  2. Add the sweetened condensed milk and lime juice and mix thoroughly. 
  3. Pour into the graham cracker crust. Refrigerate the pie at least 4 hours. 
  4. Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices.

Key lime pie is my daughter's favorite. This recipe is so easy!! You could add a little green food coloring to make it even greener for St. Patrick's Day.

I was told this was by far better than the store. I added a little lime zest and a little green food coloring of St Paddy's day
