Oh the dreaded Florida heat has approached us. The humidity is a hair killer and a tantrum maker. We are huge fans of otter pops or frozen yogurt while we attempt outdoor playtime. With the heat I am always looking for simple recipes that don’t require too much cooking so I can escape the heat outside and in the kitchen! Today I bring you a simple no-bake pie that is perfect for hot summer days.
Another bonus about this recipe you can change up the citrus to change to flavor of the pie! I made this key lime pie for my in-laws who are visiting from Pittsburgh and they loved it….and so does Lily!
No-Bake Key Lime or Lemon Pie
1 Graham cracker piecrust
1 (8 oz) container of fat free Cool Whip
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
½ cup of key lime juice (or lemon juice), I purchased a bottle of Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice.
- In a bowl mix the key lime juice and the sweetened condensed milk.
- Fold in the Cool Whip.
- Pour mixture into the piecrust and refrigerate for 4 hours until it sets. Sometimes I save a little and pour it into a glass bowl to and chill. I crush up one graham cracker on top and eat it like that!
- Cut and serve when ready!
