Easy Key Lime Pie Recipe

I love a delicious dessert, even more so when I can have it ready in minutes.  This Easy Key Lime Pie recipe is so quick to make and amazingly good!  Mix up a few basic ingredients, pour them into a prepared pie crust, and chill for an hour.  I love this one to go along with a light dinner, a summer cookout or for something sweet on St. Patrick’s Day when you need a little green.


  • 1 8oz. block of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup of lime juice (use key lime juice if you can find it!)
  • 3 drops of green food coloring
  • 1 prepared graham cracker pie crust


  • Put the softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix with your hand mixer until creamy.  Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix until combined.
  • Add the lime juice and the food coloring.  Mix until combined.
  • Pour into the pie tin.  Refrigerate until set, about an hour.
  • Garnish with lime zest and lime slices if you’d like.  Yummy with some whipped cream on top, too!




  1. What size can of the condensed milk did you use?

  2. You can use the same recipe, but sub 3 tbsp of lemon juice for the lime and ads a tsp of vanilla to make an easy cheesecake. It pairs well with strawberry and raspberry topping.
