The first citrus crop to ripen on our farm are limes. The harvest starts in early Fall.
We grow both key limes and Bearss limes on our farm here in Newcastle, California. Both are tart, juicy and delicious and can be used in this recipe. The Key limes are small, with many seeds, and are a bit more tart than the Bearss limes, which are seedless, large and juicy. Both limes will turn more yellow as the season progresses.
This recipe is for a delicious, easy frozen key lime pie. It is so refreshing after a rich meal and it is so simple to prepare.
Easy Frozen Key Lime Pie
Use any recipe you like, or purchase a premade graham cracker crust:
Mix until blended:
1 Tablespoon grated lime rind
1/2 cup of lime juice
1 can of sweetened condensed milk.
1 cup of whipped cream (or for a lower fat version you can use Greek yogurt to replace some, or all of the cream)
Pour this into the pie shell and freeze until solid (at least 3 hours).
You can also top with more whipped cream and shredded lime rind to pretty this sweet treat up.
