Our Chocolate Key Lime Pie recipe was developed in collaboration with Tesco Food Love Stories.

This gorgeous creamy lime pie originates from the Florida Keys in America – where small sweet limes grew wild on the islands. Try an indulgent twist on a classic favourite with our chocolatey biscuit base.

'You must try this recipe. Everyone comments how nice it is. The best key lime pie you will ever taste'

Chocolate digestive biscuits


Cocoa powder


Butter, melted


finely grated zest and juice of 5 limes

Double cream


1 small square dark chocolate, grated

You will also need...

23cm (9in) loose-bottomed cake tin or fluted flan tin

Step 1 of 6

Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a fine crumb (or put in a sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin). Tip the crumbs into a bowl with the cocoa powder and mix well.

Step 2 of 6

Melt the butter in a pan (or microwave), then immediately pour it over the biscuit crumbs. Mix well until combined and the chocolate is melted.

Step 3 of 6

Spoon the biscuit mix into the base and up the sides of the tart tin, pressing down evenly to make the base. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Step 4 of 6

Meanwhile make the filling. In a large mixing bowl, use a balloon whisk to mix most of the lime zest (reserving a little to decorate) and juice with the condensed milk and double cream until you have a smooth, thick mixture.

Step 5 of 6

Remove the tart base from the fridge and spoon in the filling, spreading to the edges and smoothing over the top. Return to the fridge for 1-2 hours until set.

Step 6 of 6

When ready to serve, remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with the reserved lime zest and a little grated dark chocolate.
