This is our version of the classic American Key Lime Pie, which traditionally uses limes from the Florida Keys and has a crumbly biscuit base. Don’t worry though – you can use any kind of lime for our easy Key Lime Pie recipe! The sweetness of Carnation Condensed Milk balanced with zingy limes is sure to tempt the taste buds.

Step 3 of 4

Key Lime Pie

Using a balloon whisk, mix the condensed milk and cream until combined, then add the lime juice and zest (it will thicken!). Pour onto your biscuit base and chill for at least 1-2 hours.

This Key Lime Pie recipe can also be made with lemons – replace the five limes with four lemons for a lovely fresh twist. Or, try gingernut biscuits in the base they go beautifully with the tangy lime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to make Mmm am on the fence with this one. It's really easy to make and it's smooth and creamy but the condensed milk and cream flavour get lost with the lime. Next time I think I will make it the same as the lemon cheesecake but add lime instead of lemons see if that's better. That been said kids and hubby love it x
