Ever have one of those desserts where you just put anything together? Well, this was one of them. Luckily I had these ingredients already in my kitchen and I was trying to figure out what to do with all the surplus limes I had from a chicken taco night. My husband loves Key Lime Pie, and this is my easy version of it with things you can easily have or get. The good part is, you can make this yummy dessert with the kids, no baking required.
Ready Made Graham Cracker Pie Crust
3 Limes Juiced (you can add more for a stronger flavor)
1 (8 oz) Box Cream Cheese, softened to room temp
1 box Sugar Free Lime Jell-O Mix
1 Cup Water
¼ tsp Vanilla extract
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
Tub Cool Whip Topping
½ Cup white chocolate, melted (optional)
Boil water and add Lime Jell-O mix. Stir until fully dissolved and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl mix cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract and lime juice with a hand or standing mixer for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.
Combine cooled Jell-O mix and cream cheese mixture and continue to blend another minute until well mixed.
Pour into pie crust and let set in refrigerator 6-8 hours.
You might have some filling left over, just place in a bowl and chill for a snack later on.
Top with whip cream topping and serve cold. Refrigerate leftovers, if any.
Optional Instructions: Before starting, melt white chocolate and brush a thin layer over graham cracker crust. Place crust in refrigerator until ready to pour mixture in.
