Key Lime Pie Dip
Key Lime Pie Dip is so simple to throw together and is the perfect mix of sweet and tart for a year round dessert.
Who really needs the pie part of key lime pie? How about an easy key lime pie dip with that same great taste?
No baking required! Just add ingredients and mix. If you like yours less tart, then you can easily tone it down by adjusting the amount of key lime juice used.
The hardest thing about this dip is trying to decide how to eat it. One graham cracker or two at a time? Vanilla wafer? I’ve even had a friend make a graham cracker sandwich out of this.
Of course there is always the option of just eating the key lime dip using a spoon too 🙂
Tips for making Key Lime Pie Dip
Do you need fresh key limes?
No, I use key lime juice that I buy in a bottle. You can certainly use fresh squeezed juice, but I think the bottle stuff works great and doesn’t take nearly as long as squeezing a bunch of small key limes.
Where do I find bottled key lime juice?
Not all grocery stores carry it, but I can find Nellie & Joe’s bottled key lime juice at my local Kroger and a couple of other places. In my store, it’s located in the fruit juice aisle. You can also buy it on Amazon.
Are key limes the same as regular limes?
No, key limes are smaller and have a slightly different flavor. Key limes are also more acidic. Read more about key limes.
