Key Lime Pie Ice Cream- No ice cream machine needed!

This No-Churn Key Lime Pie Ice Cream is packed with citrus flavor with the added bonus of crushed graham cracker bits! 

Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

There are two things I love about this ice cream… First is that it is a no-churn recipe which means I can whip up a batch in a snap and second is that it tastes AMAZING. Citrus, especially lime, is a great choice when you are making any summer time treat.

No Churn Key Lime Ice cream

I find myself constantly thinking up ideas and ways to bring it to our table (see my Lime Mousse Bites, Lime Cheesecake, and Mint Limeade) but out of all of the recipes I have made this one is by far my favorite. It is easy and refreshing which is exactly what I need when the Texas temperatures slowly start to creep into triple digits.

Difference between limes and key limes:

I feel like we need to take a short detour and chat about the difference between lime varieties. This recipe calls specifically for Key Limes which aren’t the typical Persian variety  you find in the store.

They are quite a bit smaller and less tart which makes them perfect for desserts! While you can use regular lime juice in a pinch I highly recommend you search the store for the smaller variety. Sometimes you can even find just the juice next to the canned fruit aisle of the store.
