Kitchen essentials for tasty no bake recipes:
When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.
Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
I like these casserole dishes from Pyrex which are great for no bake recipes and for all your favorite dinners, brownies, cakes, and more.
How to make your own key lime pie ice cream dessert:
Place heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. This can also be done with a hand blender with whisk attachment but will take much longer. Blend for 4 minutes on low speed and adjust speed going up to 6 as it thickens. Once it resembles whipped topping then it’s ready.
Fold in the can of sweetened condensed milk. Fold in key lime juice. Pour into the pie crust.
Top the ice cream pie with sliced limes. Wash the lid of the pie crust and flip and place on the pie. Press down the metal edging. Freeze pie overnight.
Once frozen overnight, cut with a warm knife and serve.
