The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it all pretty quickly. It will need some time to set and freeze for about 24 hours so keep that in mind in terms of when you can serve your key lime ice cream pie.

This simple recipe is a gluten free filling so if you use a gluten free pie crust or make your own that is gluten free, this key lime ice cream pie can be allergy friendly as well!

The recipe will make about 8-10 servings based on how you cut it. Larger or smaller slices will result in less or more servings so just cut it how you need to or just plan ahead and make two!

Once frozen it can actually hang out in the freezer for a bit without going bad so you’ll have a treat on hand if you need one.

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 mixerspatula, 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.

You can’t go wrong with some good sharp knives and a cutting board. They will always come in handy in the kitchen for recipes of any kind, even desserts!

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.
