Key Lime Pie Ice Cream – easy homemade ice cream recipe made with key lime juice, zest, and chopped graham crackers. Everything you love about key lime pie in an ice cream!
Let’s talk about pie.
Because I cannot stop thinking about pie. Blueberry, strawberry, peach, cherry, I want ALL THE PIES.
It’s weird because I’m usually pretty meh about pie but right now, it’s seriously all I can think about. And the only reason I haven’t made one is because I’m pretty sure that I’d eat the entire thing in one go.
So I made pie ice cream! Key Lime Pie Ice Cream!
I feel like Key Lime Pie is one of those pies that is always good. I mean, it’s hard to go wrong with a graham cracker crust, tart filling, and whipped cream. Or meringue, if that’s what you’re into.
How to Make Key Lime Pie Ice Cream
This is a really easy homemade ice cream recipe. There’s no heating of milk and cream and slowly drizzling that into eggs so you don’t scramble.
None of that in this recipe.
It is just milk, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, and regular lime zest and juice. You just have to whisk all of that together and freeze it according to your ice cream maker‘s manufacturer’s instructions.
Once the ice cream is frozen, you fold in chopped graham crackers. Then put it in a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.
It is everything you love about key lime pie and you can even top it with some whipped cream to make it really feel like pie.
