Florida Key Lime Pie Dip

Another dessert dip- options are good!

Key Lime Pie is my favorite “non chocolate“ dessert, I love the zip of the little key limes!

Key Lime Pie Dip

 

Key limes are much smaller (ping-pong to golfball-sized) than Persian limes, nearly spherical, thin-skinned, and often contain a few seeds. Green key limes are actually immature fruits, prized for their acidity. As they ripen to a yellow color, the acid content diminishes greatly, resulting in a sweeter fruit

When you can’t get actual key Limes the juice makes a great substitute- just get some fresh limes to be able to include zest!

Some of my favorite ingredients!

 

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 5 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 6 graham cracker halves, crumbled
  • Zest on 1 Lime

Directions

  • Beat milk and cream cheese together until fluffy.  Add in lime juice and incorporate.
  • In a different bowl, whip the heavy cream and sugar together until you have firm peaks.
  • Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, add graham cracker and lime zest and gently combine.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve! Fresh fruit, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, chocolate dipped pretzels all are great to serve with dip!

Serves about 10 friends.

A Florida Must Have!

 

You can use light cream cheese to if you aren’t forgoing your diet today!  🙂

Quick, Easy and Tasty

 Wish everyone a safe and happy Super Bowl  Sunday!!
