Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

It’s my second full day off of work and I can’t seem to drab my butt out of bed before 10, I’m almost ashamed to admit that I slept for over 12 hours last night. I’m kinda thinking I may need to set an alarm tomorrow, so I can actually get some things crossed off the to-do list.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember me raving about an incredible ice cream flavor a couple of weeks ago. Well, I wasn’t holding out on you, I was saving it and all its Key Lime glory to share with you as a guest post on goodLife {eats} while Katie is taking a little time away from her blog.

Clearly it’s a guest posting kind of week, first I shared Butter Pecan Bars on Bluebonnets & Brownies, then Cherry Crisp in Jars on My Kitchen Addiction and now this decadent homemade Key Lime Pie Ice Cream on goodLife {eats}.

Katie is one of my favorite people ever; she’s talented, funny, and quite adorable. Her blog is full of amazing photographs and delicious recipes like Indian Butter Chicken (one of my favorite meals ever), Homemade Hamburger Buns and Meyer Lemon Sticky Rolls (whoa, baby)!

The Key Lime Pie Ice Cream recipe is adapted from Cooking Light, but I wasn’t quite fond of the texture in the original recipe, so in true MBA style, I pumped up the fat content with whole milk which helped make the texture super smooth and creamy.

This ice cream seriously tastes like key lime pie in ice cream form, right down to the graham cracker crust. With temperatures quickly rising, this Key Lime Pie Ice Cream is the perfect way to escape the summer heat!

Head over to goodLife {eats} for the recipe and while you’re there be sure to browse Katie’s fantastic recipe index. Have an awesome day!

    I’m so happy I found your blog. Everything you post looks so amazing and this is no exception. Question, where did you find those adorable ice cream cups?

    Delicious and flavorful ice cream..

    I loved that you “pumped up the fat content” in the Cooking Light recipe. I love their recipes, but I am not a huge fan of using low-fat products. I would rather have half a portion of the real thing. I actually love Cooking Light recipes, but rarely make the light version.
    This one looks amazing, I am a huge fan of Key Lime Pie and Butter Chicken…so I guess I better head over to Katie’s blog and check them both out! Thanks for the tip.

    Yum! This looks amazing! I recently became addicted to key lime pie… I’m definitely going to have to go out and buy myself an ice cream maker so I can make this. Thanks for sharing!

    So lovely! I saw this recipe over at Katie’s site, and I just had to stop by and let you know that it looks incredible. I can’t wait to make it…I’m pretty sure it will quickly become one of my new favorites. I love all things lime!


  12. Becca — June 8, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    Mmmm Key Lime Pie is good, and ice cream is good, so there’s probably no reason for key lime pie ice cream not to taste good also :)

    As always, your pictures look amazing.

    Oh. My. Heavens. This looks easy and so delicious! I cannot wait to try it (and luckily I have all the ingredients except cream, guess I’ll be picking that up tomorrow)! You sure know how to make a pregnant woman’s night!


  19. Kelly Bradrick — July 8, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Where, may I ask did you get the cute wooden ice cream spoons? I just love them!! :)


  20. Kulsum at JourneyKitchen — July 28, 2011 at 3:48 am

    Looks fabulous. Going to Katie’s to check out the recipe!


  21. rachael — August 25, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    These look fantastic and where did you get the cups?


  22. Melanie — October 13, 2011 at 8:32 am

    I LOVE this recipe! It’s one of the easiest and most tasty ice cream recipes I’ve tried. I recently made it with Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk and found that substitution acceptable. I also enjoy adding extra graham cracker crumbs. Thanks for sharing this one!


  23. Aurelia — June 26, 2012 at 6:52 am

    Looks so yummie!!!


  24. Veronica Vaughan — April 25, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Is there a recipe for this ice cream treat?? I would love to make it for my family and friends.
