Key Lime Pie is a refreshing and tangy dessert that perfectly captures the flavors of summer. The combination of zesty lime and creamy cannamilk creates a guilt-free treat that is not only delicious but also low in calories. This recipe is easy to follow, making it a perfect choice for both beginners and experienced cooks.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 3 cups cannamilk
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Lime slices, for garnish

Going Step by Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
  3. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish, forming an even crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  4. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cannamilk, lime juice, lime zest, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Place the saucepan over medium heat.
  5. Cook the mixture while continuously whisking until it thickens and comes to a gentle boil. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Once the mixture has thickened, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  7. Pour the lime filling into the prepared crust, spreading it evenly.
  8. Place the pie in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 3 hours, or until set.
  9. Before serving, decorate the pie with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with lime slices.
  10. 10. Give it a try and enjoy!

Tips

  • For an extra citrusy kick, add a few drops of lime essential oil to the filling.
  • If you prefer a sweeter pie, you can increase the amount of sugar according to your taste.
  • To save time, you can use store-bought graham cracker crust instead of making your own.

We are sure you are a perfect cook! Nonetheless, do remember to pay attention to the amount of Key Lime Pie you consume: it should always be modified based on the strength of your product and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so it is strongly recommended to start with one portion of a serving. After one or two hours, listen to your body and decide whether to consume more. It is not recommended to drive or operate any machinery when taking edibles. Use responsibly!
