Here’s a treat to help cool you down! Effie Beshere-Walthall whipped up some super sweet and chill no-bake key lime mini pies! Check out the recipe!

No Bake Key Lime Mini Pies

•12 mini graham cracker crusts **see note

•6 oz reduced fat cream cheese, room temperature

•1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

•2/3 cup key lime juice

•1 1/4 tsp powdered gelatin

•1 tsp vanilla extract

•1 cup whipping cream

•2 heaping Tbsp powdered sugar

•key limes or limes for garnish

 

1.In the bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and 1/3 cup of the lime juice with a hand mixer. Beat until smooth.

2.In a small bowl, combine remaining lime juice, gelatin and vanilla extract. Heat in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, until juice is hot enough that the gelatin dissolves into it completely when you stir it.

3.Beat the gelatin mixture into the cream cheese mixture in very slowly stream.

4.Divide mixture in between pie crusts and  refrigerate for 3-4 hours, until set.

5.Before serving, whip whipping cream and powdered sugar together until it forms firm peaks.  Spoon or pipe the whipped cream onto the pie and garnish with a slice of key lime or wedge of lime. Serves 12

** Note: you can forgo the crusts if you want to and just serve them in custard dishes.  Just sprinkle with some graham cracker crumbs instead.
