- 6 tablespoons key lime juice
- 1 can 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped, divided
- green food coloring
- 1 prepared graham cracker crust (9 inches)
Mix the lime and sweetened condensed milk along with drops of green food coloring until it becomes the desired shade of green. Separate about 1/3 cup of whipped cream for garnish and refrigerate. I also added a drop of food coloring to the whipped cream. Then fold in the remaining whipped cream into the milk and lime mixture. Gently spoon into the prepared graham cracker crust and freeze for several hours of overnight.
I thought about making my own graham cracker crust, but when I saw a perfectly good one already made at the store, I went with that one instead! Hey with five young kids, I’m always looking for ways to speed things up!
Take the pie out of the freezer for a few minutes before ready to serve. Don’t forget the reserved whipped cream for the topping! This is a great kid pleaser after a strange St. Patrick’s Day meal! Ha!
