5-Ingredient Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

First, begin by buying your favorite vanilla ice cream...

Just kidding! It seems impossible with so few ingredients; but, we are literally going to make homemade ice cream using just 2 ingredients and the freezer! That's it! Prepare to be impressed!

Somehow they work together to create the creamiest ice cream base! Well, we know how. Whipped cream gives a light and airy texture without using an ice cream maker and the sugar from the sweetened condensed milk provides sweetness and keeps the ice cream a softer texture. Then, you can go in so many different flavor directions...choose your own adventure!

          - Vanilla Extract

          - Chocolate Syrup

          - Chocolate Chips

          - Crushed Cookies

          - Toasted Coconut

          - Frozen Fruit

          - Cookie Dough Chunks

          - Sprinkles

          - And so many more!

This is, by no means, a healthy dessert that should be eaten all summer long. Instead, it is a simple and fun treat to make and enjoy with family or friends. Spread the wealth- aka, the sugar, fat, and calories! This recipe is also terrific for kids, because it's so simple!

Do I need to use key limes?

Heck, no! They tend to be the best; however, I cannot always find them at my local grocery store. Also, they produce much less juice than other limes. For the freshest flavor, don't rely on a can or bottle. And, never forgo the zest!


More About Limes

  • Fresh lime juice is best!
  • Add zest to your baked goods- so much more flavor than juice alone!
  • "Regular" limes are darker green with thicker skin
  • Key limes are smaller, with a light yellow color
  • They keep for up to a month in the fridge
  • Each contains 2-3 Tbsp. of juice

Key lime pie is the official state pie of Florida! So, does every state have its' own pie???
