Tart, fruity and sweet this Coconut Key Lime Pie is one of the best and most loved dessert pies! For this pie we’ve put coconut IN the crust, to pack even more of a flavor punch.
Key Lime Pie has long been one of my favorite flavors of pie, ever! I mean since I had my first bite many many years ago, I was hooked! I mean how can you not be hooked? The flavors of the tart limes mixed with the sweetness of the sweetened condensed milk? It’s just love in every single bite and I can’t get enough.
So when I get the chance, I always like to take spins of some of my favorite dishes to see if I can amp them up and make them better! Well my friends let me introduce you to the Coconut Key Lime Pie. I mean we all love to put the “lime in the coconut” right? So why not put the coconut in the lime this time? It only makes sense and seriously, to die for.
I have to admit, my secret crust for all my graham cracker bottomed pies is the coconut in the crust. Literally it’s a game changer. You don’t really even need coconut in the recipe to put coconut in the crust, it literally has the most amazing flavor ever. I sit and eat just the pie crust crumbs most of the time because I’m literally that addicted to it…no shame.
So this Coconut Key Lime Pie is seriously super simple, once you get past actually juicing your key limes….dreadful. If anyone has a more simple way to juice these puppies, I’d love to hear your secrets. I had to have my husband come help me…I hate the daunting task of juicing the key limes, but it’s all worth it in the end. But with desserts all the labor and work that goes into them are usually paid off!
So anyways, like I said this pie is super simple. All you need is your crust ingredients which are graham cracker crumbs, sugar, coconut and butter. And then your filling which is sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, sour cream and coconut. Say what?!?! Yes it’s seriously that simple! That’s why it’s a fave around here.
So if you’re looking for a delicious pie that takes a twist on a classic then this Coconut Key Lime Pie is the way to go! You will fall in love with a classic again!
