Frozen Key Lime Pie

Frozen Key Lime Pie is an amazingly delicious dessert.  Tangy, sweet and almost like an ice cream cake, it is sure to impress all your guests.


Frozen Key Lime Pie

There are desserts that I find to be synonymous with summer.  Fruit pies, lemon meringues and key limes.  They are amazing on their own but when you add in the frozen factor, you are taking it to a whole new level.

This dessert was made for our 4th of July barbecue as well, and got rave reviews.  It is so yummy, cold and creamy and perfect for a hot summer day.

Again, this is another recipe from Taste of Home so be sure to go on over and give them a look, you are sure to find a plethora of mouth watering dishes to make.

Now before you go and make it and enjoy it, let me warn you, it is NOT a low calorie dessert, like at all, but some days you have to throw caution to the wind and go for it.
