My Eggless Key Lime Pie uses no eggs, and can easily be made dairy-free too! A beautiful buttery biscuit base, filled with creamy key lime filling and topped with swirls of softly whipped cream and lime zest. Brilliant for entertaining – or just because!
My love affair with citrus flavours in bakes
During the summer months, I love baking and desserts with anything citrus flavoured. Lemon Squares tend to be my go-to for picnics and bring-and-share type events, but I also love these Lemon Limoncello Cupcakes as an adult treat! In continuing down sharing a variety of citrus-inspired recipes, I knew sharing this easy eggless Key Lime Pie recipe was to be high on the list!
A lot of the recipes I’ve come across for key lime are either no-bake, or contain eggs and require baking. I love the texture of baked pies and cheesecakes, I find them so much creamier and melt-in-your-mouth, but naturally love the ease of no-bake recipes too. My Key Lime Pie recipe doesn’t use eggs but does require baking to give the beautifully creamy texture I adore. A little effort, I know, but so worth it, I can assure you!
Key limes in the UK
Living in the UK, we don’t get key limes very easily, as they’re very much an American thing. From my understanding, key limes are smaller, with a stronger aroma and more acidity than the limes we get here in the UK. Now, I can’t claim to have found and used key limes in my recipe, but I do love the zing of limes, so I can assure you this recipe definitely delivers on flavour!
How to make my Eggless Key Lime Pie Recipe
Making this is actually really rather easy. Blitz or crush your biscuits in a food processor, or bash them in a freezer bag using a rolling pin if you don’t have a food processor. Mix with butter and press into your tin, then bake 10 minutes whilst you make the filling.
In a large mixing bowl, mix your condensed milk, yoghurt and lime zest and juice until smooth and well combined. Pour over your base and pop back in the oven to melt together and firm up. Then chill, top with some softly whipped cream and garnish with extra lime zest. Et voilà! Your easy eggless Key Lime Pie is good to go!
Don’t forget to come back and let me know how this turns out for you if you make it!
