Creamy Dreamy 5-Ingredient Key Lime Pudding Pops! The bright tangy flavor of classic key lime pie, frozen and perfectly portioned.
Every spring and summer my family takes road trips from the Blue Ridge down to the North and South Carolina shoreline. Every trip the kids talk about their goals of catching a live crab, learning to surf, or finding the most beautiful shell.
And every trip, I secretly make my own guileful goal: To eat as much Key Lime Pie as humanly possible while at the beach.
While Lt. Dan and the kids are discussing soft shell crab sandwiches, fresh oysters, and famous beach donut shops, I’m secretly counting all the places I can get good southern Key Lime Pie and wondering just how many pieces I can order without looking like a gluttonous slob.
Maybe 3 pieces at each restaurant? Is that over-doing it?? Is there really such a thing as over-doing it when it comes to Key Lime Pie???
I can see Dan’s disapproving nod in my mind… Shaking it off.
With such an attraction to key lime pie, you’d think I make it all the time.
Yet a lot of effort goes into making a killer key lime pie. And then of course you have to use the oven, which is something none of us want to do in the warm months.
So when I’m not at the beach, I get my summertime key lime fix by making cool creamy Key Lime Pudding Pops with graham crackers crumbles.
These little beauties combine the sweetness and powerful tang of a good key lime pie, in smooth frozen pudding pops… that require only 5 ingredients to make.
That’s hard to beat!
To make these easy 5-Ingredient Key Lime Pudding Pops simply combine instant vanilla pudding mix with sweetened condensed milk, fresh key lime juice mixed with water, and a little fresh lime zest. Beat with an egg beater until smooth and scoop into popsicle molds.
Then sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the top of the pudding pops and freeze until firm.
Then run the bottom of the popsicle molds under warm tap water and pull them out. Thhhhhhump.
These Key Lime Pudding Pops will drop-kick any key lime pie craving, no matter how powerful. The tart flavor and silky texture are something to experience. Even the most hardcore key lime pie lovers will approve. Trust me.
