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.

  7. How much water?  It is notmentioned as an ingredient?

  8. These look so easy and refreshing, I love the graham cracker crumbs on the bottom. I love graham cracker crusts the most so these will have to be made. They feel like an adult version of a popsicle and so much classier. 

  9. I love key lime pies. These pops are a terrific build on the original!
    My request to you is if you have a “long” version with no instant pudding. I try to avoid packaged food as much as possible (in this case, making a sweet exception for the condensed milk.)
    Thank you :)
