Summer Lime Pie

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

Lemon, Lime, Orange…pretty much any citrus flavor just screams Summertime to me! Especially if it’s cool n’ creamy! With all the hot weather we have been having, I am trying not to heat up our kitchen. Our family loves the no bake Strawberry Pie so I knew this Lime Pie would be a hit too!

Perfect for potlucks – easy enough for weeknight dinner at home – and elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, this Lime Pie starts with Jell-O and has extra flavor with freshly squeezed lime juice and the zest of the lime.

    Oh, I am just in the mood for something fresh and cool and limey! This will hit the spot. Another super easy pie to make is to mix a regular container of Cool Whip with 2 cartons (8 oz each) of yogurt – pick your favorite flavor! Put this in a graham cracker crust and freeze overnight. (Lemon and Raspberry are the 2 preferred yogurt flavors at our house, but choose your favorite!)
