This recipe is for those days when you just can’t shake a key lime pie craving, but don’t feel like making one. Wait, you get key lime pie cravings as much as I do – right? I’ll just go ahead and add “Sally’s Key Lime Pie Addiction” to the long list of alternative blog names.

When the days grow longer and the weather starts to get warmer, I want nothing but fresh fruits, lots of guacamole, frozen yogurt dates, cold brews, and key lime pie anything. By the way, have you tried my Key Lime Pie yet? The no-fail recipe is in my cookbook.

Sally's Baking Addiction Key Lime Pie Recipe

If you’re looking for a refreshing dessert milkshake to whip up this summer, this key lime pie milkshake is just the right ticket. You’ve got all the essential key lime pie flavors and textures, too. Sweet, creamy, tart lime, and of course… crunchy graham crackers! No key lime pie is complete without a buttery graham cracker crust.

These creamy milkshakes are a snap to make too. And Kevin, who says he “hates lime desserts” slurped this up in minutes.

Cool and creamy key lime pie milkshakes are the perfect blend of creamy vanilla frozen yogurt, tart key lime, and graham cracker crumbs!

For the milkshakes, I used vanilla frozen yogurt, key lime juice, vanilla extract, almond milk, a little vanilla coffee creamer, and graham crackers on top.

Substitutions: Use any brand vanilla fro-yo. And you could use vanilla ice cream instead, if that’s all you have on hand. The creamer is essential for my taste. I found that the milkshakes weren’t sweet enough without it. Sure, a little sugar would suffice to offset the tart lime, but I had creamer on hand so that’s what I used. Almond milk is what I drink, but if you’ve got regular milk, soy milk, etc – use that instead.

I tried to make these milkshakes with frozen banana fro-yo as the base, but I didn’t care for the flavor. Though the banana fro-yo tastes more vanilla-y than like bananas, it still did not work well with the key lime juice. Turns out you can add sprinkles or oreos, but not key lime juice to banana whip.

By the way, my funfetti nail polish is from Jindie Nails – my blog inspired that shade, she says! Pretty darn cool, right? I have a few shades from her, including green and pink.

This sweet ‘n tart milkshake makes the perfect afternoon snack or 10pm “gimme something sweet as quickly as possible” dessert –> happens to the best of us. It’s not too heavy, either. So you can absolutely have more than one…

It’s so good, you won’t really mind that it’s much lighter than a thick slice of the real thing. By the way, feel free to add a few spinach leaves to make the milkshake green. I know it sounds completely weird, but you won’t taste it with all that frozen yogurt and lime!

To all my key lime pie lovers… cheers.

Key Lime Pie Milkshakes

Cool and creamy key lime pie milkshakes are the perfect blend of creamy vanilla frozen yogurt, tart key lime, and graham cracker crumbs. Milkshakes are gluten free if using gluten free graham crackers or leaving them out.

Yield: Serves 2

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups your favorite vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
  • 3 Tablespoons key lime juice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk)*
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla coffee creamer*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 full sheet graham cracker, crushed

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients into the blender, in listed order, except for the graham cracker crumbs. Blend on high until thick and smooth. Taste and add more key lime for more lime flavor, more frozen yogurt for a thicker consistency, more milk to thin out.

Pour into glasses and top with crushed graham cracker. Enjoy immediately.

*If using plain milk (not vanilla flavored) add 1/2 - 1 extra teaspoon vanilla extract.

*The vanilla flavored creamer added so much sweetness and flavor! We both much preferred the milkshakes with it. Keeping that in mind, you could leave it out and replace with more milk.

    This looks so tempting, even at 6 AM! I have a problem. I admit it.
    And it’s a much better option than all those key lime ice cream flavors out there health-wise, even though I literally cannot keep my spoon out of the pint.
    Can’t wait to try this! Love the creamer, too. Very cool idea.

    Key-lime-pie lover, right here! ;) This looks delicious and so refreshing. Have you tried the key-lime-pie frozen yogurt by Dreyers? SO good :) Haha, before you even mentioned your nail polish, I was noticing that mine looks very similar…but mine is just white with multi-colored glitter on top; it’s not a single kind. :) Very summery!

    Lime desserts are fantabulous. Refreshing is right.

    I love the straws you used for your photos, I think I’d pay a dollar a piece for those =)

    And I haven’t tried your recipe for you key lime pie yet! It looks just like the one I sampled in Key West (go figure) a few years ago. I also bought a pair of lime green pants to match. Will wear while drinking this milkshake for sure!!
