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?

When the days grow longer and the weather starts to warm, 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?

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.

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.

I tried to make these milkshakes with frozen bananas 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.

By the way, my funfetti nail polish is from Jindie Nails – my blog inspired that shade, she says! Pretty cool, right?

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 odd, but you won’t taste it with all that frozen yogurt and lime!

Description

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.


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 pure vanilla extract
  • 1 full sheet graham cracker, crushed

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. Pour into glasses and top with crushed graham cracker. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  1. Milk: If using plain milk (not vanilla flavored) add 1/2 – 1 extra teaspoon vanilla extract.
  2. Creamer: 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.

  1. 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.

    1. I’ve never had key lime flavored ice cream before – it sounds dangerously addicting!

  2. Key-lime-pie lover, right here! πŸ˜‰ This looks delicious and so refreshing. Have you tried the key-lime-pie frozen yogurt by Dreyers? SO good πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ Very summery!

    1. I have not tried that yet, Caley! Must get my hands on it.

  3. Chloe @ foodlikecake says:

    This looks amazing! I would have three of those in minutes!

  4. Ohh how I would kill to have one of these while sitting on my balcony enjoying the weather <3

  5. Laura @ Raise Your Garden says:

    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!!

    1. I just bought a pair of green pants too. We can enjoy our milkshakes in total style.

  6. Rochelle @ Oh So Sweet Baker says:

    Mmmmm..these shakes look delicious. I sooo want to spike this with tequila!

    1. Best idea ever.

  7. Chelsea @ Gal on a Mission says:

    That is very neat that you have your own inspired nail color! Neato, Sally! I bet this milkshake is amazing, anything with key lime in it has my vote! Pinned for ya. Have a great Tuesday. πŸ™‚

    1. You’ve gotta pick up that share, Chelsea! Love it.

  8. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says:

    Lime recipes are so popular this season, and this milkshake is no exception! Looks beautiful and sounds even more delicious! I love the addition of the graham crackers and coffee creamer, gives it something extra!

    1. If it was acceptable to post lime recipes in October or December or February or year-round, I would. I could gobble them up any time!

  9. Melanie @ Carmel Moments says:

    Ahhh….yes. What’s not to love about these? Well, except that lime prices have went through the roof! This looks like it’s the worth the expensive limes though. πŸ™‚
    Have a great day Sally!

    1. You can also buy key lime juice in the juice aisle!

  10. Faith @ Pixie Dust Kitchen says:

    Can you believe I’ve never had a key lime pie? I think that might have to change with all this key lime going on here!

    1. FAITH. Stop what you are doing and make a key lime pie dessert ASAP. Life changing, I tell ya.

  11. Erin | The Law Student's Wife says:

    Portable key lime pie ready to join me on my summer adventures? Perfection! Love that the crust got in there too–it’s a necessity!

  12. Thanks for the warning about using frozen banana whip because that is where my mind automatically went! This looks crazy delicious, Sally!

    And your nail polish…OMG! That is so cool you inspired it and I LOVE the color!!! Am sitting here wondering if I can get away with it at work? Maybe on my toes…. πŸ˜‰

    1. Definitely on your toes. πŸ™‚ It’s definitely a little too wild for everyday work. Obsessed with it!

  13. Averie @ Averie Cooks says:

    The sweet β€˜n tart aspect gets me every time – love that! i just made a lemon dessert over the weekend and normally I’m not that huge of a lemon person but it’s the sweet/tart thing that draws me in. I’d devour this milkshake! Can we spike it, too? πŸ™‚ pinned

  14. Oh yum! I cannot wait to try this! Totally pinned! πŸ˜‰

  15. Beth @ bethcakes says:

    I’m in love with this milkshake! I’ve been really into key lime things recently. For some reason, I never really liked key lime pie growing up, but I’ve seen the error of my ways. πŸ˜‰ This milkshake looks so perfect for a summer snack! Love the graham cracker crumbs on top too. Very necessary!

  16. What an awesome drink, Sally! I just happened to have some key limes from my food co-op. I was debating whether to make key lime pie or something else. And boom… you posted this! Thank you!

  17. I didn’t realize this recipe is so simple! I love key lime pie! Perfect for a BBQ gathering thanks!

    1. Yeah! Make a big batch and serve to guests to keep them cool. These milkshakes are great and don’t taste too heavy at all, either.

  18. Bethany @ Accidental Intentions says:

    Oh MAN. Key lime pie is one of my favorite desserts, so this sounds heavenly! I need to have an actual key lime pie slice sometime this summer…I’ve been getting by with key lime yogurt (my favorite <3), but it's been way, way too long since I've had the real thing.

  19. Cate @ Chez CateyLou says:

    Sally this sounds sooo delicious and refreshing! What a fun treat for a hot summer day! Yum!!

  20. This milkshake – easily my new addiction! Love this idea, Sally! Pinned!

  21. i need this. like today. target has limes on sale right now too. it’s like it was meant to be.

    1. I just ran out and this gives me an excuse to go to Target. Like I need one anyway!

  22. Julie @ Lovely Little Kitchen says:

    Love the addition of coffee creamer! That would definitely take a milkshake up a notch. Can’t wait to try this. YUM!!!

  23. This would probably be good with a little tequila added in or some lime vodka! You know… For “those” kind of days. ;o)

    I love the funfetti nail polish! I keep seeing it on your Instagram. It’s so cute she made it for you and your blog. True fan right there!

    1. Yes to the tequila. A major YES. Thanks about the polish, it’s adorable!

  24. Heather @ French Press says:

    we ALL love key lime, my kids eat key lime yogurt every single day, so I know this is going to be a BIG hit for the summer. thanks for the great recipe

  25. Joanna @ the knit lit twit says:

    Yum, I love lime! And I’m so with you on the summertime cravings for froyo and fresh fruit.

  26. Hey Sally! Long time no comment! This milkshake looks absolutely amazing! I actually made the key lime pie from your cookbook for mothers day and everyone loved it!! It was perfect πŸ˜€ I also made the BBQ chicken fingers and your giant cinnamon roll cake. The chicken fingers were delicious and the giant cinnamon roll cake…. i have no words it was that amazing! I think it was seriously one of the best things i have EVER eaten πŸ˜€

    1. Love the key lime pie recipe and I’m so happy you tried it out, Teresa! I hope you’ve been well – up to lots of baking I see! Amazing. Love that cinnamon roll cake.

  27. Matt Robinson says:

    I want one of these so badly Sally, love the flavoring so much!!!

  28. Linda @ Veganosity says:

    Sally, this looks soooo good! My son LOVES key lime pie, so I know that he will love this.

    I like that you use almond milk. I’m going to try using almond ice cream to make it vegan. I can’t wait to try it!

    1. Sounds great, Linda. Enjoy.

  29. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says:

    So I just had key lime pie for the first time (!!!!!!) in Miami and now I want it all the time. Like, ALLLLLLLL the time. This is fabulous Sally!

    1. The first time!! Oh Dorothy, your world is now THAT much better. πŸ™‚

  30. Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life says:

    I wonder what the difference is between Key Limes and the limes I find in my Aussie supermarket…will have to investigate. I love citrus based desserts and this sounds delicious. And of course, a milkshake that tastes like a pie is really just deliciousness squared!

    1. Hey Amy! Key limes are smaller and have a more concentrated lime flavor. They only grow in the Florida keys. Regular lime juice works here too!
