That’s right, my Key Lime Pie Dip takes everything you love about the classic dessert and turns it into a cool and refreshing layered dip. A slice of pie is rather boring, but all the great flavors of that pie in a dip is much more fun. Plus, you can dunk just about anything in there, and it will be divine. I used the Pillsbury Key Lime Cookies.

Best of all, this is much easier to whip up than an actual pie, and it is perfect for serving up at a party. It’s no-bake, and the ingredient list is relatively short. It couldn’t be any more perfect for springtime.

How to Make Key Lime Pie Dip

Step-by-Step

  • 1A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:
    Temperature plays an important role in this recipe. The Jell-O mix needs to be boiled then cooled.
  • 2The pudding needs to be made with the cooled Jell-O mixture and chilled sweetened condensed milk.

    Remember to chill the sweetened condensed milk ahead of time!
  • 3The cream needs to be ultra-chilled to be whipped.
  • 4You’ll want to finish this within the first day or two because whipped cream does start to separate.
  • 5Making the Dip:
    Place 1/2 cup of the water in the freezer.
  • 6Bring the remaining 1/2 cup of the water to boil in a small saucepan and whisk in lime Jell-O mix until completely dissolved.
  • 7Remove from heat and let come to room temperature.
  • 8Transfer to the freezer for a few minutes just until cool. Do NOT let it solidify.
  • 9In a large mixing bowl, whisk together Jell-O mixture, chilled water, chilled sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla pudding mix until well-combined and thickened, about two minutes.
  • 10Transfer to the fridge until completely set, about 10 minutes.
  • 11In a separate bowl, beat cream on high until stiff peaks form.
  • 12Divide in half and fold one half into the lime pudding until evenly combined.
  • 13Whisk powdered sugar into the remaining half of whipped cream.
  • 14In a large glass bowl or trifle dish, layer lime mousse, graham crackers, and whipped cream until you run out.
  • 15Dip whatever you’d like in it, or eat it with a spoon.
  • 16Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
  • 17For dippers, try graham crackers, sugar cookies, shortbread, Teddy Grahams, and more.
