15 Key Lime Pie Recipes

The scent of sunscreen is in the air…minivans arrive by the droves to unload groups of floatie-laiden children into the nearest public pool. For some, the arrival of summer means family vacations, days spent at the beach, kids and teachers on the loose, looking to have a little fun before school starts up again…

But for those of us who keep on working no matter what the season, there’s little to look forward to come summertime. Climbing into hot cars after a crappy day at work, dealing with alternating temperatures throughout your office building, not being able to “dress for the heat” without violating some company dress code…these are challenging times for corporate Americans…however, there’s one thing us low men can look forward to with the arrival of summer…KEY LIME PIE EVERYTHING.

Forget pumpkin spice…PSL’s aren’t really THAT great and you know it. The seasonal flavor to savor is key lime. Pies, ice cream, cheesecakes, fruit dips, even cocktails are made that much better with the addition of a zesty key lime.

So celebrate summer the right way with these 15 zesty key lime pie recipes!

12 Tasty Ice Box Pies

YOU GUYS…summer is the worst.

sweaty summer GIF by Thoka Maer

It’s hot, muggy, and literally impossible to turn your oven on without heating up your entire house. This, of course, makes it near impossible to enjoy a yummy cake in the summertime…unless it’s an ICE BOX CAKE.

Made almost completely in your freezer and featuring such delicious foods as whipped cream, ice cream, and fruit, ice box cakes and pies are an awesome summertime staple. They’re great for summer birthdays, BBQ’s, or just to cool down on a hot summer afternoon.

Often inspired by delicious cocktails (like pina coladas and margaritas), ice box cakes make it slightly easier to enjoy the bright summer sunshine!
