This ice cream has all the flavors of classic Key lime pie--even the crust. We used bottled Key lime juice for convenience. You can also squeeze the juice from fresh Key limes if your supermarket carries them.
1 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup bottled Key lime juice (such as Nellie and Joe's)
1/2 cup whipping cream
Dash of salt
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
6 graham crackers (1 1/2 cookie sheets), coarsely crushed, divided
Key lime wedges (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Pour mixture into freezer can of an ice-cream freezer, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Stir 1/3 cup graham crackers into ice cream. Spoon ice cream into a freezer-safe container, and cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm. Sprinkle each serving with 1 teaspoon graham crackers. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
Ok, so I didn't use the exact ingredients (used heavy instead of regular cream & reg. cond. milk instead of FF) because I didn't have them on hand but this ice cream still turned out AWESOME! FULL of flavor and the grahams added the perfect touch/texture! I've even adapted the recipe for other flavors like peach, banana, cookie dough & plain vanilla! Simply amazing! Love, love, LOVE it! Much better than the egg recipe I'm used to using! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe! I will certainly continue using this recipe as a base for any other flavors I can think of!! ...like Butter Pecan or cherry cordial!!
Awesome! This recipe was very big hit at our house. My family is already asking when we'll make it again. I stirred all of the graham crackers into the icecream. I used 1% instead 2, and fat-free half & half instead of whipping cream (because that's what I had) and it was still delicious. Very crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day.
Wonderful! Very light and almost airy tasting. One taster mentioned that it tastes like it has cool whip. I cut the sweetened condensed milk a little based on other feedback on sweetness. Will make again!
Easy, quick, and delicious. Instead of the graham crackers, I used graham cracker pie shell pieces. Put the shell in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, then break into small chunks before adding to ice cream. Absolutely fantastic!
Awesome recipe for real! I doubled the graham crackers and added them once the ice cream was done mixing, I also used a 50/50 mixture including 2% milk and vanilla creamer for coffee, and used regular sweetened condensed milk. Then I mixed it for a half hour and put it in the ice cream machine***
