Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

I found this recipe on Pinterest (yes, I'm obsessed...) from The Hungry Housewife. I love the flavor of key limes, so this was right up my ally. I've also made bite-size key lime pies and key lime cupcakes. Ice cream was the only logical next step :-) This recipe has chocolate chips to give it the flavor of those frozen chocolate-covered key lime pies on a stick. I didn't like how hard the chocolate chips were when they were frozen, so next time I would omit them. If you really want a chocolate flavor added I think a chocolate swirl would be nice.

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 cup key lime juice, fresh or bottled
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 14 oz can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped (I just used what I had left in the bag, it was probably more like 4 oz)
  • 3 sheets plain or honey graham crackers

In a large bowl, stir together the milk, key lime juice, heavy cream, condensed milk and salt. 

Cover and place in the fridge for 2 hours or until the mixture is cold.
Pour into your ice cream maker and make according to your ice cream makers directions.
minutes before the ice cream is done add the lime zest, chocolate and graham crackers.

Remove from your ice cream makers bowl and place in a freezer safe container.

Place in the freezer until firm.
