Easy Key Lime Pie Dip Recipe

So remember back in the 90’s when “fat free” was a thing?

I was all over that.

Because I could “diet” while eating handfuls of gummy worms, Sweet Tarts and Fun Dip.  It was basically the best diet fad ever.

And then those Fat Free Snackwell’s cookies came out and completely ruled my college years.

Ahhh, the 90’s were a good time.

I may or may not have eaten those cookies by the boxful.

They’re fattttt freeeeee we would tell ourselves sitting on the floor of our 9×11 college dorm room.  Because everyone knows that if something is “fat free” you can eat an infinity amount and it doesn’t count.  It was glorious.

 

Until my jeans didn’t fit.

I had to quit the fat-free.  It was making me fat-expensive.

 

But here’s the thing.

I made this dip.

Actually by accident…I was trying to make something entirely different, and before I knew it, I had licked the whole bowl clean, deeming this “dip”, due to the number of belly flops my finger did into the bowl.

“Dip” is a nicer name than “a bowl of stuff that you ate with your finger because you couldn’t wait to for it to fully ‘set up’,  because you’re a  fatty” dessert.

And then “for research” I made the dip again…and I made it fat free, because I was feeling Snackwell’s-nostalgic.

Which is actually a condition.

Look it up.

 

ps ~ having tasted both the full-fat and fat-free versions of this dip, make the fat free, they taste the same…save your fat for a Reese’s Cup.

This is basically the easiest dessert ever.

How to Make Key Lime Pie Dip

All it takes is 3 ingredients, a bowl, a whisk and you’re done.

Mix some Key Lime Juice and sweetened condensed milk together…

The acidic fruit juice combined with the SCM thickens the mixture without heating…it’s all sciency and stuff…

The for added measure I plopped in some Marshmallow Fluff.  Just for a little something extra.

I let it chill for a bit and then dove in.  Literally.

Thanks for this! Mine is currently in the fridge, cooling. It’s delicious but I hope the cooling time thickens it up because it’s a little runny.

A little LTTP here but I followed this link from another post of yours. This sounds wonderful! And I’m totally now remembering back to the snack wells days. My mom was always dieting and would buy these, attempting to hide them. Well, it never worked – I always found and inhaled them. The devil’s food cake cookies… YuM!

I made this dip today. The taste was absolutely wonderful but didn’t thicken up very well. What did I do wrong?

I made this just because and I’m sure glad I did. It’s delicious and creamy and all mine because my little family doesn’t like key lime anything. Thanks for such a simple yummy treat.

That looks so yummy!

I definitely went through a fat free phase…then I remembered my undying love of peanut butter. That ended that. But I’m still all for cutting corners when I can. Love the sound of this!

Robin @ Simply Southern Baking

Sounds fabulous…and the perfect treat for this summer heat!

Lynna

Ahaha. this sounds so wonderful & so was our story of fat-free.

JulieD

OMG OMG I was obsessed with Snackwell’s. True story, my friend sent me a video of me in high school offering some candy to my yearbook teacher & saying it’s fat free! hahaha

this key lime pie dip looks amazing!

Eliana

What a genius idea! I could see myself dipping just about everything into this.

Michelle

Um yum! And if you add a splash (or 5) of tequila it could be a margarita dip!

You know what I remember? When bagels were diet food. Good times….. A big ol’ fluffy bagel with some light cream cheese – nothing like a gazillion white flour carbs to start your day!

Ali @ Gimme Some Oven

Brilliant!!! Love the idea of this in a dip! 🙂

Averie @ Averie Cooks

The fat free & fat expensive – lol’ing b/c all that fatfree stuff was so expensive!

Great dip!

Kim of Mo

Girlll, I still have the ‘it’s fat free so stuff your face’ mentality. It’s definitely a mental illness. And I’m still fat, so obviously it doesn’t work like that. *sigh* I know this ‘dip’ is fabulous b/c this is how my mom always made Lemon Pie….with lemon juice instead of lime and minus the fluff, and she put meringue on top (which makes it something totally different) but my point is sweetened condensed milk plus lemon or lime juice is fantastic!
