These Easy Key Lime Pie Ice Cream Are So Refreshing!

There is just something about Key Lime Pie in the summer. I mean, I am all about a Key Lime dessert anytime of the year, but they just hit a little different when it’s warm outside.

And this easy ice cream sandwich recipe is honestly one of those sweet treats that you will want to make all summer long.

You make a simple no churn ice cream and then sandwich it between 2 graham crackers. Kind of a lot like key lime pie, honestly…that you can hold with your hands.

And if you’ve never made no churn ice cream, you’re in for a real treat. It’s creamy rich…and there’s sweetened condensed milk involved, which I will get to in a minute.

These are fantastic for parties because you can make them way ahead…or an easy dessert to have in your freezer when you want something a little sweet.

How to Make Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

What’s great about these is you all you need is a mixer and a freezer.  Well, and all the ingredients…and a spoon…and some time…

You mix up your ice cream/key lime filling, which is super easy.  Heavy cream, Key Lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, sugar…it just keeps getting better doesn’t it?

The consistency will look like this:

Pour that into a plastic container and freeze it for 5-6 hours.

At that point it will be almost frozen, but still spreadable.

If you forget it and leave it in longer, it’s not a problem, just let it sit on the counter until it warms up to a spreadable consistency.

Then assemble your ice cream sandwiches using graham crackers!

You’ll use about 1/4 cup of ice cream on each…

Top the ice cream with another graham cracker and then you can individually wrap them in cling wrap and freeze until they are completely firm, about another hour or so.

You can make these days in advance, which is pretty awesome.

Trust me, these are amazing.

  1. I have all the ingredients ready to make this! Do you think I can make this recipe using an ice cream maker instead, without whipping the cream?

    1. NO, I don’t think so. If you have an ice cream maker maybe just make traditional ice cream. The whipped cream is a huge part of the recipe for this 🙂

    After having saved this recipe for over a year I FINALLY made it! Next time I’m going to freeze the ice cream in a glass pan so I can slice the correct shapes for the graham crackers. 🙂

  3. Oh. My. Gosh. I cannot wait to make these in the summer! I just stumbled on your site tonight and this was one of the first recipes I saw, which made me totally excited!
