Key Lime Pie Popsicles

Pin It
You know how they say that you and your partner sort of become "one" once you get married? Well Chris and I are beyond that. We like the same movies. The same snacks. The same TV shows. Before I even make something, I know if he will or won't like it. And we also both learned to love things that we didn't love before solely because the other person is a fan. In my case: key limes.
It's not that I didn't like them before; I just rarely had them. I never would have ordered a key lime dessert off of a dinner menu before I met Chris, but now it's one of my go-to sweet treats. So as soon as I saw that Mary Anne and Mariel from Feast on the Cheap had a recipe for Key Lime Pie POPSICLES, I knew what my Secret Recipe Club post was going to be.

One thing I absolutely love about Feast on the Cheap is that it is co-hosted by a mother-daughter team. I love cooking with my mom, so I know how special the duo must be for them. Their website is filled with a ton of amazing recipes, including these refreshing and delicious (and simple!) Key Lime Pops, so I highly suggest you going over and checking out their site! These pops were perfect on a hot summer evening and tasted just like a frozen version of my favorite pie. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat graham crackers crumbs
  • Juice of 7 limes or about 3/4 cup of Key Lime juice
  • 1 (32 oz.) container of low-fat or no-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 (8 oz.) package low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 sleeve of 5 oz. Dixie cups
Using an electric or hand mixer, combine the sugar, yogurt, cream cheese, lime juice and all but 2 tbsp. of the graham cracker crumbs on medium-high speed. Blend until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle a pinch of the remaining ground graham crackers in the bottom of each Dixie cup, then pour in the filling until about 3/4 full. Poke the popsicle sticks into each cup.

Freeze your pops for 2 hours before eating. About an hour in, straighten any sticks that are lopsided.

Note: If you’re freezing these overnight, cover the pops with some saran wrap to prevent potent ice box aromas from tainting the flavor of your desserts.
