Key Lime Pie Popsicles

Key Lime Pie Popsicle - it's like frozen key lime pie on a stick!

I know that some of you are still digging out of the snow, but it doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy a popsicle. Ever since I purchased my new popsicle molds, I’ve been wanting to try these pops. Like ice cream, popsicles are relatively easy to make. Just mix up a creamy filling, freeze and you are ready to enjoy. These key lime pie popsicles are creamy, slightly tart and taste just like key lime pie. In addition to sharing these fun popsicles with you, I’ve also joined together with other bloggers to celebrate a special event.

Surprise! Today we are inviting you ALL to a virtual baby shower honoring Kelly fromΒ Life Made SweeterΒ and Hilary fromΒ My Own Blog Review. To celebrate, we are sharing 12 recipes and crafts that are ready to “pop”. Make sure to “pop” over and check out everyone’s posts. Congratulations Kelly and Hilary!

Key Lime Pie Popsicle - it's like frozen key lime pie on a stick!

I found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen last summer and have been wanting to make them ever since. To be honest, I’m not sure why it took so long to make these because they are SO GOOD! They taste just like key lime pie in popsicle form, so creamy and flavorful.

    Love these and what better way to use my key limes from my backyard tree than a frozen treat. After all, living in Florida, we can use the cool down. Thanks for sharing on Buns In My Oven.

  36. Brooke

    Oh wow, so many delicious looking recipes!! Can you believe that I have never had key lime pie?? I know…I can’t believe it either!! I might just have to try it in popsicle form first. These look delicious! I eat mostly vegan these days so hopefully I’ll have some luck with my substitutions, otherwise this might have to be a cheat treat for me! Beautiful pictures.

    • Ashley

      I can’t believe you’ve never had key lime pie, Brooke! Maybe it’s the Floridian in me, but key lime pie reminds me of summer at the beach πŸ™‚ You know, I bet you could make them vegan. I haven’t tried it yet, but I might have to try next time.

  37. Chelsea @chelseasmessyapron

    Ahhh!! This makes me SO excited for summer! What an awesome idea and beautiful photos. Love the graham cracker “crust” on these popsicles!

    These were great but really high in calories for a snack. I think I might try doing something much lighter maybe with coconut milk instead of condensed milk.
