Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

I couldn't wait to try this recipe for Key Lime Pie Ice Cream when Jamie of My Baking Addiction shared it as a guest post over at goodLife {eats}. The thought of the tart key lime pie flavor made my mouth water and pucker all at once. I'm so glad I gave this recipe a try; this is hands down the easiest ice cream recipe I've ever made. You simply whisk a few ingredients together, chill, then let the mixture freeze in your ice cream maker. How easy is that?

This would be the perfect simple dessert for summer entertaining. The cold, tart ice cream would make a lovely finish to a cookout on a hot summer's day. You could prepare the ice cream ahead of time and keep it in the freezer before serving, or prepare the base and keep it chilled, then churn the ice cream just before serving for a delightful soft-serve consistency.

I can't wait to make this ice cream again and try sandwiching it between two homemade graham crackers for the perfect summer ice cream sandwich. I found this recipe pretty tart, so I'd definitely suggest starting with a less key lime juice, tasting, and adding more to your preference if you like things a bit sweeter. If you're a fan of Key Lime Pie, you've got to give this recipe a try! You'll be amazed at how quickly it comes together and how vibrant the resulting flavors are. This is definitely one to keep around for summer entertaining.
