Lime Pie Popsicles


These are just delicious - particularly on a hot summer day.  They have the perfect blend of tart lime, crunchy "pie crust" and sweet creaminess.  Super easy to make with ingredients you likely already have on hand.

For a fresher tasting pop I would recommend you go through the {slight} hassle of squeezing your own limes rather than substituting the juice with bottled.  Additionally, you can choose whether or not to dip them in graham crackers before serving which, in my opinion, adds a nice texture as well as the full "pie" flavor.


Lime Pie Popsicles
Source:  Paletas Cookbook
Makes 8-10 pops {depending on the size of your molds}

1 {14 ounce} can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup half & half
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice {about 4 large limes}
2 teaspoons lime zest
pinch of salt
3 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers

In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, half & half, lime juice, lime zest and salt.

Pour mixture into popsicle molds.  If you have a stick holder on your mold, you can insert the sticks immediately and freeze.  If you are using paper cups or a mold that doesn't have a stick holder, put the popsicles in the freezer for about 1 1/2 hours, until they begin to freeze, before inserting the sticks.

Freeze until solid, 4-5 hours.

Before serving, spread the graham crackers onto a large plate.  Unmold the popsicles and press each side into the graham crackers crumbs.  Serve immediately.

How yummy! I love that you put graham cracker crumbs on the outside. I think that gives it a nice touch and makes it more pie like :)
