Not only is this a white chocolate key lime pie… it’s a 5 ingredient key lime pie! Who knew there was such a thing?
Well, leave it to my Grandma to know!
One of my favorite treasures is an old wooden recipe box that belonged to my grandmother.
I can sit and reread those recipe cards over and over, filled with delight as I see her handwriting and remember how much I enjoyed cooking with her in the kitchen.
I stumbled across this recipe in her collection and it seemed too easy to be true… Only 5 ingredients and no-bake? I’m in!
The best surprise was the decadence of this dessert. A little goes a long way, but your tastebuds will thank you.
Who knew there is such a thing as 5 ingredient Key Lime Pie?
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 (12 oz) bag vanilla/white chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1/2 & 1 tsp lime zest (or more, to taste)
- 1/3 cup bottled key lime juice
- 9” ready-made graham cracker crust or premade mini graham crusts
- Fresh raspberries (optional garnish)
- Lime slices (optional garnish)
- Whipped cream (optional garnish)
- Put the cream and chips in a small saucepan and melt down the morsels over low heat. (Make sure to keep heat low, so you don’t scald the cream or burn the chips.) This will take about 5 minutes. I like to use a whisk to make sure mixture is smooth.
- Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Whisk ingredients together.
- Pour the mixture into the crust and refrigerate the pie for at least 8 hours, or overnight. If you’re using the mini crusts, this will make 8. The pack is usually 6, so I’ll make the 6 and then make “crustless” for the other two. It’s more like a key lime custard dessert…still so good!
- Garnish the pie with the fresh raspberries, lime slices, or whipped cream.
As you can see, you can make the white chocolate key lime pie in both the full-size version and the mini versions. I like to make mini pies for gifting (you’d be surprised how many people like key lime during the holidays!).

And since the mini pies leave some extra filling, you can make a couple of crustless versions, too. No matter what type you make, your tastebuds will enjoy the tart, sweet and creamy flavors all at the same time!
