Key Lime Pie Milkshake #IceCreamWeek

Key Lime Pie Milkshake is Summer in a glass. Drink up these last few weeks of Summer sun with this tart and sweet ice cream treat!


Welcome to Day 6, the final day of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. I hope you all threw out the scales this week. Better not to look!


I love all things key lime. I'm a Florida girl and growing up in South Miami, there was an abundance of citrus, including key limes. This is one of my all-time favorite flavors and I love creating new recipes using key limes. I recently did a Key Lime Pie Cheesecake for National Cheesecake Day and man was it good!


This milkshake is all the goodness of my beloved key lime pie, but in a drink. Ice cream makes everything better, so there was only one way to make key lime pie better and that is by turning it into Key Lime Pie Ice Cream. It is the perfect amount of tart and sweet for a milkshake and I love the crunchy bits graham cracker crumbs throughout the shake.

  1. Terri,
    I think you're onto something with the idea of drinking the flavors! I know when my son was little, and refused to eat vegetables, he'd drink smoothies made with fruits and vegetables (now he eats eggplant and kohlrabi so it's all good). This milkshake looks delicious--and it's garnished to perfection.
    Thanks!
