No bake Key lime pie

The only thing I can say about this pie is WOW…..

Lately I am loving the no bake part of making desserts and since I just found the perfect consistency to making no bake cheesecake I can actually obtain endless variations. Loving that….

Again, this one is super simple and very refreshing. I made it for a lunch date I had with one of my girlfriends after having some spicy Indian food. It was just the perfect end to our meal.

You can use any pan you wish. In this case I used a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom but you can use either a cheesecake pan with removable bottom of any size you prefer or a springform pan.

I am planning on making a raspberry and cappuccino no bake cheesecake. I am super excited. I just hope they turn out ok so that I can post the recipe. Until then….


You can perfectly make this pie in any other pan you may prefer. A springform or a cheesecan pan with removable bottom will work well.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 8-10 servings


8 oz cream cheese, 1/3 less fat
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
Juice of 3-4 key limes, regular limes will also work


1 1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 cup honey nut cheerios, I used multigrain cheerios from TJoes
1 stick butter, melted



In a food processor pulverize the oats and cheerios. Transfer to a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom and add the melted butter. Combine and press down onto the base and sides of the cake pan.You can also use a sprinform pan or a cheesecake pan with removable bottom.

In a bowl combine the cream cheese, sugar and lime juice. In another bowl whipped the heavy cream. Fold the whipped cream into the lime cream cheese mixture.

Add the cream cheese mixture over the crust and decorate as desired. Refrigerate over night.

  1. lovely…………but I always wonder how much is a stick of butter in grams…..I guess our 250 gr butter pot isn’t the same of your stick. I love your blog and I visit it every time you publish, although, I have never written before…

  2. This sounds and looks super! I LOVE key lime pie. Either key lime or peanut butter pie is my favorite dessert ever. And I’m looking forward to the raspberry cappuccino version! I’ve never had coffee, but I love baked goods with coffee in them.

  3. Intxaurtsu,

    A stick of butter is exactly 113 gr. I hope it helps.

    Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

  4. Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe!! It sounds amazing. I have a very productive Key Lime tree and I’m always looking for recipes to use up those limes. Idon’t like the pie where you use the sweetened condensed milk so I am so looking forward to making this pie!
    hugs, mickie “luny”

  5. Have you made the cappuccino no bake cheesecake (without raspberries) yet or tried making a mocha one? Would love the recipe if you have. BTW, your recipes are wonderful! Thanks!

  6. Can you use key lime juice? If so, how much do you think is equivalent to the 3-4 key limes in your recipe? It looks delish!!! :)
