  1. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Chill until mixture starts to congeal.
  2. In a separate bowl (after gelatin has started to thicken and congeal) mix milk, lime juice, food coloring and grated lime rind until well blended.
  3. Stir in sour cream; then fold in thickened gelatin. Pour into pastry shell. Chill until firm.
  4. Garnish with whipped topping or whipped cream and lime slices.

This is an excellent no-bake key-lime pie. I especially like the smooth texture. The blend of the milk with sour cream and gelatin gives it a very "summery" cool taste. The only thing I would do is to leave out the lime zest; it doesn't go well with the smooth texture. Even still, I will make this again. Oh one more thing, I used a pre-made graham cracker crust, as that's what I prefer with key-lime.

Jello Girl

I thought it was great. I made 48 little tarts. One suggestion, don't let Jello thicken, add it to condensed milk mixture when it is room temperature. You don't want to risk having lumps of green Jello in your pie.


This was awesome. However, everywhere it said lime, I substituted lemon. I made the best lemon cream pie! This recipe is super super easy.
