Sweet & Tart Key Lime Pie Dip (Made With Greek Yogurt)

I’m daydreaming of warmer weather and the sunshine state with this creamy, tart and sweet Key Lime Pie Dip recipe. Inspired by one of our favorite vacation destinations, Key West, it’s a fumble-free version of the famous pie that everyone loves.

Make it for a spring or summer gathering. It comes together quickly and then just serve it with vanilla wafers or graham crackers. 

This refreshing key lime pie dip recipe is an easy spring or summer dessert. It's made with greek yogurt, fresh lime, cream cheese and lime zest. Serve it with graham crackers for party guests!

Enjoy this dip for a spring or summer gathering, or even poolside. It does have cream cheese in it, so you want to keep it cool over ice if you’re serving outside. I’ve made it for BBQ’s and just added a layer of ice in-between the inner and outer bowls. 

When you serve it with honey graham crackers, you really get a sense of the traditional pie crust. However, vanilla wafers or shortbread is another alternative. Kids even like this dessert dip recipe and it’s an excellent alternative to chocolate options. I like that it’s light and not too sweet.

How To Make Key Lime Pie Dessert Dip

Everyone loves an easy recipe and this is one of my favorites. It’s sweet and tangy, without all of the effort of making a whole pie! To make your dip, you’re going to need an electric hand mixer to blend all of the ingredients until smooth. The electric mixer makes the recipe super simple!

When To Serve Key Lime Pie Dip

The flavors of this dessert dip are perfect for the warm spring and summer months. It has a great sweet and tart flavor. Serve it as the centerpiece to a big dessert board or serve it by itself, as a snack, with plenty of dippers to pick from.

I’ll make this dip for BBQ’s, potlucks, neighborhood gatherings and pool parties. It’s an unexpected dessert dip that people rave about. I’m always giving out this recipe!

What To Serve With Key Lime Pie Dip

Graham crackers are the natural choice to serve with the dip. They add the flavor of the traditional graham cracker crust! However, you can get creative. Vanilla Oreos, vanilla wafers and chocolate-covered graham crackers are fun to serve with the dip. I always add vanilla wafers and graham crackers as a choice for my guests.

How To Serve The Dip At Parties

This is such a great dip for parties, but the dip has to be kept on ice. It has dairy in it and it’s important to keep it chilled, especially if you’re outside. An Ice Chilled Dip Bowl is great if you aren’t going to eat it immediately and it’s just around for people to nosh on.

Keep the Key Lime Pie Dip refrigerated for several hours before serving, if you make the dip ahead of time. Add the garnish right before serving.

How To Store Leftover Dip

If you have any leftovers, transfer the dip to an airtight food storage container. This will help keep moisture away from the dip. For best freshness, enjoy the dip within 5-7 days of making it. You might need to add more garnish again to refresh the dip before serving.

Do not freeze the dip! This Key Lime Pie Dip doesn’t freeze well. It changes the texture of the dip. Instead of freezing it, go ahead and make an entirely new batch – since it only takes a few minutes anyways!

Recipe Substitutions

Feel free to use full fat or fat-free yogurt and cream cheese. The sweetened condensed milk CANNOT be substituted for evaporated milk. The two have very difference consistencies and your dip will not be the same.

What You Need From The Grocery Store:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Limes
  • Dippers For Sides: Graham Crackers, Vanilla Wafers or Cookies

Directions To Make This Key Lime Pie Dip Recipe
