Key Lime Pie *without* sweetened condensed milk?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a craving for Key Lime Pie, but can't find any recipes that don't use canned sweetened condensed milk - which I'd prefer to avoid since I'm trying to avoid processed foods as much as possible.

Does anyone have a recipe that doesn't use the condensed milk?

Or should I just make my own sweetened condensed milk? Is that even a possibility?

I just made two key lime pies the other day with coconut milk! They were delish

I used the recipe from here: http://allergickid.blogspot.com/2008...-lime-pie.html

But if you want to use eggs nstead of egg replacer like I did, just use two eggs and two egg whites. Super yum!

We'll try the coconut milk one too. We tried making a key lime pie with tofu a few months ago and it just tasted like tofu pie. Bleah. (I have made an awesome tofu chocolate pie however.)

Thanks!

I'm trying to avoid unfermented soy due to thyroid issues, hence my search for coconut based recipes. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Another option - just make lime curd as the filling. It's the same as lemon curd, but use (key) lime juice & zest instead of lemon. After you make the curd, put in the prepared (pre-baked) crust, bake for ~10 min just to set it, cool, and top with whipped cream.

My MIL makes hers from sweetened whipped cream with fresh key lime juice, nothing else. It is very light and fluffy, not s usual key lime pie, but tasty for a lighter dessert.

I also used coconut milk when I used it, and gelatin, so it would set up without eggs (my DS can't have eggs). Wish I could find my recipe!

I'm thinking that I'm going to need to pick up some more limes!

Thanks everyone!
