No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie


No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIE

  1. Try using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.
  2. For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.
  3. I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!
  4. You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great make ahead dessert.
