Truly Key Lime Pie Ice Cream


"I searched everywhere for a recipe like this on the 'net. Lots of looking but no success, so here's one I came up with. My family loves this, and it's much more versatile than the 'real thing'(I'm making it into popsicles next)!"

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, milk, and heavy cream. Cook until warm, whisking frequently. Once the mixture is hot to the touch, whisk in the gelatin mix and sugar, stirring constantly until sugar and gelatin are completely dissolved. Whisk in the egg yolks, and remove from the heat. Stir in the lime juice and lemon extract.
  2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. This recipe takes a bit longer to set up than the usual ice cream.
  3. Once the ice cream is thick, open the canister, and place large pieces of graham cracker evenly on each side. They will break into smaller pieces as the machine churns. Mix for about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a freezer container, seal, and freeze until solid. I like to use 1 gallon resealable freezer bags.

I had to freeze in two batches. I considered letting the mixture cool before putting in my ice cream freezer but was afraid of what the jello might do. That batch did not work out well. The s...

I was so hoping this recipe would be good. I wasted a lot of money to find out not so. First, this makes way too much. Why do so many ice cream recipes make so much? I don't even know where to f...

This is a terrific recipe. I used the amount of graham crackers called for and it came out wonderful. I think using more would have detracted from the flavor of the key lime. My family also rave...

One word - FABULOUS! Delicious recipe! I even added real Key lime juice in place of the regular lime juice. Had to use less as it is stronger though. :)

BRAVO! This recipe was outstanding. I made it for a large gathering and everyone said it was the best. Very refreshing. Note-it DOES take a long time to set up in a commercial ice cream freezer....

This is fabulous. I was worried it would taste like sherbet - yuck. But it has a rich creamy taste. Instead of the milk and heavy cream I used half and half. I had a little trouble with the ...

Very good recipe. The taste and texture is superb. I altered the recipe by tempering the egg yolks before adding them, and I used mini teddy-graham crackers instead of regular graham crackers....

This was WONDERFUL! I made it and took it to our ice cream social at church. It was gone before any other ice cream and I had about 12 people request the recipe! I used Graham Cracker cru...

Good recipe! I would just suggest adding lime zest into this mixture just to add a punch of real lime flavor. We also added a bit more graham crackers in for the crunch + contrast of taste and...

This recipe is hands down the BEST ice cream that I have ever had in my life. I am going to be making this a lot more.
