Gluten Free Mango Key Lime Pie {Recipe}

Summer is right around the corner and this dessert is the perfect addition to your summer recipe repertoire. Key West is one of my very favorite places. In fact I fell in love with my husband in Key West. Another thing I love is Key Lime Pie. Being gluten free I feel like I am occasionally missing out on things. With a simple modification, this recipe is now gluten free and completely delicious. Use regular graham crackers for a standard version. This crust is also great for cheesecakes too, but it is a little more crumbly than one made with standard graham crackers.


2 packages of Annie's Gluten Free Bunny Cookies (will take about 1 1/2 packages to get 2 cups of crumbs)
2 cups of cookie crumbs from the Annie's Bunny Cookies
6 tablespoons butter - melted
4 tablespoons sugar

Pie Filling

1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks (save whites for breakfast)
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese - softened
1/2 cup Key Lime Juice (Measure a little under the 1/2 cup mark)
3 Tablespoons Mango Nectar


For Graham Cracker Crust
In a bowl mix graham cracker crumbs with sugar. With a fork stir mixture as you drizzle melted butter into bowl. Once butter is evenly distributed into crumb mixture pour into a pie pan. (I used a 9 1/2 inch glass pie pan). Press firmly to entire pie pan surface. I like using a measuring cup but you can use a fork or fingers too. Bake in a 350° oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside until you are ready to add pie filling. 

For Pie Filling
Mix cream cheese in a stand mixer until smooth. Add Sweetened condensed milk and eggs. Add mango nectar to a measuring cup then fill up to the 1/2 cup mark with key lime juice. Mix until fully combined. Pour into graham cracker crust and bake in a 350° oven for 15 minutes.

Cool for a few minutes and then refrigerate for a few hours or until fully chilled. Serve with slices of lime and whipped cream (and maybe some fresh mint if you have it on hand too). 



  1. Looks delicious! My mom loves key lime pie, I might try this for Mother's Day.
