Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie

Hold your hats as I prepare to announce our most recent and mind shattering recipe, Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie. It’s so incredible, you may want to make TWO. Of course, if you want to add a little variety to your vegan desserts, I happen to have a thing for pies, so you could also check out our Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie or our Vegan Chocolate Pie. It’s all good. Seriously! Vegan Key Lime Pie is just sweet enough, but slightly tart too, letting the flavor of the key limes ring through! This is a vegan treat which means it's egg-free and dairy-free. Perfect for those with allergies! I grew up in a small town in Missouri. We didn’t eat a lot of key lime pie when I was a kid. To be honest, it just wasn’t something anyone thought of. I mean, who ever came up with the idea of adding lime to a pie? It just seems weird. Don’t you think?

Well, whoever came up with the idea, I’m sure glad they did, because it’s delicious!

I don’t know how old I was when I tried key lime pie for the first time, but I liked it.

That said, I didn’t think I’d be enjoying Key Lime Pie anymore, because, you know, dairy. I don’t eat the stuff. It’s a combination of being lactose intolerant and vegan. But now I’ve discovered a way to make this favorite dessert dairy-free!

What You’ll Love about Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie

There’s something about combining tart and sweet that cannot be denied. It’s such a subtle sweetness which is my new favorite thing in life. I think you’ll love it too!

So combining the tartness of the key limes, with the subtle sweetness of this recipe is just not enough to make this dessert noteworthy. We have to add a little crunchy from the graham cracker crust and some creaminess too. It’s the combination of all of this that makes this recipe one you’ll come back for time and time again!

If you’re into crunchy crusts, sweet and creamy (with a little bit of tartness to boot), you’re gonna love this Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie! We are in love with this easy Vegan Key Lime Pie recipe! One thing that makes this Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie recipe so delicious is the Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt. I really didn’t know there was a yogurt alternative for vegans until Silk.

To be completely honest, I wasn’t a big fan of cow-dairy yogurt anyway (maybe it was that lactose intolerant thing). I tried it and it just didn’t do it for me. However, I’m addicted to vegan yogurt. I love serving it up with some fresh fruit for breakfast. And now I’m adding vegan yogurt to everything I can think of, including key lime pie recipes. 🙂

I love using Silk’s dairy-free products because they add a rich, creamy flavor to my vegan recipes. Today I’m using the Dairy-free Vanilla Yogurt It boasts 6 grams of plant power protein in every serving! It also offers live, active cultures combined with calcium and vitamin D. oIt’s also free of dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg, peanut, and MSG. It doesn’t have any artificial colors or flavorings. And it’s certified by the Non-GMO product verification process. If you want to learn more about Silk’s dairy-free products, sign up for the Silk Newsletter.

  1. I love Key Lime Pie and what a dream to be able to make it Vegan!

  2. Is there a substitute for tofu, it’s not that I don’t like it, but recently found out I am allergic to soy, as well as dairy and wheat. I use a lot of vegan substitutes like Daiya cream cheese and So Delicious dairy free coconut milk yogurt. I would buy more Silk if it wasn’t mostly soy products.

    • Hi Arianne. Sorry to hear about your soy allergy. This recipe might be difficult to make soy-free. If I were going to try it, I would probably add a cup of soaked and drained cashews and coconut milk yogurt. Blend that with everything else until it’s very smooth. I can’t guarantee that will set as firmly as the one above, but it should taste pretty good. Let me know how it goes!

  3. I bet basil leaves instead of spinach leaves would be even better

    • Hi Wendy! Well, the thing I like about spinach leaves is it adds a little color without impacting the flavor of the pie. The basil would definitely add some flavor. I can’t decide if I would like that or not, but it would definitely be fun to try it! Let me know how it goes!

      I love key lime pie,but where do l get the agar flakes and vegan produce?

    • You can buy agar agar flakes at most health food stores. I bought mine at Natural Grocers and it can be found in the Asian section. The other products, like the vegan cream cheese and vegan yogurt, can be purchased at health food stores, but I also find it in the health food section of our grocery store.

    • I Ike your recipes gives me some new ideas.Thanks.

    • Ideas = awesome! <3

  4. Mian Helaly

    What is the fat content ? Since you are using coconut oil , what is the cholesterol level in the pie?

  5. I can’t wait. I’m going to make this tomorrow. I found key limes today for the first time in years!
