Frozen Key Lime Pie

Here before you is one of the most delicious desserts and tops my list as my favorite summertime treat. I love it! And my husband knew that so he made it for me for Mother’s Day.

The recipe is from my Aunt Marilyn, who you should know by now does not fail me in her recommendations.

It is light and tart and sweet and absolutely divine. I could eat it every night for the rest of my life. And as soon as I publish this here post, I am about to go devour the rest in the freezer.

Oh, by the way, the reason my pie looks sickly green (instead of vibrant and beautiful!) is because my husband had to substitute the zesty lemon sorbet (since our grocery store didn’t carry it – boo!) with passion fruit sorbet and it turned the ice cream filling brown (very bad!) so he doused it with some green food coloring.

Normally, the pie looks more healthy green than fake green. 🙂 Delicious, nonetheless!
