Scrumptious Sugar-Free Key Lime Pie

School’s out for the summer, and I’m back in the kitchen. So happy to have a break from coursework, and time to create another low carb recipe! Here in Florida, the summer heat has me craving cool, creamy desserts and icy treats to enjoy. Enter a sugar-free version of the official dessert of the state of Florida: Key Lime Pie!

This is not your momma’s key lime pie…

…or at least if my mother made key lime pie (she grew up in North Dakota), it wouldn’t be like this! There are no egg yolks or sweetened condensed milk to be found in this version. With all of the tart, sweet flavor and none of the sugar, this low carb key lime pie will remind you of the slices you’ve enjoyed in Florida seafood restaurants. The pie has a slightly different texture than the original, though, with its airy, almost mousse-like filling. I can promise you that you won’t miss the sweetened condensed milk after tasting this pie. 

I think you’ll really like this super easy gluten-free nut crust. It’s worth making the pie just for the crust alone!

Removing the eggs and using xanthan gum as the binder helps keep the texture nice and crisp. It’s a natural ingredient that tremendously improves the texture of gluten-free and low carb pastries.

The flavor from the blend of pecan meal and almond flour is phenomenal! If you’re having difficulty locating pecan meal, just swap it out for more blanched almond flour. Our local Publix in Southwest Florida has a whole section devoted to products from the George Pecan Co. Their pecan meal is really finely milled and fresh tasting. I use it more often than almond meal sometimes, since I have to grind almond meal myself. Pecans do have higher fat percentage than almond, so a one-for-one substitution of pecan meal for almond meal might not work well in all of your recipes.

Sugar-Free Key Lime Pie

Sugar-Free Key Lime Pie

Serves 8
A luscious key lime pie that’s sugar-free and every bit as good as the original version! It is naturally sweetened with stevia and erythritol to make it a low carb dessert. Any combination of sugar-free (or regular sugar) sweeteners should work in this pie.

For Crust
  1. 1 cup (4 ounces) blanched almond flour
  2. 1/2 cup (2 ounces) ground pecans OR blanched almond flour
  3. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1/8 teaspoon pure stevia powder
  5. 2 Tablespoons erythritol*, powdered
  6. 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  7. 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  8. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  9. 1/8 teaspoon salt
For Filling
  1. 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  2. 7 Tablespoons erythritol, powdered
  3. 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon pure stevia powder
  4. 1/2 cup key lime juice** (the bottled kind works well)
  5. 1/4 teaspoon finely minced lime zest
  6. 1 packet (2 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin
  7. 1 cup heavy cream
For Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whisk together almond flour, pecan meal (if using), cinnamon, stevia powder, and xanthan gum together in a bowl.
  3. Grind erythritol in a coffee grinder to powder it.
  4. Whisk powdered erythritol into the rest of the dry ingredients.
  5. Stir vanilla and salt into melted butter, and add it to the dry ingredients.
  6. Knead together dough with hands until everything is distributed evenly throughout the dough. The color of the dough will appear to be even throughout when its ready.
  7. Lightly grease a large glass pie dish with butter.
  8. Press dough into dish in the shape of a crust, trying to make sure that the thickness is the same all over the pie dish.
  9. Poke holes with a fork all over the crust so to ensure that air pockets don’t form while it’s baking. Bake crust for 14-15 minutes. The crust is done once the edges have barely browned. Check the crust a couple of times while it is baking to see if bubbles form. Should you see air pockets rising under the crust, open the oven door, and gently prick those areas with your fork.
  10. Place dish on a cooling rack to cool, and wait at least 2 hours for crust to dry out and reach room temperature. You can cover the crust with plastic wrap, and store it in the refrigerator overnight if you’d like to prepare the filling the next day.
For Filling
  1. Set cream cheese out on the countertop for 2 hours to reach room temperature.
  2. Beat cream cheese with a mixer until smooth and free of lumps.
  3. Powder erythritol in coffee grinder.
  4. Stir erythritol and 1/4 tsp. stevia into cream cheese, then beat with mixer for 2-3 minutes on high speed to ensure erythritol has dissolved and texture is smooth.
  5. Refrigerate mixture while you perform the next step.
  6. Heat key lime juice, covered, in microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
  7. Add lime zest to hot key lime juice.
  8. Whisk gelatin into key lime juice until it has completely dissolved.
  9. Let mixture cool for 5-10 minutes, or until no longer hot to the touch.
  10. Stir key lime juice mixture into cream cheese mixture. You want the gelatin to start thickening as it cools down. Look for a pudding-like texture as you are stirring the cream cheese mixture around the bowl. If it is not thickening, make an ice bath with another bowl filled with ice and water. Set bowl with cream cheese mixture over the ice bath (making sure water doesn’t get into cream cheese mixture!) and stir the cream cheese mixture around bottom of bowl with a spatula. Do this for a couple of minutes until the mixture thickens to a pudding-like consistency and is cool to the touch. Remove bowl with cooled cream cheese mixture from ice bath, and set aside.
  11. In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream and 1/8 tsp. stevia until stiff peaks form.
  12. Use spatula to fold a dollop of whipped cream mixture into cream cheese mixture, and stir it around a bit. Fold the rest of the whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until texture is fairly even.
  13. Scrape filling into pie crust and refrigerate, uncovered, for 3-4 hours. Texture will be firm enough to cut pie into clean slices.
  14. Garnish pie with homemade whipped cream if desired. Pie will keep refrigerated for 3 days. If you don’t mind a few extra carbs, you can just use canned whipped cream to garnish the pie.
Notes
  1. *You can use any granular sweetener in place of the erythritol. Just taste the dough and filling to make sure they are sufficiently sweet, and make adjustments!
  2. **Bottled Key Lime Juice is sold in most grocery stores.

    I used to think apple pie was my favorite, but that was before I discovered the coconut cream pie at our local Brazilian steakhouse. It's almost more of a coconut cheesecake, heavy and rich. I made a version with a nut crust, and it came out great!

    I'd be happy with either–I have stevia but one can always use more. However, I don't want to leave my email address on a public forum, so I guess I won't be getting either (Too bad it's not an option to make it available to just the blog owner.)

    Yum! I was actually just thinking of something similar…have you ever had the Tempt brand of hemp milk frozen dessert? My favorite is the coconut lime and I was just thinking yesterday if I could tweak one of your ice cream recipes to make my own low carb version of it…but key lime pie sounds awesome! I don't eat pie much at all, but I like key lime and coconut or banana cream the once in a blue moon when I do have it.

    I have tons of stevia, but no xanthum gum so that would be my pick!

    My email is alex00inwonderland@gmail.com

    PS: Everything I have made from your blog has been mouth-wateringly delicious, and way better than the ordinary carbed/sugared up "regular" versions! I am cooking my way through everything on your blog! So excited to see a new post…thanks so much for all your hard work!

I love cheesecake and have yet to find a recipe that I can do (I'm slightly all thumbs in the kitchen) which is really low carb and tastes like cheesecake and not cream cheese cake, which is how most of them turn out. Its so depressing that I have zero energy left for trying new recipes. Do you have a perfect tasting cheesecake recipe that wont depress me further? LOL

    So happy to have you post another recipe. I just finished up another bean cake of yours. I'll get some lime juice tomorrow… can't wait to try the lime pie.

    My favorite pie is blueberry!

    Aww, pies aren't really a big thing here in Norway, so I don't have a favourite. Would love to try out the deliciouis lime pie you mention in this blog though! But I do lack that xanthan gum (not even sure I can get hold of it here …) and would be a very happy winner of the giveaway if I was to be so lucky! (I already have stevia powder.) I just found your blog and will dive into older posts as soon as my hubby and I have established ourselves in another city here in Norway. (Changing jobs and hence also geography.) I really need to eat less soy, carbs, gluten and sugar! *sigh*

    Keep up your wonderful work!!

    It's a tie between coconut cream pie and applie pie. Peacan is good too. Hell I like em all hence the need for dieting.

    My favorite is blackberry cobbler made like a pie. However, I have not tried the chocolate peanut butter pie on your site yet…

    I love your blog! I can't wait to try this! My kids are excited too because now my low carb desserts are actually good since I found your site! They used to whine and ask… Is this low carb?

    My favorite pie is and always will be key lime pie, so I can't wait to try your recipe.

    I have to say that your blog has been my go-to for tasty recipes. I took six summer classes to finish up my associates degree this summer and just did my last Public Speaking course speech on your low carb chocolate cake recipe (I made it into cupcakes). I used 8 egg whites and 1 egg instead of 5 eggs –also used the swiss meranigue buttercream recipe instead of the chocolate icing one and it was a SMASH. I did the speech yesterday and even still today two people from the class complemented me out of the blue for how great the cupcakes tasted and one said they were going to use the recipe themselves. Thank you Lauren for all your recipes. I just tried the pizza recipe today and it was AWESOME.

    Your recipes are always fantastic! Just wish I could eat them, as I get anaphylaxis from eggs and anything with a shell (yeah, it sucks, as a lot of LC recipes are ruled out for me).

    My dream recipe from you would be custard tart. They're little individual tarts, with custard, and I adore them.

    I know you probably won't read this, but if you do, custard tart, please? They're not pies, though, but they're close!

    (Egg-free, pretty please with stevia on top?)

    Hello Lauren, Thank You for your wonderful recipes! I have a question regarding erythritol quantities (granulated/powdered). Here in Germany I buy erythritol (Sukrin® Melis) which comes already powdered… and I noticed that your quantities are always given for granulated erythritol. Do you know the conversion/equivalence? Do you think 1 tbsp granulated erythritol would make aprox. 1 tsp powdered or so? Thanks in advance + best regards from Germany! Adriana

    I love key lime pie, and plan to try this dessert very soon! I would like to enter your drawing. I have xanthan gum, but would be delighted to win the stevia. Thanks. :)
