I live for no bake desserts in the summer. I have said that before, and shared a TON of different recipes here on the blog over the years. No Bake Kool-Aid Pie might be my son’s favorite. He can even make that one himself. No Bake Oreo Cheesecake might be more my speed though.

My husband’s all time favorite pie is key lime pie. But sometimes you just don’t want to turn on the oven. Even if the pie is only 3 ingredients and super easy to make. So why not an ice box cake?

Strawberry Cheesecake Lasagna was such a big hit earlier this summer, I used that as the base for this key lime pie ice box cake. Have you ever made an ice box cake before? It is a layered dessert that uses graham crackers as the “cake” portion. The creamy layers soften the graham crackers, so it cuts and tastes like you are eating cake!

We have had a crazy hot summer here, so I am avoiding my oven at all costs. This key lime pie ice box cake is super refreshing, creamy, and the perfect thing to beat the heat. I served this to a couple different groups of friends, and everyone raved about it. If you know anyone who likes key lime pie, you have to make this for them. They will be so impressed!

My husband doesn’t always love an ice box cake. I can’t figure out why, they just aren’t his favorite. But I completely won him over with this one. There was enough key lime flavor, which he often thinks key lime desserts are lacking. Plus the homemade whipped cream. It was enough to convert him!

If you are looking for even more no bake desserts (or almost no bake) you have to try these Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Bars. They have been eyeing me for a long time, you just have to bake the crust. So they are on my must make list this week. Or check out this No Bake Oreo Ice Box Cake – such a pretty way to serve it! Or jump on the unicorn train! These No Bake Rainbow Unicorn Cheesecake Bars look so fun!
