If you love Key Lime Pie, you’ll love these fresh and creamy Key Lime Pie Truffles.
A slightly more portable take on Key Lime Pie than our Key Lime Bars, this Key Lime Truffle Recipe is a wonderfully easy, no-bake dessert for picnics and parties, or a quick sweet snack.
We love this recipe for alfresco summer parties and beach picnics.
A Healthier Key Lime Truffle Recipe
So easy to make, this recipe is also a slightly healthier version than most Key Lime Pie Truffle recipes, but no less delicious. These creamy truffles are full of fresh and zesty summer flavours, but don’t rely on Graham Cracker crumbs, heavy cream, chocolate or butter. Cream cheese sets the creamy base, and crushed nuts and coconut add the texture. You can even substitute powdered sugar for powdered monk fruit if you want a naturally sweet alternative.
Recipe Tips and Variations
- Adjust the sugar and lime to your preferred sweetness and tanginess.
- For a healthier alternative, you can replace powdered sugar with powdered monk fruit.
- You can substitute finely shredded coconut for desiccated coconut. However, shredded coconut may absorb less moisture, in which case, you may need to add one or two more tablespoons of coconut. If you use shredded coconut, you can use a blender to achieve a finer texture.
- You can replace ground walnuts with almond flour. Almond flour will absorb more moisture than freshly ground nuts, so you may use less.
- You can make these truffles in advance as they will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to five days.
Can I Substitute Key Limes with Normal Limes?
Yes, you can. The difference between normal limes and Key Limes is minimal. Key Limes are smaller, a little more tart and more aromatic, but using normal limes will not change the recipe.
