Key Lime Pie FAQs
Can You Substitute Key Limes with Regular Lime Juice?
The difference between regular lime and Key Limes (also known as Mexican or West Indian limes) is that Key Limes are very aromatic with a more tangy-sweet taste compared to limes. And while key lime juice has a stronger, more intense and aromatic flavour, using regular lime juice in a Key Lime recipe is fine as they are pretty close.
