No-Bake Key Lime Parfaits

Like key lime pie in a jar, these fun, individual desserts are a treat any day of the week since you can prep them in 15 minutes and then take just an hour or two to set up in the fridge. Key limes are seasonal and can be difficult to find when the craving for these strikes. Substitute regular limes with a little bit of their zest, about a scant teaspoon, for added flavor when key limes are scarce.

Servings 6

Ingredients
 

  • ¾ cup key lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • 14- ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 11 graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter

Instructions
 

  • In a food processor, grind the graham crackers and sugar until you have fine crumbs. Add the butter and pulse to combine. Set aside.
  • Whisk the lime juice and sweetened condensed milk in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl using electric beaters, or using a stand mixer, whip the cream to soft peaks. Gently fold 1/3 of the cream into the condensed milk mixture, then fold in the remaining cream.
  • Place 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs on the bottoms of each of 8 small mason jars or glasses and press down to compact. Top with about an inch of the cream filling, and then another tablespoon of the graham cracker. Top with another inch or so of the cream mixture, then sprinkle a little graham on top for garnish. Refrigerate for 2 hours, and up to 8.

Notes

  • If you don’t have key limes, you can substitute the juice of regular limes, however, also add to it 1 tablespoon of lime zest to amp up the flavor.
