You only need 5 simple ingredients for no bake key lime pie. You can find them in your local grocery store or online.

  • Box lime Jell-o gelatin — 3oz
  • Boiling water
  • Key lime pie yogurt — regular yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • Cool Whip — thawed
  • Graham cracker pie crust — premade crust

Note — I used 2 containers of Chobani yogurt, 5.3 ounces each. If you use a different brand, you may have slightly more or less

How to Make No Bake Key Lime Pie

First, heat the water until it starts to boil. Then, and add the lime Jello gelatin powder to a large bowl.

Pour the hot water over the gelatin, and whisk the water and Jello for about 2 minutes or until the gelatin is dissolved.

Next, stir in the key lime yogurt, and mix well. Finally, stir the Cool Whip into the Jello mixture until completely blended.

The pie filling should be light green and thick.

Pour the key lime pie filling into the prepared graham cracker crust. Use a spatula to spread the filling evenly in the pie shell.

Then, smooth the top of the pie so it’s nice and even.

Chilling Time

Place the pie into the refrigerator and allow to chill for 4 hours. If you have time, chilling the pie overnight is even better.

This lets the pie set up and makes getting perfect slices of pie easier!

I love to garnish this key lime pie with whipped cream and fresh lime slices. I used regular limes, but actual key limes would be the perfect touch!

This isn’t necessary, but it makes for an impressive presentation.

If you don’t want to make homemade whipped cream, add dollops of Cool Whip to the pie slices before serving if you like!

How to Store

Store this no-bake key lime pie covered or in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

It will last 3 to 4 days — if you can resist it that long!


There are a few ways to customize this key lime no-bake pie to your liking.

I like to keep this a super easy pie, but if you want you can make your own graham cracker crust instead of using a premade one.

Top your key lime pie with a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped topping. You can even make your own whipped cream with heavy cream, vanilla, and sugar.

If you have fresh key limes, Persian limes, or regular limes, top the pie with lime slices or lime zest. Graham cracker crumbs are a great option too.

For extra flavor, add lime juice to the key lime pie filling mixture.

You don’t actually need Jello for a no-bake pie. Just mix key lime yogurt and Cool Whip. You will need to keep this version of the pie frozen though, because there is no gelatin to keep it thick.

If you can’t find key lime yogurt, plain yogurt or any other flavor will work just as well with key lime gelatin. Feel free to get creative with both Jell-O flavors and yogurt flavors here!
