Key Lime Pie Paletas

Growing up, I would drink condensed milk straight out of the can. Love the stuff. Here’s my recipe for key lime pie popsicles. You also can use regular limes or Meyer lemons when in season instead of key limes. 


14-16 key lime for  about ½ cup of lime juice 

3-4 teaspoons lime zest 

¾ cup sweetened condensed milk

1 cup half-and-half 

A pinch of salt 

3 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers

Recipe directions: 

Zest the limes. Then juice the limes. In a small pot, pour in condensed milk and half-and-half. Stir over medium heat until just about to boil. Remove from heat. Stir in salt and allow to cool to room temperature. Drizzle in lime juice, mix well, then taste. Add more lime juice if you prefer it even more tart. Stir in the zest and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for six to eight hours or until completely frozen. Dip in warm water for 10 seconds to unmold each popsicle. Before serving, sprinkle generously each side of the popsicle with crushed graham crackers. Makes 8.
