The magic to this sugar-free, low-carb pie is in the monk fruit sweeteners! We're using Lakanto  Powdered  Sweetener in the filling and Lakanto Classic Sweetener in the no-bake, gluten-free crust. Once ready to serve, garnish with whipped topping and key lime slices to your liking.


No-Bake Crust

2 cups almond flour (we used blanched, but unblanched also works)

¼ cup Lakanto Classic Sweetener

¼ tsp cinnamon

6 Tbsp butter, melted

Pie Filling

16 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 ¼ cups Lakanto Powdered Sweetener

⅓ cup fresh key lime juice (or regular limes)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp lime zest (more if you prefer a stronger lime flavor)

1 cup heavy whipping cream


Whipped Topping

½ cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup Lakanto Powdered Sweetener

Lime slices to garnish top

How to Make Sugar-Free Key Lime Pie & Crust

  1. To prepare the crust, combine all the crust ingredients (almond flour, Lakanto Classic Sweetener, ground cinnamon, and melted butter) in a bowl. Stir until well mixed. Press evenly into a 9 inch pie dish.  Place in the refrigerator to chill while the filling is prepared. (see instructions in notes to bake this pie crust)

  2. To prepare the filling, place the cream cheese in a medium sized mixing bowl.  Using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. 

  3. Add in Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener, lime juice, vanilla extract, and zest.  Mix until smooth.  

  4. In another mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

  5. Next, fold in the whipped heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture until incorporated.

  6. Remove chilled pie crust from fridge and pour the filling into it. If needed, use a spoon to smooth the filling. 

  7. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until it is set.

  8. Whipped topping: mix the whipped topping before serving by mixing the ingredients until stiff peaks form.

     9.  Enjoy your pie served with whipped topping!

How to Store the Pie


Fridge: keep this key lime pie stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 1 week.
