Why This Recipe Works

- My homemade mocktail tastes just like key lime pie, although it is much lighter and actually refreshing.

- If you are a big pie fan, like me, and want to enjoy this mocktail with a slice of actual pie, you have to check out my Homemade Grain Free Pie Crust. It is so simple to make!
- Coconut milk-This is what gives the drink the creamy pie like flavor. I like the coconut milk because it is nice and light.
- Limes-The limes are what makes this drink! I always prefer fresh juice over store bought. If you do buy store bought, make sure there are not any added sugars.
- Pineapple juice-This is what sweetens this drink. You can obviously make your own with a juicer, or you can buy organic pineapple juice. Just make sure nothing funky is added to it.

Step By Step Instructions
Fun Citrus Treats To Pair With
- Healthy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
- Gluten Free Lemon Bars
- Gluten Free Raspberry Lemon Muffins
- Vegan No Bake Cherry Lime Cheesecake
- A large cocktail mixer- While this is not a must, it makes it easier to mix the mocktail!
- Citrus juicer-If you are using fresh limes this will make it so much easier to juice them!
- Tip #1: Make sure your limes are ripe! The best way to tell if your limes are ripe is by the texture. They should be somewhat soft. If you leave limes sit out on your counter it will help them ripen faster.
- Tip #2: The sugar rim is what makes this drink! Do not skip this step.
Yes! However, be sure to wait to mix it with ice and add the garnish until you are ready to drink it.
I love pure pineapple juice that comes in a can. Make sure whatever kind you buy is free of any additives.
This drink is perfect for bridal showers, baby showers or just a girls tea part and brunch!
