Mini Key Lime Bites – 2 ingredient dessert
These Mini Key Lime Bites are the perfect, refreshing, summer dessert. With only 2 ingredients and no baking required, they are simply delicious.
I’m not a baker. I love desserts but don’t have the patience to precisely measure ingredients or wait for items to fully bake. My brownies always come out semi-raw and I eat most of the cookie dough before I get around to actually baking off the cookies.
So when The Recipe Redux challenged it’s members this month to share a healthy version of small bites desserts in honor of their birthday, I knew I had my work cut out for me.
I love creating (and eating!) small bites for desserts because they allow for sweet treats in moderation. There is something just so satisfying about having a few spoon/forkfuls of a decadent dessert and then being done. No sugar high afterwards or feeling sick to your stomach.
These Mini Key Lime Bites were created on a day when it was 105 degrees outside. There was no way I wanted to turn on the oven! As a result, they don’t require any baking.
This may be the world’s simplest dessert. Are you ready for the list of ingredients –
- Mini Graham Cracker Crusts (pre-made)
- Key Lime flavored yogurt (I used Fage brand)
That’s it. Can you believe it?
Want to know my favorite part of this dessert? Surprisingly, it’s not that it’s no bake, not even the 2 ingredient list. It’s that fact that both of my kids devoured this dessert! They didn’t complain or ask for another snack five minutes later . They licked their fingers and asked if we had more for tomorrow. That’s what I call a recipe win. The last time they did that was when we made a big batch of this Coconut and Chocolate Ice Cream from Erika’s Gluten Free Kitchen. Talk about a delicious dessert that also doesn’t require any baking!
