Key Lime Colada - Key West's Take on a Pina Colada

Key Lime Colada cocktail is a Florida Keys take on the Pina Colada. An easy-to-make frozen treat with the tartness of key limes, the sweetness of pineapple, and the creaminess of coconut. Pure summertime refreshment!

I am so a Florida Keys girl! There is nothing I like better than a vacation in the Keys. And my favorite spot to plant myself for a week (although wishing for 2 or 3) has got to be Key West.

Luckily we live just 1-½ hours north of the closest key, Key Largo, and go down there for long weekends whenever possible, the rest of the time we trek all the way down, 90 miles from Cuba, to our laid back paradise of Key West.

It's still in the continental US but feels just like the Caribbean. (so wishing I was there!)

One of the first things I always order when arriving is a delicious frozen concoction, similar to a piña colada , called a Key Lime Colada. The first one I ever had was at Rick's Tree Bar on Duval and I instantly fell in love with the tartness of the key lime, the slightly creamy base, the hint of orange, and the ice cold coolness of the cocktail.

Whenever I make this refreshing drink at home it reminds me our vacations there, the soft breezes, swaying palm trees, music floating on the air, key lime pie (of course) and all the fabulous times along Duval Street.

Rick's Tree Bar wouldn't divulge their recipe but, after some experimentation, I made one that was pretty darn close. And I sure had a fun time trying! (where did the weekend go anyway?) Keepin' it cool!

Why You'll Love Piña Colada Pie

  • It's so easy! I used a premade graham cracker pie crust, that doesn't even require baking. The one thing you do need to allow time for is setting. I recommend making this pie a day in advance so it can chill in the fridge overnight. If that's not a possibility make it in the morning for an after dinner treat.
  • Full of tropical flavors! To really on the coconut the filling combines coconut cream as well as toasted coconut to add more flavor and texture. Crushed pineapple is used rather than juice or pineapple chunks. This means that you will get a hit of pineapple in every bite.

If you like pina colada&rsquos..and getting caught in the rain&hellip

I&rsquom not a huge fan of Pina Colada&rsquos but when you add the extra lime juice and lime liqueur &ndash it not only makes it taste like a key lime pie &ndash but there&rsquos also a little more alcohol in there.

Every time I go down to Key Largo, I stop in at Skipper&rsquos Dockside and have one (or 2) of these!

Key Lime-Coconut Pie

4 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons grated Key lime zest
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
8 whole graham crackers, broken into pieces
1/4 cup sweetened coconut
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Coconut Whipped Cream:
1 1/2 cups very cold whipping cream
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut cream (recommended: Coco Lopez)
2 heaping tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
1/2 cup sweetened coconut, lightly toasted, for garnish

For the pie: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Whisk together the yolks, zest, condensed milk, lime juice, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and thickened, about 2 minutes. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Combine the graham crackers, coconut, and sugar in a food processor and process into fine crumbs. Add the butter and process until the mixture just comes together. Pat onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch glass pie plate. Place on a baking sheet and bake until lightly golden brown and firm, about 10 minutes.

Add the thickened filling to the warm crust, return to the oven, and bake the pie until the center is firm but jiggles slightly when shaken, about 15 minutes. Remove and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Cover the surface and refrigerate until chilled and set, about 3 hours.

For the whipped cream: Combine the whipping cream, coconut cream, sugar, and vanilla bean seeds in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and whip until soft peaks form.

To serve: Mound the coconut whipped cream on top and sprinkle with toasted coconut.

Frozen Pina Colada Pie

I am forever on the hunt for fresh and easy summer desserts. With a sweet tooth that never gets satisfied I always seem to crave desserts. Something light and refreshing is the go-to in the summer months. Plus who wants to be in the kitchen baking all day? For Kent&rsquos Birthday i thought I would try an adaptation of a fun recipe from last summer. I made a Frozen Margarita Pie that was a huge hit. So 2017 has been the summer of Pina Colada for us so it seemed a natural leap to go in that Pie direction.

Pina Colada Pie

Light, refreshing, sweet it was hitting all of the Pro&rsquos on my list and none of the con&rsquos. This is a simple dessert that requires no baking.

It is one of the easiest pies you can ever make, five ingredients that come together in a simple and easy dessert. Perfect for Summer BBQ&rsquos, Picnic get togethers or just for a special weeknight dessert. Similar to Key Lime Pie but more Chic.

If you prefer to make your own graham crust you can but I find it far more convenient to buy an already made crust. For this one I actually went with the Kebler Shortbread crust.

Recipe Summary

  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon rum flavored extract
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • ½ cup maraschino cherries, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Spread coconut evenly onto a baking sheet and toast in preheated oven 5 minutes, until golden brown. Remove and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together vanilla wafer crumbs and melted butter or margarine. Press firmly into bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese and coconut cream until fluffy. Mix in rum extract. Fold in whipped topping, pineapple, cherries, and nuts. Spread mixture into crust. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Chill several hours before serving.

Frozen Pina Colada Pie

This is the perfect summer dessert. The taste of a refreshing pina colada in a creamy slice of pie.


  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 can Sweetened, Condensed Milk - 14-ounce Can
  • ½ cups Pineapple Juice
  • ½ cups Shredded Coconut
  • ½ cups Crushed Pineapple, Drained
  • 3 cups Whipped Topping, Divided
  • 1 whole Graham Cracker Pie Crust (9-inch Size) Or Your Favorite Recipe
  • Optional Garnishes: Toasted Coconut, Chocolate Shavings Or Nuts


Combine cream cheese, milk & pineapple juice and beat until thoroughly mixed.

Fold in coconut, crushed pineapple, & 1½ cups of the whipped topping. Pour mixture into pie shell. Freeze until firm.

Once it’s firm, top with remaining Cool Whip. If desired garnish with toasted coconut, chocolate shavings or nuts. Return to freezer for at least 8 hours. Let stand ½ hour before serving.

* Tip: Buy the large can of crushed pineapples and you can use the juice from the can.

**Keebler now makes a larger graham cracker crust pie shell. This recipe makes enough to fill a large 9 inch pie shell, if using a smaller store bought pie shell, you will have more than enough to fill the pie shell – you can freeze remaining filling in a container for a treat later!!

Easy Key Lime Pie

This is the Mr.&rsquos favorite dessert: key lime pie.

What does this key lime pie taste like?

It&rsquos creamy, sweet and tart all in one bite. I like it topped with whipped cream. It&rsquos so rich that the whipped cream helps lighten it up.

Do you have to bake key lime pie?

Not this version. This recipe does not call for eggs so there&rsquos no need to bake anything but the crust. However, you can get away with not baking the crust if you don&rsquot mind it being a little crumbly or you can use a ready-made graham cracker crust. When you bake the crust you&rsquore essentially melting the sugar to make ti stick together. So you could actually just press it into a glass pie pan, and then microwave it for about a minute and it would work just fine and hold together nicely.

So skip the baking, and make this a no-bake key lime pie which is just perfect for summer.

Good news: classic key lime pie is really easy to make.

For such complex flavors, this pie is actually really easy to make homemade. You can buy a ready-made graham cracker crust, or if you have some graham crackers laying around, it&rsquos not hard to make your own crust. The magic happens in the middle so the crust isn&rsquot as important.

What I really enjoy about this and what I consider the &ldquosecret&rdquo ingredient is the sour cream. It really compliments and enhances the natural juices of the key limes.

Where can you find key limes?

Well, depending on the season and the store, you may be bale to pick up a bag of key limes and fresh squeeze them. However, almost all store, any time of the year, carry bottled key lime juice.

This Nellie & Joe&rsquos brand of key lime juice is usually easy to come by and so is what I normally use.

Ever been to Key West?

Slightly off topic but I mean, we are talking about key lime pies here! Where do you think this pie came from? 😉 I&rsquom lucky enough to say that I&rsquove been to Key West several times. It&rsquos one of my favorite places I&rsquove even been.

What I love about it is the tropical vibes, of course, but it actually has a small town vibe. So like imagine a small country town but add palm trees and tourists. Does that even make sense? It will if you ever go to Key West.

So, yes I&rsquove had Key Lime Pie IN Key West so I can tell you this recipe is right on the money when it comes to that same classic, authentic key lime pie taste.

If you&rsquove been lucky enough to enjoy a slice of authentic key lime pie then this will take you back! Whether you&rsquove been there or not though &mdash this recipe will have you feeling the tropical vibes with each silky smooth bite.
