How To Make Low Carb Key Lime Pie With Cream Cheese
The process for how to make keto key lime pie needs just 4 easy steps:
- Make the crust. Mix together the almond flour, coconut oil, and erythritol and press into the pie pan. Do your best to get the crust into an even layer.
- Mix the filling. Blend together avocado, cream cheese, erythritol, and vanilla extract together. Once it’s combined, add in the lime zest and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
- Pour the filling over the crust and smooth with the back of a spoon.
- Chill the keto key lime pie. You’ll want to refrigerate the pie for at least two hours so that it’s firm enough to cut.
TIP: If the key lime pie with cream cheese is a little soft, stick it into the freezer to help it solidify quicker.
How To Make A Low Carb Pie Crust
Low carb pie crust is easy to make, you just have to use low carb ingredients! I’ve found great success in swapping almond flour for regular, refined white flour and using erythritol instead of sugar.
It tastes like traditional pie crust, but without all the carbs and sugars! My almond flour crust is perfect for this sugar free key lime pie cheesecake and it couldn’t be easier to make.
Are Limes Ok For Keto Diet?
Yes, limes are ok for the keto diet! An entire lime has just 5 grams of net carbs, and it’s unlikely you would eat an entire lime anyway. In this keto key lime pie recipe for example, there are 4 limes divided between 12 servings.

How To Make Keto Key Lime Pie Ahead
Keto key lime pie is a great dessert to make ahead of time, as the low carb key lime pie filling actually needs enough time to properly chill.
It’s easy to make ahead. Simply make the keto key lime pie and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it.
How To Freeze Avocado Key Lime Pie
If you have any extra key lime pie made with avocado… which I wouldn’t count on, but just in case 😉 … you can freeze it! Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and keep in the freezer.
When you’re ready to eat, simply remove from the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge, or let it sit out for a few minutes on the counter to soften a bit. And dig in.
It’s delicious frozen! But you can let it thaw on the counter for a bit if it’s too hard.
