The Zest of Life

Key limes just ooze summer time!

It’s hard for me to enjoy a key-lime infused treat and not wish I was sunbathing on the beaches of Florida beneath the palm trees.

These mini key lime cheesecake bites have been my go-to sweet the past few months. Normally, it’s all chocolate everything for me – from mint truffles to chocolate chip cookies.

Fruity desserts are getting all the love from me lately, like mixed berry cast iron cobbler and fresh peach and oat crumble.

I’m enjoying all this fresh summer produce and light desserts as I can because fall is just around the corner. And we all know what that means-

Pumpkin season! I can’t pass up the chance to shoutout these pumpkin cheesecake bars. Fall is almost here y’all!

Enjoy the dog days of summer while we have it and I hope you enjoy these bite-sized treats.

How To: Make Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes

These key lime cheesecakes bites are the perfect bite-size treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Line a muffin pan with liners for best results. You can heavily grease the pan but it will be messy taking them out (I learned that the hard way!) A large baking dish could also be used and then cut into squares when done.

First you’ll make and set the graham cracker crumb crust. Run graham crackers through the food processor and then mix in melted butter. Press the crumbs into the bottom of each well.

Allow the crust to cool in the fridge while you prepare the cheesecake mixture.

The mixture ingredients will be mixed adding one ingredient at a time. First, whip only the heavy cream until stiff peaks form and it resembles whipped cream. Transfer to the fridge to remain cool.

Beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth. Next, add the sweetened condensed milk and mix for about 1 minute until it combines with the cream cheese.  

Add the whipped cream back to the bowl and mix until combined. Lastly, you’ll stir in the lime juice and zest.

For a less tart dessert, swap out half of the lime juice for lemon juice. It’s a little less sour but just as tasty!

Pour the mixture into the muffin pan and refrigerate for at least a few hours, preferable overnight.

 You can even freeze these mini key lime cheesecake bites and it will be just like soft serve!

    I haven’t had a key lime pie in literally years but I absolutely love them! I love the mini versions — I think I’d prefer a couple of minis over one great big slab! They’re so cute!

    I recently purchased Keylime Cheesecake from Juniors cheesecake restaurant. It was delicious. Your Keylime Cheesecake looks even more appealing, sure it’s delicious 😋.

    I absolutely love key lime pie AND cheesecake so this is a great find! And it looks like I can make a gluten free version too. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. These look amazing especially for the summer! I’d love to serve these chilled in the garden on a hot sunny day. I love the zesty combination with cream to give the dessert a bit of zing!

  5. Oh wow! These look so yummy – I’m a sucker for a cheesecake and these mini ones would look so fab as part of a party spread! Xx

  6. Hi Kalin,

    These mini key lime cheesecakes sound absolutely delicious. I often find some sweets to be too … well, sweet! Having something that is a little on the sour side sounds like a fantastic idea. Definitely, one that my OH and I need to try 🙂

  7. These both look and sound INCREDIBLE. My husband has a huge weakness for cheesecake, so he would go crazy over these. I’m going to have to save this for the next time that I want to make something a little special for him.

  8. These look delicious! Great recipe. I love key lime flavors and this looks like a wonderful summer recipe. I can practically taste them from the photos! Yum!

    These look amazingly decadent. The perfect recipe for a birthday boy that asked me to make him a cheesecake instead of a cake.
