Key lime dip is fluffy, whipped cream cheese infused with tangy key lime juice to make the ultimate dipping dessert.

If you love key lime pie or key lime cheesecake, then this key lime dip is for you! It tastes like key lime pie meets cheesecake in a fluffy, creamy dip.

This key lime dip has been on our site for 4 years, and it’s hands down one of my favorite recipes. We start with softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, a touch of sour cream, then add real key lime juice to make this delicious dessert dip.

It’s similar to our turtle cheesecake dip, only we’ve swapped out the chocolate and caramel flavors with key lime. This will be a family favorite in no time.

How to make key lime dip:

  1. Place the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, sour cream, key lime juice, vanilla, and green food coloring (if using) in a large bowl.
  2. Use a hand mixer to beat until the ingredients are smooth and creamy.
  3. Transfer the key lime pie dip to a serving bowl.
  4. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.

Absolutely, but it won’t taste the same. The dip will actually be “lime dip” instead of “key lime dip,” but the substitution is fine. You may need to use a little more lime juice to get the same amount of lime flavor.
