With summer in full force, Miss Eloise is always begging me for ice cream. To compromise, I make here these Paleo Key Lime Ice Box Bars that makes her forget all about the ice cream. Here comes the good news folks, they are made with clean ingredients that make an afternoon treat both nutritious and delicious.
Key Lime Pie is seriously one of the best desserts ever, especially for summer, but is filled with sugar. I never thought I could make it Paleo, but guess what y’all? I DID and it will blow your sock off. I just knew that it wouldn’t taste anything like Key Lime Pie, but it tastes identical. My husband could not believe it was actually Paleo and devoured them.
The texture of the crust is like a Larabar and the filling on top is a thick velvety consistency like ice cream. They are not too tart and have the perfect balance of sweet and sour. They are no bake and all you need is a mixer and a freezer. I will make a few batches of these bars to keep in the freezer and when Eloise starts begging for ice cream on hot summer days, I will go grab a bar and let her sit on the front step and enjoy. She never complains that it is not ice cream and the only thing I hear coming out of her mouth is “yum!”
If you are needing an easy summer dessert for your kids or maybe to take to a summer BBQ, these will not disappoint. Don’t spend hours in the kitchen, you can whip these delicious babies up in a jiff. Just a little warning, they will melt pretty quick so keep them in the freezer until ready to serve.
