Key Lime Yogurt Ice Box Cake Recipe

Key Lime Yogurt Ice Box Cake…I love it when an idea actually becomes a reality, and things work out the way they should. I have had a couple of requests for more ice box cake recipes…but I was having a hard time coming up with something original. So I made a list of fruits that could feasibly be the theme of an ice box cake (that I haven’t already done.) Because it’s summer, and I love citrus, I opted for something lime. Along with the cream cheese and Cool Whip, an icebox cake filling needs something that will give it substance, and of course flavor. I’ve used juice concentrate, pudding and pumpkin but never yogurt. My favorite yogurt is actually key lime, so I picked up a couple of extra containers and gave it a try.

Along with the cream cheese, yogurt and Cool Whip, I added fresh lime juice and fresh lime zest. I used regular limes because I couldn’t find key limes. The result is a delightful, light and tangy make-ahead dessert.

I used a 9 x 9 square baking pan but it could be made in an 8 x 8 as well. If you use the smaller size pan, you may have enough filling to get four layers. Of course it could also be doubled and made in a 9 x 13. As always, I shared some with my dad and he gave it a thumbs-up.
