Lime cream pie

I love making no bake desserts, there are quick to make, super easy and guess what they do not require you to use the oven, which is perfect especially on those hot summer days.

I recently managed to get my hands on the Food52 cookbook, I just happened to see a copy in the local Woolworths and I closed my eyes and just bought it. Thank goodness my mother was not with me, she would have blown a gasket had she had seen the price.

I came across this recipe in that book and the picture attached to it looked so appetising.

No baking  was required and the method was super easy only a few store bought ingredients, some elbow grease whisking and popping into the fridge to set over night and come Sunday dessert was set which meant that I could sleep in a few extra minutes.

All in all, everyone loved this treat, even my mother she could not get enough of it.
