Thick and Creamy Key Lime Pudding - a perfectly refreshing dessert for the warmer weather.

Here is my simple recipe for thick and creamy Key Lime Pudding! Make a double batch if you’re serving true lime lovers.


  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime or key lime juice 
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Fit a medium sized bowl with a fine mesh sieve; set aside.
  2. Combine the lime zest, lime juice, sugar, and eggs in medium saucepan. Add butter and bring mixture to a very controlled simmer – stirring almost constantly – over medium-low heat. Once the mixture has thickened – it should be able to coat the back of a metal spoon – remove from heat and pour through the sieve. Place bowl in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. Once the pudding has chilled, whip the cream and confectioners sugar together in a stand mixer until stiff peaks begin to form. Fold the cream into the cooled pudding, stirring until completely combined.
  4. Eat at once or refrigerate until needed. Pudding will last up to 48 hours.
