If you love key lime pie, you don’t want to miss these sweet-tart, bright and tangy key lime pie ice cream sandwiches. Dairy-free creamy lime ice cream is sandwiched between honey-graham cookies for a delicious summer treat.


Ice Cream

  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime zest
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cans (3 1/2 cups or 26 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp white rum (or vodka)


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup graham flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp dark honey


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  1. For the ice cream, place lime zest and sugar in a food processor and pulse for 1 minute; add lime juice and process until blended. Pour mixture into a medium bowl; whisk in coconut milk, salt, and rum until smooth. Cover and chill for 4 hours in the refrigerator, then pour into frozen cylinder of ice cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Spoon mixture into a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer until firm.
  2. For the cookies, whisk together flours, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Beat butter and brown sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and honey until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. Scrape dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and shape into a disc; wrap in plastic and chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours or up to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide the dough into 2 sections; working with one section at a time, roll dough out to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured board. Use a 2 1/4-inch fluted biscuit cutter to cut into circles. Repeat with remaining dough, re-rolling scraps as needed, until you have 48 circles.
  4. Use a wooden skewer to poke a pattern of holes on half of the circles (these will be your tops). Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle over cookies. Chill cookies on baking sheets in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  5. Bake for 7 minutes, until cookies are slightly puffed and edges are firm. Cool for 3 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Freeze cookies in an airtight container for at least one hour.
  6. To assemble sandwiches, use a small cookie scoop to place a scoop of ice cream between two chilled cookies and press lightly. Place assembled ice cream sandwiches on a baking sheet and cover with plastic; return to the freezer for two hours. Wrap sandwiches individually in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to 7 days. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.


The rum prevents the ice cream from freezing too firmly; vodka may be substituted.

    1. Hi Sandra, the alcohol prevents the ice cream from freezing too firmly and becoming difficult to scoop. You can try using a tablespoon of corn syrup instead for similar results.

    1. Hi Jill! If you don’t have an ice cream maker, then I would substitute store-bought ice cream, or search for a no-churn ice cream recipe to use instead.

  1. Can I substitute the eggs in this recipe and still have it be the right texture cookie for an ice cream sandwich?

    1. Hi Cierra! You can substitute whole wheat flour, graham cracker crumbs, or simply replace the graham flour with all-purpose flour.

  2. Has anyone accidentally used too much rum extract?? I just did and am wondering if I double the rest of the recipe if that will dilute it enough !!help!!

    1. Hi Heather, you can definitely double the ice cream base. If it’s too much to freeze all at once in your ice cream maker, you can keep half of it in the refrigerator for a day or two and then freeze (whisk or blend well before adding it to the ice cream maker). Hope that helps! 🙂
