But, really, my kids have been begging me to get one of those plastic pools from the store and fill it up for them.

Sadly, the answer has been no.

I did have to laugh at the thought of two almost teenage (cringe) kiddos in a tiny plastic pool!

  • (2) 8oz packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons key lime juice
  • Zest of 2 lime
  • 1-2 drop green food coloring (optional)
  • Graham crackers or nilla wafers for serving
  1. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, half and half, and vanilla until fully combined.
  2. Mix in the key lime juice, zest, and food coloring.
  3. Transfer dip to the serving dish and chill until ready to serve.
  4. Garnish with additional lime zest, lime slices, and graham cracker crumbs if desired.

Pretty sure they weren’t thrilled with my dip instead of pool offering.

I personally think it’s a perfectly fair compromise.

This dip is so delicious….just give me a spoon and let me dive in, please.

It’s not overly sweet which I like.  Key lime things are supposed to have a prominent tang in my book.

Best part about this dip?  10 minutes or less to put together.  Boom. Snack time.

It makes a decent amount too, and no matter how badly you want to eat the entire bowl of silky goodness, you should probably share.  Because, it’s gonna be your favorite dip to take to all of your summer cookouts and parties this year.
