3/8cupkey lime juice(3/8 equal to 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp)
7ozsweetened condensed milk1/2 of a 14 oz can
Green food coloringoptional
1 Prepared Graham Cracker Crust (or homemade version below)
2/3 cupshredded coconutunsweetened
Crush graham crackers until very fine. I find this works best in a food processor but you can also a rolling pin and a Ziploc bag. If using a food processor, add the melted butter to the crushed graham crackers and process until it is completely combined. If using the rolling pin method, pour the graham cracker crumbs into a bowl and then add the melted butter. Mix well.
Combine the key lime juice, thawed cool whip, and the 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk. Whip it until smooth and pour into the prepared crust.
Chill for at least 15 minutes before serving.
If desired, toast coconut in a pan over medium high heat stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. Just before serving top with toasted coconut.
