I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for a classic key lime pie. I can't get enough of the tangy sweetness and the graham cracker crust. Add a side of banana ice cream and you've totally won over my heart. So there I was, dreaming of this delicious dish, when it occurred to me that things could be so much simpler. What if I just combined the two into a bowl of key lime pie ice cream?

I grabbed my blender. I waited impatiently for everything to blend, popped the mixture in a bowl, and dug a spoon in. The result? I can honestly say that ice cream pie tastes just as good as it sounds. The best part? It's vegan and a lot healthier than a traditional key lime pie, but tastes just as good (if not better).
