No-Bake Margarita Pie


This is a sponsored post by Challenge Butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible!

Some of you may know this about me already, but I don't drink alcohol. My parents don't drink, and I've never cared for the taste of it. Not to mention alcohol has a lot of empty calories. I've always said I would rather eat my calories than drink them, which I'm sure is not shocking after reading this blog.

You may be wondering why I would write about this in a post for a recipe titled "Margarita Pie." I thought it was appropriate to bring up because I want to make it clear that this recipe is enjoyable for both drinkers and nondrinkers. It can also be modified to include alcohol if that's something you enjoy.

I'm also including this "disclaimer" because I know my high school-age cousins and her friends read my blog (or at least they tell me they do), so it's important to me that none of my recipes exclude them.

Now, while we're on the topic of margaritas, can I just say how proud I am of the fact that I came up with this slogan for this pie (or maybe it's a saying, not a slogan): "Drink your margarita, and eat it too! I don't know if it's ever been said before. I'm not Googling it to find out. I just know that I came up with it using my own brain cells, so I'm claiming ownership.



No-Bake Margarita Pie
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces Challenge cream cheese
  • 7-ounces sweetened condensed milk (this is half of normal-sized can, which is why it looks like such an odd number)
  • 8 ounces margarita mix*
  • Optional: 2 Tablespoons to 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces whipped topping, thawed
  • Zest of three limes
  • 1 prepared graham cracker crust
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, about 2 or 3 minutes
  2. Add condensed milk and cream until smooth; do the same with the margarita mix, optional tequila and salt
  3. Spoon in the whipped topping and lime zest and beat to combine
  4. Add mixture to graham cracker pie crust and smooth top
  5. Place in freezer for 4 to 6 hours or overnight
  6. Garnish with additional whipped topping and more lime zest if desired
*Notes: If you choose to add the optional tequila, I recommend reducing the amount of margarita mix to 6 ounces.
