Key Lime Pie Popsicle Recipe

This recipe is adapted from one I found in Internal Bliss, with added gelatin and marrow for a nutrient-dense boost. If you’re on GAPS – or even if you aren’t! – this is a great cookbook.



  1. Place gelatin in a small bowl
  2. Heat coconut milk so that it is very hot to the touch, then add it to the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Mash any lumps that form.
  3. Pour coconut oil/gelatin mixture into a blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and pour into molds and freeze for 4-6 hours

* To prepare bone marrow, simply bring 1 pound of marrow bones to boil in a pot of water and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove bones from water and extract the marrow with a butter knife (it should slide right out). Add the leftover bones to a batch of stock if desired.

    I have fond memories of a vacation to the Keys where we had Key Lime Pie at least once a day. We had to decide just who made the BEST pie of course! Now I always buy a bag of those little yellow key limes every summer when they show up in my grocery store. I will have to make these popsicles with them this year!

    • Heather says:

      We used to do the same thing, Lee! Several of the ones we bought were partially frozen when we got them home, which is how I got the idea for these pops!

  2. Nicole Rice says:

    Think I could use cream in the place of the coconut milk, or will the lime juice curdle it? I’m out of coconut milk- but would love to make these today!

    • Heather says:

      Well, you are the classically trained chef so if you don’t know I can’t say for sure, but I’m guessing that if you blend the avocado and lime juice first it would neutralize the reaction.

  3. Edie says:

    When you add the bone marrow, is this cooked or raw? What a great place to tuck that nutritional gem in, either way! I love the Internal Bliss Key Lime Pie recipe, so we will definitely be trying these too. Thanks!

    • Heather says:

      Thanks for your question, Edie! I meant to include instructions for preparing the marrow but forgot. Will update now!

  5. Steph says:

    I noticed in the instructions that in step 2 it says to add “coconut milk” to the gelatin, then in step 3 it says to add the “coconut oil”/gelatin mixture to the rest of the ingredients. Maybe I’m missing something, and sorry if I am, but do I heat the coconut milk and add it to the gelatin or heat the coconut oil and add it to the gelatin. And does anyone know what will happen if I were to leave both the gelatin and marrow out of the mix? (I’m vegetarian) It says optional but will I be sacrificing some serious flavor or texture? Just curious… not sure what their role is in the recipe. My mouth is watering just thinking about these. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    • Kimberly says:


      These look great, I’ve never made them but I plan on replacing the gelatin with dissolved agar flakes, which is a vegetarian gelatin. Agar is produced from sea vegtables, and it gels up the same way gelatin would. I also plan on leaving out the bone marrow. Just my two cents.

    Anyone have a favorite popsicle mold, that actually works? Had a set that just didn’t manage to do the trick. This is a fabulous idea for getting the bone marrow into my kids (who I am kidding, me too) so now wanting to hurry up and order some molds!! Thank you for posting this recipe!

    Love the sound of this recipe! Do you think it would work well as an ice-cream instead of a popsicle?

  14. Crystal says:

    I’ve been wanting to make these for awhile now and finally got around to it today. They aren’t frozen yet, but I’m entirely serious when I tell you, I was trying to figure out how to lick my blender clean…that’s how amazing it was (or I am just super weird)! Love your blog. I follow nourishing traditions, but we aren’t there 100% yet. Sometimes it’s overwhelming to think about making all the changes we still need to make. How do you find time? I have two girls under two and don’t want to spend all my time in the kitchen (a lot, just not all!)…any advice?

    • Heather says:

      Yay! I’m so glad you liked the recipe, Crystal! I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen, either, so I have a collection of quick recipes (like my gummy stars) and crock pot recipes (which take a long time to cook but require very little hands-on time). I also tend to make things in double batches and freeze some for a day when our schedule is crazy. Hope that helps!

    I’m sorry but I tried these and they were horrible. I used everything called for after 12 hours in the freezer they were mushy (I’m assuming from the avocado) and way too tart. I’ll try a different recipe next time.
