The Resilient Key Lime

Have you ever wondered what is the difference between a Key lime and a regular lime? Look no further, the difference is clear. The Key lime is stronger, the juice is more powerful, and the zest is irresistible. 

We are like the world-famous Key lime, full of energy and strength restoring Amara Cay to its own unique flavor. Our staff is working around the clock with the occasional "stop to smell the roses" or carve a festive pumpkin. Our spirits are high and we can’t wait to celebrate with you. Help us honor our Florida Keys culture by following the recipe below for your own delicious slice of pie.

Key Lime Pie Recipe


  • 1 (9-inch) prepared graham cracker crust
  • 3 cups of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 3/4 cup Key lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated Key lime zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium-size bowl, mix the condensed milk, sour cream, Key lime juice, and lime rind. Stir well and pour mix into the graham cracker crust.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for five to eight minutes, until little pinhole bubbles are appearing on the surface of the pie, remove and chill thoroughly before serving. Garnish with delicate Key lime slices and delicious whipped cream.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Amara Cay soon!
