I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the kitchen with Icelandic Provisions to bring you these new Key Lime Cookie Cups. They are so easy to make and it’s something the whole family will love. If you are looking for a gluten-free friendly simple dessert for the summer, look no further!
I am blown away by how much these taste like mini Key Lime pies! It’s truly delicious. In my year of health, I am not restricting myself on dessert, but I love to find creative ways to make dessert work better for my body. With these cups, you have about two cookies, and a dollop of skyr that’s filled with protein. So not only is it delicious, but it’s also a lovely satiating snack.
Why I love Skyr
If you’ve been around a while, you know I am a huge fan of Icelandic Provisions Skyr. It’s so freaking delicious, and I love the history behind it too! Icelanders have been making skyr for over 1,000 years. Icelandic Provisions is the only Skyr in the U.S. that is made with the original Icelandic recipe and Iceland Heirloom Skyr Cultures.
I’m also loving this rebrand from Icelandic! It’s so colorful and exciting, plus the longboat is a fun nod to Icelandic Heritage. And you know how much I love beautiful things in the kitchen. It just makes it that much more fun to cook and create.
I am always looking for food that is delicious and also fuels my body. With Icelandic Provisions Skyr, you get 15 grams of protein and 30% less sugar than ordinary yogurt. Not to mention it is even more delicious in my opinion! It’s thick, creamy goodness that you will totally love.
Making your cookie cups
If you aren’t gluten-free, feel free to use a wonderful gluten-full cookie for the recipe. I am pretty delighted that the gluten-free version, however, is not lacking whatsoever. The combination of the cookie, butter and lovely Skyr on top makes it fantastic.
To form the cookie crust, take your time making sure the thickness is just how you would like. I used my fingers, but you can also use a spoon to help you with it. By pushing it up the sides a bit, you are left with the perfect thickness for the bottom of your cookie cup!
After hardening the crusts in the freezer, bring it back out to add your Skyr. The thing to know about Skyr is that you cannot freeze it for too long. So once the Skyr is added, put it in the freezer for just 20 minutes and serve, or transfer it to the fridge. By the way, it will be amazing with any of Icelandic Skyr flavors, so feel free to get creative.

These gluten-free key lime cookie cups are perfect for an easy and delicious summer dessert!
12 cupcake liners
21 vanilla creme cookies, we used 1 package of Glutino Gluten-Free Cookies
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 (5.3 ounce) Icelandic Provisions Key Lime Thick & Creamy Skyr
Mini Lime wedges to garnish, optional
Place the cupcake liners in a 12-muffin tin.
In a large food processor, pulse the vanilla creme cookies until completely crumbled. Pour in the melted butter and continue to pulse until all is incorporated.
Transfer the cookie and butter mixture into a bowl. Use a spatula to retrieve all the butter from the bottom of the food processor that was not incorporated and stir it into the mixture.
As a guide, use a tablespoon to form equal cups. Scoop two tablespoons into each cupcake liner, then use the back of a spoon to help form the crust in the cups by pressing the mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides. Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes or until hard.
Remove from the freezer and scoop 2 tablespoons of Key Lime Skyr into the cups. Return to the freezer for about 20 minutes, until it sets but is not completely frozen. Remove from the freezer and store in the fridge. When ready to serve, garnish with mini lime wedges!
