These are great and easy to make. My kids don't like key lime pie, but they love these. Thank you for sharing.

It was a good balance of tart and sweet. I used it in parfait glasses. I did add 2 drops of green food color.

the filling didn't set well for me. I did add more Key lime juice from real key limes as well as some lime zest, and then some corn starch to set it. This taste great

Made these for a group of 12 people and everyone loved them! The day before serving I put the mousse in a ziplock bag and refrigerated it. At the last minute I cut the corner off the bag and "piped" the mousse into the cups, it worked great.

There was left-over mousse so the next morning I made crepes, filled them with the mousse and the extra raspberries, Yum again!
