  3. Add in the sweetened condensed and mix for 1 minute on medium-high and then add in key-lime juice. Mix for another 30 seconds on a low-medium speed.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Bake for 15 minutes or until filling is more set.
  5. Let cool for 1 hour before moving to the fridge to chill completely, about 4 more hours. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
