Sugar Free Key Lime Recipe
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 - 8 ounce block of FAT FREE cream cheese (Yes, fat free cream cheese tastes like wallpaper paste (don't ask me how I know this...)
BUT, you'll never know that it's fat free in this recipe!)
1 cup of skim milk
1 small box of sugar free lime gelatin
1 large container of fat free whipped topping
a few packets of no calorie sweetener
How to Prepare
Whip up the cream cheese and milk until fluffy, then add the packet of gelatin (powder only! Do NOT mix with water!). Also add a few packets of no calorie sweetener to suit your personal taste.
Mixture will be very fluffy and green.
Next, carefully FOLD in 1/2 the container of softened whipped topping. Chill until set, then top pie with remainder of topping.
The juice of one real lime adds a distinctive taste, as does a teaspoon of grated rind.
Serves 8 for about 250 calories per slice.
Serving Tips, Suggestions
Tip: Make strawberry pie by substituting strawberry gelatin and a few fresh strawberries OR orange pie by using orange gelatin and drained mandarin oranges.
A key lime, fat reduced yogurt can also be added to the pie rather than using the sugar free lime gelatin. Simply mix 1 cup with the topping and fill a prepared pie crust. Generally, no added sweetening power will be necessary.
