Low Fat Easy Key Lime Pie

Low Fat Easy Key Lime Pie

Although you can get key lime pie in the freezer all year long, summer is a wonderful time to enjoy this tart dessert on a warm night. As I was searching for recipes I was thrilled to find one this  Low Fat Easy Key Lime Pie from Cooking Light.

The best part about it is that I did not tell anyone before they ate it and they did not even suggest it might be low fat.

How to Make a Low Fat Easy Key Lime Pie 

Key Lime vs Lime

Can you make a key lime pie with regular limes?  Be sure to check your grocery store to first see if they have fresh key limes in a bag.  They are smaller much smaller than regular limes, about the size of a walnut.

Our grocery store did not have key limes so originally I picked up a few large limes. Then in the juice aisle, I found Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key Lime Juice, on the shelf. I do not have an electric juicer so this was a great alternative and time saver. I did keep one lime in my grocery cart to use for the rind.

How to make this pie low fat.

Also by using a pre-made low-fat graham cracker crust, this takes only minutes to put together.

How far ahead should I make a key lime pie?

Make sure you make this ahead of time, I made mine the day before serving as the pie needs too cool. However, do not add the cool whip until you are ready to serve.

 

The cake was easy to slice, the cool whip was just a little messy.

I added some extra lime zest on the top for decoration.

 

Don’t feel bad about having a second piece, remember it is low fat!
