Creamy Key Lime Pie
Healthy Exchanges Newsletter, May 2002, pg 4
We sailed away on our Third Healthy Exchanges Possibilities Cruise this past November and one of our stops was Key West. Of course, we had to try their world famous Key Lime Pie. Cliff requested that I create a healthy version so he could enjoy this delectable treat at home. Here it is!
1 (8 oz) pkg Philadelphia fat free cream cheese
1 (4 serving) pkg Jello sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
2/3 cup water
2/3 cup lime juice*
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip Lite*
1 (6 oz) Keebler graham cracker pie crust
In a large bowl, stir cream cheese with a sturdy spoon until soft. Add dry pudding mix, dry milk powder, water and 1/3 cup lime juice. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/2 cup Cool whip Lite. Spread mixture evenly into pie crust. Evenly spread remaining 1 cup Cool Whip Lite over top. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut into 8 servings. For each serving drizzle 2 teaspoons lime juice on dessert plate and arrange 1 piece of pie over top.
