Kim, how was it?? I made it last night and my DH ate a piece when he got home from work early this am. I didn't ask him how it was since he went to bed before I got up this am, LOL! I don't want to eat a piece now since lunch is coming soon. :D

I make this type of pie regularly and it is yummy. I wasn't on WW last year, but I've been making this pie for a while. My family last year ate ALL of my pie and left the full fat stuff and they are NOT the lowfat type. You can vary the flavors to make whatever kind you want. Black cherry, raspberry, orange creamsicle is one of our favs (orange yogurt is hard to find but you could use peach yogurt and orange jello) the variations are limitless.

Finally got a chance to make this pie and let me tell you it is delicious!!! It is a recipe you can make really quick and take with you somewhere and noone would ever guess it was WW. The recipe made a little bit more than the crust would hold so I put it in a small bowl and ate it just like that. IT IS THAT GOOD!!

I have never been able to make this pie since I cannot find the lime yogurt (apparently Canadians prefer Mocha Banana Coconut over simple Lime. Weird.), but it's nice to know that it can be made with different flavours.

 

I told my husband since we're going to the Florida Keys over New Years for 2 weeks I get to have REAL Key Lime Pie (being pregnant has it's advantages. :D )

It depends on how you want to serve it and the temperature of your apartment. At home my DH likes it to sit out only about 5 minutes or so, but to me that's still too frozen. I like mine to sit for about 10 - 12 minutes. If you leave it sit any longer then you just won't have a frozen dessert. It does not have to be frozen at all!

This IS good! If you are a fiber freak like me, or just want to get in some extra fiber in a pain-free way (like 7 grams for 1/8 of the pie!!!)...try making your crust out of:

2 c. fiber one cereal

1 T. splenda (sometimes I even leave this out... the cereal is a little bit sweet)

1-2 T. light margerine, melted

buzz all of this up in the food processer, press it into you pie plate and bake at 375 for 8-10 min. Then cool and proceed with the recipe. I use this alot and change up the jello/yogurt flavors.

Just to update- Hungrygirl.com has a pie similar to this posted on their site today. It is also very good. 4 points for that one if I am not mistaken though- due to all of the fat in the margerine, Iwould assume.

I make the crust as I posted below- It is really good. Not fat free, but low fat. No sugar, and & g. of fiber added to your daily intake!

This is still our favorite pie. I made it two weeks ago and DH asked for it again last week. I didn't want to make Key Lime two weeks in a row, so I used raspberry Jello and mixed berry yogurt. It was terrific. Let me know how the Lemon flavor comes out.

Here's another version of key lime pie. This one is from (http://www.dailyherald.com/story/print/?id=122900). I changed RF crust to the Fiber One crust found on this forum, which I think makes this about 4 points . . .

 

 

Easy and Delicious Reduced-Fat Key Lime Pie

4 teaspoons grated lime zest

4 large egg yolks

½ cup fresh lime juice (from about 3 to 4 limes)

1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk

1 Fiber One pie crust

3 cups fat-free nondairy whipped topping

Place oven rack in center position and heat oven to temperature directed on pie crust package.

While oven heats, make filling: In a medium glass mixing bowl whisk lime zest and egg yolks together for 2 minutes or until combined and green in color. Beat in sweetened, condensed milk until combined. Beat in lime juice and set mixture aside at room temperature to thicken, about 15 minutes.

For the crust: Prepare according to recipe.

Pour thickened filling into pre-baked crust, smoothing surface. Bake 15-17 minutes or until center begins to firm, yet wiggles slightly when jiggled. Cool pie on wire rack and then chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

Prior to serving, spread nondairy whipped topping evenly on pie.

Serves eight.

I made this (the original recipe in the first post) and it is very good. I did not make a crust at all - just plan to eat it as a creamy or frozen dessert. I tried it semi-frozen, and think I prefer it that way.

 

Using SF Jell-O plus Publix brand FF Whipped Topping and FF Light Key Lime Pie Yogurt, the total calories are 820 - no fat or fiber.

 

I wanted to know exactly how much I had by weight, so I could weigh a serving and figure the points that way - so I weighed it after mixing, and had 25.5 ounces; 820 divided by 25.5 = 32.156 calories per ounce :)

 

I would like it a bit more "limey" - next time, I may put some lime (or maybe lemon) juice in the 1/4 cup of water the Jell-O is dissolved in. Or what would happen if I used an extra 1/2 tsp or so of the Jell-O powder? Anyone have an idea?

I made this for St. Patrick's Day. We decided that we prefer it without the crust - just the filling. Very yummy. I was worried about a "diet" taste with the sugar-free jello, but didn't find that at all. Even the kids chowed down on it.

 

I'm looking forward to trying it in different flavors now. I think this may be the thing to defeat my cheesecake cravings!
