Key Lime Pie

Posted by Donna:

For years I had heard of Key Lime Pie, and knowing that it was green absolutely turned me off completely. Green is my favorite color, but in a pie-----no, thank you. However, the year I retired from teaching, my mind was changed about the pie. A teacher friend was going to Weight Watchers at the time, and brought this pie to school for our team to try. To my shock, I really liked it. I fixed it several times for Larry and me. He wasn't that thrilled about it, but I enjoyed it very much.

1 small box sugar-free lime-flavored gelatin

1/4 cup boiling water

2 ( 8 oz.) containers key lime pie-flavored light yogurt

1 container ( 8 oz.) frozen fat free whipped topping, thawed

1 prepared 9" reduced-fat graham cracker pie crust (I couldn't find the reduced-fat graham cracker pie crust, so I used the regular.)

In a large heat-resisitant bowl, dissolve the gelatin in boiling water. With a wire whisk, stir in the yogurt. Next, fold in the whipped topping with a wooden spoon.

Pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust; refrigerate overnight, or at least for 3 or 4 hours.

I haven't made this in a while because it's been lost among all my "tried" recipes. I stumbled into it a couple of months ago and, as usual, wondered why I haven't made this. Of course, the answer is simple, I've become very lazy in my "golden years."

I haven't done this, but I'm sure the lime flavor could be switched out very easily to another flavor.
