FAUX KEY LIME PIE
Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving = 1 PointsPlus™
1 (4 oz.) package sugar-free lime Jello
1/2 cup boiling water
1 (8 oz.) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
Juice from 1/2 lime OR 1 TBSP lime juice
Gratings from 1 lime OR 1 tsp grated lime peel
2 cups fat-free whipped topping (measuring cups NOT 16 ounces.....NOT two 8-oz containers......got it?)
Spray a 9” pie plate. Set aside.
Dissolve the jello in the boiling water.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until it's smooth. Slowly add the jello until well combined. Stir in lime juice and peel. Fold in whipped topping.
Pour into pie plate and chill for 3 hours.
MY SPIN: This actually comes out almost like a mousse......light and fluffy! I think this would be a really cool dessert to do in those cutesy little parfait glasses. And I think this would be good using lemon......or even orange. Might have to try one of those flavors next!
