cup lime juice
envelope unflavored gelatin (2 teaspoons)
teaspoon grated lime peel
cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk (from 14-oz can)
drops green food color, if desired
drop yellow food color, if desired
cups frozen (thawed) fat-free whipped topping (from 12-oz container)
graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz)
thin lime slices, cut into quarters, if desired
In 1-quart saucepan, place lime juice; sprinkle with gelatin. Let stand 1 minute to soften. Heat over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Stir in lime peel.
In medium bowl, mix condensed milk and food colors. Stir in lime juice mixture. Using rubber spatula, fold in all but 1/4 cup of the whipped topping. Spread in pie crust, smoothing top. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
Before serving, garnish pie with remaining 1/4 cup whipped topping and lime slices.
To keep this pie picture-perfect, use the plastic cover that came with the crust as a protective cover; just turn it upside down over the pie.
You can store this creamy pie for up to a week in the refrigerator.
