This cool and creamy custard pie is too good to reserve only for times of indulgence. At least that’s how we feel, and it's the reason we developed this lower-calorie recipe. Its limey flavor comes from the inclusion of juice, zest and one secret shortcut ingredient: Yoplait® Light Thick & Creamy Key lime pie yogurt. Adding in yogurt, along with fat-free cream cheese and Cool Whip lite, helped us recreate the trademark creamy texture and rich flavor of this pie, while avoiding the higher-calorie evaporated milk and whipped cream used in the traditional recipe. The result of these smart swaps is a 200-calorie treat that’s earned approval from well over 100 of your fellow home cooks. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Research shows that eating 3 daily servings of low-fat calcium-rich dairy foods like yogurt can play an important role in weight loss plans.
  • The extra-tart Key lime is smaller, rounder and yellower than the standard Persian limes found at most grocery-stores. When purchasing, look for smooth-skinned, heavy limes. These are indications the fruit is fresh and juicy. Unless you live in the Florida Keys, you might have to visit a specialty shop to find Key limes and you can expect to pay accordingly. An alternative to buying Key limes is to look for Key lime juice at your grocery store.
  • While this recipe calls for using a store-bought graham cracker crust, you could easily make your own. For step-by-step instructions, check out our article on How to Make Graham Cracker Crust.
