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.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 3 containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Light Thick & Creamy Key lime pie yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Cool Whip lite frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix water and lime juice. Sprinkle gelatin on lime juice mixture; let stand 1 minute. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved. Cool slightly, about 2 minutes.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add yogurt and lime juice mixture; beat on low speed until well blended.
  • 3
    Fold in whipped topping and lime peel. Pour into crust. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    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.
