Easy Homemade Key Lime Pie

posted in: food | 0

I was inspired on Friday afternoon to make a key lime pie.  I should have let it chill more, but other than that – its pretty tasty!

1 pre-made graham cracker crust

2 key lime pie yogurts (6 oz)

1/2 cup coolwhip

1 block 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup lime curd


1 pint heavy whipping cream

3 T sugar

lime zest

Hershey’s Special Dark ice cream topping

Mix filling, pour into crust.  Whip cream until desired stiffness, then add in sugar.  Set it atop the filling.  Zest the lime on top as a pretty garnish.  Heat syrup in microwave and then swirl on top of pie for an elegant finish (and I loved the bitterness with the tang of the lime!)

For best results:

Let it chill overnight. This helps with the stiffness of the filling

Use a cold clean knife and a pie server to get out a clean slice
