Healthy Key Lime Pie

I got this recipe from Hungry Girl. I dressed it up by serving them in martini glasses and dipping the rims in graham cracker crumbs. It's funny how a simple glass can add so much fun to a dessert :) This is super quick and easy to make and tasty without all the fat and sugar.

Chow!

Healthy Key Lime Pie

Ingredients:
One 4-serving package (or half an 8-serving package) Jell-O Sugar Free Lime Gelatin
dessert mix
2 cups Cool Whip Free, thawed
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
8 low-fat honey graham crackers (2 sheets)

Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup boiling water with gelatin mix and sweetener. Stir for at least 2 minutes (until completely dissolved). Then add 1 /2 cup cold water, the lemon juice, and the vanilla extract. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes, until slightly thickened but still mixable.

Next, stir in the Cool Whip. Mix until thoroughly blended (a wire whisk works best). Divide mixture among 5 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until firm (at least 3 hours).

Once ready to serve, crush graham crackers, and evenly distribute the crumbs over the top of the dishes.

Just came across your blog and I love it. This key lime pie looks good.

I'm originally from Rochester, though now live down South and have a food blog as well. I'll occasionally post about Rochester & Western New York food favorites, though, like salt potatoes:
