Key Lime Pie, Low-Fat Instant

Submitted by: THINKTHIN313

Introduction

For Those with a Tangy Sweet Tooth For Those with a Tangy Sweet Tooth
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 9-Inch Low-Fat Ready-Made Pie Crust
    1 12-Oz. Tub Frozen Whipped Topping, Thawed
    1 8-Serving-Size Box Sugar-Free Lime Gelatin
    1/4 Cup Lime Juice
    1/4 Cup Water
    Another 1/4 Cup Water, separate

Directions

Empty the whipped topping container in a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine lime juice and 1/4 C water, then add lime gelatin and stir until it is dissolved. Remove from stove. Let sit one minute. Add additional 1/4 C cold water to saucepan. Stir. Mix gelatin with whipped topping, using a spatula to fold ingredients until well incorporated. Place mixture into pie crust and refrigerate (sets rapidly). Makes 8 servings with a 9-inch pie crust size.

UPDATE NOTE in response to those who have reported jello/Cool Whip separation: This has happened to me a couple of times, and I determined that the jello was too warm when I incorporated it into the whipped topping; the jello has to be quite cool (but obviously still in liquid form), which avoids melting the Cool Whip as well and maintains the volume. Also, I do find that working with Kraft brand light Cool Whip makes a difference as opposed to a store brand.

  • Delicious! I'm sure I did something wrong but during the chilling process some of the key lime jello settled on the bottom and the whipped topping laid on top. I thought it created an extra awesome treat! - 6/12/07
