Ingredients

    Pie crust, graham cracker, 1 shell (9" dia)
    1 egg white
    1 egg
    8 oz Low fat cream cheese
    0.5 cup Greek yogurt , plain, 0% fat
    1/2 can Condensed milk, fat free
    1/4 cup Orange juice (or lime, or lemon)
    1 tbsp. Orange zest (or lime, or lemon)
    8-10 cups of hot water and large baking tray for water bath

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375F.
Separate one egg (we'll not need the yolk) and beat the egg white for 1 minute till it is foamy but still liquid. Smooth egg white all over the pie shell with a brush to seal possible cracks. Bake the pie crust for 5-6 minutes.
Save the rest of the egg white.
Preheat the oven to 325F.
Beat cream cheese, yogurt and condensed milk till the batter is creamy and smooth, add orange juice and zest and mix it. Add the rest of the egg white and one whole egg. Mix it in well at a low speed.
Put the pie crust in a bigger baking tray, pore the batter into the crust. Pore the hot water around the pie to make a water bath.
Bake for 50-60 minutes.
Cool before serving or even better - overnight.
