Spring Lime Pie

Encouraged? Share this post...

When I ask my children what they would like for dessert, nine times out of ten the request is for lime pie. Give this yummy recipe a try if you are looking for a perfect make-ahead dessert for Easter. Best of all, it’s just four ingredients, three easy steps, somewhat healthy, and economical to make. Did I mention it takes mere minutes to put together too?

Step 1. Cut and juice three medium limes. When I can get key limes in our area, this becomes the best-ever key lime pie.

Step 2. Stir one carton of Cool Whip (Sugar Free), one Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk and lime juice together with a spoon. When I was first introduced to this recipe in Robin Miller’s Quick Fix Meals: 200 Simple, Delicious Recipes to Make Mealtime Easy cookbook, fat free sweetened condensed milk sounded like an ingredient for disaster. Let me just say, no flavor or richness is lost. All you’ll be saying buh-bye to is unwanted fat.

Step 3. Pour pie mixture into a Reduced Fat Graham Cracker pie crust. Cover with plastic pie cover and pop into the freezer for a few hours.

This simple pie will keep in the freezer for up to three months, but it never makes it past a day at my house! It is also a fabulously convenient make-ahead dessert to have on hand when taking a meal to a family or when you need to take a dessert somewhere.

Do you have a favorite spring pie recipe you can share?

  1. Thanks, Kellie! This recipe sounds wonderful, and my son LOVES key lime pie. I just plugged the ingredients into My Fitness Pal, and it is something that I can enjoy on Easter w/out blowing my diet! 🙂

  2. I just made this pie last weekend and my family loved it. I substituted heavy whipping cream for the Cool Whip and it turned out just fine!

    Kellie,
    This has got to be the easiest, quickest and best dessert I’ve ever made! Can’t wait to make it into lime pudding! Please keep sharing your recipes.
