Luscious Lime Chiffon Pie - 4 Points

Recipe By :JoAnna M. Lund
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Pies

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup Diet Mountain Dew -- or water (or a little less), * see tips
1/4 lime, with skin and seeds -- cut into chunks, * see tips
1 package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding
mix -- (4 serving size)
1 package JELL-O sugar-free lime gelatin -- (4 serving size)
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder -- Carnation
1 1/2 cups Yoplait plain fat-free yogurt -- (you may try less), * see tips
1 cup Cool Whip Lite
1 (6 oz) Keebler Shortbread piecrust

"Even if you enjoyed a hearty meal, here's a perfect dessert to serve that's as frothy and light as it is lusciously fruity! I know it seems odd to toss the skin and seed of a lime into your blender, but they add so much intense citrusy goodness, you'll be delighted at the result."

1. In a blender container, combine Diet Mountain Dew and lime chunks. Cover and process on BLEND for 60 seconds or until lime pieces almost disappear. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine dry pudding mix, dry gelatin, and dry milk powder. Add blended lime mixture and yogurt. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/4 cup Cool Whip Lite. Spread pudding mixture into piecrust. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. Drop remaining Cool Whip Lite by tablespoons to form 8 mounds. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Cut into 8 servings. Freezes Well.

Diane's Tips *:
1. Posted to the message boards at the Healthy Exchanges Website: Some of us who have made this pie had trouble with it setting up. Do a little, if you have this problem.
2. Some had a bitter taste with the whole lime. Use a peeler, I would prefer a fine grater, and use the rind only, taking care not to use the white pith. Then add the inside flesh to the blender and process. (I didn't have a bitter taste)
3. And if it doesn't set up, put it into dessert cups and enjoy. This will be a great summer pie recipe when those temperatures start climbing, I might even freeze it to enjoy that way.
4. Try Diet 7up instead of the Diet Mountain Dew.

Default Creamy Pie

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share what I thinkis a great recipe. I found this on the back inside cover of the current WW Magazine. I made it for my family, everyone loved it, not just the WW followers! THis recipe makes 8 servings at only 3 points each!

5-Minute Key Lime Pie

1 Ready Crust Reduced fat Graham cracker crust
1 pkg. (4 serving size) sugar-free lime jello
1/4c boiling water
2 containers (6 oz) fat-free key lime yogurt
1 tub (8 oz) Fat-free whipped topping, thawed

1. In a large, heat-resistant bowl, dissolve jello in boiling water. Stir in yogurt with wire whisk. Fold in whipped topping with wooden spoon.

2. Spread in crust. Refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours.

3. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate leftovers.

This was great, I also tried making different flavors. Strawberry-Banana was terrific!

If the pie is cut into 8 pieces, three points a slice.
