RECIPE | FIT KEY LIME PIE W/ COCONUT CREAM TOPPING

I love this Key Lime Pie recipe. I modified a family favorite recipe to use low sugar cookies or homemade crust, Greek yogurt (protein), to use stevia, a plant based sweetener or a small amount of coconut sugar, ghee or butter from a grass fed cow instead of margarine and lots of fresh lime juice for added vitamin C

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups Low sugar cookie such as reduced fat / low sugar graham crackers or shortbread. Crushed in plastic bag or food processor
  • 5 Tbs. butter from grass fed cows such as Kerrygold or ghee

Filling: 

  • 2 cups FAGE greek yogurt or similar (make sure no sugar, and better if not non fat)
  • 1 cup reduced fat, non fat or dairy free cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sweetener such as stevia, coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice

Whipped Topping:

  • Coconut Cream: 1 can chilled coconut milk (you will be using ONLY the coconut cream that separates in the can) Use can opener

  2. In a bowl add crushed cookies and melted butter. Mix. 
  3. Press into pie pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap
  4. Add filling ingredients to blender, blend until smooth. Pour onto pie crust. Bake 45 min. until middle is set.
