This is a recipe my mom had from many years ago that she dug up when she and I began attending Weight Watchers together in January 2010. It was a nice low-cal treat, with 197 calories for a 1/8 slice and 5 of the original Weight Watchers points.
When we tried this recipe again a few weeks ago, Ben initially refused to eat it, noting that it didn’t hold a candle to his all-time favorite key lime pie made by Mrs. Elliott, the mother of our friend Mike. Later, after we put it in the freezer and he agreed to try it with an open mind — which is to say, without visualizing Mrs. Elliott’s pie but simply having a Skinny Cow-style frozen dessert — he found it much more palatable.
And now that we’ve started another family weight-loss contest, all these Skinny Cow-style frozen dessert recipes are coming in extremely handy.
Weight Watchers Key Lime Pie
1 small container fat-free Cool Whip
1 small box sugar-free lime Jell-o.
1/4 cup boiling water
2 8-ounce lite lime yogurt
1 pre-made reduced fat graham cracker crust
Dissolve Jello in boiling water. Wisk in yogurt, then fold in Cool Whip with a wooden spoon. Pour into crust and refrigerate (or better yet, freeze) for at least 2 hours.
Per 1/8 of pie: 197 calories, 9 grams of fat, 0 fiber, 5 (original) Weight Watchers points.
