Reduced-Fat Icebox Key Lime Pie
From Cook's Country
We combined neufchatel cheese (a type of cream cheese with one-third less fat) with fat-free Greek yogurt for a creamy Reduced-Fat Icebox Key Lime Pie. The tanginess from the yogurt also enhanced the lime flavor, letting us cut back on the number of limes. Tasters found that fat-free sweetened condensed milk was almost indistinguishable from its full-fat counterpart. To further cut calories, we eliminated half the sugar in the crust before any of our tasters complained about a lack of sweetness. We reduced the amount of butter in the crust by mixing it with some of the neufchatel. This combination held the crust together without making it gummy.
Traditional recipes have 445 calories, 22 grams of fat, and 14 grams of saturated fat per slice. Our changes brought the numbers down to 307 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 5 grams of saturated fat.
Greek yogurt gives our pie a creamy texture; don’t substitute for it.
