No-Bake Key Lime Yogurt Pie

Key Lime Yogurt Pie adds probiotics to a tasty summer dessert that is no-bake!  Time for a guilt-free  snack?Key Lime Yogurt Pie adds probiotics to a tasty summer treat for a light pie without the guilt!

I used to think I didn’t like citrus desserts. Perhaps I had one too many lemon bars growing up… 

But there was a very distinct turning point. And it all revolved around key lime pie.

Key Lime Yogurt Pie

A decade or so ago, I was on the leadership committee for my employers United Performing Arts Fund campaign.

When we finished up a very successful round of fund raising, there was a reward. A night in the company’s luxury box for a Milwaukee Brewer’s Game. Sign me up!

Served

I don’t remember much about most of the food or drink—or even the game, except that we enjoyed everything! But dessert still stands out.

My piece!

Left up to me, dessert would have been brownies, so I sighed when the key lime pie arrived.  Still in my no-citrus-dessert days, I bravely took a piece. 

I expected to have a borderline taste experience–instead it was heaven. Whoda thought!

Serving up the Key Lime Yogurt Pie

I have been obsessed ever since, making treats like Key Lime Meringue Pie and Key Lime Cookies (coming up on the blog).  Clearly, I needed to find some way to make my lime desserts just a little healthier.

So, this week I took my recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Pie and converted it to Key Lime Yogurt Pie. Now if you don’t have key limes, don’t worry—ordinary limes will do just fine.  Light, fluffy, flavorful and no-bake even, this may be the pick hit of the summer!

And when you reach for your piece, repeat after me Probiotics are Healthy. Happy summer!

      I think we had key lime pie 3 times in our week in Florida last January so I know what you mean! Not that I was complaining 🙂

    I adore key lime. I am sure I will be making this for something before the end of summer. Your photos are making me want a piece for breakfast! 🙂

    I love key lime anything. The hubs not so much. I wonder if I can bake and take this. I’d have to use some freezer packs to keep it cool. Definitely worth it so I can have some.

      Because it has gelatin, it is more stable than some chilled dishes Christie. Sorry for the late reply but my spam folder ate your comment. Silly spam folder
