This is my new favorite treat. This Key Lime Pie Dip tastes like summer….if summer could be a taste. 🙂
I looked up how many points a slice of key lime pie is on the WW app. Would you believe it said 22 points!?
There’s no way I was going to spend that many points on a slice of pie. Instead, I decided to make my own key lime treat.
The best part is this Key Lime Pie Dip is only 2 Freestyle points per serving. There are 8 servings which are 1/4 cup each. That’s 1/4 cup of dip for only 2 Freestyle points!
I can honestly say I have never bought a key lime before. I know that they are smaller and lighter in color than the typical limes I usually buy.
I wasn’t in the mood to juice a bunch of key limes, so instead I bought some key lime juice. I found it at the grocery store in the juice isle. The brand I bough was Nellie & Joes.
Making the dip is super easy. I started by using a hand mixer to mix together the reduced-fat cream cheese and key lime juice.
Once it was nice and smooth I added the Splenda and mixed it again.
Then it was time to add the Cool Whip. You want to be careful not to over-stir the Cool Whip. I added a small scoop of Cool Whip to the cream cheese mixture. Once it was blended together I folded in the rest of the Cool Whip.
The final step was to add a teaspoon of lime zest. I just used a regular lime for this.
You can serve the dip right away, or put it in the fridge for later. I served my dip with graham crackers. The hard part is not eating all of the dip!
Yield: 8 servings (2 Freestyle points per serving)
- 3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons key lime juice
- 2 tablespoons granulated Splenda
- 4 oz. fat-free Cool Whip
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
Add reduced fat cream cheese and key lime juice to a mixing bowl. Use a hand held mixer to blend them together until creamy.
Add the Splenda and combine with the hand held mixer.
Add the Cool Whip, a small amount at a time. Gently stir together, do not over-stir.
Sprinkle the lime zest onto the dip.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.
