You might be thinking, wait is this a cheesecake or cream pie? It’s both and it is delicious! A nice simple refreshing dessert that everyone can enjoy, including you.

Serves: 8
 
8SP blue, green & purple
Ingredients
  • 1 ready made graham pie crust
  • 8oz light cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • 1 heaping cup fat free cool whip
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime zest
Instructions
  1. In a bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the cheese, icing sugar, cool whip and lime juice till well blended. Stir in the lime zest, leaving a little aside to sprinkle on top.
  2. Pour filling into the graham crust then let set in the fridge for at least 4 hours, you can even prep this the night before just cover it with some foil if you do.
  3. The texture will be much creamier than a regular cheesecake and if you do not let it set long enough it will be too hard to cut into servings.

    Oh my gosh, it looks amazing! So tender and moist! It practically makes my mouth water! No matter if it is a cream pie or a cheesecake – it’s delicious anyway. I’m afraid, it’s the end of my diet ahaha 😀 I’m gonna buy all the ingredients on the weekends and make this lime pie. I’ll let you know how I like it.
    Thank you for sharing such wonderful recipes, Kate! And Happy New Year!

    Hi There!

    Just wondering, I put all the ingredients in my weight watchers app and it shows
    the points to be 10 and I noticed you have 8. Do you know for sure this recipe is
    8 pts. cuz it sure looks good and I want to make but I want to make sure I track
    the right points. I am on the blue plan.
    Thanks so much!
    Erin

      Hi Erin, all I can go off is what my WW app tells me when I enter the ingredients, perhaps you used a different brand of ingredient? Here is a breakdown in my points, cream cheese- 20, cool whip- 7, graham crust- 30 and icing sugar- 6 hope that helps
