Easy as Pie Recipe

Here's a recipe that's "easy as pie". Ba-dum! I made two for the Mother's Day celebration at my sister's house on Sunday. The key lime was more of a hit than the pictured strawberry. This recipe is easy and a wonderfully low in fat. You can use any flavors you like, even mix and match. Since I don't have a red Ferrari, I can't use Ferrari parts as my RT post, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to post this recipe:

Ingredients:
* 1 reduced fat graham cracker crust
* 1 (1/16 ounce) package sugar-free lime gelatin
* 1/4 cup boiling water
* 1 (8 ounce) container fat-free whipped topping
* 2 (6 ounce) key lime pie yogurt

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water.
2. Stir in yogurt with wire whisk.
3. Fold in whipped topping with wooden spoon.
4. Spread in crust.
5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
6. Top with fresh fruit (if desired)

I think I'd go the key lime route - not a fan of strawberry myself... this makes me wanna make a no-bake cheesecake, though!
Now I'm craving something sweet!
