Amy’s Quick and Easy Key Lime Pie

Yesterday I went to go visit my friend Amy. We were going to do some baking but we decided it was just way to hot, even early in the morning. So rather than turning on the oven, Amy decided to make a quick and easy no-bake key lime pie instead.

This easy-peasy pie only requires a few simple ingredients and just a few minutes of your time to make.

1 small box of lime jello

1 cup of boiling wat water

2 9-inch graham cracker pie crusts

1 tub of Cool Whip or whipped cream topping

2 -8 oz containers of lime Greek yogurt

Boil the water to a full rapid boil, then mix in the Jell-O mix. Add the yogurt and whisk it in completely.

Once the yogurt is mixed in thoroughly, add the Cool Whip and gently fold in to the mixture.

Once everything is combined, carefully pour the mixture into the graham cracker crusts.

Then cover with plastic wrap and set it in the refrigerator to set and chill for at least 4 hours before eating. You can also add some more whipped cream to the top as well for a little more pizzazz if you like. Once it is set, all that is left to do is to slice it up and enjoy.

We had some special helpers as we were making this cool and refreshing summer dessert too. Amy’s kids and puppies were helping us in the kitchen, making sure we did everything just right.

Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
