    FloridaNative's Note:

    This sounds really good -- I haven't made it yet, but the steps are quick and easy. We love key lime pie, and a lime trifle sounds like the next best thing. From a recipe card courtesy of my neighborhood Publix grocery store. Enjoy! Being diabetic, I would also try this with Splenda (instead of sugar), just to see how it turns out. NOTE: Cook/prep time DOES NOT include 2 hour chill time!

      Very tasty, but watch what size Cool Whip you use, mine was only an 8 oz container and the lime taste was somewhat strong. That said, I also used almost 1/3 cup Key Lime juice because I didn't have enough fresh lime juice. I'll use all fresh next time and use enough Cool Whip!! Also, I might add a drop of green food color b/c the color is all similar. Made for ZWT7 Count Dracula and his Hot Bites.
