This is a great substiute for the 'real' thing. My weight loss support group was mourning the loss of their favorite dessert so I came up with this low carb version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soften cream cheese in mixing bowl (you can nuke it on medium in the microwave for about 2 minutes), Blend in lime juice and Splenda.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir the boiling water into the Jello until it is completely dissolved.
  3. SLOWLY blend Jello mixture with the cream cheese mixture until blended.
  4. Add the cold water and the lime zest immediately and mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour into pie pan and refrigerate at least one hour.
  6. Cut into eight slices and serve with a dollop of Reddi Whip.

Made this for the family and they liked it, but weren't raving. I didn't think it tasted anything like Key Lime Pie, although the taste was fairly pleasant. I also added 8 packets of Splenda, not six, and was glad, because it wasn't overly sweet.

Made it for supper and I could really taste salt in the cream cheese. The next day I took it to work and it was GREAT. If I were to make it again I would make it the day before serving.

This was really good & easy to make. It tastes like it would be more "sinful" for an Atkin's follower, but not. I also tried this with strawberry jello instead, omitting the lime zest & lime juice & it was still really good. I believe I'll experiment with this recipe further & with more jello flavors.
