"My mom made this dessert for Thanksgiving the first year I was a Weight Watcher and it went better then the pecan or pumpking pies. 3 points per serving. Sorry, this recipe isn't core."
Serving Size: 1 (36 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"A huge favourite at our house, using other flavours of jello as well. I make it without the crust, and sometimes add some co-ordinating pieces of fresh fruit (raspberries with raspberry jello, etc.) This is such a satisfying dessert for so few calores."
"I've used this recipe for many years with great success. My friends and family especially like it using orange gelatin & yogurt... it tastes like a creansicle! But I usually make it without the pie crust and serve it as "mousse" in small glass dishes or a large crystal bowl (double thr recipe) topped with additional whipped topping - and using fat free and/or sugar free whipped topping, it's only 1 point."
"Great dessert (even if you aren't on Weight Watchers). I served this to company and it was a hit. It was nice having a lighter dessert after our meal. Instead of making a pie I put the filling into parfait glasses, topped with a few graham cracker crumbs and served it ... we didn't miss the pie at all. I'll be experimenting with other flavors ... orange, lemon ... the possibilities are endless!!!"
"Light & delicious & look forward to to changing it around with different Jello/yogurt. If anyone else has difficulty figuring out the 1/16ounce jello as I did it works with 0.3oz (8.5g). i had a box of lime jello that is 3oz and had to figure out the proper weight for the jello which again is 0.3oz(8.5g) and it worked just fine."
"Yummy! Made this with sugar free lime jello, sf cool whip and dannons light & fit key lime pie yogurt! I just crumbled some graham crackers and sprinkled them on top before serving. Tasty treat guiltfree sensation!!"
"This is very yummy and easy. I don't "do piecrusts" so I made it like a mousse pudding. I used 1/2 cup hot water and 3 containers of yogurt to make it less stiff. The fun is in choosing and mixing different flavors of jello with yogurts. Lemon jello mixed with pineapple/mango/passion fruit yogurt has a tropical flavor. Lemon and lemon tastes like lemon chiffon pie. Cherry and cherry is especially good. Using a better quality yogurt makes a difference. I keep a container in the frig for light snacking or dessert. It goes fast and no guilt. Thanks for the inspiration."
"I have made this recipe before. My whole family loves it. I always make whatever dessert they want for their birthday and this has been chosen more than once. I love using orange jello and vanilla yogurt, tastes just like a dreamcicle. I sometimes just make it in a bowl and dip graham crackers or vanilla wafers in it. VERY GOOD!"
"this was wonderful......Even the people that did not know they were eating weight watchers loved it..."
"Note that I just calculated the points plus on this recipe and I got 2! Yea!!"
"This pie is really good for something light and quick. Of course, it's not the rich key lime pie I would love to have, but it definitely worked for my weight watching plan. I'm sure I will make again. Thanks for posting!"
"Made this for Easter and all the non-WW were eating it. Now my daughter has requested it as her birthday pie..."
"Tada...like other reviewers this has become an instant hit with the family! Mother-in-law even said we could skip making pumpkin & pecan pies (sacrilege) at Thanksgiving. I've only made this with lemon gelatin & yogurt but I'm ready to try different combinations. Strawberry-Banana anyone?"
"Made this for our Mother's Day family party and it was wonderful!"
"Boy, was this ever good! I took a reviewer's advice and put it in the freezer. Tasted delicious. Thanks for introducing me to another WW dessert."
"I have made this several times. The lime version is great, but I also used raspberry jello with chocolate yogurt in a chocolate crust (so it is worth more points), orange jello and orange creamcycle yogurt, and my favorite, wil strawberry jello with strawberry banana yogiurt. This recipe is a whole lot of fun!"
"Couldn't believe that 5 minutes of hands-on time could get me such a delicious pie! So easy to make! I added some colored sprinkles on top of the pie just for fun. Would totally try without the crust next time as many reviewers suggested. Great recipe!!"
"I am on a bariatric diet and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! I don't add the crust, I just use it as a pudding cup. It satisfies my sweet tooth without blowing my diet."
"This is an all time favorite dessert----Try making it with Lemon or Strawberry!!!! The Key Lime is my "go-to" for St. Paddy's Day."
"Love this recipe. I had it a long time ago, when I was in Weight Watchers, & lost it. Yum. I made this recipe for my graduation class party @ Daytona State College, but I used a mini muffin pan, mini cupcake papers, put 1 tsp of crust mixture into each paper, gently pressed down witn my finger, & used a teaspoon to fill them. Refrigerated as recipe called for, sprinkled the left over graham cracker mixture over tops, and a tiny bit of dreamwhipto to add a little smile...they were awesome."
"I have been making this pie for over ten years, and you can't go wrong with it. People don't even realize it's sugar-free until I tell them."
