this Creamy Lime Pie seems just right for both the health conscious crowd...


for those, such as myself, who prefer filling their calorie quota with PORK BELLY and other various savory indulgences.

this creamy cheesecake looking pie is just right for a light dessert...breakfast even.  all sweet and smooth with a little tang and that graham cracker-ish crust, but it's all good for ya.  made with Fiber One Yogurt, a little lite cream cheese and Fiber One Cereal.
it might look like cheesecake, act like a cheesecake, but you'll know it's yogurt so don't try to pass it off as "cheesecake". 
BUT, i must WILL have yourself a fabulous guilt-free dessert with plenty of room for that late night snack of baby back ribs slathered in extra BBQ sauce.

Creamy Vanilla Lime Yogurt Cheesecake pie
slightly adapted from Fiber One

2 cups Fiber One original bran cereal
1/4 cup melted butter
1 Tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla

1 Tbsp cold water
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1/2 tsp lemon extract
4 containers Yoplait Fiber One vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup frozen (thawed) reduced fat whipped topping
1 Tbsp grated lime zest

preheat oven to 350 F.

finely crush the bran cereal in a food processor until it resembles graham cracker crumbs.
in a medium bowl, mix crust ingredients until blended.  press mixture evenly and firmly in bottom and up sides of a 9" pie plate.  bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until firm.  cool completely, about an hour

in a 1 qt. sauce pan, mix water and lime juice.  sprinkle gelatin on lime/water mixture and let stand for 1 -2 minutes.  heat over low heat until gelatin is dissolved.  cool slightly about 2 minutes
NOTE...i did this step in a small glass bowl and then the microwave

in a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.  add yogurt, extract and lime juice/gelatin mixture and beat until smooth and well blended.  fold in whipped topping and lime zest.  spoon onto crust.  refrigerate until set...about 2-3 hours
