Easy Key Lime Pie
By Morgan Smith
Hello and welcome back to The Egg Burner! In light of recent events, we all could use a pick-me-up. Why not lighten the mood in your household by whipping up an easy key lime pie? Both your family and your sweet tooth will thank you.
Key Lime Pie
Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes (Active Time: 20 minutes)
The equipment needed is minimal:
- Mixing bowl of some sort
- Mixing spoon
On top of that, the ingredients are incredibly simple:
- ¼ cup boiling water (equivalent to 4 tablespoons)
- 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (6 ounces)
- 1 package (3 ounces) sugar-free lime gelatin
- 2 containers (6 ounces each) key lime yogurt
- 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen fat-free whipped topping
To start off, I boiled the ¼ cup of water in a pan.
Once the water was boiling, I poured it into a mixing bowl and combined it with the lime gelatin. I stirred for about two minutes to completely dissolve the gelatin.
Once the gelatin was dissolved, I mixed in the containers of key lime yogurt.
Once the yogurt was mixed in, I folded in the whipped topping.
Once all the ingredients were combined, I poured the mixture into the graham cracker crust.
Finally, I placed the pie in the fridge for two hours to set.
Voila! There you have it – a stress-relieving, delicious, drown your sorrows about classes being cancelled for the semester, key lime pie!
In all seriousness, Kent State has taken precautionary measures for a reason. No matter your feelings about everything going on, take proper safety measures, wash your hands and stay safe out there! And remember: Flashes take care of Flashes. 🙂
