Key Lime Pie Tart Recipe - Weight Watchers 2 Points

Posted By: Leah

This is my real-life super delicious
and awesome recipe for Key Lime Pie Tarts!
Only 2 Points Plus+ (if you're on weight watchers)

  • 8 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1/8 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Tbsp, lime juice (or more to taste)
  • 8 oz Fat Free Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 2 Tsp, Sugar-Free Lime Jell-O (optional, I only used it for color)
  • 25% Less-Fat Graham Cracker Crust
Yield: 15

For Lauren's birthday this year instead of the delicious yet bad for you funfetti cupcakes I usually make, I remembered that she loves key lime cheesecake. I found a recipe (and adapted it to be extra healthy) and it's delicious! seriously!

All you do is throw the block of cream cheese, sugar and lime juice in a bowl. Use your mixer and whip it up for a few minutes on low until it's super smooth. Then fold in 6 oz of your cool whip and mix on low for a few seconds until it's blended.

I had some lime jell-o and put just a little in, to give it a smidgen of green color. Totally not necessary. Then place baking cups into a cupcake tin. I broke up the graham cracker crust and placed pieces at the bottom of the baking cups. I scooped the key lime mixture on top, then added a dollop of the remaining cool whip.

I had enough for 15 individual servings. I sprinkled the remaining graham cracker crust around the top, and it looked really cute!

Plus of course... It tastes delicious! A little more 'fluffy' than key lime pie (less of cheesecake texture). But according to Courtney (who was just in Key West for her honeymoon in october), she likes my version BETTER! YES!!!

These keep really well, you can freeze them or keep them in the refrigerator.
