5 Minute Creamy Key Lime Pie

As the days get warmer, I find myself wanting to spend less and less time in the kitchen. Seriously, who wants to be slaving over a hot stove while the sun is shining and it is beautiful spring weather outside?! Not this lady!

I found this Key Lime Pie recipe on the back of a pre-made graham cracker crust package . . . who would have thought that there could be such great recipes there?! This creamy pie seriously only takes 5 minutes to throw together (time yourself! I dare you!) and tastes amazing . . . my husband was so thrilled to find it in the fridge after dinner and he couldn’t believe that I had spent so much time preparing dinner and still made this for dessert. 🙂
(Shh . . . don’t tell him I’m not super wife. It will be our little secret.)

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 package (4-serving size, I think it's 0.3 oz) sugar-free lime Jell-o*
  • 2 containers (6 oz each) Key Lime Pie yogurt (I used Yoplait)
  • 1 tub (8 oz) frozen non-dairy whipped topping (Cool-Whip), thawed
  • 1 pre-made graham cracker crust


  1. In a microwave-safe measuring cup, heat water for 45-90 seconds or until boiling. Whisk in Jell-o until dissolved.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together Jell-o mixture and yogurt. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread in crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set.
  3. Garnish as desired. Store in refrigerator.
  4. *I have never made this recipe using any other kind of Jell-o except for sugar free. I am not sure if it would work with regular Jell-o because the size of the packages are so much different.

  1. thanks for the reminder! I used to make this all of the time when on weight watchers...my doc is on my case, so this is a great reminder of how to make this treat...you don't have any ideas on calories do you? I can guess. ~ Kate
  2. In the Ingredients section of your post, when you say "1/4 water", what is the measurement? I'm not sure how to measure a fourth of water. Is it a fourth of the package of Jell-O? or a fourth of a pint of water, a fourth of a quart? a fourth of what? Sorry to be so lame but my husband does all the cooking around here and he wanted me to ask you for clarification please. Thank you so much!
  3. I've made this recipe a lot using all different flavors. Its fun to match up yogurt and jello flavors lol. Also someone wondered about using regular jello instead of sugar free...When using regular jello I increase the water to just barely a 1/2 cup of water to dissolve the jello . Right now I have a raspberry yogurt, cranberry jello flavor combo chilling in the fridge.

    I got this recipe on the back of the label on a graham cracker pie crust about 3-4 yrs ago. I have made it using all kind of flavors. It is yummy. I have always used sugar free gelatin, but I do think it will work with the regular.
