It's been about a year since I started this blog. A lot has changed for me since then, but what hasn't changed is my love for Hungry Girl recipes. While I currently have very limited time to write my blog, I am keeping it available so you can use it as a resource for Hungry Girl recipe reviews. Since most of my time goes towards my two jobs, my family, and training for a half marathon, my posting will be limited for the time being.
More than any other food, dessert is definitely my weakness. I have a very big sweet tooth, and feel completely deprived if I don't have at least something sweet after dinner. I am always looking for a yummy dessert that satisfies my craving for something sweet, but doesn't have a ton of calories. Usually I opt for single-serving ice cream bars, like Healthy Choice Fudge Bars, Skinny Cow Truffle Bars, or Weight Watchers Bars. I find that if I get single-serving items, I'm not tempted to sit there and eat a huge bowl of ice cream. Even if I buy the slow-churned half gallon of ice cream, I find myself having more than just one serving and going over my points for the day. Chocolate is an especially big weakness of mine, and I am always on the hunt for a satisfying, low point chocolate dessert.
I decided to try this dessert because it is only 2 points+, and because I love key lime pie. I sat down to eat it with my 2-year-old son to see if it received his stamp of approval. It did!
While it tasted more like a lime jello concoction than key lime pie, it was still good nonetheless. It was sweet, fluffy, with crunchy graham crackers on top. Since it was already mixed with Cool Whip, I didn't feel the need to add additional whipped topping or whipped cream on top. My son "ate it all gone", as he said, and I did, too! I would make this again if I was in the mood for jello, but not if I was craving key lime pie.
