My favorite flavor at the local frozen yogurt shop is key lime pie. So when I was trying to come up with ways to make the decadent dessert a little lighter, I thought to add some yogurt! I was a little skeptical at first, thinking it would no longer taste like a dessert, but no! The tangy yogurt paired perfectly with the tart lime. Give these a try yourself!
-Juice of 2-2 1/2 limes
-Zest of 1 lime
-3/4 cup plain yogurt
-300 ml (10 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
Graham Cracker Crust:
-3 oz. graham crackers
-2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
-2 teaspoons sugar
-3/4 cup cold heavy cream
-1 tablespoon granulated sugar
-Lime zest or crushed graham crackers, optional
For the crust: place the graham crackers in a food processor and process until the crackers are fine crumbs. If you don't own a food processor, simply place the crackers into a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin-then add into a bowl to combine with the remaining ingredients. Pour in the melted butter and the sugar and pulse to combine. Add a few tablespoons of the mixture into each of 4 small plastic glasses. Press into the cup with the back of a spoon. Set aside.
For the lime layer: Combine the yogurt and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Add in the lime zest and juice, stir to combine. Fill each cup 3/4 of the way with the mixture, set aside.
For the whipped cream: Place the cream into a large bowl, whip on medium speed until soft peaks are formed. Add the sugar, whip to combine. Place a dollop of whipped cream onto each cup. Place in the fridge for an hour before serving. Top each with crushed graham crackers or lime zest, if desired. Enjoy!
