Make Healthy Key Lime Pie

My husband loves key lime pie, actually anything flavored with lime. So I had to remake this classic pie into a simple, fresh, and lightened up version. The prep time takes less then ten minutes, and the hardest part about this recipe is waiting for it to set up. So what I did to lighten this recipe up is: 1- In the crust I removed the sugar. I don’t think adding sugar to the crust is necessary. It's already sweet enough as is, and that’s saying something as I have the world’s biggest sweet tooth. 🙂 2- I replaced the butter in the crust with low fat butter. This is such a simple switch, and saves 30 grams of fat for the crust alone. You cant even tell its light butter vs regular butter. 3- Most recipes ask for two cans of sweet and condensed milk, I think one can is plenty. This is a tart dessert so adding additional sweetener to this is not necessary. 4- I swapped sour crew for plain Greek yogurt. This still gives it that tart and smooth properties that the sour cream gives, but instead adds protein. I hope you enjoy and if you make it tag me on social so I can see. Also let me know your thoughts on how you liked it. :)
