Frozen Key Lime Pie

This is a "Helen Housewife Recipe". What is that, you ask?

Helen Housewife Recipe : def
n. 1. Food consisting of a can of this,
a package of that. 
        2. Definitely not made from scratch.

Sorry, I try to be good and make everything by hand but sometimes a girl just has to make life a bit easier and besides, this is awesome. I keep this in the freezer for drop-in guests. (who am I kidding? We scarf down the whole thing in one sitting)
The ingredients are simple and few:  frozen pie crust, lime yoghurt, Cool Whip and a couple of limes. You can make your own pie crust but I never saw the point. (I use fat free Cool Whip and yoghurt to ease my conscience and waistline)

Let the Cool Whip defrost. Bake the crust and let it cool. Grate one of the limes with a microplane. Gently fold the yoghurt, Cool Whip and lime zest together until thoroughly mixed. You may want to add a drop or two of green and yellow food coloring for effect. Pour into pie crust. Freeze.
Place it in the fridge about an hour before serving. Slice a lime very thin, then cut in half.
Place on top of each piece of pie and wait for the applause. 
In case you hadn't guessed, you can make a lemon version too.

This pie is also good using peach or strawberry yogurt with small cut up pieces of the fruit in it.

I don't know what Cool Whip is (I'm British and I don't think we have it here) but the pie looks yummy, and so easy to make :)

One of our favorites, even if it's all "artificial." We use graham cracker crust.
