Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Add boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to make 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is melted.
  • Whisk in COOL WHIP, zest and juice. Refrigerate 15 min. or until mixture is thick enough to mound. Spoon into crust.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.

Makeover - How We Did It

We've taken a classic pie and given it a makeover. We omitted the eggs and condensed milk to give this pie a fluffier texture. The tart lime filling is made with JELL-O Lime Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin, COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping and fresh lime zest and juice. These small changes result in a savings of 170 calories and 7.5 grams of fat per serving.

Special Extra

Garnish with thin lime wedges and/or additional lime zest.

Lemon Chiffon Pie

Prepare as directed, using JELL-O Lemon Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin, lemon zest and lemon juice.

I didn't have the lime, so I substituted with strawberry (strawberry jell-o, with sliced strawberries mixed in). It was heavenly! My family ate the entire pie in 1 sitting (there were 5 of us) - minus one slice left over for today. Everyone loved it, and I'm going to try the lime next. It would be great to trade out flavors - lime, orange, raspberry, cherry, whatever you can dream up. Experiment! I didn't have any problems with waiting for the mixture to firm up enough to mound like some of the others below, but I did freeze it for the last ½ hour before I served it, and that was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe! Great recipe! I have had trouble once making it with the COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping (listed in the ingredients) rather than the regular COOL WHIP. It came out fine, but after eating it and saving the rest for later in the refrigerator, the pie became runny and slowly melted. I had been told by others that it may have been its lack in fat and or sugar. I'm not sure, maybe just that time it was me messing it up. Besides that, I have been making it with regular Cool Whip and have had wonderful and delicious results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this pie for a friend who has diabetes, and must watch sugar intake. I made this pie for a friend who has diabetes, and must watch sugar intake. He was very surprised at the great taste, and everyone else liked the pie as well. The only thing I personally noticed was a hint of bitterness from the sugar free jello, but still a wonderful choice for a summer dessert. I am going to make this again, and may try the lemon next time. I didn't put the lime zest in, and the pie still tasted good..I think the zest might have made it too intense for my liking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a hit at a BIG dinner I hosted a few months back. This was a hit at a BIG dinner I hosted a few months back. It's delicate and light, which is great when you would like dessert, but don't want something heavy. It's flavorful, but watch out for the bitter pie filling under the lime slices....it always makes me pucker. For ease and speed of preparation, I would rate this a two, with one being the fastes and least complicated. This is a great recipe if you're serving to anyone with food allergies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY GOOD! VERY GOOD! made this recipe for my boyfriend tonight and it turned out better then expected (wasnt sure how the jello and cool whip would set). Had no trouble in making the pie, left it in the fridge for about 30 minutes and it was ready to put in the crust. It tasted great! and theres only one tiny piece left :) definitely will make again using otehr flavors of jello (I used strawberrry with bits of strawberry chunks mixed in and on top)

By my own mistake, I added 1 2/3 cups of hot water to the jello mix so I couldn't add the ice water for fear of watering the dessert down. So, the cooling process was stalled and resulted in a thin (maybe 1/2") layer of lime jello underneath a smooth creamy limy cool whip blend.. Looked like a lime menengue pie. I also used vanilla cool whip and it was very tasty. I'm making this again! the right way!

I am not sure why this recipe has made it to the magazine as a "cool dessert"; honestly this recipe needs to be overhauled. I consider myself a very good cook: myself, friends, and family found this recipe to lack a desireable texture and the taste was, well horrible. Yes, healthy and low calorie is nice but this misses the mark. Time and money were both wasted in this recipe.

REGARDING: DIVIDED COOL WHIP From Amy, Kraft Rep I have contacted the Kraft Kitchens as to what the correct directions should be for the Lime Chiffon Pie. The correct directions are: 2 cups Cool Whip The "divided" is a modifier and should not be there. The Kitchens is now aware of the error and has made corrections for the next time the website gets updated (in about 2 months).
