Key lime pie seems to be the dessert of the moment. I’m seeing dessert specials all over the place featuring it, and I even saw a key lime cupcake in my FB newsfeed this weekend. I love key lime pie, but I don’t love the effort to make it. I also can’t imagine a dairy free version that would turn out well, so I definitely don’t need an entire key lime pie hanging around for me to eat.
Sooooo, being me… I got to thinking about the ingredients and I came up with a fun version. I’m calling it a key lime s’more because s’more sounds much better than graham cracker sandwich. Officially I don’t count it as a s’more if there is no chocolate. But call it what you want. I call it good. 😉
Key Lime Pie Protein S’mores
- 3/4 cup (170g) nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 scoop (17g) vanilla protein powder
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 honey graham crackers
Mix the yogurt, protein powder, and lime juice in a small bowl and freeze for about 30 minutes until it thickens a bit. Break the two graham crackers in half to form 4 squares. Split the yogurt between two of the squares and top with the remaining two. Freeze for a couple hours before enjoying.
Makes 2 sandwiches at 146 calories each – 15g protein, 17g carbs, and 2g fat.
You can make a non-protein version by leaving out the protein powder. If you go this route, add in about a 1 tsp of sugar or stevia so that it’s not tart. All that lime juice and yogurt creates quite a tang, and you need some sweetness to balance it out.
Have fun with your sandwich and roll it in white chocolate chips, nuts, cocoa powder, sprinkles or other fun stuff. It’s the perfect dessert and nowhere near as bad as eating an entire pie. 😉
