EASY Key Lime Pie

This dessert is so light and so stinking good that seriously, you might want to eat the entire pie by yourself...I wanted to, but didn't...although the thought DID cross my mind on several occasions. This amazing Key Lime Pie is perfect for summer...maybe because its made from lime and lime reminds me of all things fresh and summery. Enjoy this at your next backyard barbecue or just enjoy it as a nice summer treat.

EASY Key Lime Pie

8 oz. extra creamy whipped topping (any brand works)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. lime juice
1 prepared 9" pie shell (could make from scratch or buy frozen and cook the shell, I made mine from scratch)
lime green food coloring (I actually had some LIME green food coloring, but you could use yellow and green mixed together)

Combine whipped topping, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Whip with electric mixer until smooth. Squirt in several drops of food coloring until you get the desired "greenish/yellow" color. You don't want it to be too green or it looks like it should taste like mint...not too yellowish or you will think it should taste like lemon...there is a happy medium in there somewhere. I just kept putting a few drops in and stirring it up until I was happy with the color!

Pour mixture into prepared pie shell and chill for at least 2 hours OR overnight. Top with whipped topping when your ready to serve but only if you want, I didn't and it tasted DIVINE!
