Ingredients

For the Fruity Pebbles crust:

  • 2 ½ Cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup butter, melted

For the honey-lime filling:

  • 1 8-ounce block cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 6-ounce container plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ Cup honey
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • ½ Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup thawed whipped topping, for garnish
  • ¼ Cup Fruity Pebbles cereal, for garnish
  • Lime twist, for garnish

Directions

For the Fruity Pebbles crust:

In a food processor, grind cereal into a fine powder.  Combine ground cereal, sugar, and salt in medium sized bowl.  Stir in the melted butter until thoroughly blended.

Pack mixture firmly into a 9-inch pie pan and press firmly to bottom and sides, bringing crumbs evenly up to the rim.

Chill 1 hour before filling.

For the honey-lime filling:

With an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, yogurt, honey, lime zest, and vanilla until well combined and fluffy, 5 minutes. Spoon into the prepared pie crust and smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

When ready to serve, top each slice with a dollop of thawed whipped topping, a sprinkling of cereal, and a twist of lime.

Lime Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lime Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
