I love Key lime pie – a slice of the summer dessert topped with whipped cream. Who doesn’t? 

It’s rich and creamy. It’s also full of sugar and fat. 

I’ve been watching what I eat and choosing healthier alternatives that are just as delicious. 

That’s where this no-bake recipe comes into play.

Are Key Lime Parfaits Healthy?

These Key lime yogurt parfaits are low in fat and high in protein. 

No condensed milk, no added sugar and no cream cheese. Instead, I used Key lime flavored Greek yogurt. 

I was pleasantly surprised how much this sweet treat tasted like the real thing.

Sweet, tart and creamy. Just like Key lime pie is supposed to taste, only healthier. 

There are many yogurt brands and varieties to choose from at your local grocery. I selected one low in sugar.

How to make Key lime yogurt parfaits with granola

First I added lime zest and a splash of key lime juice to the yogurt. Next, I crumpled honey flavored graham crackers and mixed it in to my homemade granola. Then I created layers of the yogurt and granola graham cracker mix to create my parfait. Finally, I topped each glass with a dollop of low sugar whipped cream and fresh berries. 

The graham crackers added the sweetness I needed to make this taste like traditional Key lime pie. 

My homemade granola recipe is quite versatile and easy to adjust the amount of sugar to your preference. 

These fruit and yogurt layered parfaits tasted like mini Key lime pies or tarts only healthier. 

These individual parfaits are perfect for summer get-togethers, and any leftovers can be saved for breakfast the next morning. Serve them in individual trifle bowls or mason jars.
