Healthy Key Lime Tarts #Recipe


Each one of these Key Lime Tarts only has 5 grams of fat and 235 calories. Now the ones with Cool Whip have a few more calories, although I did use Low Fat. My husband and son like those.


It’s surprising how good these are even though there’s hardly any calories! I just love key lime pies, tarts and all, so I wanted to find a way to make them so they’re not so fattening.


I really like having these small tarts already made up and in the refrigerator. They’re great for dessert, snacks, or surprise guests. They have just the right amount of sweet and sour taste!  Note: If you want, you can buy the little graham cracker pans, already filled beside the big ones in the store.  It is a lot easier.

Did you know that limes have a lot of health benefits?  Limes, bearing the scientific name Citrus Aurantifolia, has been used for ages in the treatment of various ailments.  They  include weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, eye care, and treatment of scurvy, piles, peptic ulcer, respiratory disorders, gout, gums, urinary disorders, and more.

Limes are consumed throughout the world in the form of sorbet, beverages, refreshing cocktails, pickles, jams, jellies, snacks, candies, sugar boiled confections and in cooking.  The oil extracted from its peel or skin is extensively used in soft drink concentrates, body oils, cosmetic products, hair oils, toothpastes, toilet and beauty soaps, disinfectants, mouth washes, deodorants and innumerable other products. There are many varieties of lime found all over the world, particularly in the tropical and the Mediterranean climates.

According to the American Diabetes Association, limes and other citrus fruits are considered a diabetes super food for a number of reasons. Mainly, the high levels of soluble fiber found in limes make it an ideal dietary aid to help regulate the body’s absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, reducing the occurrence of blood sugar spikes that are a serious risk to to diabetic patients.
