  • 12 squares low-fat honey graham crackers, finely crushed (1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • teaspoon sugar
  • 10.3-ounce package sugar-free low-calorie lime-flavored gelatin
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese
  • 18-ounce container reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel) or fat-free cream cheese, cut up and softened
  • 18-ounce container frozen light or fat-free whipped dessert topping, thawed
  • Key limes or limes, cut into wedges (optional)


  1. In a small bowl combine graham crackers, butter, and sugar. Press crumb mixture in the bottom of a 2-quart square baking dish. Refrigerate while preparing the filling.
  2. In a large bowl combine gelatin and water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Set aside.
  3. In blender or food processor combine cottage cheese and cream cheese. Cover and blend or process until smooth, stopping several times to scrape down sides. Whisk 1/2 cup of the cottage cheese mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk in remaining cottage cheese mixture until smooth. Fold in whipped dessert topping. Spoon filling over chilled crumb mixture.
  4. Cover and chill 8 to 24 hours or until filling is firm. To serve, cut into squares. Top with lime wedges
