Low Fat Key Lime Dessert


1/2 cups fat free sweetened condensed milk

2 large uncooked egg yolks

2 tsp. butter, divided

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 pinch salt

1/2 cup aerosol spray whipped cream

1 Tbl. lime zested, optional for presentation


In a small, heavy bottomed sauce pan, combine milk and egg yolks; heat over medium-low heat, whisking continuously, until mixture begins to boil, about 5 minutes.
