This recipe is so-o-o simple and so delicious and even if you are diabetic you can still enjoy by just using Splenda instead of sugar! I started making this when I was on the Atkins Diet years ago--my one indulgence! You also can use bottled Key Lime Juice, but I promise you it just doesn't taste quite as good as the real deal!
