“This sounds really good -- I haven't made it yet, but the steps are quick and easy. We love key lime pie, and a lime trifle sounds like the next best thing. From a recipe card courtesy of my neighborhood Publix grocery store. Enjoy! Being diabetic, I would also try this with Splenda (instead of sugar), just to see how it turns out. NOTE: Cook/prep time DOES NOT include 2 hour chill time!”
