The traditional recipe features a graham cracker crust, plus a tart, creamy filling -- a perfect combination. But, if you would like to change things up a little, you can try these variations.

While the traditional key lime pie is loaded with sugar and butter, this version is easier on the waistline. With only 200 calories per serving, this no-bake option uses fat-free cream cheese, gelatin, and yogurt.
This recipe takes a little bit longer to make, and also requires a few more ingredients than the classic version. But, the result is melt-in-your-mouth perfection.
This recipe adds just a couple extra ingredients to the traditional recipe, but the changes make the filling creamier and give the crust a taste of coconut.

If you want to take the preparation time for the traditional recipe down to almost nothing, you can also opt for a ready-made pie crust and simply make the filling. But, no matter if you go for the classic recipe or a variation, you will end up with a perfectly delicious treat.
