    Found an easy & quick way to make a good creamy cheese cake, but then thought it would make a good key lime as well, so after experimenting today I can post the successful recipe here.
    Simple Cheese cake:
    1 Graham pie crust or use the box's package graham pie crust.
    1 Box of Walmart TrueValue cheese cake mix
    (I know usually that kind of cheese cake served in Chinese Buffets is nasty, but this brand and my tweeking is actually good).
    1 1/2 cups soy milk or 2% milk
    1/3 package of no fat cream cheese (it's creamier)
    2 tablespoons no fat sour cream
    2 tablespoons sugar
    Hand Blender Whip till creamy with no lumps and pour into pie crust, chill for over an hour to set.

    Changes to make this an easy
    key lime pie:
    use 1 1/4 cup soy milk instead of 1 1/2
    1 lime squeezed juice, but first clean &
    grate the peel for lime zest.
    If you can get key limes I'm guessing cause they are smaller that 2-3 will work.
    instead of 2 tablespoons sugar add a third tablespoon for the sweetening of the tart lime added. Also use 1/4 of cream cheese pack instead of 1/3 to make it less cheese cake tasting.
