This is a quite basic recipe with no hard-to-find ingredients. The calorie content is basically what you should expect from Key Lime Pie. The fact that this pie has a meringue toppping as opposed to a cream topping, helps to reduce the calorie content. The single largest contributor of calories is the sweetened condensed milk which contains a surprisingly high calorie content.
