Directions:

  1. To make the filling, place the egg substitute in a blender, and sprinkle the gelatin over the egg. Set aside for 2 minutes to allow the gelatin to soften.
  2. Place 1/4 cup of the lime juice in a small bowl. If using a microwave oven, microwave uncovered on high for about 1 minute, or until the juice comes to a boil. If using a conventional stovetop, place the juice in a small pot, and cook over medium heat for about 1 minute, or until it comes to a boil.
  3. Add the boiling lime juice to the blender, place the lid on, and blend for about 1 minute, or until the ingredients are well mixed and the gelatin is completely dissolved. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of lime juice, and blend for about 30 seconds, or until well mixed. Add the condensed milk, and blend for about 1 minute, or until well mixed. Immediately pour the filling into the crust.
  4. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours, or until set, before cutting into wedges and serving. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons of whipped topping and a sprinkling of coconut, if desired.
