Coconut LIme Mousse- Atkins Friendly

It's amazing how talking about the Atkins WOE eventually quirks people's curiosity and they start investigating. I have been talking off and on about the benefits, both weight and health wise, to a friend of mine for about two years. Today, she emailed me this recipe she obviously found on the Atkins site for Coconut Lime Mousse. Being an avid lime lover, I will definitely try this one, especially since it looks so easy!

2 oz. cream cheese
4 packets Stevia
