14 oz (414 ml) sweetened condensed milk

Pour mixture into cooled crust and bake until filling is just set and starting to puff around edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  3. To make Topping, in bowl of an electric mixer, combine cream, yogurt, icing sugar, vanilla and rum and beat until soft peaks form, about 3 to 4 minutes. Dollop pie with topping and garnish with lime zest.
