Lemon Pie!!! OMG

Hello All!
DH said I have to post this recipe, he is in love with it and wants everyone to know about it!! (Blush!) It is soooo simple and really very good, if I say so myself. LOL

Cooled pie crust of your choice. There are several great ones in the recipe and BB posts on here.

One package SF and FF Vanilla pudding mix

3/4 cup low carb or FF milk of your choice

1 small package of Kool-aid brand lemon-aide mix. (the kind you would have to add sugar to)

The juice of half a small lemon

Whip milk, pudding mix, lemon-aid mix and lemon juice together in bowl for 2 minutes.

Pour into cooled pie crust and refridgerate for 1 hour, or until cold and set. Cut into slices and add a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Enjoy, Beeb

I bet it would be great with this crust:

3/4 cup almond meal (2.25 oz. slivered blanched ground almonds)
3/8 cup flax seed meal
3/8 cup unsweetened coconut
3/8 cup Splenda
6 Tbsp. melted butter
3/4 tsp. molasses

Mix together and press into pie plate or baking dish. Bake for 8
to 10 minutes at 350. This is a great crust - I would use it even if
I were not LC'ing. (Makes 8 servings @ 176 cal., 17g fat, 5g carbs, 3g fiber and 3g protein)

I've tried all the crust recipes here and that one is my favorite!

That crust sounds wonderful. The crust I used was one called "Almond Flour Pie Crust" Here is the recipe. I put a little cinnamon in it, too.

Almond Flour Pie Crust

For a 9inch pie plate:
1 & 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup Splenda
6 tablespoons melted butter

Stir almond flour and Splenda together and add melted butter and mix well. Pat into a 9inch pie plate until even all around. Bake in a 350° oven for 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and fill with your favorite filling.

You can also use this recipe for a baked cheesecake,

Hope you enjoy this as much as we did,
Beeb

Question: Does anyone know if this could be made into a lemon merengue pie? Could the filling withstand the cooking long enough to cook the merengue? Is there a merengue that doesn't need to be cooked? Any thoughts?

TIA,
Karen, the Klueless

Yes..meringue only takes about 10 minutes to cook in the oven..
Be sure to seal the meringue over the pudding..

I think you could have fun experimenting with different flavors
of kool-aid..lime, orange, strawberry..and have some great
desserts..Of course, you would leave out the lemon juice..

I just made the pie,I used carbsense bake mix,I had to add a little cream to get the dough pliable...made the lemon filling...but it needed more low carb milk...it was too thick...I probably added another 3/4 of a cup to make it look right...
I will not have a chance to taste it till tomorrow...but so far looks like a keeper...
I can just imagine all the fun flavors we can make for summer nights!

I am so glad that everyone is liking this idea!!! I feel special! You know I made my pudding with FF milk, so you may have to add more milk if you use low carb. Just do what the last reply to this post did, and eye ball it until it looks right. You all let me know how you like it, ok? Also, I just bought a package of kool-aid lemon ice flavor, but like someone else says, the flavors are unlimited!!

my two cents

For a yummy mound high lemon merangue pie:

Follow pie directions, chill pie for 1 hr. whip 5 egg whites
and then fold in splenda - about 1/4-1/2 cup with about
2 tsp. of vanilla davinci's. Mound on the top of your pie.
Set oven to broiler and put in your pie on the second to
the lowest rung in your oven. (Watch it) The mounds will
get a lovely golden brown. It really turns out beautifully.
Chill again or serve.

Thanks for the recipe!

Heather

Pudding without Nutrasweet?

I haven't tried any of the recipes using SF pudding because I haven't found any without Nutrasweet. (My doc told me to stay away from it, and it doesn't like me, anyway!)

Are there any brands made without aspartame? If not, are there any recipes for SF pudding that don't use it?

I did the same -- with only 3/4 of a cup I had about a 1/4" deep filling in my pie! I also folded in about 1 cup of whipped cream to make a mousse filling. It was delicious.

There is a place on the web called Sierra Nut House where I have gotten my unsweetened coconut and unsweetened cocoa from. Not sure if I am allowed to have said where I got it, but I am sorry if I did anything wrong!

HTH!

This looks great. I can't wait to try it next week I don't have all the ingredients but printed it up to give it a try. Thanks for the recipe. Does anyone know the carb count on this without the crust? Ramona

I bet a meringue pie shell would be good for this with whip cream on top.

I made this yesterday, and it was fantastic. However, I used 2 per cent low carb milk and you really need to add much more. I just did what the box of pudding called for and it was 2 cups minus however much juice you get from the lemon. I also used the crust recipe someone on this thread suggested, and the merangue someone suggested. My dh and my son ate 2 pieces each. I wonder how many carbs this is. Anyone have a count.

I get my coconut from Wal Mart Super Center. Look in the freezer section next to the pie crusts.
