OK help me remember the name and recipe for this lemon desert?
 
Many years ago. Vague memory that you put powdered Crystal Light lemonade drink mix in it. It had heavy cream or cream cheese... not sure. It was thick, creamy and tangy.


ANyone remember what I am talking about at all?

Ann Lytle 07-26-2010 04:59 AM

I have the book. How did I miss this delicous recipe?

graciejean 07-26-2010 09:29 AM

got to try this....

LunaAshling 07-26-2010 01:39 PM

No I am VERY positive that it was not made with yogurt.

Argh this is frustrating my brain! :laugh:


That recipe does sound good though.

maru2 07-26-2010 02:21 PM

I remember adding some crytal light to the one minute cake and then making an icing from cream cheese, butter and the remaining crystal light.

Here is what I thought of when I first read your post. I tried something called a lemonade cheesecake years ago (low carb) and tried to find the recipe for you.

Lemonade Cheesecake
- 8 oz cream cheese (softened)
- 1 t. crystal light lemonade powder
- 1/4 cup skim milk (I don't remember this being in it-can use heavy cream)
- 1 tub cool whip (use heavy cream-whipped)

Beat cream cheese and drink mix with electric mixer. Gradually add milk. Gently stir in whipped topping. Chill until firm.

LunaAshling 07-26-2010 11:59 PM

None of these are quite right. There was no skim or regular milk, no cottage cheese and no Cool Whip.



Maybe it was just cream cheese and heavy cream with Crystal Light in it in place of jello. I wasn't called a cheesecake, that I am certain of... though it was a bit like a no bake cheesecake meets a key lime pie and was served cold but not frozen. It really was popular back when I started. It had a specific name and it's driving me nuts. :laugh:



Thanks guys you are all really close!!! :cool:

Ginaaaaaa 07-27-2010 09:20 AM

Are you sure it wasn't one of these?? This is making me crazy too..lol. Some people mix crystal light into heavy cream and mix it to make a lemon type frosting for cheesecakes and a light mousse type dish.

Maybe it was something like this but using the Crystal light?

The icebox pie sounds real close to what you described too, but without the crust.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 07-27-2010 10:27 AM

I have an old recipe that uses lemon sf jello. If you want it let me know. Julie

mom2twoboys 07-27-2010 02:43 PM

These all sound good!

snowangel9 07-28-2010 10:18 PM

WhoKnew,

I love lemon! Thank you for posting this. I might try it with the crystal light orange too.

Great idea too Gina for the frosting! Thank you!! :)

maru2 07-29-2010 05:54 PM

Some people used to replace the vanilla in this recipe with crystal light.

2 8oz. pks. philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup sweetener (I use spenda)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients. Beat with mixer till smooth. Pour into 12 muffin pans lined with the papers. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

LunaAshling 07-29-2010 11:46 PM

These are soooo close!


It was made with powdered Crystal Light... no liquids used. And it was thick like a no bake cheesecake/key lime pie. No pudding or Jello mix in it. And it was never cooked.




I don't remember a crust, but it may be I didnt use one.



I just remember it had a very specific name but so far none of these have rung the "aha" bell. :confused:


Ginaaaaaa you are trying so hard! You are AWESOME! :cool:

LunaAshling 07-29-2010 11:48 PM

The Icebox Pie looks yummy, but I am very positive there was no yogurt in it. Back 7 years ago the only yogurt the board was talking about was to make yo-cheese really. I have no memories of anyone talking about greek yogurt.




I feel I am really missing something, well more than forgetting the name. :lol

Ginaaaaaa 07-30-2010 09:24 AM

I thought maybe it was the Cheesecake Pudding, with crystal light. Usually when someone is looking for a recipe, someone comes up with it...lol. Oh well, it will remain a mystery I guess!!

Charski 07-30-2010 10:16 AM

Was it maybe just ricotta cheese mixed with Crystal Light? I know that was pretty popular a while back, to mix ricotta and various flavorings, for a dessert.

LunaAshling 08-03-2010 11:54 PM

Not ricotta.


Egads it will come back to me in 20 years no doubt! :laugh:

was it LindaSue's cream cheese clouds with crystal light added?

Was it this?

Flourless Orange or Lemon Cake
Yields 1 9-1/2 or 10-inch cake

This recipe calls for a choice of 2 thin-skinned oranges, or 4-5 clementines, 350 g kumquats, or 3 lemons.
The lemons will add about 12 net carbs to the entire recipe and the oranges will add about 24 net carbs to the entire recipe. I have no idea about clementines or kumquats.

Your choice of the above listed fruit
1 1/2 cups ground almonds
6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Scrub the fruit well. Place in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 2 hours, checking every once in a while to make sure the water hasn’t boiled off too much. Drain and when cool enough to handle, cut the fruit in half carefully, and remove all of the seeds (otherwise the cake will be bitter).

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour, or line with parchment, a 9-1/2- or 10-inch springform pan. Use matzo meal instead of flour if you are baking for Passover.

Put the fruit, skin and all, in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and puree. Measure out 1-1/4 cups.

Beat the eggs with the sugar and baking powder at medium-high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Add the ground almonds and mix well. Mix in the pulped orange at low speed, in two or three additions, beating for 20 seconds after each addition. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour, until firm and a knife comes out clean. If the top begins to get too brown halfway through, cover loosely with foil.

I posted one a long time ago that was a take off of one of my DH's favorites: Pink Lemonaide Pie

Soften 16oz cream cheese and beat in 2 tubes of pink lemonaide sugar free drink mix (crystal light but I used the wal-mart one)
Whip 1 cup heavy cream with 1 tube of the drink mix, then fold into the cream cheese mixture.
Spray a glass pie pan with butter flavor spray(or use butter), then smooth the mixture into the pan.
Chill an hour before cutting.

Ann Lytle 08-05-2010 11:29 AM

The Crystal Light I have come in tubs, I don't think I've ever seen it in the tubes. I can't use the tubs, the tubes wouldn't have as much in them I assume.............Ann

Soobee 08-05-2010 12:04 PM

The tub I have makes 2 quarts. The tube sweetens 16 oz. So 1/4 tub=1 tube.

Ann Lytle 08-07-2010 04:26 PM

Thanks Soobee...........................Ann

I think you have come closest! It was plain lemon and not pink and it was back in the day when they only had tubs and not the tubes. But this sounds really close to what my memory is saying.


I do remember that it did not have anyone's name on the recipe. I think it may have been something like "Crystal Light Pie".


Either way... all these ideas are quite yummy sounding! Thank you all so much fro trying to help me in my madness! :up: :hyst:

All the CL I have seen this year is in tubes only now. But they have many more flavors than they did back in 2003!!! I love the Sunrise Tangerine Strawberry one! :up:
