No-Bake Low Carb Lemon Pie

by Olesya Novik

If you love the zesty, fresh, perfectly tart and sweet taste of lemon meringue pie as much as I do, but are watching your carbs, then you surely miss this light and airy, one of a kind dessert. Consider today your lucky day — the following is a low-carb alternative that’s sure to become a new favorite. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Crust:

1 cup pecans, ground
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. granular Splenda or stevia

Lemon Curd:

1 package sugar-free lemon Jello
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (1 lemon)
1 tbsp. lemon zest (1 lemon)
1/3 cup boiling water
1/3 cup cold water
2 8-oz packages light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup granular Splenda or stevia
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

Crust:

Melt the butter in a small bowl. Add the nuts, sweetener, combine well, and transfer to a pie pan. Spread all over bottom of pan and chill, in the refrigerator, for at least an hour.

Lemon Curd:

Bring water to a boil, and while waiting for that to happen, whip the heavy cream until peaks form. Set aside.

In a big bowl, mix the Jello with 1/3 cup boiling water until all the gelatin dissolves. Once it’s dissolved, add cold water and lemon juice, and stir. Slowly stir in the softened cream cheese while still beating with your mixer. Once the cream cheese is added, add the lemon zest, sweetener, and the vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and uniform in texture and color.

Fold in the whipped cream carefully, and keep folding until everything is mixed through.

Use a big rubber spatula to transfer everything into the cooled crust, and put back in the fridge to chill for at least 2-3 hours (preferably overnight). Makes 8 servings.

    This looks EXACTLY like what my grandma used to make for dessert on Christmas day. (other than the crust and the use of stevia instead of sugar).

    But it was my FAVORITE dessert, ever. Definitely going to try this in the future!

    I bet it would be yummy with different jello flavors, too.

    Yum! I have a huge lemon tree in my yard with tons of fruit. Definitely going to make this one! Thank you!

    I made this pie for July 4th. It was ok that evening but the next day it was good. I squirted some whipping cream on top and really really enjoyed this dessert. I am on a low carb diet and really wanted something cold. This was it. Try it. You will like it.
