Lemon lovers, are you ready for your new LEMON OBSESSION? This lemon pie! Bursting with bright lemon flavor, this light and creamy pudding is delicious and simple: NO cooking required!
This recipe is dedicated to Summer, my IG buddy (Hi, Summer!) who gave me the idea to recreate one of her favorite recipes. When she sent me the link to this Luscious Lemon Delight and asked me to make it healthier, I was SO excited to tackle the challenge! I transformed a dessert made with mostly processed foods into a healthy, guilt-free treat using only whole food ingredients– and NO sugar. I love healthy makeovers 😉
It’s a Party
Last week, we got to travel to my brother’s house in Houston to celebrate all the summer birthdays in my family (including mine! Woot!) I was thrilled to get to bring the birthday “cake” (or birthday PIE!) to share with my fam. (And because I can’t eat traditional cakes made due to my ongoing health issues.) But any excuse to make a new dessert, I’m GAME. 🙂
This pie was devoured in about 2 minutes flat! Yay! I was so happy (and relieved) my family liked it. I still get nervous when people taste my recipes, ha. Especially since this one is sweetened only with stevia. But I’m proud to report that this pie does NOT have any strange taste that screams “this isn’t real sugar.” All I taste is the delightfully sweet lemon creaminess.

How do you get that vibrant gorgeous YELLOW?
Some pies use egg yolks, some use artificial coloring. Neither of those here. I used turmeric! 100% natural and adds a little boost of health benefits, too! Win-win. It’s not “required” for the recipe, but it sure does make it pretty 🙂 #ilikepretty
Cashew butter + lemon + coconut cream. DELISH. I dare you not to lick every drop from your spatula, bowls, whisk, EVERY.SINGLE.THING. Omg, the filling tastes like lemon cake batter! YUM.
