Reviews for Lemon Yogurt Cream Pie
"Very nice light lemon flavour. I used Greek yogurt, very tasty"
"This was an excellent pie. Thank you for the recipe. I do a monthly newsletter where I work, and one of the features is "Recipe of the Month". I will be featuring this recipe in the May issue. The pie is flavorful, light, delicious, low in fat and calories. I did find fat-free lemon yogurt. Yoplait makes a Greek yogurt in fat free lemon flavor. I used lite cool whip and sweetner (Equal). Very very good. The reduced-fat graham crust added just enough sweetness to it to make it taste even better."
"Husband does not like Yogurt. I made this pie yesterday and Husband loves it and says it is a keeper. I did add more lemon rind (which I grated) and it was wonderful. I am now considering different flavours of yogurt to make more pies that Hubby will like :)"
"My sister from out of town dropped in, and I wanted to make something special, yet easy. The hint of lemon was a hit."
"Like recipes with yogurt"
"Very easy and tasty recipe! I will definitely make this again!"
"This easy to make and light recipe is tasty and guilt-free. Even the men who ate it said how good it was"
"Delicious!! It was a great hit - even with someone that hates yogurt."
"I loved this recipe, light and sweet, and I didn't have to feel guilty eating it! I could not find lemon yogurt in my grocery store, so I swapped the lemon yogurt for key lime yogurt, and the lemon juice for lime juice. It was great! It was so easy and tasty, I could even make this in my RV!"
"I swapped sugar-free Cool Whip and xylitol and it was amazing. I didn't even use a crust but just made it as a mousse. Fantastic."
"Has "erinout" ever heard of Fat Free Cool Whip - it has ZERO grams of transfat - try it, it tastes the same as regular Cool Whip - can't tell the difference in this recipe!"
"you all have got to find substitutes for "cool whip: ! It is TRANS FAT- all the way!"
