"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 :)"

"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."
