Lemonade Pie (3)

While the summer may be winding down, it's never too late to whip up a cool & refreshing lemon pie! I make this at Thanksgiving for my "lemon pie", keeps me from misbehaving too much! But in the summer, it's a wonderful delight and always a hit at picnics!

Lemonade Pie (3)

Original Recipe, not sure of where I got it but I've seen versions all over. I re-invented it to lower the points (as always), actually it could have been from an original recipe by Cool Whip® or Crystal Light® but either way... I changed it up! I actually believe I took a little of the recipe from either Cool Whip/Crystal Light and added the crust from Hungry Girl with my own additions & deletions.


1 1/4c Fiber One® Original Cereal
6 sheets Low Fat graham crackers
4 Tbsp light butter (50 cal Tbsp)
1 oz water
4Tbsp Splenda®

In blender/food processor place Fiber One® cereal. Crush up. Pour into bowl, crush graham crackers into mix, then add remaining ingredients. Blend together with hands or spoon/spatula.

Push into sprayed pie tin.

Crust Nutritional info for 1/8th = 88.75/3.75/4.75


1 lrg box sugar free fat free instant vanilla pudding
2 c skim milk
1 tub Crystal Light® lemonade *note if you use the pink lemonade you get a pink pie!
½ of 8 oz Cool Whip® Free (reserve other half for topping)

Mix together pudding mix and crystal light. Add milk and whisk until it begins to thicken. Fold in cool whip. Spread into prepared crust. Refrigerate until set. Top with remaining cool whip.
I freeze it and take it out as needed, keeping it firmer & heartier to slice!

Filling Nutritional Info: 1/8th = 88 cal/ 0g fat/ 0g fiber

One slice of Pie 1/8th = 176 cal/ 3.75g fat/ 4.75g fiber

I highly recommend their program and cannot say enough GOOD about it, but I also have decided that they were my "stepping stone" to making a change in my lifestyle. Any mention of Weight Watchers®, their program or their term of "points®" does not mean they have approved, seen, or endorsed anything on my blogs.

Also, if at any time Points® are mentioned it is always with the assumption that you will analyze the recipes, foods, ingredients and figure the points out specifically for your consumption of any product, as ingredients may vary by brand, size, etc.
