If you are following a low carb diet like I try to, you are probably looking for the occasional sweet treat. I just need that something in my life! Even if I’m not hungry per say I like knowing I can have a taste of something sweet. This has become my favorite. This pie is so simple. This easy no bake cheesecakey lemon filling will knock your socks off.
I love cheesecake and I love lemon so when I want a dessert it usually goes that way. My friend invited us over for a weeknight BBQ and I was to bring dessert. She knows I eat low carb so she was making the meat on the grill so I was in charge of something light and delicious.
This is pretty much my go to dessert. I love this pie crust for almost all my pies. Low Carb All Purpose Pie Crust and this filling is super simple and easy to make.
I made this lemon because it’s my favorite but I have also made lime and strawberry. When I made the strawberry one I added 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries to the mix. It was a winner. Of course you can make any flavor you like. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Note: I do not add extra any extra sweetener other than what is in the Jell-O because I don’t like this super sweet but you can add more sweetener if you like. Just taste it before you add it to the pie shell.
