This was good as written, but I made a few additions that imrproved it. First, I added just a little lemon zest as I mixed it -- maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon. Then I layered it in a glad bowl with a blueberry topping. The topping was 1/2 cup blueberries simmered on the stove with 1/2 t sugar and 2 t of splenda and 2 TBS of water. Once tihs simmered and turned into a syrup I let it cool. Then poured in on a layer of the lemon mixture. Then I toped it with the other lemon mixture and swirled it. As a Type 2 diabetic I have found that blueberries don't bother my blood sugar but everyone is different so you might want to double check yours!

Wow!! This was sure lemony. I made as directed. When I did a taste test, the four packets of Crystal Light that comes in the container was way to much. I added a container of nonfat whipped topping and it toned down the lemon taste a bit. I also used nonfat cream cheese to help save on some calories. Next time I make this and there will be a next time, I will add one packet at a time and do a taste test inbetween. I placed mixture into 6 medium size parfait glasses topped with a thin slice of lemon. I still had enough of the batter left that I placed it into a premade pie crust topped with lemon slices. This was quick, easy and the taste was great. Remember to make a note to mix one packet at a time.

Fantastic recipe for a quick and easy low carb dessert! I love how you can play with the flavors. Thanks so much for posting this recipe- but don't tell DH (whose on Atkin's) that this is so simple... I'm kinda liking the fact that he thinks I spent so much time on this for him! :)
