Simple "light" Lemon Pie

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bonnie G 2

Lemon Meringue pie is one of my Mom's favorites, but being a diabetic it's not the best for her. Found this lite version in "Taste of Home" magazine and anxious to try it for her. States the diabetic exchange is 1 starch, 1 fat and 1/2 fruit. I can't vouch for that as I don't know how it's figured, but am going to try this just for her. Prep time does not include chilling time. ETA: Corrected size of pudding and jello.

OMG, this pie is so easy and so good for a diabetic treat! I'm also going to try this with red Jello to make a nice pink pie for Spring (if Spring ever gets here LOL!) Thanks for posting a keeper Bonnie! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
