17 Day Diet (Any cycle): Lemon Meringue Pie

January 29th, 2012

Yes! I said Lemon Meringue Pie. After a week on the diet we were craving a dessert and found this one on a 17 Day Diet Forum. It’s simple, quick and really low in calories! This is my absolute favourite dessert recipe to date!

½ – 1 cup Greek, Plain, or Vanilla yogourt
2 Zero Calorie sugar packets
Fresh Lemon
2-3 Egg Whites
Vanilla

  1. Put yogourt in an oven save bowl.
  2. Add 1 packet of sugar and a few squeezes of lemon juice. Mix. Put in fridge or freezer while preparing the meringue (so it doesn’t get too watery)
  3. Add 2-3 egg whites, 1 packet of sugar, and splash of vanilla to a bowl.
  4. Whip until meringue.
  5. Add meringue to top of yogourt mixture.
  6. Put bowls in over under broiler until just browned (a Crème Brule torch works too).
  7. Serve right away

Nutrition:
Egg whites (about 35 cal per egg)
Yogourt (varies between 80-150 cal per cup depending on yogourt)

Substitution Suggestions:

  • Instead of Greek yogourt, try a flavoured one
  • Instead of lemon, try another natural or bottled flavouring like coconut or strawberry
  • For fun, add a few drops of food colouring or flavouring to the egg whites (it’s just fun!)
