Guilt-Free Lemon Meringue Pie

March 12, 2019

Looking for a lemony indulgence? Look no further.

Lemon meringue pie is one of my favourite desserts. I love the tangy freshness in every bite. This recipe has become my go-to for family gatherings like Thanksgiving (my birthday), Christmas and Easter. The pie crust is like a healthy cookie, low in carbs but big in taste.

The honey blends nicely with the lemon flavour reminding me of sunshine in my mouth.
