Flu Busting Organic Lemon Pie | No Sugar

You can make a delicious organic lemon pie filling 
with ingredients healthy enough to serve to 
someone with a cold and sore throat

Imagine instead of yucky cough meds, you said to the kids "Oh you have a sore throat? 
 Let me make you a pie!" Teehee.


This lemon pie filling takes less time to make from scratch than going to
the store and picking up a fake one.

Find my pie crust recipe HERE.

If you are eating gluten-free simply put the lemon filling in a glass ramekin 
and top it off with meringue and bake them.
Crustless lemon pie is wonderful too!

Lemon Pie filling recipe (Think in 3's!):

The juice from 3 organic lemons + the zest from 1 organic lemon
3/4 cup of filtered water
3 Tbs of raw organic honey
3 tsp organic corn starch
3 egg yolks (reserve the 3 egg whites for the meringue)

Bring the lemon juice, 1/2 cup of the water, lemon zest and honey to a boil,
In a glass or mug, beat together with a fork; the egg yolks, corn starch and 1/4 cup of water until smooth
stirring constantly, slowly pour the yolk mixture into the boiling juice, stir until thickened.


Whip the egg whites (sugar optional - I used 1 tbs of organic cane sugar)

 Watch the video for the simple instructions:




I am honestly tired of seeing "from scratch" recipes that include a box of this, a tub of that and a can of something else...I don't consider a recipe from scratch unless you practically mill your own flour and churn your own butter...:D Seriously though, purchasing a package of lemon "flavored" sugar sweetened artificially colored "lemon" pie filling and tossing it in a frozen pie crust is absolutely not from scratch.

  1. how much stevia would you suggest in place of the honey.. I like it pretty tart myself

  2. 1/4-1/2tsp should be plenty, you can always add it to your liking and taste it while it's warm before it sets :)

  4. :)...Stevia works even better in lime pie filling, especially if you use organic green stevia which has more health benefits and helps color the lime filling.

  5. How long would you bake it and at what temp? I have a very sick person that is wanting a pie. Thanks for the help!

  6. Crust is baked at 350 for 25mins, then filled, meringue is added then back in the oven for another 10 mins on 350.
