What is lemon chiffon pie?
It is a light and creamy lemon pie that practically melts in your mouth. While lemon pies are normally much denser, this chiffon pie stands alone as one of a kind. As a classic and traditional pie served for hundreds of years, this pie has withstood the test of time (mostly because of how delicious it is!) We make our easy lemon chiffon pie with graham cracker crust (store bought or homemade) and use a combination of lemon flavored pudding, Greek yogurt, and cool whip to make it fluffy and delectable!
-Graham cracker crust: To make this pie even easier, I recommend using a store bought graham cracker crust. You can make a homemade one with your favorite recipe if desired.
-Lemon Pudding mix: Using 1 3.5-ounce box of lemon pudding mix (just the dry mix) will make the pie savory and sweet.
-Greek yogurt: You will need 1 cup of vanilla (or lemon) flavored Greek yogurt to help make this pie nice and creamy.
-Milk: Using ½ cup of milk will help thin the filling out so that it is not too thick and has a lusciously creamy texture.
-Whipped topping: Folding in 1 8-ounce tub container of whipped topping like Cool Whip will help get that ultra-fluffy chiffon pie filling desired.
-Lemon zest: Use 1 teaspoon of lemon zest to add more delicious flavor and the little specks of lemon throughout the pie for a beautiful look.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry lemon pudding mix with the Greek yogurt and milk.
Then, mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Next, fold in the whipped topping and the lemon zest.
After that, transfer your filling to a prepared graham cracker crust. If desired, spread some more dollops of whipping cream and additional lemon zest over the top for extra yumminess.
Now, place the pie in the fridge for 25 minutes to chill and set before serving.
This pie can be made 2-3 days in advance, but if making in advance wait to top with cream until just before serving. Enjoy!

What is the difference between Lemon Chiffon Pie and Lemon Meringue?
The difference is in the filling. Lemon meringue pie is a dense lemon custard like filling with some beaten and baked egg whites for topping. Lemon chiffon pies are often made with beaten egg whites in the filling to make it lighter and fluffier. For our recipe we don not use any eggs, making the process much easier and still giving us a tasty result.
Does lemon chiffon pie freeze well?
YES! This chiffon pie can be frozen for up to three months in an airtight container. When you are ready to enjoy, simply place in the fridge overnight to thaw before serving.
