High-Speed Blender Lemon Cream Pie

lemon cream pie

  • 8 ounces gingersnap cookies

    gingersnap crumbs

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated lemon zest plus more for serving
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350Ā° F.
  2. In a high speed blender such as Vitamix add the gingersnaps and blend into fine crumbs. Then add the butter, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt and blend until moistened.
  3. Press the gingersnap mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Place pie plate on a baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool.
  4. After rinsing out your high-speed blender, add the eggs, condensed milk, lemon zest and juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and blend until creamy. Pour the mixture into the crust and bake until set 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool and refrigerate minimum 2 hours.
  5. WHIPPED CREAM: In your high-speed blender, whip the cream and confectioners’ sugar on a low setting until soft peaks form 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.

  6. WHIPPED CREAM ALTERNATIVE: Buy it ready-made – which is what I did.

Serve pie topped with cream and lemon zest.

    • Hi, thank you for the mention! We just started shopping at our local farmer’s market only 4 weeks ago to make our daily juice smoothies. My husband is losing weight with the smoothie diet. I’m not but I enjoy the smoothies just the same. Great blog!

  6. Great idea with the gingersnap crust! I’m sure it gives it a lil bit of spice that makes it great.
