A Creamy Lemon Yogurt Pie in a crisp graham cracker crust. The easy-to-make lemon filling gets it’s creamy texture and a little extra tang from the addition of Greek yogurt.
Today I’ve teamed up with The Greek Gods Yogurt to bring you a luscious lemon pie perfect for the holidays. Pumpkin pie is great for Thanksgiving, but my mom loved lemon desserts. So I’ve been making a lemon dessert in her honor every year for Thanksgiving for the last five years. Mom would love this easy-to-make Creamy Lemon Yogurt Pie and I’m sure you will too.
I’ve purchased the full fat Traditional Plain Greek Gods Yogurt before to use in recipes, but I hadn’t tried their flavored yogurts until recently. They sent me some grocery store coupons. So I couldn’t resist trying several of the flavors.
I loved all the flavors I bought, but I paired the Honey Salted Caramel The Greek Gods Yogurt with my homemade Pecan Pie Granola and had it for dessert one night. They are fabulous together.
For this pie, I used both the Honey Lemon and the Traditional Plain yogurt. I made the filling for this pie three times, tweaking it to get it just right. The pie is a little sweeter with the Honey Lemon yogurt, but both yogurts are great in this recipe.
The Greek Gods is holding a Fall Pie Recipe Contest. To enter submit your favorite autumn pie dish using The Greek Gods® Greek-Style Yogurt, Kefir, Lebni along with a photo of the dish and the hashtag #GreekGodsPies.
I’m taking this Creamy Lemon Yogurt Pie to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving this year. I think you should put it on your menu as well.

I am a lemon fan as well and really like your idea. I am thinking of replacements for the sweetened condensed milk. Have you tried any substitutions?
Hi Kathy – I haven’t used a substitute. Are you looking for a replacement because you don’t have it on hand, or because you have dietary restrictions?
I don’t use sweetened condensed milk when I don’t have to. But am not against it for a sweet experience. :0)
Thank you for sharing your creamy lemon pie. Excellent !
Thanks Marina! So glad you enjoyed it!
YUM! This creamy lemon yogurt pie looks amazing! I love lemon desserts! Well, who doesn’t? I will try making this recipe of yours, Barbara. Thanks!
This is gorgeous and how I love lemon desserts (who doesn’t?)! But I would love the recipe for the same using plain yogurt which would be easier for me to reproduce here in France. Delicious!
I love lemon pie, especially like this! Reminds me of my childhood 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Barbara! Hope you’re having a wonderful NOV filled with lots of love and family! xo

Mum we are thinking of doing a Thanksgiving feast this year. Do you have any tips? This looks so delicious! I’m a big lemon dessert fan too 😀 xxx
How fun that you’re going to have a Thanksgiving dinner this year. My advice is start planning early https://www.barbarabakes.com/thanksgiving-planning-guide/, do a little of the work over many days, and ask your guests to bring a dish to share. I have great memories of Thanksgiving dinners that my mom cooked and invited her sisters and their families to join us. There were probably 20 of us and she always hosted and had a sit down dinner with china and sterling silver. Traditionally, Thanksgiving dinner was served at 2 pm, so there was never a lunch served, just appetizers to snack on, and pie and leftovers later on in the evening. I’ll look forward to seeing pictures.
I love to use Greek yogurt when I bake and the look of this pie is amazing. Plus I’ll never turn down something lemon flavored!

What a fabulous pie! I could totally devour the entire pie by myself.
Condensed milk and yogurt..the filling sounds fantastic!
Such a refreshing and tasty pie. I love Greek God’s yogurt…so good!
Annamaria @ Bakewell Junction
I’ve always wanted to try making lemon pie. This one looks easy and perfect for my first attempt at it.
Hi Annamaria – it really is a super easy pie. Perfect for a first.
Hi, I guess I’m confused which yogurt you use in the pie. It says 1/2 cup of Greek Gods Yogurt, Plain?
Either the plain or the honey lemon would work well in this recipe. I’ve updated the recipe. Thanks!
I bought two flavors of Greek Gods Yogurt (New item at my local Publix) last week . . . it is so delicious! Can’t wait to try your lemon yogurt pie. Thanks, Barbara!
I love that your posting lemon in the middle of pumpkin season. it’s a nice change and it’s beautiful!
Mmmmm-we love lemon pie-and Greek yogurt. I don’t know if I can get that brand around here-that honey salted caramel flavor sounds amazing. Will have to take a look at the grocery store this weekend.
It looks absolutely amazing and totally irresistible!
