The oven should be preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit before beginning. In a medium bowl, beat two eggs until smooth. Add 11 ounces of fat-free sweetened condensed milk to the egg along with 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of lemon zest. Mix all of these ingredients until the consistency is smooth, and then pour into a pie crust. The pie needs to bake for approximately 15 minutes, then given time to cool completely before cut.

This lemon pie is best served cold. To spruce up this easy recipe, whipped cream can be added to the top before serving. Lemon peel can also be added for decoration. This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and freezes well for up to two weeks, so it doesn't have to be made the same day it is served.

If calories are not an issue, the fat-free sweetened condensed milk can also be replaced with a full-fat version.
