Lemon Whey Pie

Yes, you read that right. It’s a lemon meringue pie that calls for whey!

1 pre-baked 9″ pie pastry shell (Get my super-simple recipe that uses healthy fats here.)

Filling:

1 1/2 cups whey (it must be fresh whey, any sort of powdered whey stuff will not work. Here’s my post that explains more about real whey.)
1 cup organic sugar (or if you must, regular white sugar will work in a pinch)
3 1/2 Tablespoons arrowroot powder or organic cornstarch
3 egg yolks (save the whites for the meringue topping below)
1 1/2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup lemon juice (I like the 100% real organic stuff like this kind)

Meringue Topping:

3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
6 Tablespoons organic sugar
