No bake lemon cream berry pie with juicy red berries ohsweetbasil.com summer

Have I ever told you about what a horrible, no good, awful baby our second daughter was? I joke about it pretty often, but the truth is I cried. A lot. And dreamed of this no bake lemon cream pie with berries. And maybe a little of this No Bake Oreo Pie.

Where to start? Well, first of all my pregnancy with her was far worse than this one. It was rough. I kept hoping and praying that she would be the world’s easiest baby since the pregnancy was hard. WRONG. Just a week or two after delivery she started screaming day and night. And I mean screaming. She was so gassy and her stomach was always rock solid from it. And if you think you had a kid that spit up a lot it was nothing compared to her. Projectile is the only word to describe it. Have you ever seen a newborn do that? It’s scary!

Cade had gone straight back to work so it was just me and the two girls at home. I cried. A lot. You guys,she would sleep for maybe 10-20 minutes and then cry the rest of the time. You’d think she would cry herself to sleep but she didn’t. Or she would and then wake right back up. We were desperate. We constantly were calling our doctor wanting help and she just kept telling us she had a b”bad attitude” and some kids were like that. No. We didn’t believe it.

Finally at almost 4 months we had had it. We asked around and found out about Doctor WilcoxHe saved us. Immediately he put me on an elimination diet and our little one on reflux medicine. The medicine started working within a day or so and slowly but surely my diet fixed everything. It took months, and I had to go off of dairy, soy, yeast (don’t worry, we kept passing back and forth yeast infections, yes nursing moms can get breast yeast infections. I wanted to die.), limited sugar for the yeast issue, bananas, nut products and anything gas producing. She was a sensitive little thing.

He gave me the most amazing list to watch for dairy in products as they can be listed as other things and boy is it in everything! I’d go to eat a cracker or granola bar and it would be listed! GOSH! I lived off of easy fruits, vegetables, and meat with practically no flavor. It was so hard!! Our doctor kept reassuring us that by a year she would likely be just fine and sure enough, at 13 months she was fabulous!

Now she is our best sleeper and at 5 still prefers to take a 1-2 hour nap. I think she is making up for lost time. Either way, this is the pie I dreamed about while nursing however once I could eat everything again I found it took me a good year to want much junk food since I was used to eating so healthy. I forgot about the pie until now.

Thick graham cracker crust that can either be refrigerated for an hour before filling or baked, which is what I prefer since I like that extra crunch. Creamy filling which is made up of cream cheese, pudding and sweetened condensed milk. Yes, we are clearly going for healthy on this one. Haha, worth it!!

  • That pie is delicious. It melts in your mouth. The texture is smooth. The only thing is that I don’t always have whipping cream in my refrigerator but I would serve it to guests

  • Is it overly sweet? It seems to me that it would not be very lemony.

    • It’s pretty light and a hint of lemon so it’s not sour. The cream cheese brings down the sweetness and the berries really break things up.

  • The no-bake pie looks delicious…definitely on my “to try” list. Thank you for all your great recipes.

    I love the deep dish plate you used to make this pie. Would you be able to share the manufacturer? I don’t have any high-end baking shops locally but I would be willing to purchase over the internet sight unseen if you recommend one. Many thanks!
