Make Your Own Favorite Yogurt Pie!!
As Many Favorites As You Like....
This is a perfect dessert that goes right into the low-calorie category......yet you would never know because it is so delicious! The fun part about this dessert recipe is you get to use your imagination and choose the flavor of your pie! Since you decide whether you would like flavored or plain yogurt for your pie, you can experiment with each pie you make!
You can choose to BAKE your own crust creation OR buy your READY-MADE Graham Cracker Crust. This is another reason why this pie recipe allows personal creativity. If you choose to make and bake your own graham cracker crust, here is the simple baking recipe for this crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter**
1/3 cup sugar**
Mix all of the ingredients listed above. **(You may use margarine and/or sugar substitutes in this recipe) Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
You can play the field with this recipe...so to speak. Another added bonus is you can also add your own fruit to the mix or on top if you wish. I have always used the graham cracker crust because it compliments the yogurt so well.
Whip It Up
Now it's time to make your yogurt mixture:
3 -- 6 oz individual Yogurts (Your Flavor Choice or Unflavored) = 18oz of Yogurt Total
1 -- 8 oz Cool Whip (Regular or Lite - Your Preference)
Your Choice of the Quantity of Fresh or Canned Fruit (Drain Fluids)**
**Mixed in with Yogurt & Cool Whip or Placed on Top - Your Preference
Combine the Cool Whip and the Yogurt until smooth. Pour into your pie crust, top with fresh fruit if desired, and freeze until firm.
Remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving. A great option with this recipe is that you can make as many pies as you need for your occasion, and it only takes minutes!!
Slice & Enjoy Your Delicious & Healthy Creation with all of your family & friends!!
