My Grandma’s Frozen Yogurt Pie

When my grandma made her yogurt pie, I probably never ate it.  One because I was young and a fickle eater and two because I was not a fan of yogurt.  About four years ago, I was at my sister’s apartment for dinner and she made this dessert.  Once I had my first bite, there was no turning back, I was hooked.  I kept thinking to myself why didn’t I try this sooner.  Well you know the reasons.  Anyways, I started making this recipe all the time, once it was finished, I would make another one.

This soon became a family staple when we had get-togethers.  I’ve assumed responsibility for making this dessert.  I do have to give my sister credit for keeping this dessert alive. Now-a-days my mom actually is the one who makes it all the time.  Its funny, I think my sister Jackie was probably the only one who use to like it.  Now, we all fight over the last slice.

Please mind the less than awesome pictures because I was making this at a potluck dinner with friends and got a little tipsy when it was being served.

Ingredients:

Keebler’s Ready Crust -Graham Cracker (find this in the baking aisle)
2 Dannon Fruit on the bottom Yogurts ( I use strawberry and blueberry to get a mixture of flavor.
1 – 8oz container of Cool Whip – Free

Directions:

  • Mix the Yogurt and Cool Whip together until well blended.
  • After ingredients are completely mixed, put yogurt filling in pie crest.
  • Put in freezer for a few hours until filling in frozen

Serve:

  • Take out of freezer 30 minutes prior to serving, in order to soften the filling slightly.
  • Any leftovers, put pie back in freezer for a later time

      sis – you sound like a spammer when you say i have a nice layout.. Yes you can send me pictures of your food but you also have to write a guest post for me :) and it can’t be pics from your cellphone

  3. I love ice cream/fro yo pies!! I have a raspberry fro yo cookin’ up in the ice cream machine as we speak…maybe I’ll layer it inside some pie crust! Thanks for the inspiration Gabby!

  4. Looks great! I can imagine this will be a family pleaser in my household!!

  6. So simple – and yet, I’m sure, a real crowd pleaser! What is cool whip, we don’t have it in Australia and I think my sister would really enjoy this pie.

    • Shari – Yes very simple and def crowd pleaser. CoolWhip is made by Kraft and its an imitation whipcream. It has a creamer texture than whip cream but I’m pretty sure you can use whip cream as a substitute. You may not get the same end result but its worth a shot. Check to see if they sell an imitation whip cream in the freezer aisle. Coolwhip comes frozen which you then defrost and can use for a lot of no-bake recipes.

  7. yum…looks nice and fluffy! and so simple to whip together, nice! =)
