Here’s the back story:
Many moons ago, when Hubby and I were still a lovey-dovey single couple, before the engagement ring, I made this pie. And he loved it. At the time, he was living with his 2 best friends, Mark and Mike. They were brothers and Hubby was their brother from another mother. These friendships were serious. When I made the pie, Hubby and I pretty much ate the whole thing right on the couch. I fed it to him like the sick puppy I was, and he was content. Until it was almost gone and he realized I was leaving the next day to go back home.
That’s when he asked me to make him one as a parting gift. I did so the next morning, right before he took me to the airport. When he got back home later that day, he licked his chops in anticipation for the first slice of his yogurt pie only to open the fridge door and see it gone. Poof. Missing. At this same time, Hubby turned around and saw his best buddy, Mark, turning the corner to the kitchen with the pie in hand, his face covered in the messy middle and the biggest spoon they had in the place. Still to this day, Hubby almost cries when I bring up that fateful day. They are still best buddies(Mark was the best man at our wedding), but the Hubs admits he will never look at his “brother” the same way again.
1 graham cracker pie shell(or make your own with leftover cereal!)
1 tub of whipped topping(make sure it’s not frozen! Keep in fridge overnight if you have to)
2 cups of your favorite yogurt flavor
Pour the yogurt into a medium sized bowl. Take one third of the whipped topping and stir together with the yogurt. Put the rest of the whipped topping into the bowl and FOLD it into the yogurt mixture. Do this until you dont as many white streaks.
Put the mixture into the pie crust, smooth down the top, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
*Tip- if you want it really hard and yummy, place it in the freezer for the 2 hours. It’s to die for! Also, this dessert is so easy to make into something low-fat and great for diets. Choose a reduced fat crust, reduced fat whipped topping and a low calorie yogurt. I’ve made this for friends on weight watchers a few times and they love how many points they save by having this for dessert.
