Hubby’s Favorite No-Bake Yogurt Pie

Sharing is caring!

This is my husband’s favorite yogurt pie. Or, as we call it around here, “The yogurt pie that almost ended a friendship.” It’s an easy no-bake icebox pie recipe that causes lots of trouble. Enjoy this tale.

This strawberry yogurt pie is easy to make, and the perfect no-bake dessert. It's also a recipe that almost broke up a friendship. You read that right.

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’re brothers, and Hubby is 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. That is until the yogurt pie was almost gone and he realized I was leaving the next day to go back home.

This Is Where Things Got Crazy

That’s when he asked me to make him a strawberry yogurt pie 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 was covered in pie remains, and he was holding 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.

Strawberry Yogurt Pie Is A Big Deal

So, the passion behind this yogurt pie is the real deal. And rightly so. It’s easy to make, easy to slice, and VERY easy to eat.

Our go-to flavors are strawberry yogurt pie, blueberry, and raspberry, but you can try any flavors you like. Citrus, vanilla, chocolate, even! The possibilities are endless.

Yogurt Pie – No Jello

This yogurt pie recipe isn’t anything new, but most make yogurt pies with jello packets. As you can see, that’s not how I get down. Since my side of the family doesn’t eat animal gelatin or jello, I make my yogurt pie without jello. Also, my husband’s buddy Mark is a vegetarian, so that’s probably why this pie is called to him. Probably. SNORT.

This made my version of yogurt pie a dessert I could serve to anyone, as long as they weren’t vegan. So, give this version a try if you’re serving it to a crowd.

Ready to try this no-bake pie recipe? Let’s go!

Yogurt Pie

1 graham cracker pie shell (or make your own with leftover cereal!)
1 tub of thawed whipped topping 
2 6ounce containers 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. 
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 2 hours. It’s to die for! Also, this dessert is so easy to make into something low-fat.

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.

    You were right! I love this one. And you wanna know what makes it even grander? My two FREE kids club items from Price Chopper this month (that I havnt picked up yet) is Belfonte Yogurt cups! WaaaWhoooo. I already have .25 tubs of cool whip in freezer and TONS of graham crackers in pantry. This will make a VERY frugal dessert. Thanks for sharing.

    That pie looks yummy! I go out of town for a week and you go crazy posting recipes! I want to try making this pie with Key Lime yogurt- YUM! I’ve got graham crackers left over from S’mores supplies for our camping trip and coupons for Yoplait yogurt- I should be able to pull this together pretty cheap! 🙂

    I just want to say this is the easiest pie I have ever made and it is so delicious!!!!! I used blueberry yogurt and added in some frozen blueberries I had. Oh my goodness!!! My husband raved. He does not like yogurt and asks me to make this pie all the time. I smile inside when I ask him what flavor he wants this time. I’ll never tell him what’s in it!!!! LOL 😂

    Okay maybe I’m not understanding your instructions, lol
    But you take your 2- 6 oz containers of yogurt and stir with a third of the whip topping and pour into the graham cracker crust, then what do you do with the rest of the cool whip?
    I usually just put it on top lol
    I’ve made this many times before but never with adding the third container of cool whip

      You stir the yogurt in with just a third of the whipped topping, then you gently fold the other 2/3rds of the whipped topping into the yogurt/whipped topping mix. Next, you add all of that yogurt mix to the crust. I also have a video to help you understand the steps, if you’re more of a visual learner. In the video I mixed in half a tub of the whipped topping, but I’ve since realized that doing just a third of the topping makes a better pie. Here’s the link to the video:
