Frozen Yogurt Delight

One of my fondest memories from childhood was going to the local frozen yogurt shop (mind you, there was only one…. this was before the big frozen yogurt boom), Goldmine, with my Nana and Papa. I would get a mini chocolate with hot fudge and sit and chat with them (chat as much as a 5 year old can). I can recall many times I went to this same shop with my mom for an after school treat in elementary school or with my girlfriends in high school after football games. I think that’s why I love frozen yogurt so much now… it’s sort of like comfort food for me! I don’t discriminate…. I’ll take it in any form with any topping! One of my favorite ways to get creative with frozen yogurt is by making a super simple frozen yogurt pie. It’s light, not going to break the healthy eating pattern, and will definitely satisfy any sweets craving you are having! My mom taught me how to make this (if you really need to be “taught” how to make this pie, it’s that simple) when I was in high school and I haven’t stopped since! You’ll want to start with a Quart (yes, you read that right) size of your favorite frozen yogurt flavor, from your favorite frozen yogurt shop (I chose chocolate malt, vanilla bean, and toffee for my flavors from my favorite Golden Spoon shop), and a reduced fat graham cracker crust (which you can find at any supermarket).

To get started you will remove all of the contents from the yogurt container into the graham cracker crust

Then, using a spatula, spread the yogurt around the crust evenly. Be gentle though, you don’t want to break the crust!

Then, decorate it in any way your heart desires! I am clearly loving the Valentine’s day holiday decorations, so I made mine with pink, red, and white sprinkles, and cut up some strawberries!

Cut yourself a serving based on how big of a piece your heart desires!
