Another fun morning to be had in the frozen hamlet of Howell! This is a pic of me and my breakfast buddies this morning on the Foodini Friday show at WHMI...
BAKER MIKE MARINO'S
COOL & CREAMY YOGURT SMOOTHIE PIE
2 6 oz containers strawberry Greek yogurt
2 cups Cool Whip fat free whipped topping
1 prepared graham cracker crust
(or Mike's alternative, Morning Oat Crunch cereal rolled into crumbs and mixed with melted butter
Spoon yogurt into medium bowl. Add whipped topping and stir gently with wire whisk until well blended. Spoon into prepared crust.
Freeze pie at least two hours, or until pie is firm enough to hold its shape when cut into slices to serve. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
RECIPE TIP: For a Double Strawberry Yogurt Pie, stir one cup chopped strawberries into yogurt before mixing with the shipped topping.
RECIPE TIP: For a GREAT summer pie, freeze 4 hours or overnight until firm. When ready to serve, remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature about 15 minutes or until pie can be cut easily. Store leftovers in freezer.
RECIPE TIP: Feel free to substitute other flavors - Mike made a strawberry pie and a blueberry pie - both equally delicious, since I felt it was my civic duty to try both!
What a cool and refreshing way to start the day - thanks guys!
