Jello and Yogurt Pie

"This is light, healthy and delicious. A great summer dessert. Although this is fantastic in a graham cracker pie crust, I think it would be good using Vanilla wafers too. Also, it is wonderful without the pie crust, just add some fresh fruit and you have an awesome pudding. NOTE: Match or mix the jello and yogurt flavors."

  1. I have made this pie many times. Try 1/4 cup lemon juice instead of water and use lemon flavored yogurt. It really brings out the lemon taste.
  2. This is actually pretty easy to do sugar-free, too. All of the ingredients except the crust are readily available in sugar-free versions. For the crust, make your own out of crumbled sugar-free cookies and melted butter. I like to do lime yogurt with lime Jell-o. It's not key lime pie, but it's not far off for how fast it comes together,
  3. This turned out very nice! I made mine with lemon jello and Dannon lite and fit vanilla (which I had to use 3 cartons as they were only 4 ounces each). I was more than a bit concerned when I added the yogurt to the jello mixture as the coldness of the yogurt hit the jello and it set up partially on the bottom of my bowl. But if I did end up losing a small amount of jello, I was happy to find that there was plenty of flavor in the finished product. I put the pie mix into 6 of those graham cracker tarts and found I had about 4-6 ounces of the pie mix extra so I popped that into a small sealable bowl. I would say the mixture tried to weep as I filled the tarts, so I had to keep restirring and worked quickly to get it all into the refrigerator to set up. Much nicer than I expected- I am eager to try this with many other flavors of jello and perhaps make some differently flavored and layered parfaits. Now wouldn't that call for a Shrek film fest?

  4. I've made this pie many times, with different flavors and it's a wonderfully light dessert. Key Lime and Harvest Peach have been my favorite flavors of yogurt to use.


<img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> It has taken me a long time to update this page, but this website has been one that I go to every single day (okay, maybe every other day, but you get the idea), so I finally decided I should share a little about myself and my family. I am a Registered Nurse part-time and a full-time mother of two beautiful daughters. My husband I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary this year. Being with my family is a great joy to me and cooking for them is a pleasure! I love to try new foods and I am fortunate that so does everyone else in the family (well, except the 5 year old who is "picky" - but at least occasionally starting to try new foods!). RecipeZaar helps me explore new food and has given me many yummy "repeat" recipes that have become "standard" in our home. Thanks to everyone who posts, reviews and shares tips on this website. Thanks, too, to those who maintain RecipeZaar's website - all your hard work and attention to detail are what set this site way above any other recipe site. It is great to have a "world wide cookbook" at my fingertips!!
