A Pie that is Quick, Healthy, Low Fat and Easy to Make

ingredients

Here is a pie that is simple to make and like the headline says it is quick, healthy, low fat and easy to make.  It’s called Yogurt Pudding Pie.  They don’t get much easier than this.  I friend told me about this and I am addicted to these pies.  So here goes.  This is how I do it and the ingredients I use.  I get a graham cracker pie crust the kind that are in the aluminum tins.  I get one Stonyfield Organic Plain Fat Free 32 ounce yogurt.  Then I get two JELL-O, Sugar Free, Fat Free INSTANT reduced calorie pudding and pie filling 1.4 ounce boxes.  You can get the flavors you want, I like Chocolate Fudge but you do need to get 2 boxes.  You can get 2 different flavors if you like, I did this once with a chocolate fudge layer and a vanilla layer in the same pie.  Yum!

1. Take the paper labeling off the plastic crust lid and toss it out.  Remove the plastic lid by bending the edge of the aluminum so you can get at the plastic lid’s edge.  Save the lid this will be your cover for the completed pie.

2. If you have a 1 quart Pyrex glass measuring cup add 1 1/2 cups of Fat Free yogurt to the measuring cup along with one 1.4 ounce packs of Instant JELL-O Pudding and mix together thoroughly with a spoon.  You need to do this vigorously, making sure to scrape the pudding mix from the sides of the measuring cup to get the pudding and yogurt well blended.

3. Now dump the pudding and yogurt mix into the pie crust and spread it out evenly in the bottom half of the piecrust.  Get as much of this mixture as you can, from the measuring cup into the crust.

4. Now you are going to repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining yogurt and pudding mix.  If you are using the same flavor pudding use the measuring cup as it is.  If you are going with a different flavor pudding wash the cup and then repeat steps 2 and 3 for the new flavor.  Tip: There will be a little extra yogurt left over, so sometimes I buy the larger piecrust that adds 2 pieces of pie.  When I do this, I use all of the remaining yogurt, with the second box of pudding and it fills the larger pie crust, nicely.

5. Now with the second mixture of yogurt and pudding thoroughly mixed, I add this to the pie crust and spread it evenly on the surface making it all level.  Now it looks like a pie.

6. Cover the pie with the plastic lid that you have saved but now put it with the plastic sticking up away from the pie.  Once the lid is in place just bend the aluminum down on the edge of the lid to keep it from coming loose and falling off the pie.  Tip: bend the lid down in 2 or 4 places rather than all the way around, this way you can open it more easily when you are ready to enjoy a piece of the pie.

7. Put the completed pie in the refrigerator to finish the setup of the yogurt and pudding mixture.  Continue to store it in the refrigerator until you have completed eating the pie.  Recycle the plastic lid and throw out the aluminum tin.

    I made a slightly less healthy version of this with an Oreo crust and the sugar-laden instant pudding and pie filling – plus used a whole 3.9 oz. box of chocolate fudge for the top layer of a banana cream (with banana layer between the bottom banana pudding and top chocolate fudge layers)and topped it off with a dusting of coconut flakes. Seriously, the world’s easiest pie….will be great in the summer when you don’t want to even THINK about turning on an oven. Thanks so much, Hal and happy new year!
