I have a fast easy pie that I make in the summer.
Graham cracker crust..pre made if you like.
1 Container of any flavor yogurt.  I particularly like Raspberry for this.
1 small container of frozen whipped topping stuff, thawed. Or if you like whipping cream, whipped.
Fresh or frozen berries that go with the flavor of yogurt.
Stir the yogurt to make it smooth and get any large lumps out.
Fold in the whipped topping or whipped cream.
If you are using berries stir the berries in as well.
Pour into the pie crust.
Refrigerate.

This is even good without the crust and serve in wine glasses or other individual serving size containers.

Light and creamy and a refreshing dessert.  I have even used lemon yogurt and it is very good.
I like the thicker type yogurts for this, like the custard style that Yoplait has but any yogurt will work.
If you want a stronger yogurt flavor just add another container of yogurt.

Best thing...no turning the oven on.

Nellie, I have used the single serve containers that come in flavors.  Since some of the flavors now come in the large containers 1 Cup would be what I would use for the pie.
I also think the Greek yogurt would be best but they often do not come in flavors so if you get the regular yogurt in a flavor I would drain it for a little bit to thicken it up some.  That is why in the past I have used the Custard style that Yoplait has.  It is much thicker than some of the other varieties.

Thanks Verlee and Nikki for the great recipes.  These sound like they would be great for everyday or for company.  The yogurt one sounds perfect for me right now, no chewing required lol.

That sounds great. I like to try the Carnation ice cream and sorbet recipes on this site. I also use vanilla ice cream mixed with the easy pumpkin pie mix for pumpkin spice ice cream or with pure pumpkin and add in other goodies like granola or choclate morsels or raisins and rum. Yum.
