This is a recipe my neighbor gave me yesterday. I loved the idea of it because it was so easy, and you don’t have to heat up the kitchen if you don’t want to. By purchasing a pre-made graham cracker crust, all you have to do is assemble it and refrigerate it. This recipe is also really versatile. He said you can make it any flavor just by changing the flavor of the jello, yogurt and fruit. He told me he’s already done a lemon, key lime and peach flavor. (For the lemon and lime flavors, he doesn’t add fruit, and it only makes one pie.) You can also make this pie very low sugar and light in calories by using sugar free jello, sugar free or lowfat yogurt and lite cool whip.
(This recipe makes 2 regular or 1 deep dish pie)
For the crust –
2 ready made graham cracker crusts or
8 whole graham crackers
1/3 cup butter
