Gluten Free Yogurt Pie

When I heard it was National Pi Day yesterday I decided it was a great excuse to make a pie.  I decided to do our favorite yogurt pie.  It is low fat, easy and YUMMY!!!  I was first introduced to this yogurt pie when I was dating my husband.  It has been a favorite of ours ever since.  Recently we added the berries to it and love it even more!!

Graham Cracker Crust (I will share the recipe I use below)
8 oz cool whip
2- 8 oz yogurts (we like to use berry flavors - 2 different ones)
1 cup fruit (optional)

 I use the Graham Cracker Crust recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens Cook Book:
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs - Gluten Free of course

Mix in a small bowl then press into a 9" pie plate.  Either chill for one hour or bake at 375 degrees for 4-5 minutes.  Cool before filling.

 Beat cool whip and yogurt together until mixed.  Fold in fruit.  Pour into crust.  Put in freezer until set or frozen.  (I had some extra graham cracker crumbs so I put some on top.)

Enjoy a low fat treat!!!
