Frozen Yogurt Pie

This is wicked easy and wicked fast and on a hot summer day, it's also wicked refreshing!

The first time I made this was for my own baby shower. It was a surprise baby shower, so I had no idea that's what I was really making it for. My friend Joyce said it was a surprise birthday party for the office manager.

I really didn't want to go. Plus she'd asked me to bring a raspberry and a blueberry frozen yogurt pie. She said she was running short on prep time and really needed the help.

I made them, then tried to beg off of the party, saying I'd just drop off the pies. She convinced me to come, with promises of A/C and being political correct by putting in an appearance for the boss.

Fine... I went... I guess it's a good thing I showed up, because I was the guest of honor!

Now on to the lime...

The Key Lime Pie yogurt had a very mild flavor on it's own...

So I added the juice & zest of one lime...

I decorated this one with sugared lime slices...

I'm not great at cutting a pretty slice of pie...

But this is so easy. It goes together in 5 minutes. And you can just make one or two to have on hand in-case of unexpected guests.

It's creamy and flavorful and so versatile. You can use any flavors of yogurt and whatever kinds of garnishes you like!

Those do sound easy and refreshing!

That's funny, we did the same thing to a cousin - convinced her we were throwing a baby shower for another friend and had her cooking/cleaning for what turned out to be her own bridal shower. :)
