If you’re someone who’s busy baking holiday treats or making candy let me say right up front that this Sugar-Free Raspberry Yogurt Pie is probably not going to excite you. This recipe is for those people who write to me begging for a Phase One Dessert option, or anyone who needs to severely limit their intake of sugar at this time of year. And it’s also great for people like me who aren’t really that interested in baking but wants something sweet once in a while.
The recipe was sent to me by a reader named Kate, who shared it on Facebook. Kate used lemon sugar-free jello, which sounded great but I never did find it in any of the stores by me. Instead I used raspberry flavor, which I thought made it look slightly Christmassy, if you use your imagination. I thought the yogurt pie was pretty good, but I liked it best layered into a parfait with whipped topping (which admittedly probably makes it less Phase One Friendly and maybe a bit higher in carbs.)
You need a large package of sugar-free jello (or 2 small packages) and a 32 oz. package of plain non-fat yogurt to make this. I used my favorite Greek yogurt, but Kate didn’t specify Greek yogurt so I’m guessing regular non-fat plain yogurt will work just fine. Mixing the jello powder with the plain yogurt is the hardest part of the recipe! (I’m using a huge 8 cup measuring cup here.)
Microwave the jello-yogurt mixture on high for 1 1/2 minutes, then give it a good stir and microwave for another 1 minute. Pour the heated yogurt mixture into a glass pie plate that you’ve sprayed with nonstick spray and put it in the refrigerator for 3 hours or until firmly set.
After 3 hours, take the pie out, cut into slices, and serve (with a dollop of whipped cream or whipped topping if you’d like.)
And as I said, layered into a glass with whipped topping to make a parfait was my favorite way to eat this. (The South Beach Diet Supercharged lists “whipped topping, light or fat free as being limited to 2 tablespoons for Phase One, so if you’re eating this for Phase One, I’d stick with the pie. Other low-carb diets would prefer actual whipped cream if you’re making this option.)
