Summer Berry No-Bake Greek Yogurt Pie with a Granola Cashew Crust

Summer Berry No-Bake Greek Yogurt Pie with a Granola Cashew Crust / Patty's FoodToday I’m sharing a berry pie that you don’t have to turn on your oven to make.  That’s right, a no-bake dessert that can be made using your refrigerator which means no added heat from the oven to your already warm kitchen.  There is nothing like a heat wave the week before the 4th of July to make us turn to outdoor cooking for dinner.  But, I still want to have pie for dessert and I don’t want to make pie on my grill, although I’m sure it would be wonderful.  I want a nice cold piece of pie that is creamy from Greek yogurt, crunchy from a granola cashew crust and wonderfully loaded with fresh berries drizzled with honey on top.

Many recipes for easy no-bake pies are loaded with hidden and not so hidden fats, this one is not even pretending to be one of those pies.  I created an easy to prepare and lighter no-bake pie for a warm Summer’s night dessert.  I think you will find this recipe a breeze to prepare and versatile enough to substitute other kinds of fresh fruit on top, like sliced peaches.Summer Berry No-Bake Greek Yogurt Pie with a Granola Cashew Crust / Patty's Food

Summer Berry No-Bake Greek Yogurt Pie with a Granola Cashew Crust

Yield: 8 pieces of pie

Ingredients

  • for the crust
  • 1 cup granola, I used Flax Plus Pumpkin Flax Granola
  • 1/2 cup roasted unsalted whole cashews
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • for the Greek Yogurt filling
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt, I used Dannon Light & Fit vanilla flavored
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • for the berries
  • 2 baskets fresh strawberries, rinsed, tops removed and cut in half, or quarters for larger berries
  • 1 basket blueberries, rinsed
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey, depending on how sweet you like

Instructions

  1. make the crust
  2. Place the granola and cashews in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until mixture forms crumbs
  3. Add in the melted butter and pulse until mixture comes together.
  4. Press the crust mixture into a 9" quiche or pie pan coming up the sides about half way, cover with pressed in plastic wrap and place in freezer for at least one hour.
  5. make the Greek Yogurt filling
  6. Wipe out the food processor bowl and pour in the yogurt, sour cream, honey and vanilla. Process until well blended, scraping down checking for hidden pockets of honey on the bottom of the bowl.
  7. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator, at least one hour.
  8. make the berry topping
  9. Place the cut up strawberries and blueberries in a bowl, drizzle on honey. Let the berry mixture rest at room temperature until juices start to form on the bottom of the bowl.
  10. make the pie
  11. Remove the now frozen crust from the freezer and spread on the yogurt filling.
  12. Spoon the berries which will now be juicy on top, leave some of the juice in the bowl as it will most likely be too much and make your pie soggy.
  13. Serve immediately.

  1. Patty, this looks and sounds amazing!!

  2. A very healthy dessert that I can even enjoy for the breakfast. Excellent!

  3. What a scrumptious summer dessert! The no-bake is quite appealing. I very much like the idea of putting together the pie the night before or morning of and finishing with berries just before serving. (I can’t imagine a better use for yogurt!)

  4. So pretty and the sound of the granola and cashew crust is irresistible, Patty!

  5. Mary Hirsch says:

    This looks yummy, Patty, and, except for Flax Plus Granola, I have everything in my pantry or fridge most of the time. I’m sure the granola in my cupboard would work fine. Seems easy peasy and I will give it a try.

  6. Oh Patty, this looks so beautiful and so delicious! I love that you’ve made it so healthy too.

  7. That is one delicious looking pie, Patty! I love that it’s made with yogurt…yummy!

  8. Your pictures are mesmerizing – I wish I could come hang out in your kitchen!

  9. If I made this for my parents, they’d be over the moon – it’s everything they love and so pretty! Maybe I should find an excuse to bake for them. :)
