Frozen Yogurt Pie (low carb, grain free)



I absolutely LOVE this recipe. It is so delicious and perfect to serve at a brunch or as dessert on any holiday. It is made with a low carb crust and the base of the filling is greek yogurt. This recipe is so delicious, every time I make it my family devours it within 24 hours



RECIPE:


Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup almond flour

  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour

  • 1/2 Cup Monkfruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice)

  • 1/4 Cup coconut oil

  • 1 egg


Filling Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cup 0% plain greek yogurt

  • 5 Tbs Monkfruit sweetener (or sweetener of choice)

  • 2 Tbs high fiber syrup (I like Choc Zero)


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F,

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry crust ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, and sweetener),

  3. Add the coconut oil and egg to the same bowl,

  4. Using a spatula or clean hands, kneed together the mixture to create a fully incorporated dough (there should ne no dry crumbs left),

  5. Grease a pie pan or line a baking dish with parchment paper (to ensure the pie pops our easily after it sets),

  6. Press the dough into the pan to create an even base and press the dough up to the edges of the pan creating a rim atleast 3/4-1” high. TIP: It is important that the rim is even in height so when you pour the filling in, it does not spill over in any area.

  7. Use a fork to press small holes in the base of the crust (prevents the crust from bubbling),

  8. Bake the crust for 15 minutes,

  9. while the crust bakes, prepare the filling by combining all filling ingredients in a large bowl and whisking until smooth,

  10. Once the crust is ready, remove from the oven and allow to completely cool,

  11. Once the crust is cool, pour the filling inside it and top the pie with whatever toppings you choose (i love using fresh fruit or chocolate chips),

  12. Place the pie in the freezer for 3-4 hours and serve. TIP: you can prepare this recipe ahead by making the filling and crust, store them in the fridge and then assemble and freeze the pie a few hours before you plan to serve it. Alternatively, you can freeze the assembled pie ahead of time and then remove it from the freezer a few hours before you plan to serve it to allow it to thaw slightly.
