*EDITED TO ADD: If you like bananas, try a similar version of this pie, peanut butter banana yogurt pie!*
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’m just going to glide right over the fact that Syracuse lost their first basketball game of the season and tell you that the sun was out two days in a row (practically unheard of in January up here) and my mom’s birthday was Saturday. Much more happy. Anyway, it was mom’s birthday and in rare Liz fashion, I didn’t bake her a cake. I know what you’re thinking – what kind of daughter-with-a-baking-blog am I? Well, don’t worry, we still indulged, just with a creamy peanut butter yogurt pie instead!
See, I’ve been on the Greek yogurt train for well over a year now, but mom just recently jumped aboard this past summer. I’ve told her before, I’m pretty sure she’s single-handedly keeping Chobani in business these days. Knowing how much she loves the good stuff, I decided I should incorporate Greek yogurt into her birthday dessert. I’ve recently learned that vanilla Greek yogurt with a little peanut butter stirred in makes a delicious (and healthy) little snack and well, lo and behold, it’s delicious as a pie, too!
I had actually planned to add powdered sugar and whipped cream to the pie filling too, but found it really didn’t need it. Obviously, I’m pretty sure powdered sugar and whipped cream can do no wrong and you could add them if you want a sweeter, more indulgent pie… I’d say 1/4 cup powdered sugar, 1 cup whipped cream… but trust me when I say that if you try the simple version below, you won’t be disappointed!
