Peach Pie that makes you SIGH…..

IMG_9806I know my photography isn’t great…..but you get the idea of how great this little pie is….for the next week or so, I will be blogging pictures and recipes from our Zumba Potluck up in Pinetop–You thought I did Zumba 3 times a week for the exercise?????  I do it for the POTLUCK we have in September.  I’m not kidding.  These ladies can cook!  This is from sweet Kathleen.  It’s a little like the lemon icebox dessert I posted a couple of months ago, but even better!!  Kathleen:  do you get how hard that is for me to admit???  (I mean….better???)  Anyway, here goes:

CREAMY FRUIT PIE

1 9 oz. graham cracker pie crust

1 8 oz. carton “Extra Creamy” Cool Whip (thawed)

2 – 6 oz. fruit yogurt:  Berry or Peach (this is Peach)

1/2 cup fresh (or frozen chopped fruit (to match yogurt)

Food coloring (if desired) to match fruit

6-8 slices fresh fruit for topping

With rubber scraper and wire whip, blend Cool Whip, Yogurt and food coloring.  Mix in chopped fruit.  Scoop into pie crust.  Smooth over top and top with fruit.  Freeze about 3 hours and serve PARTIALLY FROZEN.    Writer’s note:  I brought a few pieces of this home, (strictly for research purposes), and put in the freezer.  Several hours later we tasted it.  While still delicious, it needs to be thawed slightly to really enjoy.  Frozen solid was not quite as good……ask me how I know….  thanks Kathleen!

    1. somebody at Zumba asked if it could be healthier–she’s going to use real whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. (her concern is chemicals–real whipped is better but more fattening–I guess it all depends on what you call “healthy!”
