This pie is bursting with strawberry goodness – perfect for a spring or summer soiree.

Ingredients

Strawberries

2 pound(s), hulled, sliced (save 3 small berries for garnish)

Sugar

¾ cup(s), granulated

Cranberry juice cocktail

1 tbsp(s), or cranberry-strawberry juice

Cornstarch

¼ cup(s)

Reduced-fat graham cracker pie crust

6 oz

Fat-free vanilla yogurt

1 cup(s), Greek-style

Lemon zest

1 tsp(s), finely grated

Instructions

  1. Combine 750 ml (3 cups) sliced strawberries, sugar and juice in a medium saucepan.
  2. Mash berries in pan with a potato masher; stir in cornstarch and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until very thick, about 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat; let cool slightly and then stir in remaining sliced strawberries. Scrape into pie crust.
  4. Let cool slightly; cover loosely with plastic lid from pie crust. Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours (you can then freeze the pie for a little while if desired, to make it easier to slice).
  5. To serve, in a medium bowl, stir together vanilla yogurt and lemon zest until blended. Spread on top of pie, leaving a border around edges so strawberry filling shows. Slice reserved strawberries and use them to garnish pie. Slice pie into 10 pieces and serve.
  6. Yields 1 piece per serving.
