Gluten Free/Dairy Free Frozen Yogurt Pie

There are quite a few things that I have missed since going dairy free. 

For me, eliminating dairy was waaaay harder then the gluten. Partially, because dairy doesn't give me as extreme of side effects, and because there just is no worth while substitute for ooey gooey cheese.

I miss you so much cheese.

I often sit and contemplate the existence of cheese, ice cream and other delicious dairy products in my life. Should I just do it anyway? It will taste so good. Worth it or not?

My brain is obviously filled with very deep philosophical thoughts.

There are several alternatives to cows milk in the world, such as the milks of almonds, coconuts, rice, etc.
I generally only choose to partake of products of the almond or coconut variety, because they seem to be the only ones worth partaking of.

One thing I have been waiting and waiting for to exist is a dairy free cool whip. As I'm typing this, I realize I could have probably just made my own this whole time, so obviously I wasn't missing it that much, but still.

I think its one of those things you don't realize you miss as much as you do, until its back in your life. Like Britney Spears. 
Crossroads you guys, a cinematic masterpiece.

Thankfully, So Delicious has heard my psychic vibes and created a coconut milk answer to cool whip. 
Cocowhip is it's name, deliciousness is it's game.

{I legit just changed my spotify station to britney. not even kidding.}  

Growing up, there was a few recipes that were in constant rotation.
One of these was frozen yogurt pie.
It's incredibly easy and quick, and is probably the very first food item I ever made by myself.

Don't quote me on that, but it probably was.

To make yogurt pie, all you gotta do is make a graham cracker crust (I used Kinnikinnick S'moreable Graham Crackers) and fill it with a mixture of yogurt and cool whip. Then freeze! The waiting for it to freeze is seriously the hardest part of the whole thing, I'm pretty sure there were several times when this pie got served only partially frozen due to anxious eaters.

For your benefit, I tested this recipe with three miniature pies made with three different types of dairy free yogurt. 
The brown pie, is So Delicious almond yogurt in chocolate. 
The lighter of the pink, was So Delicious coconut yogurt in strawberry, and the darker pink was Almond Dream mixed berry.
Of the three, the berry flavors where my favorites, with the strawberry coconut yogurt winning as the best in my opinion.

p.s. these are the pans I used, if you were wondering

Here is the recipe, strait outta the family cookbook:

Excuse me now, while I proceed to recite every lyric to Baby One More Time. It's funny how these things just stick in your head forever, ya?
Kinda like how I could still make yogurt pie in my sleep...ten years later.
Sorry, had to bring it back around.

Enjoy! xoxox
