Key Lime Greek Yogurt Pie

The Means: I own a pie plate and my fridge is perpetually stocked with Greek yogurt.

The Motive: I’ve been wanting to post a Key Lime Pie recipe on this blog forever and finally found a terrific on-the-side recipe from Chobani.

The Opportunity: It’s Pie Day!

I am guilty of pie!

Honestly, it doesn’t take a lot to convince me to make pie. But in this particular case the stars did align in such a way that making this particular Key Lime Greek Yogurt Pie at this point in time just seemed like the perfect thing to do.

If you love the mouthwatering tartness of a traditional Key Lime Pie like I do, you’ll find the addition of yogurt here to be especially refreshing. Yogurt is mixed into the key lime custard itself and it’s also used for the topping, sweetened with a little confectioner’s sugar (a healthier alternative to whipped cream!). One important thing to keep in mind when using yogurt as a topping, however, is that it does tend to separate after a while. So if you’re planning to serve just a few slices at a time, it’s best to dollop your slices individually rather than the pie as a whole. Take three guesses as to how I know this!

So, as I mentioned, today is Pie Day (not to be confused with the Pi(e) Day on 3.14 we previously celebrated with another terrific Greek yogurt pie). Nearly 200 food bloggers will be posting pies today for no other reason than we like pie. It’s as good a reason as any, right?

Chobani was kind enough to include me in a dinner event they held for food bloggers in Seattle recently.

I make key lime bars that are similar without the yogurt. I finish by topping with toasted coconut, which might be good on this pie. I’ll try it and let you know.
