I have SUCH a huge sweet tooth in the afternoons. I can’t be alone here. It’s so hard to not just grab a handful of cookies or chocolate! I love yogurt though, and generally don’t think of it as a dessert…unless it’s in one of these mini cream pie cups. Aren’t they cute? I had a bunch of these plastic cups leftover from a party and they are just the right size for an individual portion.
These mini cream pie cups would be the perfect dessert to serve at a shower or afternoon luncheon. They are simple, but so pretty at the same time. You can use whatever flavor of yogurt you’d like, but I like sticking with the pie flavors: banana cream, key lime, and lemon meringue. The tart from the lemon and lime flavors blend perfectly with the sweetness of the whipped cream.
I asked my son what he’d like for dessert for his birthday recently (my kids aren’t huge fans of cake) and he said, “Can you make a pie?” I asked him what kind and he asked for key lime. I told him I hadn’t ever made key lime pie before and he said, “How about those mini ones you made?” Haha, he was referring to these. I made them with key lime yogurt a few years back and he loved them. Using yogurt is a heck of a lot easier than making the real deal, but it’s best to make mini pies vs. a large one unless you plan on serving it frozen so that the slices keep their shape.
Mini Cream Pie in a Cup
Each mini cream pie cup will need:
2 crushed graham crackers
1 (5.3 oz) container of Greek Yogurt
3 T. whipped cream
fruit for a garnish
Add a layer of graham cracker crumbs to the bottom of the cup followed by a container of yogurt.
Add whipped cream, fruit, and sprinkle with extra graham cracker crumbs.
May be made an hour or two ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.
The perfect mid-afternoon snack and SO easy to make!
