In this healthy strawberry daiquiri-inspired ice cream pie recipe, graham crackers make an easy and tasty crust for the strawberry, rum and lime filling made with nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt. For a nonalcoholic “virgin” daiquiri pie, omit the rum.

  • 2 cups coarsely crumbled graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries, divided
  • 2 tablespoons white rum
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest, divided

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare the crust: Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.
  2. Process graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground. Add oil and process until well combined. Using your fingertips or the back of a spoon, press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Bake until just set, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3. To make the filling: Whip cream in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until starting to thicken. Add sugar and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in yogurt.
  4. Clean out the bowl of the food processor and puree 1 cup strawberries. Gently fold the strawberry puree, rum and 2 teaspoons lime zest into the yogurt-cream mixture.
  5. Spread the flavored yogurt-cream mixture into the cooled crust. Top with the remaining 1 cup strawberries and remaining 1 teaspoon lime zest. Freeze until very firm, at least 5 hours. To serve, let the pie stand at room temperature until softened slightly, about 15 minutes, before slicing.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Once frozen, wrap airtight and freeze for up to 1 week. Let stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.
  • Equipment: 9-inch pie pan (not deep dish)
  • Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food.

Lovely ice cream pie Great recipe! Cost friendly in the summer too. It does freeze solid though, so it might be a good idea to leave it out to defrost for longer. Pros: Tastes refreshing, beautiful looking Cons: Might need some more time defrosting
