“This healthy pie recipe is made with fresh berries, a slimmed-down zwieback crumb crust, and a tangy yogurt filling and then served with mint sprigs and a colorful low-calorie fruit glaze.”

Ingredients

    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 1⅓ cups finely crushed rusk (10 to 12 slices) or zwieback (about 17 slices)
    • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 2 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla
    • ¾ cup low-calorie cranberry-raspberry drink
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 6 cups fresh raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and/or halved strawberries
    • 1½ cups frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
    • ¾ teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
    • Fresh mint sprigs (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Prepare crust: Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine finely crushed rusk and brown sugar. Add egg white and melted butter; stir until well mixed. Press mixture evenly onto bottom and up side of prepared pie plate. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edge is browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 2 Prepare filling: In a small bowl, combine yogurt, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  • 3 Meanwhile, prepare glaze: In a small saucepan, stir together cranberry-raspberry drink and cornstarch. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Transfer to a small bowl. Cover surface with plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours or until cooled.
  • 4 Spread yogurt mixture into crust-lined pie plate. In a large bowl, gently toss berries and cooled glaze. Spoon over yogurt mixture. Cover with foil; chill for 3 to 6 hours before serving.
  • 5 Prepare lemon topping: In a small bowl, combine whipped dessert topping and lemon peel.
  • 6 Serve each slice with fresh mint (optional) and lemon topping.
