Creamy Frozen Blueberry Peach Pie
Here is a frozen pie filled with fresh, ripe fruit in pretty layers like a parfait, but even though it will look like you spent hours over it, it is ridiculously simple to make.
Peaches are a yearly summer miracle, and blueberries are some of the best antioxidants around. Combine them with frozen yogurt and you end up with a dessert that is the perfect end to a late-summer meal. Read the recipe for Creamy Frozen Blueberry Peach Pie here.
2 pints good-quality vanilla frozen yogurt, softened
1 cup fresh blueberries, picked over for stems, or frozen blueberries, thawed
1 cup fresh peaches or nectarines, pitted and sliced
1 prepared graham cracker crust
1. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 pint of the frozen yogurt with the blueberries, mashing with the back of a wooden spoon until well combined.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the other pint of frozen yogurt with the peaches, mashing to combine.
3. Spread one half of the blueberry mixture over the bottom of the crust. Spread half of the peach mixture over that, then repeat with the remaining blueberry mixture, and top with the remaining peach mixture.
4. Cover pie with plastic wrap and freeze until completely set, at least 3 hours or up to 1 week.
