Yogurt is our family’s go-to for breakfast, particularly on school days when we are rushing against the clock. I personally love the fact that yogurt provides a good source of protein and calcium, along with other important nutrients. And my kids enjoy the taste so it is a win-win in our household. We were recently introduced to Sola 2% Greek Yogurt, a better choice for families seeking yogurt options lower in sugar. Admittedly, some yogurt varieties we have tried are sour, which is why we were excited to try this new healthy alternative that still boasts a flavor and texture we expect from yogurt. And since I like to get creative, I thought I’d use Sola’s 2% Greek Yogurt in an easy No-Bake Frozen Yogurt Pie.
Sola 2% Greek Yogurt
Sola 2% Greek Yogurt was co-founded by Dr. Bosarge, a leader in regenerative medical research, and Chef Ryan Turner, a culinary expert in low-carb diets. Sola was developed to give families a wellness option. With sugar rampant in products across the grocery store, they set out to find a healthy sugar alternative that would taste and act like sugar when baked and cooked.
Sola Sweetener is a blend of Tagatose (a sugar derived from milk), Monk Fruit, and Stevia Leaf. This sweetener contains 75% Less Calories than sugar, Zero Net Carbs and Zero Glycemic Response. It is also free from artificial colors and flavors.
Sola 2% Greek Yogurt is available at select supermarkets nationwide along with Amazon. There are five available flavors including Plain, Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach, and Vanilla. We picked up several of each variety to try with granola and fruit for breakfast. What I noticed is that is mildly sweet with a very smooth, creamy consistency.
No-Bake Frozen Yogurt Pie
With so many ways to enjoy yogurt during breakfast, I decided to use Sola 2% Greek Yogurt to create a no-bake frozen yogurt pie. This lighter, mildly-sweet pie features creamy yogurt, a hint of sweetener, and fresh berries. I used the Vanilla Yogurt, but you could easily use any of the varieties available and top with the corresponding fruit.
- 2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter
- 24 ounces Vanilla Yogurt
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup optional
- fresh berries strawberries, blueberries
Combine graham crackers in a small bowl
Add in melted butter and mix until crumbly
Press into a 9" pie plate and set aside
Combine yogurt with maple syrup
Pour yogurt mixture into the crust
Freeze until firm (approximately 4 hours)
fTop with fresh berries and serve
Dessert doesn’t have to be overly sweet or filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce. My kids absolutely devoured this no-bake frozen yogurt pie. Plus, it’s a simple way to get in a bit of the good (aka healthy) stuff. But you don’t have to tell your kids!
