{No Bake} Blackberry Yogurt Pie




This pie is so pretty, isn't it?  It screams summer? Yep, I think it does.
It's not really a frozen pie though.  It looks frozen in this picture..a little?  It's yogurt pie. A small back story... I had to grab a piece of it and stash it in the freezer.  Usually, it not that tough to get an extra slice of something to get a picture of it.  A few reminders to people do help.  My 6 year old does ask "have you taken a picture of this yet? Can we eat it now?"  But, with this pie that was going to be tough.  It was vanishing at a rapid speed.  Stashing a slice in the freezer to shoot at a later time was my only alternative.  Hence..the bit of a frozen look to it.  The taste?  Wow..it not only screams summer to look at, but, it tastes like summer. Cold, fruity, soft and  delicious.  Plus, it's no bake.  No stove. No over heating your kitchen.  
It's a perfect summertime treat.
