I have a love for vanilla bean flavored anything. My personal favorite is vanilla bean ice cream. While shopping at my local Walmart, I stumbled upon the new Müller’s® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. I couldn’t help but grab at least one of every variety, but I grabbed several of the vanilla bean flavor. I knew I wanted to make something with the yogurt, and I wanted my creation to retain the yogurt’s flavor. I recalled my great-grandmother making an icebox pie. I had never attempted to make one, but I remembered they weren’t too complex. I think my great-grandmother would be proud of my Vanilla Bean Icebox Pie. It wasn’t too shabby for a first attempt. I opted for a chocolate ganache that I garnished with almonds.

Icebox pies are relatively simple. They require only a handful of ingredients and set up in the freezer. This recipe is basically butter cookies, butter, yogurt, whipped cream, dark chocolate, and optional almonds. It took less than 15 minutes to make and requires about two hours in the freezer. You basically want it to freeze so that it will release from the springform pan.

This Vanilla Bean Icebox Pie was delicious, and disappeared quickly. It’s great because you can prep it the night before a family dinner, and you’re not spending extra time cooking. My entire family had a “Me Moment” at dinner.

  1. This would be the perfect treat to keep in the freezer and slice myself a piece after the kids go to bed. Now to figure out how to hide it from them. #client

    1. That’s what I love about it, you don’t have to worry about pie spoiling quickly. You can store it sliced for a few weeks.
