Ingredients

  • 5 cups plain low-fat or fat-free yogurt* or 2 cups plain fat-free Greek-style yogurt**
  • 1 unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 8 - ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute*** equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 purchased reduced-fat graham cracker crumb pie shell
  • 3/4 cup frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed (optional)
  • Chocolate curls (optional)

Directions

  1. For yogurt cheese: Line a yogurt strainer, sieve, or a small colander with three layers of 100%-cotton cheesecloth or a clean paper coffee filter. Suspend lined strainer, sieve, or colander over a large bowl. Spoon yogurt into the strainer, sieve, or colander. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator. Discard liquid. You should have 2 to 2-1/2 cups yogurt cheese. Set yogurt cheese aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over the milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Heat and stir milk mixture over low heat just until gelatin is dissolved. Gradually whisk in cream cheese until melted. Add chocolate; heat and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir about one-fourth of the yogurt cheese or Greek-style yogurt into the chocolate mixture until smooth. Fold in the remaining yogurt cheese or Greek-style yogurt. Spread mixture evenly in the pie shell.
  4. Cover pie loosely and chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 24 hours before serving. Cut into wedges to serve. If desired, top each serving with dessert topping and chocolate curls.

Tip

  • *Test Kitchen Tip: Be sure to use a brand of yogurt that contains no gums, gelatin, or fillers. These ingredients may prevent the whey from separating from the curd to make yogurt cheese.

Tip

  • **Test Kitchen Tip: If you use Greek-style yogurt, omit Step 1.
