{Easy} Strawberry Greek Yogurt Pie



What is so great about Strawberry Greek Yogurt pie is how easy to make. There's no baking involved, just mixing and freezing. And the Greek yogurt makes it so creamy...I just love it. Here's what you need:


Ingredients
Graham cracker pie crust
2 (6 oz) containers strawberry Greek Yogurt
1/2 c. fresh strawberries, pureed 
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip

Directions

Using a stick mixer or blender, puree strawberries. 


Pour strawberries into a large mixing bowl. Mix in yogurt and Cool Whip until all ingredients are well blended.






Spoon into the graham cracker crust and freeze for 3 hours.





Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

Mini Taco Bites




Now that the weather is warming up, my family has gone from eating Crock Pot meals all the time to lighter, more snacky food. We're on the go a lot in the spring and summer months so making big meals just doesn't work for us. Mini Taco Bites are one of our favorites this time of year! They're easy to make and can be a meal or just a snack. Here's what you need:


Ingredients
Soft taco shells
Ground beef
1 packet Taco seasoning
Onions, chopped
Refried Beans
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
Jalapeno peppers
Sour cream
Any other topping you like!

Directions

1. Using a biscuit cutter, cut 12 small circles out of the soft taco shells. Microwave for 15 seconds with a damp paper towel covering the shells to soften them. Place them in a muffin tin. 





Brown and drain your ground beef and finish preparing it according to the Taco seasoning directions. Set out everything you want to put in your taco bites and layer the ingredients in the taco shells. 






I put meat on the bottom, then onions, refried beans, cheese and then topped with Jalapeno peppers. 






Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Top with sour cream. 




That's it! Your mini taco bites are ready. For more recipes, check out the Recipes page!
