Patriotic Desserts

Well the other day I saw a big pan my mom had and thought it would be good to make the yogurt pie recipe into one big one and into a flag since the 4th of July was coming up. This week I was trying to get my ingredients, blueberries and whipped cream are extremely difficult to get in this country and especially since I’m in a small town. I was able to get yogurt, strawberries, gelatin and some cookies to crush to make the crust, I usually buy the ready made crusts. I had to look for ways to substitute or make my own whipped cream, I used a recipe I found online.


Only had to use one package of cookies for the crust.


Would’ve been better to use a 9×13 because clearly this pan was bigger.


I made the whipped cream in a blender.


Dissolved the gelatin.


Added the yogurt.


Then the whipped cream.


Spread it on the crust then to the fridge it went.


Used strawberries for the red stripes, melted white chocolate for the white stripes and blue candy for the blue area.


Dipped some strawberries in white chocolate and then blue sprinkles for the striped effect. Not to bad for my first attempt even though my dad bought me cookies n cream instead of plain white chocolate, there wasn’t any other.


Found my mother’s cake stand!


I had leftover coconut milk so I decided to make piña coladas, still in the patriotic spirit.



Hope you all enjoy your 4th of July weekend!

Original pie recipe here

Whipped cream is 1 cup milk, 2 tbsp corn starch and after well combined 1 tbsp flour.

The piña colada was not measured at all.
