This is a fairly simple recipe filled with smooth, creamy vanilla ice cream and topped with a rich pasteurized cream cheese frosting.

Start the pie shell out by melting some unsweetened yogurt and then pour in about one tablespoon of coffee cake mix and press it into the bottom and sides of your Graham cracker shell. Then scoop out about two cups of the coffee cake mix and gently mix it in with the Graham cracker shell to seal it. Place into your refrigerator and let it freeze until it is solid again.

Just use brewed, hot water in a saucepan, toss in a few frozen strawberries or raspberries, and you have a delectable treat.
