In order to speed up the freezing time, or to make a lighter texture, churn the yogurt in your ice cream maker for 5-10 minutes before spreading on top of the crust.
To make cutting easier, line pan with foil and then spray with cooking spray. Prepare as directed. When frozen, simply lift dessert out of pan and place on cutting board to cut.
