This sous vide yogurt pie is with blueberry-mint sauce is like is like a healthy, or healthier, cheesecake. The yogurt takes a while to cook in the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker, and there are quite a few steps involved in making the ginger-snap crust, but trust us: it’s totally worth it.

NOTE: When you’re cooking something for this long, be sure to check the water level in your pot from time to time. You’ll most likely lose some to evaporation and you need to keep enough water in your vessel to keep your Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker running. We’ve found that covering it with plastic wrap or foil really helps with water loss.
