Cooking Light Week – Day Seven: Frozen Peanut Butter-Banana Pie
It’s my thing for sure. As a matter of fact, a pie like this – light or not – is really not safe in my house. A pie like this could quickly disappear without the family even knowing about it. Yeah, it’s scary like that. But I promise I will share…
This dessert is a perfect treat for our upcoming warm summer nights. It’s simple to put together and even easier to put in the freezer until it’s ready to serve.
Oh and if peanut butter and banana aren’t your thing, but chocolate is…check out Jamie’s Triple Chocolate Cheesecake recipe over at Mom’s Cooking Club for our last day of Cooking Light!
Frozen Peanut Butter-Banana Pie
- 1 cup graham cracker cookies (about 10 sheets)
- 2 TB sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg white
- cooking spray
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter (I used Smuckers Natural Chunky)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (8-ounce) container frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
- 1 1/2 cups sliced banana (about 2 bananas)
- 1/4 cup fat-free chocolate sundae syrup (I used a crunchy chocolate topping)
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Place cookies in a food processor; process until finely ground. Add sugar, butter and egg white; pulse 6 times or just until combined. Press crumb mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes; cool completely on a wire rack.
- Place 3/4 cup brown sugar, cream cheese, peanut butter, and vanilla in a mixing bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Arrange banana in bottom of prepared crust. Spread peanut butter mixture over banana; drizzle with syrup. Cover and freeze 8 hours; let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.

Oh, truly.. oh surely yes! I would just dive into this = )

I have just one word for you: NOM!
I’ve made this pie so many times and it’s always a hit! No one ever guesses that it’s from CL!
No fair, this looks amazing, i want some!
Thanks for stumbling this. It’s impossible to catch up on everything people have posted over the years, so it’s fun to show off some “classic” dishes. I like every word in the title of that recipe!
I bookmarked this for sure. I cant wait to try it!
A classic combo made better by freezing, I say! My kids would adore this when the weather’s warmer. Wait, what am I saying? They’d love this even it’s below zero!
I have a soft spot for peanut butter in desserts. Love the frozen aspect along with the bananas.
