Cooking Light Week – Day Seven: Frozen Peanut Butter-Banana Pie

Frozen Peanut Butter-Banana Pie

Oh my heaven. Yes…this pie is just that.
That is if peanut butter, banana and chocolate are your thing.

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…

Frozen Peanut Butter-Banana Pie

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.

Enjoy!

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

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup graham cracker cookies (about 10 sheets)
  • 2 TB sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg white
  • cooking spray

    Filling:

  • 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)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 would most likely get a stink eye if I asked for light cream cheese– wait.. I think I saw some…

    This pie looks fantastic.

    最近TVや雑誌で紹介されている家出掲示板では、全国各地のネットカフェ等を泊り歩いている家出娘のメッセージが多数書き込みされています。彼女たちはお金がないので掲示板で知り合った男性の家にでもすぐに泊まりに行くようです。あなたも書き込みに返事を返してみませんか

    No fair, this looks amazing, i want some!

  35. Ethan posted March 26, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    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!

  36. Megan posted March 28, 2011 at 11:11 am

    I bookmarked this for sure. I cant wait to try it!

  37. Elle posted March 28, 2011 at 11:47 am

    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!

  38. Shaina posted March 14, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    I have a soft spot for peanut butter in desserts. Love the frozen aspect along with the bananas.
