Frozen Yogurt Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

Here's the Dish

Creamy. Peanut Butter. Banana. Pie…. I’m pretty sure those few words say it all, and that  I don’t need to say much more about this pie to make it desirable! However I just may point out the fact that it has less than 150 calories per serving, and that it is low in sugar, and high in protein! As the summer winds down, what better way to say ‘farewell’ to these fine summer days than with this frozen yogurt peanut butter banana pie!?! 

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 4 Hours or Overnight.

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8×8 springform pie pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. 

2

To make the crust, place vanilla wafers, melted butter, and sweetener in a food processor, and pulse until mixture resembles wet coarse sand. (If you don’t have a food processor, blend cookies in a blender, until they resemble coarse sand, and place in a bowl with butter and sweetener. Mix until well combined.) Press crust into prepared pan to form crust. Bake for 10 minutes, and remove from the oven. Let cool to room temperature. 

3

To make the pie filling, combine all of the ingredients together in a blender, (except for the whipped topping), and blend until bananas are smooth. Pour mixture into a large bowl, and fold in 2 cups whipped topping until well blended.

4

Pour pie mixture over crust and top with remaining whipped topping.  drizzle with low sugar caramel syrup, or melted peanut butter, and chopped peanuts if desired. Chill for at least 4-6 hours, (or overnight). Let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes to soften. Cut into 12 servings and enjoy!

Ingredients

For the Crust:
2 cupsLow fat vanilla wafers 1
2 tbs Butter melted, (I like Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cupBaking stevia OR 1/2 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 2
For the Pie Filling:
2Ripe medium bananas
1/2 cupPeanut flour (or 1/4 cup peanut butter, melted)
1/2 tspSalt
1/2 cupSkim milk (or milk of choice)
1/2Cup Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 3
1 cupLow fat plain Greek yogurt 4
1 (16 oz) Container Light Cool Whip OR Tru Whip (for a natural version)

1 Or you could use 2 cups high fiber cereal or 2 cups of roasted peanuts or almonds for a clean & gluten free version of this crust!

2 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 4-6, or adjust according to taste.

3 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 8-12, or adjust according to taste.

4 Or 1 (8 oz) Package fat-free cream cheese Or 1 cup low fat cottage cheese, (don't worry, it will blend to a smooth mixture in the blender!)

Katie's Tip!

I would strongly recommended letting the pie sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes before serving to let the frozen pie soften a bit. Also, please take note that I have included many optional variations of this pie to make it as 'clean' as you would like, all of which taste amazing!

Little confused with this recipe, on step 3 you say “combine all of the ingredients together in a blender, and blend until bananas are smooth”, but them talk about folding in the whipped topping and using the remainder in step 4. I assume you mean to combine all the ingredients except the whipped topping, am I correct?

Is this recipe for 10 or 12 servings? Step 4 says 10, but the nutritional info says 12.

Anna said:

Clare said:

I don’t understand the calorie count, as it would actually differ considerably if you changed some of the ingredients like you suggest. If you used peanut butter vs. peanut flour, or regular butter vs. a light butter, or regular full-fat milk vs skim, the calorie count would be far greater than what you listed. It would be good if you could specify exactly which version of the recipe will amount to the calorie count you’ve listed here, and then give variations (at least a ballpark figure) if the other, suggested alternatives are used.

Cal count is never for optional variations… I just put these options fit those who want a healthy alternative

Oh wow, two of my fave things (bananas and peanut butter) combined. And it’s low fat, could life get any better?

I’m not a fan of bananas, would this drastically be changed if I just made it a peanut butter pie and omitted the bananas?

Can I ask if there are any alternatives to Cool Whip Lite or Tru Whip? Those things don’t exist here in Australia, only the full fat version.

:) Love that your from Australia! You can use light cream cheese or just replace it with more yogurt! :)

Did you have a problem with ice crystals?

Dashing Dish said:

yes…that is a natural bi-product of a frozen fruit, esp. banana but it wasn’t bad

This looks amazing and I’m making it right now, but, the recipe calls for 12 oz of whipped topping and then you say fold in 2 cups which is actually 16 oz and then it says use the leftover for the topping. I’m already short on whipped topping…luckily I bought extra, but, for future reference how much do you actually fold into the filling? Thanks!

Would you be able to substitute PB2 for the peanut flour and if so how much?
Thank you :)
