Frozen Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

Here's the Dish

My sisters and I are about 3 years apart in age, and we have a lot in common…although there is one thing that ‘bonds’ us in a downright silly way…(to the point that we act like 5th graders when it’s around!) That one thing is Peanut Butter!!! I’m not really sure what started this ‘peanut butter’ phenomenon between the three of us, but my bet is that it had something to do with the rich chocolate peanut butter cake my mom used to make for our birthday when we were growing up!

Well…The years of eating a huge slice of cake (with endless amounts of saturated fat) eventually must come to an end… (lets consider the health of our hearts here people…not just calories!) However, the desire to have a traditional birthday celebration (and the cake that comes with it) never dies, no matter how old your turning! Which is why I created this simple, yet oh so satisfying Reese’s style frozen pie!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 4-6 hours or overnight.

1

Spray a 8×8 springform pie pan with non-stick cooking spray. Remove Oreo crust from pan and re-form it in the bottom of your spring form pan, pressing it down with your hands. (You could skip this step and leave it in the original pie pan, but I enjoy the look of the taller pie).

2

Mix all ingredients together until smooth (I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, but you could do this by hand) and fold in Cool Whip until well blended.

3

Pour mixture over pie crust and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Chill for at least 4-6 hours, (or overnight). Let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes (to soften) and add topping of choice before serving.

Ingredients

1(8 oz) Package fat-free cream cheese
1/2 cupCreamy OR crunchy peanut butter 1
1/2 cup Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 2
1/4 cupskim milk (or milk of choice)
1(8oz) Container Fat Free Cool Whip
1Pre-made Oreo pie crust OR reduced fat graham cracker pie crust
3 tbsLight Hershey’s Syrup
OptionalToppings: Reese’s Ice Cream toppers (a few Tbs), Reese’s miniature candies (a few crushed up), crushed peanuts, 100 calorie Nutter Butter cookies (crushed up), Reddi Whip

1 You may replace the peanut butter with 1/2 cup peanut flour mixed with 1/4 cup skim milk (or milk of choice), which will shave 500 calories off this recipe! The only downfall is you have to buy it online. Peanut flour is basically a de-fatted version of peanut butter and is in powder form, so once you add water, it is just like peanut butter! I use it in my protein shakes, desserts, etc. and I think it is worth purchasing.

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

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.

@girgetsstrong Yes! Almost all of my recipes use stevia..but I do give the option to use splenda/honey/agave nectar, ect! I also have a link comparing the ‘sweeteners’ out there! :) Thanks for the comment! Let me know if you make it…and what you thought if you do!

hi i just learned about fitnutz, …and ordered their sugar free version:). then i went online and found another type, it has 1 gram of fat more per serving but you get five times as much for the price. plus you can get plain peanut buter powder, no sugar! its at “beprepared.com” or something like that, i dont know if you are interested but i was pretty happy with it, trying to cut out sugar is tough:) but im doin’ it.ttyl

Katie, I just found your blog this week, and this is the first recipe I found. I made it last night for a little get together this evening, and I tried a little of the filling–SO GOOD! I drizzled and swirreled some extra chocolate sauce on top and it looks amazing!

Katie,
I found your site through your sister’s Sarah site via facebook. When I saw this I was pretty excited because I make a reese’s peanut butter pie for my boys here that we love. I made this last night and the funny thing was is my non sweet eater bf said this is good for those who like sugar. I couldn’t believe the difference just cutting the full fledge fat ingredients in half. And we had it before it set up frozen and it tasted like the one I always make. Thanks for the great recipe. I like checking to see what new things you have made as well. Some great ideas.

Katie,

So I have been following you for quite a while now. I have made so many of your recipes and I must say that this is one of my absolute favorites! I doubled the recipe to make two pies at once. I am serving it for my Mom’s birthday. You are soo stinkin cute and I am so thankful to have found your site! Thank you so much!

P.S. Don’t worry, I also made your fettucine alfredo recipe tonight! The husband loved it!

this pie is perfect.. i am a peanut butter FANATIC, so when i saw this recipe, i used it instead of a less healthy recipe i’ve made before. when i’m in the mood for something like this, it’s a toss up between the peanut butter or the cookies and cream as my husband would usually prefer cookies and cream.. but since i’m usually making it–i usually win with peanut butter ;)! THANKS AGAIN!

Do you measure out 1/2 cup of the fitnutz butter or do you use less/more?

Hi Katie! This sounds sooooo good! How much peanut flour should I use to sub for the regular PB? Still a 1/2 cup?

Thanks!

The picture of the pie looks wonderful and I love the fact that it is healthier. But the picture looks like there are 2 layers in the filling. Was that just the lighting?

This looks so amazing!

In New Zealand, we don’t have cool whip. What is it like? I want to find a replacement but I can’t replace it because I don’t know what it is :)

Thank you! :)

Anna @ The Guiltless Life said:

Commenting on this WAY too late, but quick question as I want to make this! When you say “chill the pie” do you put it in the fridge or freezer? I ask because you then say to let it sit for about 15 minutes but as it’s just been in the fridge I wouldn’t imagine it needs to sit that long, unless it had been frozen??

Thanks girl!

Hi! So I just made this, and it looks delicious! I’m freezing it right now, hope that’s right. However I’m a little confused because your tip says to let the ice cream thaw for 15-30 min before eating, but ice cream isn’t on the ingredients list. Let me know if I missed something!

Hi Katie! I just found this recipe of your on Pinterest and I must say, I am completely excited to recreate it for my boyfriend on his birthday. We both LOVE peanut butter + chocolate and I could not be more excited to surprise him with this! I’ve made your skinny pb chocolate swirl brownies before and they are one of my mod popular recipes! I love visiting dashing dish, Katie! :)

Hi! My son has a peanut allergy. Would I be able to make this with SunButter (sunflower seed “peanut butter”) or PB2? SunButter is a little more liquidy than reg PB. Thanks!!!!

Made this for dessert the other night when we had my parents over and everyone LOVED it. Even my hubby ate a nice big chunk and he doesn’t normally like sweets – healthy or not :) I’m so so thankful to have found your blog and this recipe. Chocolate/peanut butter is my favorite dessert combo (and biggest weakness) and this satisfies even the most wicked craving.

I added a tbsp of cocoa powder to the filling. AMAZING! I also made my own crust with chocolate graham crackers instead of using the oreo pie crust, I have an issue with oreos lol.

This was super easy and the filling has just the right amount of sweetness to it that it does not taste like it is low fat at all! Just saved a ton of calories from my original peanut butter pie I used to make!

This is an INCREDIBLE dessert! I have made it twice this week! The first time I accidentally got carried away and mixed everything together instead of folding the cool whip in, so it was pretty flat. Also, I mistakingly refrigerated it. However, it was still incredible. My 11 yr old said it tasted just like Cheesecake Factory. I said but way better because it doesn’t have a thousand calories! We made it again but mixed it according to the directions the second time and it was fantastic. I made my own pie crust by combining chocolate teddy grahams and almond milk in a food processor. You are very talented pretty lady!!! Thank you for creating such awesome recipes.

MERRY CHRISTMAS KATIE!!! I finally have the ingredients to make this and your whoopie pies. I will post on instagram when they are done. Question, your recipe calls for fat free cool whip, which I have. But I also JUST discovered TRUWHIP (from your site) and it tastes EVEN better to me! What’s the difference? Would it work if I use tru whip or should I just stick to the cool whip? THANKS SO MUCH. xo
