With a family history of diabetes, we've been making adjustments to some of our favorite recipes. My daddy, who is a diabetic really likes this pie and it doesn't run his blood sugar levels up. It is quick and easy also which gives it another reason for a "thumbs up" at my house.
- 1 (9 inch) reduced fat graham cracker crust
- 1 (4 ounce) package sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2 cups low-fat milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained
- 2 cups Cool Whip Lite
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
- Mix pudding with milk and vanilla.
- Beat until thick then pour into crust.
- Place the sliced bananas over pudding. Squeeze pineapple to remove all juice, then sprinkle it on top of bananas.
- Cover with Cool Whip.
- Sprinkle pecans on top.
- Chill for 2 hours before serving.
This is AWESOME! I made this for my hubby's b-day & we both loved it! Thanks to some fantastic help from Zaar folks, I used the ONE oz pudding mix box (calls for 2 cups of milk). Worked great. Used skim milk, fat free cool whip & no pineapple or pecans. Used crumbled low fat graham crackers for the topping instead & a handful of choc chips. I chilled for 2 days & the flavor was fantastic & decadent. Will hopefully get a chance to make it again!! Thank u for sharing
Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I made this for our church's Valentine dinner, since there are so many dibetics in our congretion, including me. Everyone loved it! Even those who aren't dibetic were asking for the recipe.
I couldn't find a 4 oz package of pudding, so I assumed the recipe meant for the larger one and used that. I also threw some Kashi Honey Flax cereal in a processor with 2 tbsp butter and pressed that into the bottom of the pie plate for my crust. Used half the stated pineapples. Next time I will let my Cool Whip thaw better or chill the pie for awhile before adding it. I also scattered about 1/8 c of that same cereal on top instead of nuts (the cereal has almonds in it but crunchier and less fat, etc.)
