Low Fat Banana Cream Pie

"This is a fantastic and easy lower fat version modified from a recipe from Healthy Appetite (the show is hosted by dietitian Ellie Krieger). It can be made lactose free simply by using lactose free milk. Including the graham crackers, one serving contains 3.4 grams of fat, with only 0.6 grams of that saturated. Does not include set up time in the refrigerator."

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9-inch pie tin with Pam.
  • In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until finely ground. Add tub margarine and 1 tablespoon of water, and process until becomes crumbly and clumps form.
  • Press crumb mixture into bottom and partially up sides of pie tin. Bake 10 minutes. Let cool.
  • To make the filling, place 3 tablespoons of cold water in a small ramekin. Slowly sprinkle gelatin evenly over water, being careful not to let it clump. Let bloom (it is done when it soaks up all the water - this will happen pretty quickly).
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, salt and flour.
  • In a bowl, beat the egg yolk and milk together.
  • Add the egg mixture to the pan of dry ingredients and whisk to dissolve.
  • Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. It should come to a boil and thicken.
  • Turn off heat and stir in gelatin until dissolves. Take off heat and add the vanilla and rums. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  • Arrange a third of the bananas (one banana) on the bottom of the graham cracker crust. Pour half the pudding over it. Continue to layer another third of the bananas, followed by the other half of the pudding. Top with remaining third of bananas.
  • Store in the refrigerator until pudding has set, approximately 3 hours.

    This is a great pie! I love custards and this one is awesome. The rum is the best part of course :)

    I made the filling only and used Splenda for the sugar and egg white in place of the yolk (only because I'm on strict cholesterol watch). I think I used a tad too much gelatin because mine set a little firmer than what I see in the other pix. It sure didn't hurt the taste any! and the next time I make this I'll try a bit less of the gelatin. It makes a wonderful summery pudding dessert that is a real treat. Very simple to make too!

    Awesome, I would have picture excpept DH and his friend got into it before it was even in the fridge long enough. Obviously they didn't care since 1/2 or it was gone by the time I caught them. (they were nice enough to save me some) Leanne
