Diabetic Friendly Recipe
Banana Cream Pie. A pie crust holds a layer of bananas with a delicious filling laid on top of them maded with banana pudding and sweetener. Top it all off with whipping cream for a melt in your mouth dessert.
1 pie crust, 9-inch, brushed with egg whites, baked and cooled
2 medium-sized bananas
2-3/4 cups 1 percent milk
1 large package (6 serving size) banana sugar-free instant pudding
24 packets sweetener or 1 cup measurable sweetener
Topping ingredients:1/4 cup whipping cream
1 packet sweetener
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Banana layer: Cut bananas into thick slices, about 1/4 inch each. Evenly cover the bottom and the lower edges of the pie crust with banana slices.
Pudding layer: Beat together milk and pudding mix for one to two minutes. Gently pour pudding over the banana layer, and refrigerate. Allow one hour to gel.
Topping layer: A little whipping cream makes this pie rich and creamy. Those watching calories or fat will find the pie quite delicious without topping.
**For best results, wait until just before serving the pie to prepare the topping. Beat the whipping cream until peaks form and then droop. Add sweetner and vanilla. Beat until stiff.
Top each slice of pie with a small dollop, or spread a thin layer over the entire pie. Also, use a quality sweetener for baking such as Steviva.
