Banana "Cream" Pie
Why I Love This Recipe
This is another Weight Watchers Recipe. I love dessert, and this is a good one for dieters and non-dieters, alike, because it doesn't taste "diet". In this recipe, cream is replaced with yogurt! It's easy to make, too. Enjoy!
Ingredients You'll Need
12 graham crackers, made into crumbs
4 teaspoons margarine
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grated lime zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a 9" pie plate with nonstick cooking spray
In bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and margarine with a fork. Press into the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan. Bake until firm, about 3-5 minutes. Cool. (Or you could just buy the ready-made crust if you don't want to make it.)
In another bowl, toss the bananas with the lime juice. Reserve one cup. Arrange remaining bananas over the crust.
In a small saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/2 a cup cold water. Let stand two minutes. Add the sugar. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture boils and the gelatin and sugar dissolve, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the yogurt and vanilla. Pour into pie plate.
Arange the reserved bananas over the pie, sprinkle with lime zest. Refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap about 2-3 hours, until chilled.
Makes 8 servings. For anyone one WW, this is about 4 points a serving.
