Banana Split Pie
 Cooking Healthy with a Man in Mind

"A Healthy Exchanges Cookbook."

JoAnna M. Lund with Barbara Albert

Servings: 8

"Cliff likes to call this his 'heaven on earth' pie because this is what he imagines the best taste there is might be like! That's quite a compliment from my 'truck-drivin' man,' who honed his taste buds in truck stops and restaurants coast-to-coast during his years as a long-distance trucker. Now he's traded his eighteen-wheeler for computers and printing presses, but he's never lost his taste for my banana split recipes," says JoAnna Lund.


1 (6-ounce) Keebler chocolate pie crust
1 cup sliced banana (1 medium)
1 cup (8-ounce can crushed pineapple in fruit juice, drained)
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups skim milk
1 cup sliced strawberries
cup Cool Whip Lite
2  teaspoons chocolate syrup
4  maraschino cherries, halved

Cooking Method

Place sliced bananas in pie crust.  Sprinkle drained crushed pineapple over sliced bananas.  In a medium bowl, combine dry pudding mix and skim milk.  Mix well using a wire whisk. Pour pudding mixture over fruit.  Refrigerate 1 hour.  Sprinkle sliced strawberries over set pudding.  Spread Cool Whip Lite evenly over strawberries.  Drizzle chocolate syrup over Cool Whip Lite.  Garnish top evenly with maraschino cherry halves.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour.  Cut into 8 pieces.

Hint: For a firmer pie, substitute ⅔ cup nonfat dry milk powder and 1⅓  cups water for 2 cups skim milk
