Strawberry Banana Cream Pie

For our Super Bowl Sunday snacking enjoyment, we had barbecued chicken, meatballs, shrimp, potato salad, fruit, chips & dip, and other assorted snacks.

While planning the menu, I decided I should probably have something a little lighter for dessert.

This Strawberry Banana Cream Pie was exactly what I needed. It was light and delicious…and made me feel just a little bit less guilty about eating all the other snacks. 🙂

~Enjoy~

Strawberry Banana Cream Pie

Crust

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

Pudding layer

1 (0.9 ounce) box Banana Cream Jell-O Sugar-Free Fat-Free Instant Pudding and Pie Filling mix
2 cups fat-free milk

Whipped Topping layer

1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip Free – Fat Free Whipped Topping

Strawberries

Approximately 10 fresh, or frozen, strawberries

Putting it all together

Crust – Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in medium-sized bowl. Stir in melted butter. Blend well.

Pack mixture firmly into 9-inch pie pan. Press firmly to bottom and sides, bringing crumbs evenly up to the rim.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 20 minutes. Place in refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.

Pudding layer – In a small bowl, beat pudding mix into milk with wire whisk for 2 minutes. Pour into chilled graham cracker crust.

Chill for at least 30 minutes.

Whipped Topping Layer – Spread thawed whipped topping over pudding layer. Chill for 30 minutes.

Slice strawberries and place on top of chilled whipped topping layer.
