Sugar Free Banana Pudding Pie

banana pudding pieWell today is Pi Day and it is also one of our busy days of the weeks where we all eat dinner at different times.  So I decided I wanted to make a Pie for Pi Day that we could all enjoy together later on this evening.  I began searching options that would be low carb friendly and didn’t find exactly what I wanted.  I did however, get an idea of a pie to create on my own.  So here is my Sugar Free Banana Pudding Pie!

Sugar Free Banana Pudding Pie

Ingredients

  • 22 vanilla wafers (regular size)
  • 2 med bananas
  • 1 package instant Sugar Free Banana Cream Pudding
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Swerve Granular Sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line the bottom of your pie shell with the vanilla wafers.  You will be able to see the bottom of the shell – but it will work just fine.
  3. Slice the 2 bananas and layer them on top of the vanilla wafers.
  4. Mix your instant Sugar Free Banana Cream Pudding and the 2 cups of cold milk.  Whisk together for about 2 minutes until it thickens.  (You could use cook and serve if you can find sugar free.  I could only find the sugar free in the instant mix)
  5. Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas and wafers, coating evenly.
  6. Separate 3 egg whites into a bowl.  Mix on high speed to fluff.
  7. While mixing add in cream of tarter and Swerve.
  8. Continue mixing until it is thick and peaks form.
  9.  Spread the meringue over top of the pudding mixture.
  10. Place in the oven for 5 – 7 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Allow the pie to cool and then chill for 2 hours to set.

It is Thanksgiving morning and I just put our Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie in the oven.  I realized I had not ever blogged this item, so here you go.  Thanksgiving is not always a lower carb day – so in the areas that you can cut some carbs we go for it.  This is a yummy pumpkin pie – that no one would realize is sugar free if you didn’t tell them!  Enjoy…

Low Carb French Silk Pie

Who doesn’t love chocolate and I was excited to find this low carb version of chocolate silk pie that I adjusted. I did go ahead and use a graham cracker crust.  It is just so much simpler and still a nice low version of a yummy pie. We have tried several different recipes and some will not make this blog.  This one however, is one that I will make again.  Hope you give it a try too.
