Banana Split Pie

Cliff like 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.

Serves 8

1 (6-ounce) Keebler chocolate piecrust
1 cup sliced banana (1 medium)
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) canned crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, drained
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups skim milk
1 cup sliced strawberries
3/4 cup Cool Whip Lite
2 teaspoons chocolate syrup
4 maraschino cherries, halved

Place sliced bananas in piecrust. 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 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder and 1 1/3 cups water for 2 cups skim milk.

Each serving equals:
