Maestro:

Welcome back to Healthy Exchanges. It felt good for me to get back on JoAnna's recipes and for me, I was able to get down to a healthy weight almost exclusively HE recipes. I haven't felt and eaten better since.

I just hope my not too sweet isn't your too sweet.

Like you, it helps me to know how a recipe turned out for someone else. Do let us know how it turns out when you make it.

Thanks, Itsrandella. Your reply definitely helps - enough where I'll just HAVE to try this pie now!

It's been a long while since I've regularly made JoAnna food, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the habit. Several years ago, I made one of her pies that called for a box of SF instant pudding mixed with a box of SF jello. OMG, it was so sickening sweet, I had to pitch the whole thing. I hated to try this one without an opinion first!

Thanks so much for the recipe and your input!!

I have made it. My notes in the cookbook are "5 stars, perfect as is" and "John (my husband) loved it."

I don't exactly recall the pie - I make a new dessert every other day. :-) And I don't care for anything real sweet and I would have noted that if it was to me.

I hope this helps!

I'm just curious if you've tried this pie. It sounds so good, but I wonder if it's overly sweet with the maple syrup mixed with the pudding.

I'd love to hear everyone's opinions.

Becky's Southern Banana-Butterschotch Cream Pie
Healthy Exchanges Cookbook p.202

Freezer Friendly

This pie was born when my daughter, Becky, came home to visit one time. You know how the "Mommy thing" works. When the kids visit, we have to cook their most favorite foods-the ones they've loved since they were old enough to eat baby food, the ones we always make to celebrate special occasions. Becky is happy to share her namesake dessert and hopes you enjoy it as much as she does. Serves 8

2 cup sliced banana, (2 medium)
1 (6-ounce) Keebler graham-cracker piecrust
1 (4-serving) package Jell-O sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix
2/3 cup Carnation nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup water
1/4 cup Cary's reduced-calorie maple syrup
3/4 cup Cool Whip Lite -divided
2 tablespoons (12 ounce) chopped pecans

Place sliced bananas in piecrust. In a medium bowl, combine dry pudding mix and dry milk powder. In 2-cup glass measuring cup, combine water and maple syrup. Add liquid mixture to dry pudding mixture. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/4 cup Cool Whip Lite. Spread mixture evenly over bananas. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Spread remaining 1/2 cup Cool Whip Lite evenly over filling. Sprinkle pecans evenly over top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Each serving equals:
HE: 1/2 Br, 1/2 Fr, 1/4 SM, 1/4 Fa, 1 Sl
201 calories, 7 gm Fa, 3 gm Pr, 31 gm Ca, 356 mg So, 2 Fi
DIABETIC: 1 St, 1 Fr, 1 Fa
