When you're ready to indulge in a well-deserved dessert our Guilt-Free Banana Pudding Pie will really hit the spot. Because there's less sugar than there is in the traditional version of this normally super-sweet dessert, you're able to enjoy it just like everyone else.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 an 11-ounce box reduced-fat vanilla wafers
  • 3 large ripe bananas, sliced
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 7 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, separated

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray.
     
  2. In the pie plate, layer half the vanilla wafers followed by half the banana slices. Repeat layers one more time; set aside.
     
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the milk, 5 tablespoons of sugar, the flour, vanilla extract, salt, and egg yolks. Cook over low heat about 10 minutes, or until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour  pudding mixture over top of bananas.
     
  4. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining sugar slowly to the egg whites and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over the top of the pudding mixture.
     
  5. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until golden. Let cool, then chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Would it be possible to use Splenda in this recipe?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen says that you can definitely use Splenda in the pudding, however since we haven't tested using it in the meringue we cannot guarantee the outcome. Enjoy!

not tried it yet

Diabetics (myself included) have always had to wrestle with sugary treats. I say, if you want to try it, take a couple of extra units and give it a whirl every now and then. If not, eat it anyway. When you wake up out of that sugar coma it will be a whole new day! :-)

I do not know where people who do the nutritional content of these recipes get their information. This recipe is NOT good for diabetics because it has 15 grams of sugar for EACH piece of the 1/16 of the pie. That is a mere sliver of the pie and certainly a lot smaller of a piece than one would normally cut this pie into and still be off on the calories and sugar grams. The 1/2 pkg of reduced fat vanilla wafers has 58 sugar grams, the 3 large ripe bananas have 60 grams sugar, the 2 cups whole milk has 24 grams sugar, the 1/3 c plus 2 T sugar has 25 grams sugar and that all adds up to 232 grams sugar!!! Divide by 16 and it is 14.5, rounded up it is 15 grams sugar each 1/16 slice. Oh, I know -- just shoot up a little more insulin and everything will be fine, right? NOT HARDLY!!!!

We're sorry to hear that you find these recipes unsatisfactory. We believe that if you maintain a healthy, balanced diet, there is room for a small indulgence every now and then. The ADA recommends 45-60g of sugar/carbs per meal, so if you wanted to include a sweet like this in your meal, it is perfectly acceptable, especially if cut back on other carb-containing foods in the same meal. For further information and details on how to healthfully incorporate carbs and sugar into your meal, please see: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what-can-i-eat/sweeteners-and-desserts.html
