Healthy Recipe: Frozen Peanut Butter-And-Chocolate Pie

I enjoy finding new healthy desserts to have!  I must have some sort of dessert or I will fail miserably at any healthy eating attempts!

I found this recipe in my WW cookbook -  Comfort Classics.  I didn't have a reduced fat crust, so I made my own crust with some chocolate graham crackers and melted butter - not a reduced fat crust and I made it too thick!  So my version definitely had extra points, but it was a nice treat!

 

Frozen Peanut Butter-And-Chocolate Pie

1 1/2 cups fat-free milk ( I used whole milk)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon reduced-fat creamy peanut butter (I used all-natural PB)
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup frozen thawed fat-free whipped topping (I used light)
1 (6 oz) prepared reduced-fat graham-cracker crust (I crushed chocolate grahams and mixed w/ melted butter)
1 tablespoon chopped dry roasted peanuts (I skipped this)
1/2 oz semisweet chocolate, coarsely grated

1.  Combine the milk and sugar in medium saucepan and set over med-high heat.  Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes; remove from the heat.  Whisk in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.  Pour into a medium bowl and refrigerate until completely cooled, about 1 hour.

2.  Gently stir the whipped topping into the chilled milk mixture, spoon into the crust.  Sprinkle with the peanuts and grated chocolate.  Loosely cover the pie with wax paper, then with heavy-duty foil.  Freeze until completely frozen, at least 4 hours or up to 2 days.  Let the pie soften at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.

Hope you get a chance to try this recipe - don't be afraid to make changes to recipes and make them your own or use up what you already have in your home!

I'm linking this up to my other blog (Stop and Smell the Chocolates) for Chocolate/Dessert Friday, but you should only stop by if you can keep your chocolate cravings under control.  :)

Have a healthy day!

  1. Is it okay to have pie for breakfast? That looks yum!!

    Weighed this morning. Not pretty. Very discouraging, actually....I *told* myself I tracked my points well this week, but I knew better...and the scale did,too. But here's to starting a new week, a fresh start :)

  3. Sorry Melinda - I edited that to clarify. The WW version is 4 pts per serving. My version was probably close to 6 pts per serving.
