Easy, Lite Banana Cream Pie (Parfait)
I was at the grocer picking up food for the week when I ran across some banana cream pie yogurt so I decided to try it. It wasn't bad but I found myself really just wanting actual pie. While pie is super delicious, it's not really on my diet (Weight Watchers) and it's not very quick. So I started poking around my kitchen and put this together. The whole thing is only 3-4 Weight Watchers Points Plus (depending on what cereal you use). Enjoy!
1 - Banana, Sliced
1 - 6 oz container of Banana Cream Pie Yogurt (Fat Free)
1/2 Cup - Dry Cereal
4 Tablespoons - Fat Free Reddi Wip
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cost for all ingredients: $9.00
Cost Per Serving: $2.25
1.) We're going to start by putting the cereal in a bowl. I used Fiber One's 80 Calorie Honey Squares that we got on special at Costco (www.fiberone.com/products/cereal/80-calories-cereal). I've also used Golden Grahams but they're a little more expensive and are another Weight Watchers Points Plus point per serving.
Note: I've thought about trying to make an actual crust by crushing the cereal and adding some butter (or butter spray?) but haven't experimented yet.
2.) Next We're going to add about half of the sliced banana. When you slice it up, make sure you make sure the pieces are about 1/4 of an inch thick. We want them pretty small so that we have enough for two layers, one now and one later. Spread the pieces evenly over the cereal.
3.) Spoon the yogurt on top of the banana layer. I used Banana Cream Pie, fat free yogurt since it was my inspiration but you could probably use vanilla too
4.) Add the remaining banana slices in another layer on top of the yogurt. If you can remember where the spaces were between the previous pieces, try to put them there. We want to make sure we get banana in every bite!
5.) Finally, lets add the Reddi Wip. I love this stuff... 5 calories and zero WW Points+ per serving (2 tablespoons) and still zero points for 2 servings so of course we're using 2 servings right? Right.
Voila! Our finished product. I hope it didn't take you to much longer than 5 minutes to make as it is supposed to be a "quick and easy" breakfast or dessert. I've not tried refrigerating this and serving it later, if you do please let me know! The banana layer should protect the cereal from getting soggy. and you can add the Reddi Wip at the last moment.
