This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. It was okay, but I want to find my strawberry pie recipe, I love that one...


1 1/2 cup skim milk
1 package fat-free, sugar-free instant pudding (vanilla or banana flavor)
8 oz crushed pineapple in unsweetened juices
1 cup strawberries
1 banana
1 reduced-fat Keebler graham cracker crust
1 1/2 cup Kool Whip Free
Chocolate syrup

Place sliced bananas in bottom of crust, layer strawberries and then pineapple. Mix milk with pudding. Layer pudding on top of fruit. Then layer Kool Whip. Drizzle with syrup.

Based on my nutritional analysis, which didn't include the syrup (I didn't have any) and may or may not be entirely accurate...

1 serving has 196 calories, 3 grams total fat (1 gram saturated fat), trace cholesterol, 188 mg sodium, 37 grams carbs, 1 gram fiber, 3 grams protein. 2% RDA Vitamin A, 23% RDA Vitamin C, 7% RDA Calcium, 2% RDA Iron.

I would make this recipe using the Cook 'N Serve pudding instead of the instant. It tastes 100% better to me. Just make the pudding in advance and chill it in the fridge with a piece of plastic wrap placed on the pudding surface to avoid "skin" formation.

Girlie: I just found this recipe on
It is 6 points per serving so it's up to you to decide if it's "point worthy"...I personally don't like banana anything except fried bananas & fresh bananas so I'll pass.

Banana Pudding
14 ozs low-fat sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 c cold water
3 ozs fat-free vanilla pudding mix
2 c Cool Whip Free, thawed
36 pcs reduced fat vanilla wafers
3 med bananas, sliced

Combine condensed milk, water, and pudding mix in a bowl and mix until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. Spoon one cup mixture onto bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with one-third each of wafers, bananas, and remaining pudding mixture. Repeat layers two times. Chill several hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.

This recipe is really mom and I have pie every night! We've used instant pistachio pudding too (minus the bananas), and then shaved a little bit of chocolate on top of the cool's sooo good. I think for an 1/8th of a pie its 2 or 3 points.
