Chocolate-Banana Frozen Pie with Peanut Butter Crust

recipe

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups mashed ripe banana (about 4 bananas)
2 cups chocolate low-fat frozen yogurt, softened

Preparation

Combine cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of honey, and peanut butter, stirring well. Press mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

Place the softened chocolate low-fat frozen yogurt in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold banana mixture into yogurt. Spoon mixture into crust. Cover and freeze 4 hours or until firm. Drizzle with chocolate syrup just before serving.
