Treat yourself to a light version of peanut butter pie. It tastes like eating a peanut butter and chocolate candy bar, but lightened ingredients like reduced-fat peanut butter, fat-free condensed milk, and light cream cheese keep fat and calories in check without sacrificing any flavor.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 (8-ounce) block light cream cheese, softened
1 cup natural-style, reduced-fat creamy peanut butter (such as Smucker's)
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 12-ounce tub frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
2 9-inch ready-made reduced-fat graham cracker shells
4 teaspoons fat-free chocolate sundae syrup
How to Make It
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the condensed milk, and beat until combined. Stir in the whipped topping. Divide the mixture evenly between shells; chill 8 hours or until set (pies will have a soft, fluffy texture). Cut into wedges, and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Note: We loved this pie frozen--its texture is more like that of an ice-cream pie.
Easy to make if your cool whip is thawed & cream cheese very softened, skip the sugar; couldn't find low fat graham cracker crust. Not sure the chocolate is worth buying - other than for decoration. Best frozen, very satisfying.
This was amazing! The only problem was the portion size - it's really hard to stop with one piece! I couldn't find low-fat sweetened condensed milk, so I used low-fat evaporated milk and only used 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and that was plenty sweet enough. I also used an 8 oz package of frozen whipped topping instead of 12 oz, and that seemed to be just fine.
This is to die for! Granted, couldn't find fat free condensed milk or low fat graham cracker crust - or low fat peanut butter - LOL! The only one I could find was the Free Cool Whip and cream cheese, but I bet it would still be great! Froze the 2nd one, a real keeper!
This was a HUGH hit with my family!! Easy and delicious!! Like other reviewers left out powdered sugar. Do NOT need it!! Plenty sweet with just the condensed milk. Also used Oreo crust. Froze, drizzled with chocolate & caramel syrup and sprinkled with few chopped pecans. It is rich so don't need big piece although my son ate two large pieces! Will definitely be making again!!
