Make a Banana Split Pie (lower carb, of course!)
Topic: Entertaining/Party

Happy Birthday to my husband! 

Of course, a birthday celebration is in order, and that would normally include a Birthday Cake! But we are always trying to lower those carbs and --by the way--he already had an Atomic Cake from staff at work!

So my mission is to create a celibratory, but not too heavy or carb-y--Happy Birthday dessert.  It's hot, my husband and nephew and a good friend have been making hay for hours and still have more work to go--likely birthday dinner will be late or even deferred until tomorrow. But you have to have something to put a candle on!

So, here's a Banana Split Pie that should fit the bill.

 Banana Split Pie

Make and bake a 9 inch pie crust and cool.

Next, mix  4 oz softened cream cheese with 1 Tbsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla. Add to that, 1/2 of an 8 oz. container of  thawed Cool Whip.

Spread this mixture on the bottom of the baked and cooled pie crust.

Thinly slice 1 ripe banana and layer this on top of the Cool Whip mixture.

Next, whisk together 1& 3/4 cups milk and 1 box of Sugar free, instant Chocolate pudding.  Whisk for about 2 minutes, then spread on top of the banana layer.

Finally, top with the remaining 1/2 carton of Cool Whip. If you want a little fancy, then put this into an icing bag and pump into a pattern on top of the chocolate layer. Or you can just spread on top and even sprinkle some slivered almonds on top if you'd like.
