Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 120 minutes

Serving size: 1 slice (96g)

Calories: 290 Calories

Ingredients

  • 9-inch Deep dish pie crust, store bought

Filling

  • 12 cup evaporated milk, divided into two portions

  • 1 tsp powdered gelatin

  • 8 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature

  • 12 cup chunky, natural peanut butter, salted

  • 14 cup of zero-calorie Truvia Original Calorie-Free Sweetener Spoonable Jar***

  • 14 tsp salt

  • 2 medium-size ripe bananas (about 2 cups)

  • 14 cup unsweetened toasted coconut, reserve 18 cup for garnish

Directions

  • 1.

    Preheat your oven to 350° F.

  • 2.

    Prick the bottom of the pie shell a dozen times with a fork. Bake in the oven, on the center rack, for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Allow the crust to cool completely before filling, about 30 minutes. The crust can also be baked the day before and stored at room temperature until ready to fill. If you could not find pre-toasted coconut, you can also place your coconut into the oven, and bake for 5 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • 3.

    Place 14 cup of the evaporated milk into a small pot. Whisk in the gelatin and allow to sit for 3 minutes to soften. Place the pot on the stove over medium heat and cook, while whisking, until hot and the gelatin has melted. Do not bring the mixture to a boil. Transfer the hot milk to a mixing bowl, add in the other 14 cup of evaporated milk. Place this into the freezer for 10 minutes to chill before beating.

  • 4.

    In the meantime, combine the cream cheese and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute to incorporate. Add in the Truvia Original Sweetener, and salt. Beat for an additional minute. Set aside. After 10 minutes, remove the evaporated milk from the freezer. The edges of the milk should be starting to set. If they are not set and the milk is not cold, place back in the freezer for an additional 5 minutes. Beat the chilled milk for 4-5 minutes with an electric mixer on high speed. It should now resemble whipped cream.

  • 5.

    Spoon the peanut mixture into the evaporated milk and mix on medium speed for 1 minute to incorporate. Add half of the toasted coconut, 18 cup, into the pie filling, and mix until combined.

  • 6.

    Spoon a third of the mixture into the baked pie crust, and smooth out, to cover the bottom of the crust. Peel and slice the bananas into 14-inch thick slices. Top the peanut mixture with all of the bananas. Cover the bananas with the rest of the peanut cream. To garnish, top with the remaining toasted coconut and peanuts.

  • 7.

    Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour, or up to overnight, before serving.

  • 8.

    Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
