1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
1 package (4 serving size) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
1/2 teaspoon brandy extract
1 cup fat-free whipped topping

Preparation

  1. Line bottom and side of 9-inch pie pan with vanilla wafers. Slice 2 bananas and arrange evenly on top of wafers. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg; set aside.
  2. Place milk, cream cheese, pudding mix and brandy extract in food processor or blender; process until smooth. Stir in whipped topping.

Tip

To add a splash of splendor to this fabulous pie, garnish with edible pansies. These wonderful flowers bring fantastic color to this dessert. Be sure to buy the flowers from a specialty produce market or supermarket that carries gourmet produce. Never buy the flowers from a florist as they could be sprayed with pesticide and should never be eaten.
