Tropical Pie Recipe

“I created this fruity, spur-of-the-moment recipe when we needed a light dessert to serve company on a very hot day—and I didn’t want to heat up the kitchen. Everything was in the fridge or pantry, and it took no time to prepare!” Audrey Arno, Tuttle, Oklahoma.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple
  • 4 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 medium firm bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping, divided
  • 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 4 maraschino cherries, halved
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted


  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar substitute and 1 tablespoon reserved juice until smooth. Add bananas to remaining reserved juice. Fold 1/4 cup whipped topping into cream cheese mixture.
  • 2. Drain bananas; arrange half of the slices in the crust. Carefully spread with cream cheese mixture. Layer with pineapple and remaining bananas and whipped topping. Garnish with cherries and walnuts. Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving. Yield: 8 servings.

"I have made this pie three times now and Everyone loved it. The last time I used a chocolate crust and added a layer of strawberries with the bananas. It tasted like a banana split. Very refreshing during the hot weather."
