Luck of the Banana

Here's some luck for your Friday the 13th - a quick, easy-to-make, low-fat Banana Cream Pie! Make it for your next summer barbecue or graduation party.

1 Box Sugar-Free, Fat-Free Vanilla or Banana Cream Pudding/Pie Mix (I used Sugar Free Acme brand, but any would probably work)
1 3/4 cup Skim Milk (or the amount specified on the pudding package)
1 large banana
1 8-inch Graham Cracker, Low-Fat Graham Cracker, or Shortbread Crust (I used Keebler Shortbread, but any will do)
1 8oz tub Light Whipped Topping

Prepare the pudding as specified for preparing pie mix on the box. After you mix the pudding and the milk, slice the bananas and add them to the mix. Pour into the pie crust and put in the refrigerator. Chill for a half-hour, or until almost firm.

Remove the pie from the refrigerator. Thaw the whipped topping and spread that on the banana mixture. Return the pie to the refrigerator and let it chill for an hour.
