1 - 4 packets of Splenda or Equal if extra sweetness is desired
Dash of Ground Nutmeg and only a dash
Very CAREFULLY, stir topping, MASHED bananas and sweetener together. Again, you must do this very carefully or your topping will go so flat that it won't even fit into a training bra.

Fluffy Peach Pie, a Diet Pie Recipe
You will need the following ingredients to prepare this recipe:
1 baked pie crust and you can use either the all-purpose flour crust or a graham cracker crust
1 bag of frozen sliced peaches that serves three; look on the label for serving sizes and you'll see that each contains only 50 skinny calories; you can also opt for fresh peaches or drained canned peaches packed in their natural juice
1 medium sized container of cool whip that is reduced fat, thawed
1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon
Make certain that the pie crust is thoroughly cooled before adding the filling. The peaches should also be thoroughly thawed.
If you use fresh peaches, you may wish to cook them first for a more tender pie filling - but do allow them to cool thoroughly as they will melt the topping when the two are combined.
Begin preparing this recipe by coating the peaches with the ground cinnamon. Turn to coat the peach slices evenly.
Fold in the whipped topping very carefully. Transfer the filling to the prepared pie crust. Store in the refrigerator at least 1 hour before serving, then return any leftovers to the fridge.
This is a wonderful summer or spring time recipe and it's so easy to prepare with minimal ingredients. In less than two minutes, you can put the recipe together if the crust is baked and the peaches are thawed. It sure takes good on those warm summer days....
