For Pie Filling:


In a medium size bowl, place 3/4 cup packed Whip it Up™.


Slowly whisk in 1-1/2 cups of hot water slowly to mix. Continue to whisk vigorously for a minute more until mixture is smooth and creamy.


Add Egg Beaters™ and whisk in until well blended. Place filling in bowl in freezer for 30 minutes, or just until chilled.


Cook's Tip: To keep bananas from browning... If you are not planning to eat this pie in a day or so… soak the chilled slices in 3 Tablespoons lemon juice (bottled is fine) with 1/4 cup water for 5 minutes. Drain and toss slices with low carb sweetener equal to 1 Tablespoon sugar before placing in pie.


Layer bottom of the baked pie crust with the bananas. Spoon filling over bananas and chill in fridge for 1 hour.


Top with sweetened whipped cream before serving. Store chilled.
Pie may be frozen for up to 1 month. Makes 7 servings, 6 net carbs per serving.
