Posted: Updated:

Chay's Oreo Banana Split Pie

Serves:  12 servings    

Ingredients

3 cups of crushed Oreos

3 cups light vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups (fat-free) whipped topping, thawed from frozen
1 Cup chocolate pudding
2 bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 tablespoon crushed dry-roasted peanuts
12 maraschino cherries

Your favorite chocolate bar for shavings (prefer dark)


Set out all of your ingredients so your ice cream doesn't melt too much once you start assembling.

Crush a bag of oreo (or generic) brand cookies to form the crusts for the pies.  Spread 2 tablespoons of crumbs in each cupcake tin or form in a 9" pie shell.

 

Once slightly softened, scoop ice cream into a large pie pan and spread into an even layer along the bottom. Evenly place strawberry slices flat over the ice cream, pressing down lightly so they adhere.

Put whipped topping in a bowl. Add pudding and mix thoroughly. Spread pudding/topping mixture into a smooth layer over the strawberries. Evenly place banana slices flat over this layer, and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Sprinkle with nuts and evenly place the cherries on top of the pie. Freeze for about 4 hours (or overnight), until completely firm.

Allow the pie to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into 8 slices and enjoy!

 

OPTION:  Shave chocolate bar to decorate before serving.
