Happy National Banana Cream Pie Day! I whipped up this 4 ingredient version of a healthier banana cream pie. It’s so simple and if you love bananas and yogurt then you’ll love this. It’s perfect for breakfast, snack, dessert, or whenever the moods strikes!

What Is Yogurt?

Yogurt is a dairy product made by fermenting milk with a yogurt culture. Some yogurts contain active, living bacteria known as probiotics, which can help keep the intestines healthy.

How is Yogurt Made?

First, milk is heated then cooled to the desired fermentation temperature, typical between 106-114°F. Then, bacterial cultures are added and the mixture is then left to ferment until the bacteria grows, produces lactic acid, and gels the milk proteins to produce yogurt.

Is Yogurt Healthy?

Yogurt is high in calcium and vitamins B6 and B12. It also contains protein, riboflavin, potassium, and magnesium. The amounts differ depending on the type. One cup of yogurt provides 49% of your daily calcium needs.

How To Make This Recipe

Healthier banana cream pie process

Step 1:

Add half of a 5.3-ounce container of yogurt into small glass jar. I recommend the banana flavor, but if your store doesn’t carry it, the Toasted Coconut Vanilla flavor tastes great too.

Step 2:

Layer the yogurt with half of the sliced bananas.

Step 3:

Add the rest of the yogurt. Then, top with the remainder of sliced bananas, lite whipped topping and crushed butter cookie. 

I used Pepperidge Farm Chessman butter cookies. They taste great and give the “pie” the crunch of a crust.

There is no baking required in this pie and it comes together in minutes!
