As part of this blog, I want to share some sugar free recipes. I know diabetes is an epidemic in this country now and my husband has Type II diabetes. My Mother was a Type I diabetic but even with that she lived until she was 81. The recipe I am sharing with you is one of her favorites and any time that she came to our house for a meal this was her request for dessert. I clipped it from a newspaper years ago and it has the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup taste to it. I honestly believe you could share it with people and they would never know that it is sugar free. You could also use the regular pudding mix instead of the sugar free mix, if you prefer. If you will make it a day in advance and chill it thoroughly, I don’t think you will notice an aftertaste.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of milk (I use 2%)
1 small package of sugar free instant vanilla pudidng
1 cup sugar free non-dairy whipped topping (I have used the regular topping if I could not find the sugar free as it has a low count as far as sugar is concerned
Place the above mixture into an already prepared 9 inch graham cracker crust (I realize this will not be sugar free but the graham cracker is a good substitute for a diabetic)
1 small package sugar free chocolate pudding mix per the directions on the box (Note: The recipe calls for a cooked pudding here)
Cool the pudding and then pour over the peanut butter mixture. (Note: Be sure the chocolate pudding is absolutely cool for this step)
Cover the pie with additional non-dairy whipped topping. Decorate with shaved chocolate and chopped nuts.
This is a family favorite and I hope you enjoy it too.
