What’s not to love about Banana Cream Pie? It’s rich and creamy made with a delicious custard filling and layers of sliced bananas. Top if off with a mound of whipped cream for one seriously good slice of pie.
These Banana Cream Pie Yogurt Parfaits is everything you love about Banana Cream Pie made into an easy,no-bake parfaits with layers of crushed Nilla wafers and sliced bananas. The “custard”filling is thick and creamy using just Greek yogurt, milk and a package of sugar-free Banana Cream pudding mix. If you can’t find sugar-free Banana Cream pudding mix you can substitute for sugar-free vanilla pudding mix. You can easily whip these up in no time and set them in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. This filling makes a yummy dip too. Serve with Nilla wafers, graham crackers or even fruit. This is one effortless dessert that is full of flavor and you can enjoy with less guilt too.
Greek yogurt is fantastic not only in these parfaits but in so many recipes. Greek yogurt has twice the amount of protein as most regular yogurts due to the straining process. Six ounces of Greek yogurt has about 14-17 grams of protein opposed to regular yogurt which only has about 7-8 grams.
My kids love Greek yogurt. They’ll eat a bowl of each everyday topped with fresh berries and granola. I love to use it smoothies too. It’s also is a great substitute in place of mayonnaise. Try it in chicken salad like my Maple-Dijon Chicken Salad which is made with Greek yogurt.
Celebrate and support America’s diary farming families who provide us with healthy, wholesome dairy foods during June Dairy Month.
I am so proud to live in New York which is ranked 4th in dairy farming with more than 5,000 dairy farms across the state. There are many dairy farmers near me like Kendra Lamb, a dairy farmer at Lamb Farms just outside of Buffalo, New York. Lamb Farms produces milk with 4,200 cows and is used to make yogurt for New York City Schools. New York is the top yogurt-producing state in the country and yogurt is New York’s official state snack!
Milk is the number 1 food source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium in children’s diets. Drinking low-fat or fat-free milk can help children get their three servings of milk every day. One 8-ounce glass of milk contains as much potassium as 1 small banana, as much protein as 1 1/2 medium eggs and as much calcium as 10 cups of spinach. Without milk, families miss out on high-quality protein and other essential nutrients that ensure kids grow up healthy.
