Makeover - How We Did It

We've made over this favourite dessert to save you 100 calories and 9g of total fat, including 5g of saturated fat, per serving by preparing the crust with non-hydrogenated margarine and crushed vanilla wafers instead of with flour, butter and pecans. In addition, we reduced the sugar, and used skim milk and other better-for-you products. We even added bananas for more flavour.


Substitute 1 cup graham crumbs for the crushed vanilla wafers.
