Lightened Up Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie.

6 ingredient Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie that’s lightened-up. Go ahead, have another slice!

My early birthday dessert. :)

My birthday is May 27th and we will be home in Philadelphia celebrating Memorial Day and my birthday, so I wanted to share with you what I’ll be making for the special day.  I’m also making super moist carrot cake for my Dad – his birthday is the day after mine. This ice cream pie is such an easy dessert and would be a wonderful addition to any summer party. As long as there is a freezer nearby!

What we have here is light peanut butter cup ice cream mixed with fat free Cool Whip, lying in an Oreo cookie crust, ribboned with peanut butter in the center and on top, and sprinkled with Reese’s Pieces. Surely this gorgeous, mouthwatering pie is not diet food, but it’s not like I used full-fat ice cream, right?!

Lightened-Up Reese's Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie. Only 6 ingredients! @sallybakeblog

Here’s the ice cream I used. Edy’s is the brand name where I am from, but it is also called Dreyer’s. Any kind of ice cream or frozen yogurt will work in this recipe.

Low fat, full fat, fat-free – and any flavor you wish. You could use vanilla frozen yogurt and chop up some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and mix those into the ice cream filling. Now that sounds amazing.

Reduced Fat Edy's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

There are only 6 ingredients that you need in order to make this pie. Combine 1 quart of your ice cream (which is 2/3 of a normal ice cream carton) of choice with 8 oz of frozen whipped topping (which is 1 tub of Cool Whip). This will be your pie filling. The Cool Whip makes it extra creamy, while similtaneously making it lighter.

Make sure the ice cream is softened and the Cool Whip is thawed.  It makes things much easier, trust me.  Spread 1/2 of the filling into the homemade Oreo cookie crust (homemade = so much better). Melt 1/4 cup of peanut butter and drizzle half of it on top. Layer with the rest of the filling, then the rest of the melted peanut butter, and top it all off with Reese’s Pieces. Freeze for 6 hours.

You’ve just made the easiest lightened-up ice cream pie in the world. Peanut Butter Style.

Lightened Up Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

Serves 12-14. I do not know the nutritional information of this recipe.

Ingredients:

Oreo Cookie Crust

  • 2 cups reduced fat Oreos (about 18 Oreos)
  • 5 Tablespoons (1/3 cup) unsalted light butter, melted (or full fat butter)

Filling

  • one 8-ounce container fat free Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 quart light peanut butter ice cream, softened*
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Reese's Pieces, crushed

Directions:

Make the crust by combining the crushed cookies and melted butter. Press mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a nonstick 8-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Make the filling: In a large bowl, mix the Cool Whip and ice cream together until softened and combined evenly. Spoon 1/2 of the mixture into prepared crust. Melt the peanut butter and drizzle half over the filling. Layer the rest of the filling on top and drizzle with the remainder of the melted peanut butter. Sprinkle with crushed Reese's Pieces. Cover and freeze for about 6 hours or until firm.

Before serving, allow to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften before slicing. Keep chilled in the freezer up until you serve the pie.

*Any kind of ice cream or frozen yogurt will be fine.  Make sure you check the size of the ice cream carton. Most cartons are 1.5 quarts.  You only need 1 quart for this recipe.

    Happy Bday and have fun at home! And I wish I could have a bite of your carrot cake! I want to try it so badly!

    And of course, this pie, too! Normally my husband is the big ice cream eater in our house, but with those Reese’s Pieces, I’m all over it. I bought some…yesterday!! To use in a recipe I’ve been wanting to make. Not ice cream or pie :)

    Gorgeous pics. Tack sharp, great lighting, and pie is HARD to shoot. Especially one that’s melting on you!

    I love the drippy ice cream you caught in the photographs! Just perfect. I am one of those people who actually loves Cool Whip, and it is so great for frozen pies like this! One of my favorite pies is actually a graham-cracker crust with a filling of Cool Whip mixed with whole-berry cranberry sauce (from a can, but I’m sure homemade works too ;))…so easy, and so delicious! I’m sure your family and friends will all flip for all the desserts you are bringing them :D

    Vacationing! Free time with family is such a blessing! I wish we had this though. I have a major thing for peanut butter and also for ice cream – so this combo is killer. I’ve never tried the cool whip and ice cram trick but I’m going to next time! How thawed does the ice cream need to be? Like soup or just scoop able? Thanks Sally! Your pictures are amazing as usual – for some reason the pic of the Reese’s is one if my favorites. Maybe it’s because if I look to long at the pie, I start to go crazy!

      Hi Mary Frances! Thanks for the birthday wishes – for the consistency of the ice cream, just lightly softened. Not melted but not hard. Sorry if that’s not explained very well! Thanks for the photo compliments too! It was such a hard photoshoot because it was lightly raining outside and the pie was melting!

    We have 6 in our family and 2 yearsago (starting with the feb. birthdays) my son requested an ice cream cake for his birthday. We have been making them ever since. They get to choose their flavor. My daughter’s birthday is the same as yours (the 27th. =0) She has requested a coffee ice cream cake. To make it an ice cream cake, I use brownie as the base, slightly underbaked of course. =0) Crush one sleeve/row of oreos and put on the bottom of a greased springform pan. Bake your brownies just a couple minutes less than your normal recipe. (I follow the 9×9 directions cause my springform pan in 9in round) Let the brownies cool and then add your ice cream. I made a frosting with whipping cream and fudge sauce for chocolate recipes and pipe it on top. THEN add your fun candies, etc. oh yeah! cover loosely with plastic wrap and freeze for your special day. I make this ahead for my birthday and then no cooking for me either! Enjoy your birthday!!

        I haven’t found a favorite brownie recipe yet, but I am going to try yours. =0)
        The texture of your brownies from your chocolate covered pretzel brownies looks perfect for this recipe. I’ll email you the recipe for the frosting so this post reply doesn’t get too long. (I made it up combining several other recipes). I like the frosting b/c of the texture it has. It is firm, yet not hard to put your fork through. (when you are ready to serve this ice cream cake, let it thaw for 20-30 minutes or when it can be cut into slices.)

    Holy cow! You just reminded me of why I adore peanut butter so much! What an awesome way to use it and to lighten up the recipe is even better!

    Ice cream cake is the ONLY cake in my opinion!!! My very very favorite thing. Also, the oreo crust is mandatory. This is probably exactly what I would make for myself also. Not surprising, since we’re taste bud twins and all. Happy early birthday my friend!!!

    Sally, we are totally on the same birthday wavelength — I’ve got an ice cream treat up my sleeve too! This pie looks amazing. I love the peanut butter swirl going on, and I’m more or less obsessed with all Edy’s slow churned ice creams. Sounds like you’ve got a delicious birthday lined up!

Anyone would be lucky to enjoy this fantastic (and skinny!) dessert on their birthday! Too bad my birthday was in March. Maybe I’ll just make this and celebrate your birthday with you. :) Happy early birthday Sally!

    Happy birthday Sally!! I stumbled upon your website not long ago looking for a thick brownie recipe. We’ve been wanted to try to make brookies, but in a cookie shape, not a brownie. (Do you think that would even work?? I’d love your opinion!) I’ve tried quite a few of your recipes (your cinnamon rolls are delish!), and I’ve loved every one of them! You are AWESOME. :)

      Brookie in cookie form and not bar form. Hmm. That could definitely work, but I’d have to think about it for awhile! I’m glad you loved my cinnamon rolls. :) And thank you so much for the birthday wishes Kelsey!

    I made this over the weekend and it tasted really yummy! The only problem was, even after 10 minutes of sitting on the counter post-freeze, the crust remained stuck to the base of the springform. Whenever I cut a slice, it would be just the filling, and no amount of scraping or digging would get the crust off. We just put some Oreos on top, but any idea why this may have happened?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on May 29th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

      Was your spring-form pan non-stick? If not, that is why. Spray it with non-stick spray next time. Thanks Rosie!

    I’ve got to say – if you wanted to save a whole bunch MORE calories and fat, you could use the frozen banana ice cream trick (frozen bananas whirled up in a food processor until froyo consistency) and even add in a couple chopped up PB cups to that mixture. It would be yummy because honestly.. who doesnt like PB and banana together?!
