Pretzel Crust Fruit Pie RecipeRecipe posted in: Flex™ Meals & Snacks, Snacks, Healthy Sides & Snacks
Looking for the easiest, most delicious dessert recipe for your summer celebrations? This Pretzel Crust Fruit Pie is your answer! Light whipped topping and freshly sliced peaches and plums are layered into a three-ingredient pretzel crust and garnished with lime for a refreshingly simple dessert.
We love an easy, breezy fruit pie that comes together in a snap. We simplify the hardest part about making pie by substituting crushed pretzels, melted light butter and coconut sugar for the crust. Simply combine them together and press into a greased pie pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes, then let it cool in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Once the pretzel crust is cool, spread light whipped topping over it. Top it with sliced peaches and plums. Have fun and feel free to make a beautiful design! Finally, drizzle a little lime juice and zest over the top and refrigerate until the fruit pie is cold. Slice, serve and enjoy!
Healthy Hacks: This Pretzel Crust Fruit Pie recipe is very versatile. Check out some simple swaps and adjustments you can make below:
- Feel free to swap in whole wheat or multigrain pretzels if you can find them for some extra fiber.
- If you’re watching your sugar intake, you can substitute the coconut sugar with a zero-calorie sweetener like stevia or monk fruit extract.
- Not a fan of peaches or plums? Substitute any other type of fruit that you enjoy! It would be delicious with strawberries, blueberries or cherries.
- For some extra flavor, you can mix in some vanilla extract or another type of extract with the light whipped topping.
- If you prefer, you can try using lemon juice and zest instead of lime.
- Want to pump up the protein with a PowerFuel? Mix in some low-fat Greek yogurt with the cool whip or top the pie with chopped nuts like peanuts, almonds or cashews.
