Cleaner Mud Pie

by Devin Alexander

Devin Alexander, author of The Most Decadent Diet Ever! shares her "cleaner" mud pie recipe.

“I just love chocolate, so I spike my breakfast smoothies and oatmeal with cocoa powder, which has 1 gram of fiber per tablespoon. That may not sound like a lot, but it adds up. Thanks to cocoa powder, my ‘Cleaner’ Mud Pie has only 210 calories and 3 grams of fat, but 4 grams of fiber.”

—Devin Alexander, author of The Most Decadent Diet Ever! ($20; Broadway Books, 2008).

Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 1/4 cups finely crushed reduced-fat vanilla wafers (about 30 wafers)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons light butter (stick, not tub), melted
6 cups fat-free churned coffee or cappuccino chocolate chunk ice cream (all but about 1 cup of a 1 3/4-quart container)
1/2 cup fat-free hot fudge
12 tablespoons fat-free aerosol whipped topping

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mist a 9-inch pie plate with spray.

3. Mix the vanilla wafers, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Add the butter and use a fork to combine. The crumbs should be just sticking, but not soggy. Spoon the crumb mixture into the pie plate. Use a piece of wax paper to press the crumbs to cover the bottom and the sides of the plate evenly. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Place on a baking rack to cool, 15 to 20 minutes.

4. Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften. (Allow it to become just slightly softened, but not melted or soup-like).

5. Use an extra-large spoon, spooning small amounts of ice cream at a time, to layer the ice cream into the cooled pie crust, forming an even mound. When the pie plate is full and heaping, smooth the top with a spatula. Return the pie to the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour to harden completely. Remove from the freezer.

6. Put the hot fudge in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on low in 15-second intervals, stirring in between, until just hot.

7. Slice the pie into 12 pieces. Transfer a piece to a plate and spoon 2 teaspoons hot fudge evenly over the top. Add 1 tablespoon whipped topping. Repeat with the remaining slices, or return the remainder of the pie to the freezer until ready to serve.
