Anyone have any recipes to share?

I made this and it's delicious. :up:

Creamsicle Pudding

1 small box sugar-free orange flavored Jello
1 small box sugar free instant vanilla pudding
1 small container fat-free Cool Whip
1 small can mandarin oranges (optional)

Dissolve orange Jello in one cup of boiling water. Stir in 1 cup ice cold water OR crushed ice. Remove any ice junks that don't melt. Let sit 5 minutes.
With a whisk or mixer, mix in dry vanilla pudding mix until well belended. Fold in Cool Whip (and mandarin oranges if using) with a spatula. Chill.

For those on WW, 1 cup= 1 point. :up:

Now that sounds good. Thanks Bama. This is one thing I would like to have more of, treats for those times when I am just craving something so sweet, or salty and fattening. I have lost 25 lbs., then gained 5 back. I need to lose 10 more lbs. to be where I want to be.

I need to lose 10 more pounds too Mary. I have to keep treats like this around for when I'm craving junk food. I try to keep snacks around 100 calories or less.
Another favorite of mine is half a frozen banana drizzled with a LITTLE bit of chocolate. I buy the little pouches of chocolate coating that are for making chocolate covered bananas and instead of dipping the frozen bananas, I just drizzle a small amount on them and re-freeze. My kids love them too and it's a great way to use up ripe bananas.

LOL, thanks. All I could envision was one of those "I Love Lucy" episodes where they blow up the kitchen.

i made the below for Easter dinner and even the non dieters were eating it up, i was quite happy i had made two, my sister thought she was taking one home, but it got eaten up.



Cool Strawberry Cream Pie -Low Carb :-)

Meringue shell
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
3 tbsp Splenda

Filling
1 small package sugar free gelatin (strawberry or raspberry?
i pint heavy cream
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, I used light cream cheese
1/4 cup Splenda
1 quart strawberries, cleaned and sliced

preheat oven to 275f. Grease one Pyrex pie plate and set aside. Beat egg whites till foamy, add cream of tartar then beat whites until whites stand in peaks. Add Splenda and beat for an additional minute or two. Spread the meringue evenly in the bottom of the pie plate and up the sides.

Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes in a 275f oven, then raise the temp to 300f and for an addition 15-20 minutes, remove from oven and cool while you are making filling.

Dissolve gelatin with 3/4 cup boiling water, stir in 1/3 cup cold water, place in freezer for 15-20 minutes (mine took longer) just until is begins to gel, when gelatin is ready whip the heavy cream until stiff, but not dry, fold in cream cheese and splenda, fold in gelatin.

stir in strawberries, reserve a few for garnishing, pour over meringue in pie plate and let chill until firm, at least 2 hours.

1- 8oz. fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
44 whole strawberries (washed and cored to form hollows about 3/4" deep)
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

With electric mixer, mix together cream cheese, vanilla, sugar, and lemon juice.
Fill middle of each strawberry with cream cheese mixture. ( A plastic freezer bag with a corner cut off works well.)
Dip each top in graham cracker crumbs. Chill 2 hours or more.

4 strawberries = app. 65 calories or 1 ww point
