I don't know that it's low carb, but it's lower fat and calories. Strawberry shortcake.

1 Pillsbury Less Sugar Cake Mix (white or yellow)
1 diet soda
1 Dole frozen sliced strawberries no sugar added
1/4 cup smuckers (or any brand) strawberry sugar free preserves or jam
1 tub Fat free cool whip

Mix diet soda with cake mix (that's all, no water, no eggs, no oil just the diet soda) and bake as usual

Meanwhile thaw strawberries and then mix with preserves.

After the cake has cooled spread strawberry mixture on top of cake.

Spread cool whip over all and chill in fridge for an hour or two at least.

That's it. It tastes wonderful!

Probably not low carb, but this is around 200 calories per serving, plus the berries and sour cream topping. From Eating For Life by Bill Phillips, who does the Body For Life program. His thing is a balance of carbs and protein.

Strawberry Cheesecake

1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp Splenda granular
12 oz fat-free cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup egg substitute
1 Ready Crust reduce-fat graham cracker crust
cup fat-free sour cream
2 tsp sugar substitute
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spoon cottage cheese into blender and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add vanilla extract and Splenda; blend for about 15 more seconds.

Add the softened cream cheese and blend for about 30 seconds, scraping down sides as needed. While blending, gradually add egg substitute and continue to blend until smooth, about 45 seconds.

Pour cheese filling into Ready Crust and bake until set, about 35 minutes.

Remove cheesecake from oven and cool for about 15 minutes. Then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Prior to serving, in a small mixing bowl, combine sour cream and sugar substitute. Slice cheesecake into 8 portions, top with sliced strawberries and sour cream.

Serves 8.

That's a tall order, Mug! Here's my offering:

This tastes rich and fattening, but is virtually fat-free. I double the sauce, so I have lots.

MOCK STRAWBERRIES ROMANOFF

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. orange juice
zest from half an orange
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp rum flavoring (or 1/4 tsp rum)
1/2 c. non-fat sour cream
2 pints fully ripe strawberries

DIRECTIONS:

Wash and hull berries, cutting larger berries in half. Cover and refrigerate.
To make sauce: Combine sugar, orange zest, and orange juice in a small saucepan. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Blend in cinnamon, rum flavoring, (or rum), and sour cream. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Place berries in individual serving dishes and top with sauce.

I had an idea. But Ive never done it and I cant find any similar recipes. Give your honest opinion............

What about a chocolate pudding pie, with the crust made out of crushed ice cream cones? Not the sugar cones, but the regular plain round cones?

I had an old recipe for low-fat cheesecake (which was really just OK), and it used teddy grahams or graham crackers as a crust, mixed with some egg white to hold it together, I think.

If you google "low carb pie crust", lots of ideas come up: nut flours, etc.

that probably won't work. I would imagine that the cones would get really mushy. If you are going to do that, I would try it out as a test recipe first to see if it works.

My mom used to make chocolate pudding pie with a graham cracker crust. It was a great treat.

What about bringing some fruit salad?

The trouble with low carb crusts is that they are usually nut-based, and so not very low-fat. You can probably choose low fat OR low carb, but other than berries with fat free yogurt, you're probably not going to get both.

However, I googled some recipes. The "Irish Coffee Meringues" look pretty good.

What about just a pretty fruit salad? I bet others might appreciate the option as much as you would.

Edit: Oops! Tai suggested the same thing...

I love the idea of a fruit salad. Most people LOVE eating it, but are too lazy to do it themselves, so it's always a big hit.

I made this recently when I was invited to a friends house. Every one there LOVED and RAVED about it. It was a huge hit.

Original recipe here:
http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/1000907-post12.html

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites appox 16 calories each

1 (8 ounce) package fat free cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
44 medium strawberries, whole
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, optional

1.In a small mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice until smooth and creamy, set aside. *I added about 1/2 tsp vanilla

2.Using a paring knife, hollow out the top of each strawberry to a depth of approximately 3/4 an inch. Gently fill each with cream cheese mixture using a pastry bag just slightly above the tops. Place them on a cookie sheet(s) as you do this. *I didn't bother with the pastry bag. I just spooned it in there.

3.Once all of the strawberries are filled, dip each top into the graham cracker crumbs and place back onto the cookie sheet. *Next time, I would probably dip the berries into the crumbs right before serving. They got a little soggy and hard to see. They tasted fine, but you didn't get the full, pretty effect of them.

4.Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator and leave them for a few hours or over night to completely chill *I just left them in a couple of hours.

Oh and I dipped a bunch of them in some melted chocolate chips. But believe me, they were 100% fine and yummy without it.

Yep. Fruit salad. I did one the other day with apples, pears, oranges, kiwi, banana's and watermelon. SO GOOD if you let it sit for a couple hours so the flavours can mingle

What a cute idea!

I am always a fan of fruit salads...this is a great time of year for fresh fruit. My favorite combo is strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, apples, watermelon, cantaloupe and mandrine oranges.

This is a fantastic apple salad that tastes like it has to be bad for you! It makes a pretty large bowl if you use apple slices.

5-6 Granny Smith apples
15-oz can Crushed Pineapple (natural juice)
1 sm box sugar-free Butterscotch instant pudding mix
8 oz fat-free cool whip

Chop apples with peels left on. Dissolve pudding mix with pineapple; stir. Mix crushed pineapple mixture with the chopped apples. Mix in cool whip.
