Raspberry Mousse Angel Pie - 3 Points

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Pie

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
--Meringue Crust
3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar -- preferable superfine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
--Raspberry Mousse Filling
12 ounces raspberries, frozen -- thawed
3 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur -- (Chambord or Framboise)
1 1/2 cups Nonfat yogurt
mint sprigs -- for garnish

TO MAKE CRUST: Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, cream of tartar and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup sugar and beat for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Add vanilla and beat for 7 to 10 minutes longer, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until all the sugar is dissolved and the meringue is stiff and shiny.
Spread the meringue over the bottom and sides of the prepared pie plate. using the back of a spoon, spread some meringue up to the rim, forming a decorative edge. Alternatively, using a piping bag fitted with a start tip, pipe the meringue into the pie plate. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until firm and crisp. Cool on a wire rack. (The meringue crust can be prepared ahead and stored, covered, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.)
TO MAKE FILLING: Set a few raspberries aside in the refrigerator for garnish. In a food processor or blender, puree the remaining raspberries and juice. If desired, pass the puree through a fine strainer to remove seeds. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Let stand for about 3 minutes to soften. Stir in orange or apple juice and lemon juice. heat over low heat, stirring, for 1 to 3 minutes, or until gelatin is dissolved. Add the reserved puree, sugar and salt. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur.
Pour the raspberry mixture into a heat-proof bowl and set over a larger pan of ice water. Stir gently for 10 to 20 minutes, or until the mixture thickens to the consistency of raw egg whites. Whisk in yogurt. Pour into the meringue crust. Cover loosely with plastic and refrigerate until set, for at least 3 hours or for up to 8 hours. Garnish with the reserved raspberries and mint sprigs.

"This low-fat mousse filling is rich and satisfying, with an intense
fruit flavor. it is a streamlined version of raspberry Bavarian
cream, which is traditionally made with heavy cream. This may be
served with vanilla yogurt and fresh raspberries, if desired"

Anyone have a non fat blueberry cobler recipie?

09-23-2002, 12:33 AM
I don't think it's totally fat-free, but this a recipe we talked about at a meeting a couple of weeks ago:

30 oz of fruit (maybe canned or frozen if you wish)
1 box cake mix (yellow)
2 cans diet Sprite

Put the fruit in the bottom of a 13x9 pan. Crumble the cake mix over it, then pour on the 2 cans Diet Sprite.
Bake at 350, 20 minutes covered with tin foil, then 40 more minutes uncovered.

It's pretty good, and the pan makes 12 servings at 3 points per serving.

I tried this recipe with a white cake , 2 cups blueberries and diet 7up. It was wonderful. I am going to give it a try with different fruit and cake.

I made this for Memorial Day, everyone loved it and it's low fat and easy:

2 bags frozen berries (no sugar added) I used mixed berries
1 white cake mix
12 oz. diet 7 up

Place frozen berries in a 9x13 pan, sprinkle dry cake mix on top of berries, pour soda over all. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Serve with Cool whip free. Cut into 12 pieces= 3 points a piece!

Let me know what you think of it...

05-27-2003, 11:59 PM
I make kind of the same thing ...the only difference is that I add the soft drink to the cake mix, and make a batter, then pour the batter over the berries and bake then becomes 'cobbler' :). We love it.

this was soo good thanks for sharing!

02-16-2004, 05:12 PM
Do you use cake mix that only needs water added, or the kind that needs eggs, oil etc. I realize in this recipe you add the diet pop, but what kind of mix should I buy?

02-21-2004, 08:56 PM
This really does sound good! In the first directions is it more like a cake consistency?

02-24-2004, 11:22 AM
I use a regular cake mix (beyy Crocker, Duncan Hines) not the small Jiffy kind. It is more like a cobbler than a cake. Very good and worth a try.

03-02-2004, 01:42 AM
Thanks Ideal, will try it!

I made this for Mother's Day and it was great...

2 small pkg. SF Raspberry Jello
2 cups boiling water
2-10 oz. bags of frozen raspberries
8 oz. FF cool whip
8 oz. FF cream cheese
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups crushed FF pretzels

Mix the jello with the water until dissolved, add the frozen berries and let this set up. Mix together the cool whip, cream cheese and sugar. Spread this over the jello, top with crushed pretzels. I made this in a 9 x 13 pan and cut into cake-like squares, but you could also make it in a glass bowl. Enjoy!

I desperately want to make this dessert...does anyone know what the points are for it?

Strawberry/Raspberry Pretzel Dessert

Does anybody have a low fat version/made over recipe of this dessert? It's got a pretzel crust, layered with cream cheese and then strawberry or raspberry jello. I thought I had seen it here before, but didn't print it and can't find it again. And if so, do you have the WW Points for it? I think I could make it over easy enough myself, but wouldn't know how to figure the points.


06-17-2004, 05:26 PM
I calculated it at 3 points...let me know if you like it!

I make a similar dessert although basically I do the jello with fruit base and then put sugar-free vanilla mousse (from Oeteker) on top and then garnish with raspberries. It's a popular treat, simple and low points (I figure 2 for a cup)!

08-03-2004, 10:47 PM
I used 1/2 box of white cake mix - 2 cubs of blueberries and 1 can of diet sprite - using an 8 x 8 pan and following the same time and temps to get 6 servings - thought it was real good...

11-12-2004, 09:07 AM
Just add up all of the calories from the ingredients and divide how many servings to get your points.
