Look what I found in the archives - Boy, this goes back to 2001 ... anyway, thought I would bump it up - maybe we can add too it.


Original Post:

If you have a great recipe that is healthy or low-fat, please post it so we can all enjoy!

Zoe - I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty to post your eclair dessert! It sounds sooooooo good!

Chocolate Éclair Dessert (Zoe)

1 box of low fat graham crackers
1 12oz container fat free cool whip
2 small boxes f/f s/f instant vanilla pudding
1 small box f/f s/f instant chocolate pudding
3 cups + 1 1/2 cups skim milk

Combine the vanilla puddings with 3 cups of the skim milk. Mix on low only until combined. Let it stand for 2 minutes. In the meantime, layer graham crackers in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, all the way to the edges. (takes about 7 1/2-8 crackers).

Gently fold the cool whip into the vanilla pudding. Spread 1/2 of this onto the crackers. Layer another 7 1/2-8 crackers on top, all the way to the edges. Spread the rest of the vanilla pudding on top. Layer more crackers.

Combine the chocolate pudding with 1 1/2 cups of skim milk, just until combined. Let stand 2 minutes. Spread the chocolate pudding on top of the crackers. Cover and refriderate several hours or over night to soften the crackers.

12 servings = 4 WW pts
18 servings = 2 WW pts

Here’s a great recipe for pineapple cake - it makes large servings, and only 2 pts. per serving! If you have a sweet tooth, this one's for you.

PINEAPPLE CAKE

1 box fat free angel food cake mix
1 20 oz. can crushed pinepple. Don't drain juice.
Mix ingredients together.
(do not follow the directions on the box – just add the crushed pineapple and mix gently)

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and cooked through. It seems to be a little more moist the less time you cook it. Cut into 12 equal pieces.

Can also be baked in two 9” rounds and frosted with cool whip as a two –layer and decorated with strawberries to create a birthday cake. (beats the points in a traditional birthday cake)

Add 2 more points for the Cool Whip and berries.

Love, CJ
