ladynredd - Next time you need a dessert try one of these that I found while searching on the web:


1 (4 serving) envelope low-calorie strawberry gelatin
1 c. boiling water
1 pt. strawberries, hulled and crushed
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 c. low-calorie whipped topping

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in strawberries and lemon juice.
Chill until slightly thickened. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon into individual dessert dishes.
Chill until set, about 2 hours. 6 servings. 44 calories per serving.


Instant Sorbet

Servings: 2

1 can Peaches, juice packed

Take a can of juice-packed peaches or pineapple. Freeze it for several hours. (That's right, just put the can in the freezer!) Open and dump frozen contents into food processor with metal chopping blade in place or into a blender. Process until desired consistency. Enjoy!

This is a frozen dessert, that, with a little pre-planning, is practically instant. You can also do this with frozen bananas. I find this is a good way to use them this time of year when they get over-ripe so quickly. Freeze them w/o the peels in "zip-lock" type bags - peeling them when frozen can give you frostbite! They end up very creamy--like very rich ice cream...but with no added fat,sugar, etc. This is actually quite good and extremely easy!!
