JUST SOME DESSERT, PLEASE

My husband and I have been trying some of the Weight Watcher Dinners. I want to learn some things from the way they are cooked, the portions, etc. We have been trying to do the point system. Not going to Weight Watchers but I had attended once before so I had the books. So we have eaten the right point values for breakfast and lunch and any snacks but leaving enough for the dinner Weight Watcher Meals. So far so good. We bought one of their desserts last week. We wanted something sweet so much. I was afraid we were going to mess up if we did not not eat something that we could count into our daily meal. So we bought the Key Lime Pie dessert that Weight Watchers makes. It was delicious. The package comes with two servings in it. Just perfect, not too much but not too little either.

I looked everywhere to see if I could find the recipe, No luck. Finally I decided to Google it up on the e-net. My husband always tells me when I don't know something to Google it up. So that is what I did. This was under the title Weight Watchers Key Lime Pie. So we shall see. I will make it sometime this week. I sure hope it is the same. Here is the recipe if you are interested.

WEIGHT WATCHERS KEY LIME PIE

1 reduced fat graham cracker crust
1--1/16 package sugar- free lime gelatin
1/4 cup boiling water
1- 8 ounce container fat-free whipped topping
2- 6 ounces key lime pie yogurt

1) In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water.
2) Stir in yogurt with wire whisk.
3) Fold in whipped topping with wooden spoon.
4) Spread in crust.
5) Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

This has 3 points per serving.

Other facts:
CALORIES 73
TOTAL FAT: 6.3g
SODIUM 37 mg
TOTAL CARBOHYDRATE 3.6g

This does not include the crust or the yogurt. This is not something I would advise anyone to eat every night but on those times when you just think you can't go one more meal without a taste of something sweet well this is it. That is if you like tart, sweet desserts.

I hope all of you are doing great!!! connie

I'm glad you found something to satisfy your sweet tooth without ruining your diet!

Unfortunately, the only ingredient for that recipe that I can get is the boiling water! LOL It's a good thing I gave up sweet things anyway ;) I hope it works well for you!

Tori, This dessert is the only one that I have tried. I am afraid I might get to liking them too good.lol

My husband had been telling me for the longest time, "you can find what ever you need on the E-net, just google it up." I have found a lot of things that way. Even the answer to silly questions.

I sure hope it turns out like the one we ate. It was very good, I know that. Hope things are going well for you, Tori. connie
