I LOVE dessert. If it’s sweet, pass it down. And please, no tiny portions or just a taste. I want a BIG bowl of that!
The problem, of course, is that desserts tend to be crazy high in caramel, chocolate, ice cream, syrup, whipped cream, cake and powdered sugar. Translation: way-over-my-calorie/PointsPlus-limit.
But I am a determined soul, and just like I’ve hunted around for healthy recipes to satisfy my household’s “junk food” cravings, I’ve also been relentless in searching out mouthwatering desserts to satisfy my sweet tooth. These recipes feature big flavor, big servings and tiny, tiny Points/ Calorie impact.

This dessert is so good, we serve it to guests. A generous ¾ cup serving is 3pp.
- 1/3 to ½ package Store Bought Angel Food Cake Mix (compare at the store and select one with the lowest calories per serving)
- Two (2) 10 oz bags frozen peaches
- Two (2) cups frozen blueberries
- Fat free Cool Whip for garnish
(1) Preheat oven according to cake mix directions.
(2) In a mixing bowl, whisk together Angel Food Cake Mix and enough water to make a cake batter. It should be about the consistency of thinner pancake batter and will foam up (angel food cake mix is mainly egg whites).
(3) Pour your peaches (still frozen) into a 9” x 12” glass baking dish. Distribute the 2 cups of frozen blueberries evenly over the peaches.
(4) Pour the angel food cake batter evenly over the fruit.
(5) Bake according to cake mix directions (usually 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes). This does take a long time to bake so plan accordingly.
(6) Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes, if you can bear to wait. Top with fat free Cool Whip.
Be sure to put this through your WW recipe builder to confirm the points. Nutritional information for angel food cake mix varies and may affect the points value.
Crustless Strawberry Pie
You may have to hunt a bit for the sugar free cook and serve Jell-O pudding mix. I had a hard time finding the sugar free version at my local Martin’s (Giant), but was able to locate it at Wal-Mart.
6 servings per pie, 2PP per serving.
- · 2 to 4 cups of fresh strawberries, sliced (as much as needed to fill your pie plate)
- · 2 cups water
- · 1 package sugar free Jell-O cook and serve vanilla pudding
- · 1 package sugar free red Jell-O gelatin (flavor of your choice – I use raspberry to amp up the flavor)
- · Fat free Cool Whip (garnish)
(1) Slice strawberries directly into your glass or Pyrex pie plate. Set aside.
(2) Pour 2 cups of water into saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in sugar free Jell-O cook and serve vanilla pudding mix. Continue to stir/ whisk until pudding begins to thicken and bubble.
(3) Immediately whisk in 1 package of sugar free red Jell-O gelatin mix. Remove from heat.
(4) Pour pudding/ gelatin mixture evenly over the sliced strawberries in the pie plate.
(5) Refrigerate pie for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
(6) Serve with Cool Whip garnish.
I hope you and your family enjoy these recipes as much as we have!
Wishing you a very sweet and awesomelicious day!
