Low Calorie Strawberry Chiffon Dessert
Dissolve the gelatin in boiling water. Stir in strawberries and lemon juice. Chill until slightly thickened, then fold in the whipped topping. Spoon into individual dessert dishes. Chill until set (about two hours). Makes six servings at 44 calories per serving.
Low Calorie Layered Dessert
Mix the butter, flour and salt with a pastry blender. Press the mixture into an eight-inch pie pan and bake at 375 degrees for fifteen minutes. Let cool.
Create the filling by mixing cream cheese, vanilla, and sweetener until smooth, then add the coconut. In a separate bowl, mix the chocolate pudding according to the package directions.
Put the cream cheese filling mixture on the crust. Slice bananas on top of the mixture, and then evenly pour the pudding on top of the bananas. Top with the low-calorie whipped topping, to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve. This recipe makes four servings.
Low Sugar Chocolate Dessert
Mix together melted butter, flour and nuts. Crumble into a 9 x 13-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for twenty-five minutes, chopping up crust frequently.
Prepare the whipped topping according to directions on the package. Mix together Neufchatel cheese, powdered sugar, and two cups of the whipped topping.
Prepare the chocolate pudding mix according to directions, but use only 3 cups of milk.
When the crust is cool, spread over it the Neufchatel mixture. Cover this layer with the pudding mixture. Spread with remaining whipped topping as the top layer. Sprinkle with nuts, if desired. Chill and serve cold.
