    Hoping I can still post a recipe here?

    This is a recipe that I got from a WW meeting years ago and really love it! I sometimes make it not in a pie shell and just have the insides of the pie for snacks. Without the crust it is 2 points per serving. The original recipe was Key Lime pie and used Lime Jello, and Key Lime Pie Yoplait yogurt, so you can experiment with flavors, I have also done strawberry and that is really good too. I'm thinking orange would be really good too, like an orange cream sickle.

    Raspberry Pie W/ Crust

    Course: desserts

    Servings: 8

    Ingredients

    Had to have cupcakes today, but am on weight watchers, so made them without the eggs and oil!

    1 box of white cake mix
    1 can of diet orange soda

    Empty contents of 1 box of cake mix into a mixing bowl. Slowly pour in 1 can of diet soda. Stir until smooth (it will be foamy and bubbly at first). Pour into liners in muffin tins and bake according to directions on cake mix package. Let cool and top with 1 tbsp. of fat free (or light) whipped cream.

    Mix and match flavors of cake mix and diet sodas. Devils food cake mix and diet cherry coke, Red Velvet cake mix and diet 7up, Chocolate cake mix and diet vanilla coke, yellow cake mix and diet root beer, etc.

    I am so curious to try this - can you taste the flavour of the soda?? (I'm on a big Root Beer kick and am thinking this could be super yummy!!

    Okay tried this one this morning!! I used root beer (yum) and a French Vanilla cake mix I had in the cupboard - they are yummy!! And so light!
    I wish there was a bit more root beer flavour, but that might be because of the french vanilla, vs a yellow cake.

    Here's my favourite low fat brownie recipe. They are quite yummy - and fit the bill for me when I want ooey gooey brownies, but don't want the guilt!


    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    1 pkg (3.5 oz) instant chocolate pudding
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    2/3 cup sugar
    3 tbsp butter or margarine
    1 egg
    1 egg white (I usually use 2 eggs cause I hate to waste the yolk - silly I know!)
    1/4 cup baby food prunes (you don't taste the prune flavour, unless you over do it - so be sure to measure - I made that mistake once! Still yummy, but different flavour!)
    1 tsp vanilla
    Recipe calls for 1/3 cup mint chocolate chips - I have never used these. Will sometimes use regular chocolate chips, if I have them - or just leave them out!

    Preheat oven to 350
    Spray a 8" pan with non stick spray
    Mix together flour, pudding, baking powder and salt - set aside
    In a separate bowl, beat together sugar, butter, egg and egg white (medium speed) Add prunes and vanilla, beat again. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth.
    Fold in mint chips
    Spread evenly into pan.
    Bake for 30 to 35 minutes

    Another yummy dessert - that's not too high in fat - is called Fantasy Island Cake

    1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
    1 c sugar
    1/2 c brown sugar
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 cup crushed pineapple in juice
    1/3 c mashed ripe bananas
    1 egg
    2 egg whites
    3/4 tsp vanilla
    1/2 c mini chocolate chips (I have made it without these)
    1/3 c. chopped walnuts (I have also made it without these)
    1 tablespoon flour

    Preheat oven to 350

    Combine flour, sugar, br sugar, baking powder and baking soda and set aside

    Blend together crushed pineapple (I use canned pineapple rings and put them through the food processor), banana, egg, egg whites, and vanilla - on low speed.
    Gradually mix in the floour mixture and beat on medium-high until all dry ingredients have been incorporated

    In a small bowl mix together choc chips, walnuts and 1 tbsp flour - fold into batter (the flour keeps these from sinking to the bottom of the cake - who knew?)

    Spray an 8 x 8 pan with non stick spray and pour batter into the pan.
    Bake for 40-45minutes


    Yummy!!!

    That seems amazing. I am going to need to try this next time I go to the store and get a diet soda.
