I wonder how long I can keep naming my posts like this?
Now some of you probably aren’t super enthused at rhubarb but if you have some growing and don’t what to do with it here are some really good snacks ( or desserts ) that won’t cost you a lot of WW points.
I had pretty much written off rhubarb because of all the sugar I had to add to make it sweet enough to eat then my Mom whipped up these recipes in what I like to call her “test kitchen” and they are great! She is amazing and loves to try recipes with a WW makeover twist. These were a definite success! Thanks MOM!
15 cups diced rhubarb
3 cups splenda
Leave stand overnight in refrigerator
Next day add 1 cup water
Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.
Remove from burner and stir in two 3 oz sugar free strawberry jellos.
Now I had just a small amount of cool whip free to this and call it 1 pt. ( I know I add cool whip free to everything)
For you money savers out there Cool whip is back at a $1 this week at Kroger, Scotts and Walmart and to make it even cheaper go to couponmom.com and print the $1 off on 2 coupon. There are a lot of great coupons at this site. A friend just told me about it yesterday and I was excited to find coupons for things I buy all the time!
RHUBARB STRAWBERRY FLUFF
2 cups diced rhubarb
2 cups water
1 small cook and serve sugar free/fat free Vanilla pudding mix
Mix well and bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes until rhubarb is tender
Remove from burner and stir in one 3 oz sugar free strawberry jello
Let cool and stir in
½ container of FF Cool Whip and mix well
Pour this over 3 cups of Sliced strawberries or mix together.
(This will fill 6 one cup containers)
4 points for the whole recipe.
Not even a pt for 1 serving.
Oh and here are the little trouble makers that I just can’t resist…
Thing is you can have 17 of these for just 2 points.
That is not a bad snack.
TOO BAD I CAN’T STOP AT 17!!!
I am getting tired of calling these supper. :)
