Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

As an alternative to sugar packed crust, sweet and tender pears encase a fruit and nut filling that's similar to cheesecake.

Time savers:
Up to 3 days before, prepare cheesecake mixture, but don't add the almonds.
Day before, poach pears and make sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Stuff pears and keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. Bring pears and sauce to room temp before serving.

These are very fancy, and replace your usual Thanksgiving pie quite nicely.

Makes 14-ish cookies, sized about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter each (I don't follow instructions too well - there's just NOT a teaspoon-sized cookie in my repertoire!)

The great taste of pumpkin pie, the lightness of custard, a super simple prep, low fat, low carb, vegetarian, gluten free, and only 75 calories per serving...you can't get much better than that!

This is a great recipe if you want a super quick yet satisfying chocolate treat. I usually split it into two servings, but with only 150 calories, not to mention the probiotics of yogurt, no fat, and a whopping 25 grams of protein, you could easily get away with having a piece of fruit and some toast on the side and turning this into your breakfast!

No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
Very Good 4.6/5
(472 ratings)

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

I got this recipe from a Low-Iodine Cookbook compiled by the Thyroid Cancer Survivor's Association. The original recipe called for a yield of 12 big cookies. I got 26 good sized cookies from this recipe. See my NOTE below.

A cool, delicious treat for the grownups on a hot day. Basically fat free, and you can adjust the sugar (or use substitute) to your preferences, but these are so low-cal, you might as well get a little bit of the real thing.

Want to make it kid friendly? Swap out sparkling grape juice for the champagne.
