Berry Custard Cups

I tweaked a HG Girl recipe today and it was delicious. I don’t remember what this was called in the newsletters, but I kind of combined other stuff because the original one was too plain. Its a great, light dessert for summer!

Ingredients: JellO Sugar Free Fat Free Pudding Mix, fat free milk, cool whip free, blueberries, strawberries, apple butter, Athens fillo cups

Method: Make the JellO pudding according to the box. Its basically mixing it with 2 cups ff milk until it comes to a boil (you have to constantly stir it, or it’ll be lumpy!). Then let it cool, put it in the fridge. The Athens fillo cups come 15 to a box. Preheat oven to 350 F and heat them for 5-6 mins, or until browner. Take them out and allow to cool. 
In a bowl, mix 3 tbsp pudding with 2 tbsp cool whip free, kind of in a blend. Add in 1 cup blueberries and mix. Fill each cup to the brim and over (they’re small). I topped the center ones with apple butter from Central Market, and the others with just cut strawberries. If you need more whip, top each of it with reddi whip!

Enjoy! Takes about 15 minutes total to make, quick and easy and good!

Points calculation: Pudding for 1 serving, which is 1/4 of total, is 60 calories = 1pt. For the entire batch you use about 2-3 servings. Add 2 pts for the milk for the entire batch. 1 pt for blueberries. 3 cups = 1 pt. According to the WW recipe builder, each filled cup is only 1 point! 🙂

(Wanted to save this recipe and this post I made for the WW community, so double posted it here)

I felt like eating Greek, and eating pizza, so today I kind of browsed around for a bunch of recipes and threw something together that was pretty yum, according to my mom. And it was filled with veggies and has a lot of room for customization (heck, i did!), so I thought I’d share it with everyone. Its a low point dinner, and can be lower too, and its super fast!

I didn’t take a picture, but next time I will :). This works for 5 pita pockets. Its my first time writing a recipe, so bear with the weird style!

Ingredients: Pita bread (I used Toufayan white pita pockets, 2 points for 2 halves), olives, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil leaves, spinach, feta cheese, mozzarella/parmesan cheese, tomatoes, crushed red pepper, oregano, garlic clove, tomato paste, and anything else you’d like to top your pizza with.

Method: Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray the pita pockets with olive oil cooking spray (0 points) and place in over for about 5 minutes. While its heating, in a seperate bowl, mix sliced olives (I used a total of 6 large ones), balsamic vinegar (2 tsps), oregano (to taste), crushed red pepper (to taste), and one minced garlic clove (or more if you’re into garlicky), and one teaspoon olive oil (you can skip that too if wanted), and lastly tomato paste (about as much as you’d like it to be tomatoey).

Smear this mix on the pita pockets. Now top with spinach, cut tomatoes, fresh chopped basil, and whatever else, about as much as each will take. Sprinkle some feta cheese on each (it was very little on each, maybe 1tsp), and if you want, sprinkle some mozzarella cheese (I used the weight watchers 2 points one, about 1 tsp on each).

Put it back in the oven for 5-8 minutes, or until cheese is all melted. 


WW Points calculation: 2 points for 2 pita pockets, 1 point for the olive oil, and depending on how much cheese you sprinkle on, those points can vary. Mine was about 2 points total. Olives, according to the point tracker, are 1 point for 6 large olives, and I ate about 2 so it works out to 0. Everything else is 0! So I’d say per serving of two pita pockets, you’d get 5 points. 

🙂 If anybody else has any suggestions to improve, do pass on!
