Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins
{Pin It}

I love the flavor of pumpkin, and I really like that it is so good for you – those two things don’t always go hand in hand.

Pumpkin has fiber, antioxidants, beta carotene, iron, Vitamins A,C,K, and E. It makes for a great ingredient in many recipes, and it also keeps goodies moist instead of dry like many “healthy” recipes.  These Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins come in at right about 4 points.

Homemade Fruit Sorbet Recipe

Fruit Sorbet Recipe
{Pin It}

As temperatures start to warm up, this fresh fruit sorbet recipe will hit the spot. It is a great palette cleanser, a perfect light dessert, and much healthier than store bought. This literally tastes like biting int a fresh, ripe piece of fruit – but even better. PLUS you can feel good about giving this to the kids on a hot day over an unhealthy scoop of processed ice cream.

My favorite combination is Cantaloupe but you can also use; Honeydew, Watermelon, Peaches, Mango’s, or Strawberries. Use whatever is fresh and in season for optimum flavor.

Fruit Sorbet Recipe:

Ingredients:

2 cups fresh fruit
¼ cup coconut water
2 Tbsp. Lime juice
¼ cup granulated sugar

Weight Watchers Strawberry Pie Recipe

Weight Watchers Strawberry Pie Recipe
{Pin It}

A sweet and tasty summer treat, this Weight Watchers Strawberry Pie is a yummy and low calorie way to indulge your sweet tooth. Fresh, light strawberries, tangy jello, and creamy pudding combine to create a filling that satisfies cravings, but is more forgiving of your waistline than most desserts. To lighten it up even more, pour filling directly into a pie pan and skip the crust. This pie is roughly estimated at 5 points per slice.

Try other variations such as chocolate for the pudding, or make it with different berries like raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries and the same flavor of sugar free Jello.

It’s finally strawberry picking time and that leads to delicious spring and summer treats! This low calorie strawberry smoothie is a perfect way to enjoy all the strawberries you pick or that you can find in abundance at your local stores.

Weight Watchers Banana Bread Recipe

One of the things I always miss when trying to diet are sweets. This weight watchers banana bread recipe is only 2 Points per slice.  It fits right into my daily point allowance and is truly the perfect treat to satisfy that craving I have. Not only is it full of potassium and fiber thanks to the bananas, but it is amazingly moist and so much like a traditional Banana Bread that you won’t be able to tell that it is actually lower in fat and calories.

Weight Watchers Banana Bread Recipe:

INGREDIENTS

3 Ripe Bananas Mashed
¼ Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Splenda
1 Cup All Purpose Flour (sifted)
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
