Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Trifle

I apologize for the apparent cookie dough feeding frenzy I caused yesterday. I forgot that most of you are recovering food addicts such as myself and well, that probably wasn't a great photo choice.

I am very upset because Deb tried out the "healthy" cookie dough and said it wasn't worth the calories :( I haven't made it yet so I may still give it a whirl but I'm not optimistic. I mean--can it really be close without the sugar, fat and flour? I just don't know.


I made this last night.

Oops, sorry! I did it again. But this is a dessert that is somewhat low in fat and calories.

Cocolate Covered Strawberry Trifle
1 box Low Fat Brownie mix, prepared, cut into 1" cubes
1 box sugar free, fat free chocolate pudding, prepared
1 carton FREE cool whip
2 c strawberries, sliced

Layer the ingredients in order 2 times. Estimated calories per 3/4 c: 150

This is easy and GOOD. Even better after it sits overnight. And this is coming from a person who scoffs at "Low Fat" anything. But somehow all of this low fat crap stuff put together is good.

I am not suggesting you eat this entire thing in the place of an entire recipe of cookie dough to be "healthier." I'm not even suggesting you eat this on a somewhat regular basis. But if you are having one of those moments--this is pretty indulgent and one serving isn't going to throw your weekly weigh-in. Also a great WOW dessert to take somewhere!

Okay, no more sweet stuff for a while.

You are killing me girl!! I am going to take a picture of my taco meatballs from last night for you. I had to laugh as frozen (cause they have grd turkey and black beans in them!) they looks JUST like that cookie dough picture. I made some clean blueberry muffins (lots of fibre!) to deal with the craving. Might be making dark choc covered strawberries tonight, LOL

That looks delicious! I am going to have give that a try! I am always down for some lower calorie dessert options. I don't eat it to often but I have to have some every so often!

How many calories for the WHOLE entire bowl? Could never have this in my house. I would eat the whole thing, unfortunately...

I have a killer brownie mocha trifle that I make that I'm now hungry for! I make a triple batch of it every year to bring to a huge fall festival my sister-in-law and brother-in-law put on every year. It's one of the first dishes to be devoured so I can't just not make it. Thankfully there's no leftovers!

I might be in the minority here but I'd rather make things with mostly regular ingredients (some low-fat but definitely no no-fat) and just eat less of it.

I do have a great sugar substitute that I love however, it's called Whey Low and it really does taste like the real deal. They've got a website you should check out at

Enjoy your tasty trifle. It looks sooooo good!
