About Me

Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Strawberry Mousse


Just when you (and I) thought I was done with the strawberry stuff.....here's another one!  Tidwell's is done selling strawberries, so this is (I think) the end of the strawberry recipes.  I had one quart left and needed to use them before they went funky on me.  This is such a refreshing dessert with alot of flavor.  I can't wait until peaches are in season so I can try this with peaches!

STRAWBERRY MOUSSE
Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 3 PointsPlus™


1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
1 (8 oz.) package fat-free cream cheese, softened & cubed
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz. container of fat-free whipped topping

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth.


Transfer to a large bowl. Fold in the fat-free whipped topping.

Spoon into 6 dessert dishes/cups.


Cover and chill at least 3 hours.

MY SPIN: If you don't want to use fat-free cream cheese and opt to use the Neufchatel, this would come out to 7 PointsPlus™ a serving.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
