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!!!

Lime Mousse

What a wonderful way to 'kick off' Spring than a luscious fruity mousse! This is super easy to make and has only 4 ingredients (not counting the water). Most people really stuff themselves at a holiday feast, so I think this dessert would be so much lighter than a cake or pie or some cookies......and alot lower in PointsPlus™ as well!!!

Makes 6 Servings = 1 PointsPlus™ a Serving
Makes 5 Servings = 2 PointsPlus™ a Serving

1 (4 servings size) package sugar-free lime gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp finely shredded lime peel
2 TBSP lime juice
1 (8 oz) container light sour cream
1 cup fat-free whipped topping
OPTIONAL: 1/2 cup fat-free whipped topping; maraschino cherries, lime peels or curls

In a large bowl, combine gelatin and boiling water; stir until dissolved. Stir in lime juice and shredded lime peel. Cool for @15 minutes in the refrigerator until slightly cooled but not set.

Whisk in sour cream.

Gently whisk in 1 cup whipped topping.

Pour into 6 (or 5) dessert glasses/dishes. Cover and chill 2 – 24 hours or until set.

OPTIONAL: Garnish with a dollop of whipped topping and a cherry or lime peels or curls.

Yup.....it WAS delicious!

MY SPIN: Try this with lemon or orange as well.

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. ***

Loving Life(time)!
