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!!!

Mango Custard

Believe it or not, I only discovered how much I love mangoes last year. This year, it's time to experiment with them instead of just eating them with yogurt.  This is the first of hopefully a few mango recipes.

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 1 PointsPlus™

1 cup pureed mango (1 or 2 mangoes)
1 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Process peeled/pitted mango(es) in a blender until smooth.

Beat egg substitute until frothy with an electric mixer. Add Splenda, beating until blended. Gradually add evaporated milk, pureed mango and vanilla, beating at low speed until blended.

Pour into 8 6-oz custard cups/ramekins. Set in a roasting pan; add hot water to a depth of 1”.

Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove cups from water to a cooling rack. Custard will 'deflate' while cooling. Cool on rack @15 minutes; cover and refrigerate @3 hours before 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. ***

Loving Life(time)!
