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!!!

Peach Mousse

I still had a few peaches left and really needed to use them before they went 'funky' on me.  I wanted to do something other than a baked recipe, so I found this one and tweaked it a lot!!!!  This is so light and refreshing! Hurry and make it before peaches are out of season!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

2 pkgs (.30 oz) Peach (or orange) sugar-free Jell-o
1 cup boiling water
3 ripe peaches, pitted, peeled & sliced
2 TBSP honey
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 tub (8 oz) fat-free whipped topping

In a large bowl, dissolve the Jell-o in the boiling water.

Place the sliced peaches, honey and almond extract in a blender and process until smooth. Stir into the Jell-o. Cover and refrigerate until syrupy, about 1 1/2 hours.

In a large bowl, beat the peach mixture on high speed with an electric mixer about 5 minutes or until it doubles in size. Fold in the whipped topping. Spoon into dessert dishes. Refrigerate about 1 hour before serving.

It *was* good!
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!
