The first recipe I posted in 2013 was a cranberry recipe. The last recipe I'm posting in 2013 is also a cranberry recipe. This was not planned! This recipe has just the right amount of sweetness and the right about of tartness to tickle your palate. It's kind of high in P+, but so worth it!
Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 7 PointsPlus™
12 oz. fresh cranberries, rinsed
1 small (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained (OR pineapple bits, drained)
1 pkg (8 oz.) Neufchatel cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz. tub of fat-free whipped topping.
Grind berries in a blender or food processor. If you are using pineapple bits, put them in with the berries.
In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and powdered sugar using an electric mixer. Fold in the whipped topping by hand.
Add the berry/pineapple mixture to the whipped topping mixture.
Spoon into 4 dessert dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour until 'set'.
MY SPIN: One of these days I'm going to dig out my food processor and learn how to use it. Doing the berries and pineapple in a blender......I had to stop and use a spatula to mix them up a bit to be sure they all got 'smooshed'!
