Maybe my next sweet fix

I’m on SparkPeople (It’s a support site for weight loss. Very cool tools and forums. Even full meal plans. FREE!Anyone on there??) though I’m not really all that active lately.  I get emails every day with encouragement or recipes or exercises, etc.  I glance at them and delete them or file them usually. But this one really caught my attention.

No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.
Low Fat Graham Crackers
8 oz. fat free cream cheese (softened)
1 cup cold skim milk
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
1 small box instant vanilla pudding (sugar free)
8 oz. fat free Cool Whip
1 can lite cherry pie filling (or any flavor)
Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with whole graham crackers. Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add milk and lemon juice to the cream cheese and beat until smooth. Stir in pudding mix, then fold in Cool Whip. Spread 1/2 of cream cheese mixture over graham crackers. Repeat with another layer of graham crackers and cream cheese mixture. Spread pie filling over top. Refrigerate overnight for graham crackers to soften. Enjoy :)

The trouble with me and sweets is that I can’t say no and I can’t just have a little.  I must eat whatever is in my reach and alot of it.  It’s why something like the BrocChick thing works for me, because there’s no wiggle room or “allowances” that I can run away with.

But next time I’ve got a dessert to bring to an event, or maybe just when I want a little something, I’ll make this up…and send all but a serving to work with M.  It looks pretty darn yummy, and it’s not bad at all as sweet things go!

Somebody try it and tell me what you think!
