    Desserts that helped me lose 70 pounds!

    I started Weight Watchers in October 2006, and successfully avoided desserts until May 2007 ... but then I wanted to start having them again, but without jeopardizing my weight loss. All these desserts were either nonfat or low-fat, and had WW points values of 1-3 points per serving. I had at least a dessert a day from May 2007 to the present; by October 2007 I've lost 70 pounds and am a WW lifetime member. You can have your cake and eat it too! I tweaked all recipes for baked goods by substituting applesauce or Greek nonfat plain yogurt for butter or margarine. I tweaked frozen dessert recipes by substituting fat-free yogurt (or milk) for low-fat or full-fat dairy products. Specific recommendations for lowering fat/calories appears in my reviews of individual recipes.

    This is an adaptation of an Alton Brown recipe from foodnetwork.com. I experimented with it; the first time I halved the amount of yogurt, but used the original amounts of lemon juice and ginger. Too fiery for us! Now I use just enough ginger to give it flavor, but the lemon predominates. The crystallized ginger gives it that ginger "pop." The 'Zaar nutritional information may be off -- I use Fage Total Nonfat Yogurt, which means a 1/2 cup portion is 87 calories, 0 g. fat (2 WW points).
