After reading all the variations of the infamous _fluff_ that WW folks love, I was puzzled by the *1* point count that seems to be a popular idea. All the recipes I found call for fat-free Cool Whip but that it is *not* sugar-free as well. By my calculations, the standard _fluff_ is actually 3-4 points per serving. My math – FF Cool whip = 375/cals per 8 ounce tub, SF pudding = 100/cals per small box and SF Jello = 40/cals per box. With 515/cals per recipe and most stating 4 servings, that's 128 cals/serving and using my handy-dandy WW calculator, I compute 3 points, not 1. So how to make it truly 1 point or close enough? Add something with fiber. Enter raspberries. Although it doesn't jive with Zaar data, if http://www.nutritiondata.com and http://www.calorieking.com are reliable, one cup raspberries = a mere 64/cals but packs a whopping 8g fiber. Again using my official calculator, the following recipe is exactly 1.25 points/serving. And it tastes wonderful!

Oh My Goodness..!! This is to die for. I used sf strawberry jello, sf/ff white chocolate instant pudding and canned strawberries. I used the juice from the strawberries for part of the liquid in the jello and it turned out fantastic. I put some in a small bowl to see how it would taste frozen and it's as good as the free ice cream they sell for those of us watching our fat & sugar intake. I'm going to try it making ice cream sandwiches for my g-daughter and I'll bet they're good also. Geez, all the different flavor possibilities are endless...BTW, I get the canned strawberries from my local Dollar Tree and I love them. Thanks for a great and versatile recipe.

- Beat with your electric mixer, on high, for 2 minutes or until all lumps dissolve.
