"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."
"Love guilt free desserts and this was truly a guilt free dessert that is perfect for a hot summer evening. We really enjoyed the fresh raspberries and knowing that in off season frozen can be used. (note to self us mixing bowl on stand mix as none of the others are deep enough not to make a mess) Thanks for the post."
"We loved this. I had just the right amount of frozen raspberries. It was a miracle. This is so fluffy. I guess that is where it got it's name. I have a recipe that is close to this but it's heavy. It must be the pudding that makes it light. This is perfect after a heavy meal. It's like eating a cloud but with flavor. Thanks for posting. :)"
"This is sooooooooo refreshing! I have lots of frozen raspberries in my freezer, so I will be making this often. Thanks for the recipe."
"Great low cal dessert! The aftertaste was a little much for me anyway- but I am just trying to get used to it! Topped this with a spring of fresh mint from my garden too. Made a lovely dessert that made you feel special and not like you are dieting! Thanks Sus! You ROCK!"
"I have made a lot of WW fluffs in the past. I really liked that this one had added fiber in the berries. I'm not sure that I liked the rasberry flavor as much as I have liked other flavors. That said, it had a good texture. Thanks for a great one to try!"
"This is great stuff! I can't believe I'm the first to review it. This makes a very pretty, light dessert packed with flavor. The mixture of cheesecake and raspberries is perfect. DO pay attention to the "deep mixing bowl" detail in step 2. I didn't and splattered my white shirt with red dots! I will certainly be making this many times. Thanks SusieQusie!"
