I've told my husband as long as I can remember, that it does no good to keep dessert out of our house…because I have a very demanding sweet tooth! Instead we try to make sure we have plenty of lower calorie treats waiting for me when the I'm in the mood for dessert…which is, well, almost every night.
Here are some of my favorite everyday desserts made extra special by simply adding COOL WHIP whipped topping:
One single serve container of Jell-O Decadence Chocolate Mousse,
+ a big dollop of COOL WHIP right on top! Voila!
I'm definitely not the only one in the family that enjoys their dessert! Recently, Zion has been asking more and more for a "treat" after dinner. I have to admit, I love love love the joy it brings when I bring out something I've baked for her and she smiles and says, "So Yummies!"
1 Cup Frozen Berries,
1/4 Cup Yogurt,
1/4 Cup COOL WHIP,
1/2 Cup of Milk -
Top with a dollop of whipped topping!
My husband has a soft spot in his heart for brownies with ice cream, but I've discovered that I can help him cut out a few calories by forgoing the ice cream and using COOL WHIP instead! He certainly hasn't complained!
Brownie "A'La More"!
Brownie Mix prepared per package directions,
Topped with generous amounts of COOL WHIP!
I love my coffee and I love chocolate. So when I discovered that I could make rich, creamy home-made mochas using brewed coffee and hot cocoa mix, I never turned back! I have to say that nothing makes a homemade mocha more perfect than finishing it with a dollop of COOL WHIP and a few sprinkles.
8oz fresh brewed coffee,
1 packet instant cocoa mix,
Top with a generous dollop of COOL WHIP.
Now that the weather is warming up, and fresh fruit is filling up the produce sections…I'm ready to make some delicious fruit salad. Is there anything more enjoyable than sitting out on the deck on a warm sunny day eating a bowl of fresh fruit salad!?
Fresh Fruit Salad!
A bowl of chopped fresh fruit (whatever is in season!)
Tossed with plenty of COOL WHIP, so simple, yet so divine!
What is your go-to dessert!? Have any simple dessert recipes to share? I'd love to hear about it!
