Low Sugar Watergate Salad

February 19, 2014
When I was a toddler teacher, my co-teacher and I did a unit on cooking and asked every family to contribute a recipe to be included in a class cookbook.  One of the moms who was really into fitness and body building (she was a former model!), submitted this recipe.  I'm not saying it's totally healthy, but it is a better option than a lot of the desserts out there because the pineapple juice sweetens the dessert naturally.  I've made this dessert several times since she shared the recipe with me, and I really like it.  It's easy to make and not very time consuming, as it takes about 5 minutes!  It would also be a great choice to have at a St. Patrick's Day party since it's green from the pistachio pudding.

Without further ado, here is the recipe.

Low Sugar Watergate Salad

Ingredients:
*2 (3.4 ounce) packages of sugar-free instant pistachio pudding mix
*14 oz. crushed pineapple in juice, slightly drained (almost a large 16 oz. can)
* 1 1/2 containers of sugar-free Cool Whip, thawed (8 oz. containers)
*3 light vanilla yogurts (6 oz. cups)

Directions:
* In a large bowl, mix together pudding mix, pineapple with juice and vanilla yogurt.  Fold in whipped topping.  Chill and enjoy!

  2. Looks good, I think this sounds a lot better than many deserts out there. My sis bakes some great low cal deserts too. This looks really simple!

    1. Oh yeah, it's so easy! All you have to do is pour the ingredients in and stir them up.

  3. I don't know if this counts as a dessert, but I often make smoothies with unsweetened soy yogurt, frozen fruit and stevia. And then of course there's blending up frozen bananas - some say they're "just like ice cream!", but really they're just like blended up frozen bananas. But that's a really good/refreshing thing if you're fond of bananas. :)

    1. I haven't ever had frozen bananas and bananas are my favorite kind of fruit, so I'm going to change it up and bit and give them a try!
