I am looking for a pineapple dessert recipe. It was a weight watcher's recipe years ago. Had plain gelatin, pineapple and I think powdered milk. I am diabetic and would love to have it again.
Here is another pineapple dessert that is fine for diabetic meals, or anyone on low fat, low calorie or low cholesterol diet.
1 box of ONE-STEP angelfood cake mix
1 20oz can crushed pineapple.
Mix the dry cake mix with the undrained pineapple.
Put in 9 X 13 pan that has been sprayed with PAM, Bake 30 mins at 350 degree.
Very good topped with thawed whipped topping or ice cream.
Hi, My husband has been a diabetic for over a decade. He is not allowed to have fruit (sugar content) or starches. Our daily check is only 100. I don't think fruit, sugar and starch recipes are the way to go for diabetics. They need salads, veggies and lean meats. We love them and need to support them by dieting with them. When out, we opt for conversation and pass on the lovely desserts offered. It may sound difficult, but it would be worse to live without by beloved husband.
Check out allrecipes.com. They have a spot in there of nothing but weight watchers recipes.
I have a recipe for Weight Watchers but I'm not sure if it is good for a diabetic. It uses Fat Free Cool Whip, Sugarless White Chocolate Pudding, 1 can of crushed pineapples and 1-2 small cans of Mandarian Oranges. My kids love it and any time I make it for a special occasion, people always ask for the recipe. Good Luck.
Pudding and Pie
1 pkg. gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup boiling water
1/3 cup dry milk
3 or 4 pkgs. sweet & Low or Splenda
1 small cap vanilla
1 small can crushed pineapple
5 ice cubes
Blend gelatin and cold water to mix; add
boiling water and blend until frothy. Add
sweetner, dry milk, and vanilla. Blend. Add
crushed pineapple. Add ice cubes 1 at a time.
Blend on low for a few minutes. Eat anytime.
For cheese pie
Add 1/4 c. cottage cheese or Ricotta (Breakfast)
or 2/3 c. cottage cheese or Ricotta (Lunch)
I got this receipe back in the early 70's and use it all the time. If you need some old recipes let me know.
I'm diabetic as well. My dietician told me I can eat canned fruit, but only 1/2 a cup, as one serving. I'm to drain all juices off of them by pouring into a colander & rinsing the remaining juices off with water. Drain well & then I am able to use the fruit. Not all diabetics are alike. Some can eat foods that other diabetics can't. If a recipe sounds too good to be true, don't take any chances with it. Nothing is as important as your health. The dietician also stressed having a piece of small fresh fruit over canned fruits, if at all possible. You need the fiber of the fresh fruit more. A small portion (1/2 cup) of fresh fruit salad isn't all that bad. Everything in moderation.
I don't know if this is WW's.
1 small ricotta cheese, 15oz
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 envelope gelatin
1 sweet & low
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix all well. Pour into pie pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cool, then refrigerate. Top with sprinkles of cinnamon.
