Coconut Cream Pie Without Guilt
8 oz container of fat-free light coconut creme pie yogurt
1 tablespoon light whipped cream
Top yogurt with whipped cream; enjoy!
I found a whole selection of fat-free light (sweetened with aspartame and fructose) yogurts in the grocery store with a creme pie theme: Lemon Chiffon, Key Lime, Coconut Creme and Banana Creme. They do satisfy a sweet tooth! And they can be counted as a fat-free, good-calcium serving of dairy.
The best part is that they are not that high in calories:
Serving size - 8 ounces

A cup of frozen yogurt would be double the calories (and who only eats a half cup of THAT?). And a real coconut cream pie would be much more - like 480 calories and 31 g fat per slice!!
