Summer is now right around the corner, do you have any plans yet? Last month I began to plan out our summer vacation. I really want to get away somewhere on a beach, it’s just such a relaxing place and like they say “En el mar la vida es mas sabrosa…” Which means life is so much better by the sea.
I’ve decided to start making changes in the way I eat because I want to feel and be healthy, not just this summer but all year long. I have always heard how great Weight Watchers® is at helping others make the change, but now I am actually seeing the results myself. For the past month, I’ve been preparing delicious recipes and following tips from their Facebook WW Market, it’s almost hard to believe some of the recipes are actually healthy enough to eat. I love programs where I can make healthy changes without giving up the type of food I enjoy because y’all I have a huge sweet tooth! The New SmartPoints system delivers much more than calorie counting, giving you the flexibility to eat real food and still lose weight.
One item that always gets me in trouble is ice cream. I love to snack on frozen treats but little did I know that my local HEB carries Weight Watchers® Ice Cream Novelties, which offer the same tasty treats I crave all under 100 calories! Each one is individually wrapped and offers portion control, best of all is they have lower SmartPoints value than regular and other “diet” frozen novelties ranging from 3-5 SmartPointsTM each. I say indulge, guilt-free is the way to be!
Then there are those Friday movie nights with the kids where popcorn is a must, Weight Watchers® Endorsed Jolly Time Pop Corn is the first to ever receive the Good Housekeeping seal of approval for a food brand. It offers portion control in 100 calorie packs and only 3 SmartPointsTM value, making them the perfect item to snack on while watching your favorite flicks.
And what about that urge to eat something after lunch? Weight Watchers® String Cheese has less fat than regular cheese, these individually wrapped items also offer portion control and are made with real milk. I used the Weight Watchers® Cream Cheese to prepare these mini key lime cheesecakes but they also offer Shredded Cheese Blends and Cheese Slices when craving quesadillas or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Guilt-Free Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes
- 1 (8oz) Weight Watchers® Fat-Free Cream Cheese
- juice of 3 limes
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 (8oz) tub of whipped topping
- 2 graham crackers, crumbs
- 1/2 stick melted butter
In a bowl, mix fresh lime juice, softened cream cheese, and sugar with hand mixer until well blended.
Fold in whipped topping until mixed in. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs along with melted butter.
Line your muffin pan and place a small amount of the graham cracker crumb mixture into each one, press and fill with cheesecake mixture. Place in freezer for 1 hour. Remove from freezer and remove liners, top with whipped topping and garnish with a slice of lime.
Serve and enjoy!
