Fit Friday...Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake Snack!

 

Welcome back to Fit Friday at Blue Skies Ahead!!  I know, I got you all excited about Fit Friday posts, did one...and then NONE since :)  I have continued my quest to get fit, and its going great!  I've dropped about 25 lbs and have 10 more to go before I reach my goal.  The hardest part is definitely waking up at 5 every morning (or earlier!) to get to the gym, but once I'm on the road I love it!

Today I wanted to share a really yummy snack I came up with the other day.  

I think snacking healthy is THE hardest thing for me when I am trying to lose weight.  I do great on my meals all throughout the day...but then dessert time hits and I want to eat that yummy stuff that everyone else is eating!  The obvious solution is to have EVERYONE in the house eating healthy stuff, and this quick, simple dessert was something the entire family enjoyed.

Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake Snack!


This is ridiculously simple.  I just made a box of sugar free, fat free Cheesecake pudding.  Then I added a few strawberries and a couple of graham crackers for the "crust" :)   The kids LOVED dipping the strawberries and graham crackers, and I loved feeling like I got a yummy treat like everybody else. Plus...cheesecake IS my all-time favorite, so this was a pretty good substitute :) 

For a 1/2 cup of pudding, 2 graham crackers, and a couple of strawberries you are just over 100 calories!

So please share...what are some yummy snacks you treat yourself and your family to when you are trying to GET FIT?! :)

Thank you for sharing this! I also have a hard time resisting desserts... and soda is my kryptonite! I will have to give this a try.
