1 ½ cup (20 oz.) of crushed pineapple with juice

6 apples-I prefer Royal Gala

1 box of fat free, sugar free, instant vanilla pudding mix (or butterscotch)

1 tub of low fat cool whip

Place pineapple in a large bowl.




Core and cut apples into small pieces, leave peel on.




As you cut the apples add them to the pineapple. The pineapple will prevent the apples from turning brown. Stir apples and pineapple well.



Sprinkle ½ of the pudding mix over fruit and mix very well, until all the dry pudding is incorporated. Add the other ½ and mix well.





Gently fold in ½ of the cool whip, stir gently, then fold in the other ½.





Place in a covered bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Here’s the great news girlfriends! One cup of Candy Apple Dessert contains:

75 calories

.5 grams of fat

2.3 grams of fiber

2.3 grams of protein

Enjoy a whole cup! Put it in a fancy bowl and eat it slowly, (I use a tiny dessert spoon) and savor every bite. It’s so yummy!
