1 packet (1 oz.) Sugar Free Vanilla Jell-O
1 cup lowfat buttermilk
9 small apples (About 6 oz. each), core removed and chopped
(We used Pink Lady apples.)
15 Snickers Minis, cut into 4 pieces each
2 Containers (8 oz. each) Zero Sugar Cool Whip
6 Tbsp. Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
(We used Smucker's Sundae Syrup Sugar Free caramel.)
This is what we refer to as a "challenge" recipe. That's when someone sends us a recipe they love, but it's crazy high in fat, sugar or calories, and they want us to make a healthier option.
The original version of this recipe is from ThatMidwesternMom, and she's famous for making "Minnesota Salads That Aren't Really Salads." The original version had 37 grams of sugar, and we cut that almost in half to 20 grams.
The only things healthy about this "salad" are the apples, but it's a reasonable dessert if you limit yourself to a single serving. It's also a better alternative for potlucks because it doesn't taste like you've left anything out.
1. Pour the Jell-O and buttermilk into a LARGE mixing bowl and whisk together.
2. Remove the cores and chop up the apples into bite-sized pieces. Then stir them together into the Jell-O pudding mixture, so they get coated.
3. Chop the Snickers Minis into 4 or more pieces each, then mix them in with the apples.
4. Fold in the Cool Whip. Then drizzle the caramel sauce over everything and mix it all together.
5. Each serving is a full cup. Drizzle a little caramel sauce over the top and serve. You can cover it and store it in the refrigerator for up to two days.
Yield: 11 Servings, 1 Full Cup Each
