Tropical Pineapple Orange Delight (2 Points Plus)

Tropical ParfaitTray of Parfaits

If you break the ingredients down individually for this dessert, then they are only 1 Points Plus each.  But when you punch into the Weightwatchers recipe calculator it makes them 2 Points Plus each because it then calculates the fruit as an ingredient.  The fruit when eaten on it’s own has a zero points value!!!!!!

Makes 12 mini desserts

  • 1 (20oz)  Can Crushed Pineapple with Juice
  • 1 (3oz) Box Sugar Free Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 1 Can Mandarin Oranges, drained
  • 1 (8oz) container of Cool Whip (or packet of Dream Whip and 1/2 cup Fat Free Milk)
  • 12 Marachino Cherries for garnish

Cut up the mandarin oranges into small bite size pieces.

Mix the orange pieces, pineapple, pineapple juice and instant pudding mix together.

Gently fold in the whipped topping.

Spoon into small dessert dishes over the cake.

Garnish with a marachino cherry on trop.

Can be served immediately or refrigerate for an hour or so.

You can also make these by placing a 1″ cube of pound cake or angel food cake in the dish and then topping with pudding mixture.

    This was really yummy and just enough in the little footed dishes as it was rich. I used a 1/2 slice of kiwi for garnish & just a touch of toasted coconut. – How Posh!

    • Glad you enjoyed. I really like the small dessert dishes. You can make a guest worthy dessert and keep the calories in check!!! Sometimes I make 2 or 3 types, that way those with a really sweet tooth can try another! I have a great recipe for a chocolate hazelnut mousse (using Nutella) that is perfect for those little dishes. I must make them soon and share!!!
