I’ve been a Weight Watcher off and on for many years. Right now I’m back on. Whenever I get serious about watching what I eat my husband is thrilled. No…..not because I’ll loose weight……but because I get back to cooking more. Now don’t get me wrong, I cook quite a bit normally but when I’m on Weight Watcher’s I definitely cook a lot more.
However…….this recipe has absolutely no cooking involved. I first started making this at least 25 years ago and I still love it. It funny but I don’t like cottage cheese at all and certainly not with pineapple on it. However, I love this. My Mother ate cottage cheese with pineapple on it for lunch almost every single day for lunch.
This recipe was originally called “Easy Salad”. Why? I have no idea. I love to have it for breakfast or desert. All I can say is…….Try it! You’ll like it!
First up, gather all your ingredients.
20 oz. Canned Crushed Pineapple
8 oz. Fat Free Whipped Topping (like Cool Whip)
16 oz. Fat Free Cottage Cheese
1 pkg. Sugar-free Strawberry Jell-O
Drain the pineapple. Try to get as much moisture out as you can by squeezing it in a colander.
Dump everything in to a mixing bowl.
Mix it all together until it’s a pretty pink.
I use an ice cream scoop to put 2 scoops in every cup (their plastic, that way I can just toss them when after I gobble up what’s inside).
This recipe makes 8 perfect size servings.
I cover them with plastic wrap.
Then pop them in the refrigerator to get nice and cold.
According to my unofficial calculations this recipe makes 8 servings and is 2 points each.
