I have a friend who is diabetic, and has also had weight loss surgery, so he has to be very careful of what he eats. Here are a couple of his favorite recipes.

PINK JELLO SALAD

1 8OZ COOLWHIP
1 SM SUGAR FREE STRAWBERRY JELLO
1 SM COTTAGE CHEESE
1 CAN FRUIT COCKTAIL (LIGHT)
ABOUT Ĺ CUP CHOPPED PECANS (OPTIONAL)

DRAIN FRUIT COCKTAIL AND COTTAGE CHEESE (YOU CAN DO THEM TOGETHER)
IN A LARGE BOWL, MIX ALL INGREDIENTS TOGETHER AND CHILL.
*****************


5 MINUTE NO BAKE CHEESECAKE

**THIS IS A BLENDER RECIPE**

8 OZ FATFREE CREAM CHEESE
12 OZ SKIM MILK
13 1 BOX SUGAR-FREE JELLO PUDDING (IíVE USED LEMON AND VANILLA)
1 GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST* SEE BELOW

ADD MILK TO BLENDER AND ADD CREAM CHEESE. RUN THE BLENDER FOR A MINUTE OR SO TILL ALL OF THE CREAM CHEESE HAS LIQUIFIED. THEN POUT IN THE INSTANT PUDDING MIX AND RUNN FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS OR TILL MIXED WELL. POUR THE MIXTURE INTO YOUR PIECRUST AND CHILL. THIS IS SET UP IN 5 MINUTES BUT IS EVEN BETTER IF REFRIGERATED FOR A FEW HOURS.


SUGAR FREE GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST

1 CUP GRAHAM CRACKER CRUMBS
1/3 CUP SLPENDA
3 T MARGARINE

COMBINE CRUMBS AND SPLENDA IN A BOWL. MELT MARGARINE IN MICROWAVE. MAKE A WELL IN THE CRUMB MIXTURE. POUR THE MARGARINE IN THE WELL AND BLEND WELL. PRESS INTO BOTTOM AND SIDES OF SPRINGFORM PAN OR PIE PAN.

Yikers, doesn't anyone notice the dangers in transfats (hydrogenated, partially or otherwise), especially for those at greater risk of really nasty endstage complications, like diabetics... ?

CoolWhip, do check the Ingredients list sometime. Margarine, generally wouldn't touch it with a bargepole but therre are now available transfat free margarines, or a healthful substitute can be easily made...

BTW, I've never seen FF Cream Cheese anywhere around here, what's holding it together? I'd love to know...
