Some of you may think that there shouldn’t be desserts on a “healthy” recipe blog. But I disagree. Eating healthy is about moderation and making the right choices. I don’t recommend this dessert for a weekly event, but it’s one of my favorite things to make for our annual Christmas party. For eight servings, it’s around 300 calories and less than a gram of fat per serving, there is a fair amount of sugar…but, it’s a dessert and not to be eaten daily! Compared that to the Olive Garden version which will cost you 1,000 calories per serving!
1 graham cracker pie crust
