Skinny Summer Dessert: "Deconstructed" Chocolate Strawberry Pie

So, I mentioned that I'm on a summer torture diet plan.  It's really not that bad.  I eat pretty clean already...I've just cut out the snacks (and I'm a snacking girl).  My husband is also eating better, and my parents are both on Weight Watchers right now.  All of these circumstances combined, makes for a grumpy bunch (just kidding!) - the circumstances definitely make "food get-togethers" challenging.
We must have a dessert.  Hence, this tasty treat made it's way into our lives ... to stay!  Everyone was smiling after tasting this sweet treat!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!


Skinny Chocolate Strawberry "Pie"
Serves 6

2 boxes of sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding
skim milk (according to package instructions)
reduced fat graham crackers, or pie crust (crumbled)
15-20 sliced strawberries
fat-free Cool Whip

1.  Prepare the pudding using skim milk according to package directions.  Allow to set in the refrigerator.
2.  Get 6 glasses and crumble one graham cracker in the bottom of each glass. 
3.  Place one cup of pudding on the crackers.
4.  Top the pudding with 1/2 c. - 1 c. sliced strawberries
5.  Add Cool Whip and enjoy!

Thanks for reading! xo

Looks delish! I'm all for skinny desserts that taste good - why add fat if you don't have to! :)
