“A TOH recipe that I got in an email. Described as light and refreshing dessert that's creamy and pretty with the tart raspberry sauce, no one will ever guess that it's fat-free. I've been trying to eat healthier so this seems to fit the bill. Finally got around to making this for family and it was enjoyed by all. Not terribly sweet but the raspberry sauce really set it off - pretty easy also. If you decide to try it hope you'll like it as much as we did.”
1 1/4 cups
