Unwicked Waffle Cones - Diet Recipe

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

You'll love this light & fruity diet treat!

This light, low fat recipe makes four very generous servings.

- Making use of fruit gives us a serving from the healthy Fruit Group.

- Making use of the low fat and non-fat ingredients serves to keep this recipe low in caloric content.

We strive to make our recipes amendable so that you can personalize them so that they contain the foods that you enjoy to eat. Such as the case with this diet recipe. If you don't like pineapple - and some people don't, then you can opt for the suggestions we've mentioned in our recipe instructions. Coconut tends to be another ingredient that the individual either loves or strongly dislikes.

The mixture that goes into the waffle cone can be prepared in advanced and transferred to the cones  just before serving. This will ensure that the cones remain crunchy.

If the mixture is allowed to sit inside the cones, it will absorb the moisture and go soggy. Yet another reason to take care in sealing your unused cones in a container - to keep the moisture out and to keep your cones crunchy.

As to the cream cheese, we're not a big fan of non-fat or low fat cream cheese at this writing. Therefore, is you prefer, use regular whipped cream cheese which contains about 1/3 less calories than when in its solid form.

At times, even if you're not a fan of non-fat and reduced fat products, the flavor will be unnoticeable OR lessened when used as an ingredient in the recipe rather than consumed separately.

Ingredients for Low Calorie Waffle Cones

1 box of waffle cones (about 50 calories per cone)

1 three-ounce package of nonfat cream cheese or 3 ounces of whipped cream cheese

4-6 packages of sugar substitute (or use a few spoons of granulated sugar, light brown or dark brown sugar)

1 small can of drained pineapple tidbits (crushed will also work great)

1 Tablespoon of the pineapple juice

1 small container of non-fat whipped topping

How to Prepare This Diet Recipe

Beat cream cheese with the pineapple juice; stir in pineapple, add sweetener. Fold in whipped topping.

Chill, then fill waffle cones.

You can also mix up the choice of fruit. Mandarin oranges, cherries, canned peaches, fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and bananas all work very well with this luscious recipe.

Each cone contains approximately 150 calories. Enjoy!
