Game Day Strawberry Cheesecake Shots

Strawberry Cheese Cake Shots, Strawberry Cheese Cake, dessert, weight watchers

The big Game Day is soon to be upon us! I was really more interested in deflate gate  than anything cause you know I love me some good scandalous news but since the NFL isn’t going to do anything about the Patriots cheating I guess I’ll settle for getting excited about the snacks! We’ve been invited to so many SuperBowl parties and  the menu’s look absolutely delicious. There’s just one problem though. I’m currently doing Weight Watchers and I’m pretty sure about 90% of what will be served at these parties will use up all my points in one bite.  I mean I could go to the party and just eat to my hearts content but my goal is to hit the 160’s by mid-February so I really need to stay the course. Since I was asked to bring  dessert to a party I decided I’d make something tasty and healthy that I could enjoy as well everyone else.

I found this recipe on Weight Watchers and was inspired to make it a little healthier by adding more power foods and substituting low-fat ingredients for ones that were fat-free.  I whipped these up for my husband to sample since he always has a late night sweet tooth and I’d rather him eat something like this rather than going to grab a pastry from somewhere. I put his in a parfait glass since I knew he’d probably devour several shots. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s a No Bake Strawberry Cheese Cake so they’re super easy to make and only 2WW points per serving if served in a shot glass!

    I don’t like the Patriots…they should be booted lol. That snack looks so amazing. I already know I would end up eating several of them which might defeat the purpose lol. This is a great anytime snack or substitute desert too.
