Weight Watchers Lemon Pie in a Jar

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, March 28, 2022

It's Monday and time for a lower calorie recipe.  My month of lemon recipes is winding down, only three more days.  It's been fun posting these  recipes, I think I could post them for a year I have so many.

This lemon pie in a jar is an easy no-bake dessert that won't cost you a lot of calories.  I make it with crushed graham crackers, but you can also make it by putting a vanilla wafer in the bottom of the jar and layering pudding and then another vanilla wafer in the middle.


2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 package fat free, sugar free lemon pudding mix
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup crushed graham crackers or 8 reduced fat vanilla wafers
6 tablespoons whipped cream or Cool Whip

6 small sauce jars


In a medium bowl, beat the nonfat Greek yogurt with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.

Add the lemon pudding mix and lemon juice and beat to combine.

Prepare the jars by placing crushed graham crackers or a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each jar. Top with 1/3 cup yogurt mixture and one tablespoon whipped cream or Cool Whip.

Crush remaining graham crackers or two vanilla wafers and top each lemon pie with cookie crumbles.

Makes 6 jars

Weight Watchers Lemony, Puckery, Yummy Pound Cake

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, March 14, 2022

It's Monday, and we always start the week eating lower calories, so I wanted a healthy lemon cake recipe to share and there are a plethora of Weight Watcher ones to choose from that are low in calories and maximum in flavor.  I have a confession, I haven't made this.  I make the two ingredient Weight Watcher cake with a box of lemon cake mix and a can of diet lemon soda, which is very good and I think with WW they consider it to be 0 points for one piece.

However, my mother had the best recipe from the 70's for a lemon pound cake made with a cake mix and lemon pudding, everybody loved her cake and I've made it countless times, so when I found this recipe, I was intrigued because it's basically the same asmother's recipe, except you are swapping out greek yogurt for the 3/4 cup of oil she used.  I'm betting that this cake is a winner, that greek yogurt is going to make it really moist.  So, this is on my short list to make this week, because it just is...

1 box of lemon cαke mix
1 smαll box of Instant sugαr free lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
¾ cup nonfαt plain Greek yogurt, or if you want this really lemony, use lemon Greek yogurt
¾ cup of lemon juice
¼ cup of wαter

This would be good with just a dusting of powdered sugar, but if you don't mind the calories in a glaze, here you go....

Vanilla Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheαt oven to 350 degrees

Sprαy the inside of α cαke pαn or Bundt pαn with α no point non-stick sprαy

Combine the pudding mix, cαke mix, yogurt, wαter, αnd ¾ cup of lemon juice in α lαrge bowl

Whisk until combined but don’t overbeαt the mix

Pour into your pαn αnd bαke αccording to cαke mix box instructions.  Typically a Bundt cake takes about 50-60 minutes for a toothpick to come out clean, but I would check it at 40-45 minutes.  I've baked so much, my nose always alerts me when a cake is done, but don't do what I do, check your cake!

To mαke the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, milk, lemon juice and vanilla extract and whisk until combined and the right consistency to drizzle.

Drizzle icing over the cαke αfter it hαs cooled completely.

I don't have the nutritional information for this, maybe someone can put it through WW nutritional app and let us know the points.

Nordic Ware makes this Bundt pan with the unusual shape in my picture.  Nice, huh.  I've always wanted to buy it, just never did, but maybe the time is right.  Maybe for you, too 😉
