When I made this recipe, I spread out the dough too thinly. The result is tasty, but crispier than I wanted. So, please pay attention to my instructions and not the pictures!
I was shocked by how many Weight Watchers points regular gummy bears are: 1 point for 3 of those little sugar bombs?? NNOOO!!!!
But, here’s a way around that. I adapted the following from https://elanaspantry.com/gummy-bears/
NOTE: the images here are from when I used other diet juices.
This is based on a New York Times cooking recipe from 1975. The adjustments I made were using significantly lighter ingredients, and adding a lot more blueberries.
This recipe was made possible by Swerve, a 0 calorie sugar substitute that actually tastes like sugar, with no aftertaste.
I’ve avoided making sweet things since starting WW because I haven’t been able to find a good sugar substitute, until now. I’m completely done with Stevia. I have a giant bag, and I think I’m going to dump it out (and recycle the bag, of course).
When I mixed it, I tasted the batter, and it tasted…like muffin batter! I seriously would not have known the difference between this, and muffins I made previously with regular sugar and regular butter.
Next came the blueberry bombardment. I used 3 cups of blueberries, when even blueberry heavy recipes normally call for 2.
This bowl of goodness isn’t just a looker: you can legitimately claim that it’s good for you! The points change depending on how much honey you add. I did consider using Swerve, that little bit of witchcraft I recently discovered, but I settled on a recipe that anyone could make.
After making it with 2 teaspoons of honey, I find it I like it better with 4. This changes the point value from 0 to 1, and 1 point is never a bad thing.
@dunniedad: a sherbet has a milk component. I’ve made a crazy amount of ice creams and gelatos – pre WW – but this is the first frozen treat I don’t have to feel guilty about eating.
