Low-Point Berry Parfait

Yum
When I was growing up, my mom used to take me to our local Dairy Queen and I would order a "Jack and Jill" sundae. Everybody in my small town knew that a Jack and Jill sundae consisted of melted marshmallow and chocolate. When I moved away many years later, I was at a Dairy Queen and excitedly went up to the counter and ordered a Jack and Jill sundae, only to get one bewildered expression looking back at me. I guess the names come and go but the memory of Mom taking me to the Dairy Queen for my "Jack and Jill" sundae will remain forever! xo 
This sundae, although not exactly the same, reminded me of what I used to order, only healthier. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!


Low-Point Berry Parfait
Ingredients:
(This recipe is for one serving only. Make as many as you need) :)
- 2 Tbs marshmallow fluff
- 1 tsp. Hershey's sugar-free chocolate syrup
- 2 Tbs cool whip lite
- Berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, or any kind you like)
Add teaspoon of chocolate syrup to marshmallow fluff. Microwave for a few seconds and stir, blending well. Add a little spoonful to the bottom of a skinny glass (such as a champagne flute). Add a few berries and then a small dollop of cool whip. Repeat with marshmallow fluff mixture, berries and then cool whip. Add a berry or two on top and wa-la, a wonderful light and refreshing dessert for less than 2 points. If you'd like a printer-friendly recipe for this recipe, Click Here.
