Undressed Skeleton — Low Calorie Watergate Salad Inspired By My Mom

Low Calorie Watergate Salad Inspired By My Mom

My favorite dessert growing up was Watergate salad. My mom used to make it at Easter and for summer barbecues. It reminds me of my favorite ice cream, pistachio almond. I made my moms recipe for Watergate salad last night, but with a couple swaps to reduce the calories, sugar and fat. 

My Ingredients Vs. My Moms

  • I used 1/4 cup sliced almonds instead of 1 cup. 
  • 2 cups sugar free cool whip instead of regular. 
  • 3/4 Cup fresh pineapples crushed instead of canned pineapples. 
  • 1/3 Cup sugar free fat free pistachio almond pudding mix instead of one package of regular pudding. 
  • 2 Cups Mini Marshmallows instead of 3 cups. 

I added the pineapples to the cool whip and combined them together. 

Next I stirred in the marshmallows.

Finally I added the almonds and pudding mix.

After combining I put the salad in the cooler for 1 hour to chill. 

This was the perfect dessert last night. It tasted no different than my moms recipe. I actually put all the salad back into the cool whip container and froze it. Then late last night I had my sweet tooth after golfing, so I took 1/4 cup of the  salad and put it in an ice scream cone. I felt like I was indulging in pistachio ice cream.
