Perfect for Memorial Day, this cool, creamy dessert from my mom Patsy's collection will complement your patriotic table.  As a bonus, it can be prepared in less than 10 minutes leaving you plenty of time to relax by the pool!



1 (8-ounce) package Philadelphia Fat Free Cream Cheese, softened

1 (8-ounce) container Daisy Light Sour Cream

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 (8-ounce) tub Cool Whip Lite Whipped Topping, thawed

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

8-inch Keebler Graham Ready Crust


Combine the first five ingredients with an electric mixer and pour into the graham cracker crust.  Refrigerate at least four hours.


Blueberry Topping

Mix 1 can of blueberry pie filling with 1 container fresh blueberries.  Refrigerate and generously spoon atop pie slices just before serving.  Also works well with strawberry pie filling and fresh strawberries.


Makes 8 servings.

Diabetes-Friendly Chicken Burrito Bowl

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
