Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Triple Berry Cobbler
(196 calories | *8 WW Freestyle SmartPoints)
This delicious triple berry cobbler is a smaller, slimmed down version of The Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler Recipe, which looks absolutely luscious, but is a little too indulgent when you’re trying to watch your weight.
It caught my eye several month’s back when I saw her make it on The Food Network, because it was so easy and different from any other cobbler recipe I’d ever seen or tried.
Just a simple batter of 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup self-rising flour and 1/2 cup melted butter stirred together, poured into a baking dish and topped with 2 cups blackberries and another 1/4 cup sugar and baked till golden.
I completely forgot about this luscious sounding dessert until the other day when I was thumbing through a little paperback community cookbook from my mom and came across a similar recipe – 1 can ready to use fruit topping, 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup self-rising flour and 1/4 cup butter – called Million Dollar Cobbler.
The Skinny on Triple Berry Cobbler
I decided to make my own healthy skinny version of berry cobbler for dessert last night, since I had everything I needed on hand and had a hankering for a comforting sweet treat.
I cut the recipe in half since there were only going to be three of us and the whole recipe serves 8.
Leftover dessert is a danger to be avoided as much as possible when you lack dietary willpower.
To lighten the recipe, I substituted skim milk for whole milk and nonfat Greek yogurt for half the butter called for in the original recipe.
I also used just 1/2 cup of sugar, dividing it between the batter and topping. And I used 1-1/3 cups of a frozen three berry combination that I had in the freezer (raspberries, blueberries and marionberries) to up the fruit-to-batter ratio a bit.
This cobbler is wonderful on it’s own or with a dollop of light whipped cream, ice cream or frozen yogurt.
It also makes enough for 5 servings and has just 196 calories and *5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus value per serving.
This is now *8 WW Freestyle SmartPoints following the new Weight Watchers plan for 2018.
We all enjoyed it. This recipe is definitely getting added to my “make again soon” file.
I love easy simple recipes like this that can be modified in so many ways.
I can imagine making this with chopped peaches or a combination of peaches and berries too.
