This is a great little recipe I found in one of those little Betty Crocker books a few years ago called “Simple and Healthy Recipes”. This was one of their quick low fat dessert recipes. You can cut back on the sugar in it also by using sugar free vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix and I don’t think you sacrifice taste.
You can make this up to a day ahead… this makes for a terrific dessert or snack. By using the orange juice it has a great refreshing taste. I used fresh mandarin oranges in the jar from the refrigerator section of the produce department of the supermarket.... much better than canned.
The recipe makes 4 servings (1/2 cup each)…. As the recipe is written, the Total Fat is listed as 2.5 g and 230 Calories per serving.
Serving sizes are not always realistic... the smaller cup is the 1/2 cup serving... keep in mind I piled mandarin oranges on top and granola ... the serving in the glass.... was about 3/4 cup. You can stretch it a bit by filling the glass half full then put a layer of granola then add the 2nd half into the glass.
You have more than enough granola with one bar for 4 servings.... if you put the layer in the middle, use two bars.
It really tastes so good... like a creamsicle!
