Brownie in a cup....

A single serving size is perfect...


That way I'm not tempted by a whole pan of brownies calling my name (yes, they really do know my name!) The only ingredients are No Pudge Brownie mix and fat-free yogurt (fat-free Cool Whip optional). I always use the 1-point containers of Weight Watchers yogurt - they taste fantastic and they have a great variety of flavors!


Put 2 tablespoons of No Pudge and 1 tablespon of yogurt into a small serving dish or cup. (The box calls for fat-free vanilla, but I have to tell you that I use whatever flavor I have in the fridge [in this case Boston Cream Pie] and they turn out great no matter what flavor I use!)


Blend the brownie mix and yogurt....


... and microwave for 1 minute...



Top with fat free whipped topping and you have a great 2 point* brownie dessert!!!

* The No Pudge brownie mix is 2 points. The yogurt is 1 point for the whole container, and since this recipe only calls for 1 tablespoon, I don't add any points for it. But if you round up your points, consider it a 3 point dessert!!
The No Pudge website has lots of recipes, so definitely check them out!
And be sure to stop by My Little Cottage in the Making on Wednesday for Joanne's "Better Me" post! I think Joanne's first "Better Me" post was the gentle nudge (kick in the pants) that I needed to get back on track! I was even able to list another weight loss in my weekly sidebar tracker today. So thanks, Joanne!

Oh yum! I didn't even know you could make these one brownie at a time. What a great idea. I've never had these but I have heard they are really good. I now have to track them down so I can try these. Nothing better then a fresh warm brownie. One could even add a few nuts for a bit of protein and good fats. Of course counting them though. LOL

Hugs,
Joanne

Sounds so yummy; I might try it when I finish off the diet soda cake (and that won't take long). I wish someone would give me a kick in the pants to pick back up the WW program!

I've never seen the No Pudge brand. What a witty name! I'm going to have to look for those. What a great idea to have an individual cup of fudge. I am such a chocoholic, I'd eat the whole batch if it was in front of me! Thanks for sharing this. laurie

That looks very yummy and the points are good too. I haven't heard of that mix. Is it WWs? I'll have to take a look and see if we have it here.
Thats a great idea.

This looks so yummy. I will have to try it. I have heard the yogurt itself if quite nice.
