Low-Fat Dessert - Grape Salad


Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen is getting Comfy In Her Jeans this month! She has a dessert that your taste buds and jeans will enjoy!


She said "I tried this amazing dessert for the first time at a recent family gathering. I took my first bite with a bit of caution because I didn’t really know what it was…to my surprise it was one of the most delicious treats I have ever tasted!!!!! In this recipe, I scaled down the calories and used low-fat sour cream and lite cream cheese. If the thought of putting sour cream over grapes makes you question this recipe…think of old-fashioned cheesecake. Trust me you are going to love this one….I just made this for guests at our house and we all had seconds around the table!!!!! I am SOOOO excited for you to try this…..it is DEVINE! (no pun intended! haha)"


Red and Green Seedless Grapes, Low-Fat Cream Cheese, Lite Sour Cream, Sugar, Brown Sugar, Vanilla, Chopped Pecans

In a medium bowl add cream cheese, sour cream, white sugar, and vanilla


Beat with mixer until well combined and smooth



Remove grapes from stems and rinse...aren't these beautiful?! MMmmm!!!!!


Combine brown sugar with chopped pecans


Place over top of grapes (you may also place on the side if you desire) Note: While I was at the store I looked at the calories on the 1/2 Splenda 1/2 brown sugar box and regular brown sugar has less calories.

Stir cream cheese mixture with the grapes and place in a serving dish


Low-Fat Dessert - Grape Salad

1 ½ lbs green seedless grapes
1 ½ lbs red seedless grapes
8 oz lite sour cream
8 oz low-fat cream cheese
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Topping
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup chopped pecans


Remove stems from grapes and rinse. Beat sour cream, cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla with mixer. Stir grapes into the mixture and place in a serving dish. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over top.

Shellbells - I don't think I could have gotten a more encouraging comment today!!! To know that I have a new partner in Christ laboring to spread God's truth makes me want to shout out loud - woooohoooo!!!

Use your talents for his glory - till the whole world hears!!!

Much Love,
Courtney

I have a friend who makes this all the time and I have recently been taking it to potlucks or serving it to guests. Everybody loves it and asks for the recipe. Nobody I've made it for has ever heard of it before--so I'm so surprised to see it posted here!

LOVE this. Our friend makes this as his speciality. Everytime we have a gathering we assign him the grape salad! :)

Yes! I eat something similar that is equally divine and gets an equal amount of strange stares... vanilla yogurt with grapes and topped with granola. Yum! I'm going to try this recipe as it looks even more delicious.
Thanks!!

Holy Cow! this looks awesome! I'm thinking I might just eat the whole bowl and it might defeat my purpose for making it...but we'll see!

I have been making Grape Salad for years after a friend made it for a ladies' get together at our church and I had to get the recipe from her. It's so yummy! Love it!

My step-mom made that at Christmas last year and I couldn't stop eating it. I was like you, though...cautious until after the first bite. Made it for small group after that and there was NOTHING left to take home! Made me sad, but proud at the same time. : )

I just posted a link on my blog this past week for OATMEAL CHEESECAKE BANANA SPLIT. Wow, they are similar. I'm thinking I will love the grape version as well, especially during the summer months. The banana version makes a great breakfast treat.
blessings,
Toni

I make this all the time without the brown sugar/pecan topping. Looking forward to trying it this way soon!

Looking forward to trying it. Need to reevaluate my cooking priorities and help the family eat for health and wellness first and foremost. They like grapes, so this could be right up our alley. Thanks for sharing!
