Tips for Making Weight Watchers Cranberry Vanilla Mini Trifles
- This recipe looks especially fun served in wine glasses, but other glasses or bowls work equally well. Clear plastic wine glasses are available on Amazon or at most party stores.

- We used Splenda in this recipe. Other sweeteners can be used, but remember to adjust points accordingly.
