8th Grade Promotion After Party Help!?!

Question: 8th Grade Promotion After Party Help!!?
My daughter is promoting 8th grade, and we are having friends and family come over afterwards!. My daughter and husband are on Diets, so cake and ice cream is out of the question!. What are some ideas for fruit platters, or dishes!.
Please no comments like "She can eat cake just once" or "Let her be a kid" I will ignore you if you say that!. Thanks for all the help!. They can eat:
- Vegetables
-100 % fruit juice
-Sugar free Popsicles
-Sugar Free Sorbet
-Diet SodaWww@FoodAQ@Com

I'll try to help you guys out with some cool recipes, since I am on a diet, too!

Fat free flour tortillas
Matchstick carrots
Sliced bell peppers
99% fat free turkey breast
Fat free vegetable cream cheese
Shredded romain lettuce

Take a flour tortilla and spread with 1 tbsp of the fat free veggie cream cheese!. Put a few slices of turkey down, along with a thin layer of lettuce, peppers, and carrots!. Roll the tortilla into a wrap and cut into 3-4 pieces!. They can be some healthy turkey sandwhich pinwheels!.

Instead of "cake and ice cream" the traditional way you could do a naturally fat free angel food cake!. You can buy them at the grocery store!. Use fat free cool whip as "icing" and top with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc!. Serve with a choice of raspberry or strawberry sorbet!.

To make a punch, mix equal parts of cranberry juice and orange juice together and pour in some diet lemon lime soda to add a little carbonation!. You can float some of the sorbet on top, or cut up fruit and float it on top!.

These are things that people at the party wouldn't even have to know were healthy for them, and your daughter wouldn't feel strange asking people at her party to eat her diet food because it just seems like regular food!.

Hope any of these are helpful!Www@FoodAQ@Com

As of dessert dishes, you really can't miss out with a fruit tart!. It's healtier than cake, and it looks absolutely gorgous if you do it right!.

First, get premade PUFF pastry dough and form it into the tart pan!. Bake as directions state

After the puff pastry is baked and cooled, put a layer of vanilla custard at the bottom, and fill up the top with layers of fruit!. you can do one fruit, such as pear, or many like layers of strawberries, pears, and mandarin oranges!.

AFter your done layering the fruit, brush it with some agar agar, or plain gelatin to keep the fruit in place!.

If your looking for a drink, 100% juice fruit punch with mango sorbet is a great party drink!. It's healthy, the sorbet will melt into a frothy delicious top on the drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
