I’m not sure where the time went, but it’s been more than a month since I hosted the Chocolate Raspberry Mini VitaCake ‘Recipe’ Contest!
Whew! Time is flying.
Anyway, I’m not going to hold up the announcement any further with my blabbering. Vitalicious LOVED everyone’s submissions and had a hard time picking a winner. In the end in came down to uniqueness and the pears took it home.
Winner: Paula’s “I Don’t Have a Name for This” Pear Yummy Goodness!
I don’t really have a name for it, but this is how I like to have it for dessert now and again, and I usually have these items on hand:
In a small pan I put a can of sliced pears (canned in pear juice) add about 1/2 the juice to the pan, add 2 tablespoons of raspberry low-sugar jelly or preserves or strawberry (if you don’t have raspberry). Add a teaspoon of cinnamon and simmer until the jelly/preserves have melted and the juice is slightly thicker. Heat 1 Chocolate Raspberry Mini VitaCake in a bowl in the microwave as directed on package. Pour 1/2 the pear mixture over the VitaCake and enjoy. Don’t forget to make one for your loved one for the other half of the pear yummy goodness!
According to Vitalicious, which calculated the nutritional information, Paula’s dessert is 97 calories, with 1 g fat, 25 g carbs, 6 g fiber, and 2 g protein.
Paula wins 48 Chocolate Raspberry Mini VitaCakes!
But that’s not all! <– said in my game show voice.
We have 3 runners-up each winning a 24 pack of Chocolate Raspberry Mini VitaCakes!

I’m really excited about finally entering one of your contests! This is one of my favorite ways to eat the chocolate vita-cakes but I think it will taste even better with the chocolate raspberry vita-cake. Here’s what I do: I take mandarin oranges without any added sugar and add them to a small bowl of raspberries. I do add some of the juice depending on how many raspberries I use. I eyeball this and use about equal amounts of oranges and raspberries. Then I take about a teaspoon of orange marmalade and spread that over the vita-cake. Then I take about 1-2 tablespoons of lite cool-whip and add a drop of rum extract. I mix this together until its fully incorporated. I take about 2 tablespoons of the orange and raspberry mixture and spoon it over the marmalade covered vita-cake and then top it off with the cool whip mixture. Sometimes if I have it in the house I’ll add a layer of the strawberry laughing cow cheese before I add the cool whip and then sprinkle some crushed graham cracker crumbs on top or a few more berries and oranges. It looks really pretty if it’s served in a small clear glass.

I eat 2-3 Vitatops daily — so yes, I am obsessed. This is my favorite way to eat it and would be awesome with the raspberry mini vitacake for a snack:
1 Raspberry VitaCake toasted
1/2 cup Fage Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons chia seeds
2-3 teaspoons dark cocoa powder
Put all ingredients in a bowl except for VitaCake and mix well
Put toasted VitaCake on top and break up, mixing into yogurt
Voila! Amazing snack!!
