i found the following at hungry-girl.com, but it's from aimee's adventures.

Fluff-tastic Frozen Peanut Butter Cups


We found this awesome recipe on the Aimee's Adventures site. Aimee has tons of great recipes! These frozen peanut butter treats are almost too good to be true. YOU MUST TRY THEM!

1 (8 oz.) Container Fat Free Cool Whip
1/3 Cup Reduced Fat Creamy (or Chunky) Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Hershey's Light Chocolate Syrup

Line a 12 cupcake pan with cupcake holders (foil ones work best). Combine 1 Cup of Cool Whip and the peanut butter, with a whisk. Fold in remaining Cool Whip. Divide the mixture into the liners evenly (approx. 2 1/2 tablespoons each). Top each cup with a dollop of chocolate syrup. Freeze.

Serves: 12
Per Peanut Butter Cup: 73 Calories; 2g Fat, 2g Protein; 10 carbs, Fiber: 0g

I love anything with a mushroom! Thanks!

toast whole grain bread (or any low fat bread of your choice) in a pan with some pam.

sautee a medium/large portabella cap with fat free balsamic vinaigrette, or even just balsamic vinegar, for a few minutes.

put on the bread with thinly sliced red onion, cucumbers, fat free feta (it DOES exist, yes!) and enjoy! They are so tasty. Even skipping the mushroom cap is fine, when you add extra cucumbers, and perhaps some red peppers!

Ugh, hummus on the side with some veggies to dip is to die for.

It's also extremely cheap and easy to make at home! All you need is a can of garbanzo beans, a tbl spoon of light olive oil, a tbl spoon tahini paste if you want, maybe a small red pepper, put in a food processor, and voila! warm up some pita, and we're in business!

banana and peanut butter in a smoothie with fat free frozen yogurt is simply divine! Seems like we love peanut butter and bananas on this forum!

  • lowfat yogurt & granola
  • plain rice cakes with natural peanut butter - way less sugar than skippy or jiffy and taste the same to me
  • celery, carrots and cucumber with hummus (afternoon snack)
  • fruit bowl (morning snack)
  • Lots of water with lemon
