1. Tropical Fruit Waffle Tacos

(1 waffle taco): 157 calories, 2.5g fat, 204mg sodium, 31.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 12.5g sugars, 3g protein

Ingredients

2 frozen low-fat waffles, thawed

1⁄4 cup canned pineapple chunks packed in juice, drained and chopped

1⁄4 cup chopped banana

1⁄4 cup chopped mango

1⁄4 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)

1 tablespoon shredded sweetened coconut

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Lay waffles flat on a dry surface. With a rolling pin, flatten waffles as much as

possible. Evenly drape a waffle over each side of a 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan, so

they resemble upside-down tacos.

Bake until crispy and firm, about 10 minutes.

Remove from pan, and let cool completely, about 10 minutes.

Place all fruit in a medium bowl, and toss to mix.

Evenly divide fruit mixture between waffle taco shells. Top with Cool Whip and

shredded coconut. Yum!

 

Freezy Black Forest Whoopie Pie

Entire recipe: 157 calories, 2g fat, 150mg sodium, 38.5g carbs 9.5g fiber, 18g sugars, 4g protein

Ingredients

1 Vitalicious Deep Chocolate VitaTop, partially thawed

1⁄4 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)

5 frozen unsweetened pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed, patted dry, halved

Directions

Carefully slice VitaTop in half lengthwise (like you would a hamburger bun),

so that you are left with 2 thin round "slices."

In a small bowl, fold halved cherries into Cool Whip.

Spoon and spread Cool Whip mixture onto the bottom Vita slice. Top with the

other slice to form a sandwich.

Place on a plate and freeze until filling is firm, about 1 1⁄2 hours. Bite in!

 

Snickers Madness Brownies

158 calories, 3.5g fat, 285mg sodium, 30g carbs, 2g fiber, 16.5g sugars, 2.5g protein

Ingredients

1 box moist-style devil's food cake mix (15.25 to 18.25 ounces)

One 15-ounce can pure pumpkin

1⁄4 cup fat-free, low-fat, or light caramel dip

1⁄4 cup chopped peanuts

2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan with

nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, mix cake mix with pumpkin until smooth and uniform. Spread

batter into the baking pan, and smooth out the top.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.

Let cool completely, about 1 1⁄2 hours.

Drizzle brownies with caramel, and sprinkle with peanuts and chocolate chips. Yum!

 

Freezy PB Pie Cups

(1 pie cup): 134 calories, 6g fat, 132mg sodium,16g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 8g sugars, 4g protein

Ingredients

1⁄2 cup reduced-fat creamy peanut butter

4 ounces (about 1⁄2 cup) fat-free cream cheese

1⁄4 cup powdered sugar

1⁄2 cup light vanilla soymilk

One 8-ounce container Cool Whip Free (thawed)

3 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups.

In a large bowl, combine peanut butter with cream cheese. With an electric mixer

set to medium speed, beat until uniform.

Reduce speed to low. Continue to beat while gradually adding powdered sugar,

followed by soymilk. Beat until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.

Fold in 1 cup Cool Whip until uniform. Evenly distribute mixture among the cups

of the muffin pan.

Spread remaining Cool Whip over the mixture, and sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Freeze until firm, at least 3 1⁄2 hours. Mmmm!
